Forest Yoga & Intro to Forest Bathing

with the City of Grand Rapids Parks & Recreation

Join us as we partner up with the City of Grand Rapids Parks & Recreation for another 4-week class series at Ken-O-Sha Park!


Step away from the hustle of the city for a short walk into the forest and a yoga class among the trees during these 1.25-hr wellness classes, where you’ll enjoy mindful time in nature, release stress and anxiety, and learn a little about the forest environment and the health benefits we receive when we spend time there.
