“Wild” Gentle Yoga: Yoga to Connect with Yourself and Nature

Share:

Wednesday May 19, 2021
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Join Priscilla Hayes, Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve volunteer naturalist and
certified yoga teacher, for gentle yoga that builds body awareness, strength, flexibility
and a better understanding of how humans connect to and reflect natural systems.
Week by week, in the Moss Garden, you will notice the small changes in the mosses and their companion plants. On your mat each week, you will notice the small—or not so small—changes in yourself: the community of your body, mind and spirit.

Each session will include breath exercises, yoga poses, and gentle self-care
exercises/meditations. Create an intimate awareness of your body and self surrounded by the mosses and plants as they provide you lovely fresh air and peace.
Safe social distancing will be practiced throughout each session, and participants are
asked to bring their own mats, a blanket, and any other props (a block and a strap are recommended).

Get hands on with Therapeutic Gardening

Wednesday May 19, 2021
2:00 PM

Join The Birches at Newtown during its monthly Family Caregivers’ Support Group with helpful discussions on dementia care and caregiving challenges on Wednesday, May 19, from 2-3 p.m.

As Alzheimer’s disease or dementia progresses, your loved one may become more withdrawn, but therapeutic activities like gardening can help recall pleasant memories. The Birches’ Memory Care Coordinator Armgard Kucas explores the benefits of gardening with a hands-on presentation. Bring your loved one and, together, decorate a flowerpot and plant a seedling to take home, where you can continue the nurturing therapy. Space is limited to ensure social distancing. Masks are required.

To RSVP, please call 215-497-7400.
