Parklands Explorer: Pathways to Wellness

Parklands Explorer: Pathways to Wellness, presented by Trilogy Health Services and The Bufford Family Foundation

In 2018, Parklands Explorers embarked on a pathway to wellness to better mind, body, and spirit. In 2019, the free program at The Parklands of Floyds Fork will continue its tradition of adventure and health by offering monthly wellness activities, such as yoga, paired with meditative, mindful hikes. Community members of all ages are invited to join Parklands Interpretive Rangers on the second Saturday of each month, starting March through October, to embark on a pathway to wellness for body and mind. 

Join us for our next Parklands Explorer program on Saturday, October 12. From improving flexibility and building muscle strength to reducing stress and blood pressure, yoga has many health benefits. Join certified instructor, Jamie Turner, for a beginner-friendly yoga class at the PricewaterhouseCoopers Pavilion in Beckley Creek Park. Yoga class will begin at 9:00am. Please bring a water bottle and your own yoga mat. This activity is best suited for participants ages 12 and up. Immediately following yoga, Parklands interpretive staff will lead a meditative, forest-bathing hike on the Black Willow Trail. The roughly 2 mile round trip hike will be of easy difficulty on gravel path. Please dress for the weather, wear sturdy walking shoes, and bring a bottle of water.

We hope you will join us on this pathway to wellness as we improve mind, body, and spirit. Participation is FREE, we just ask that you bring a healthy sense of exploration and a sturdy pair of boots!
