Yoga + Hiking at the Arboretum
May 21, 2017
10 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
Yoga and nature go together like peas and carrots. Sedona Alvarez has developed her Yoga + Hiking program for adventurous yogis who are ready to embrace the countless benefits that mother nature has to offer. Spend the afternoon hiking through the trails of the Overland Park Arboretum, pausing along the way to stretch and drink in the experience.
Some scientifically proven benefits of getting outdoors include:
- Stress relief. Forest therapy can lower heart rate and decrease levels of cortisol (stress hormone)
- Boosted mental energy. Exposing yourself to restorative environments (i.e., the great outdoors) relieves mental fatigue.
- Other perks: improves vision, short-term memory, sleep, concentration, sharpens thinking and creativity, boosts immunity, facilitates weight loss.
- Get into nature to enjoy overall physical + mental health and longevity while bonding with your yoga community and making lasting connections.
Regular admission to the gardens applies.
