Transition into Fall with ACT’s Mindfulness Series
LISBON – The season changing is a good time to slow down, reflect, and tune in to ourselves and the natural world. Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) is offering two opportunities to do this. Its new Mindfulness Series features an outdoor yoga practice and a meditative forest walk.
First is Outdoor Yoga on Saturday, Sept. 8 at 10 a.m. overlooking ACT conservation land on Pearl Lake in Lisbon. Katrine Barclay from Wellness AT Work, and Abby Pisegna of Root to Bloom Studio will lead the class. Whether you are a yoga first timer or seasoned practitioner, you’ll enjoy individual instruction and an emphasis on listening to your own body. Enjoy yoga outside in a safe, accessible and FUN way with a great view from a private home.
Program cost is $10/person to support ACT’s land conservation efforts as well as class instruction. Advanced registration is required. Please pre-register on the web at http://www.act-nh.org – need help? Call the office at (603) 823-7777. Once registered, you will receive an e-mail with details of the meeting location.
Then on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 10 a.m., ACT will host a meditative walk. No walking or meditation experience required! Take this chance to go outside and engage all our senses, simply enjoy where we are, and discover what happens when we are still, when we let go of the chatter in our heads, and tune into the natural world.
Bring a journal, a sketchpad, or nothing at all. Dress according to the weather. This walk will be dog-free, but children of all ages, from 8 – 100, are encouraged to attend. The walk will be hosted by ACT Executive Director Rebecca Brown and take approximately an hour and a half. The group will meet in the parking lot of ACT’s Franconia offices in the Plain Kate’s building, 729 Main St, for sign ins and will carpool from there.
This program is free and open to the public, with a suggested $5 donation to support ACT’s land conservation efforts. Advanced registration is required. Please pre-register on the web at http://www.act-nh.org – need help? Call the office at (603) 823-7777.
ACT is all about community coming together to enjoy the outdoors and honor our natural environment. This series is intended to do the same by bringing us together to honor ourselves in nature as a community!
