Forest Yoga & Intro to Forest Bathing

With the City of Grand Rapids Parks & Recreation Department

Join us for a 4-week class series that brings together yoga & an introduction to forest bathing, hosted at Ken-O-Sha Park!

Reconnect in the Beauty of Nature:

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 youโ€™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.
