Instructor: Nadine Mazzola

Relax and refresh through mindfulness practices, sensory awareness, and nature.

What to expect: A guided experience in the Orangerie where you will walk around the conservatory and stop and sit together. We will focus on our senses to develop an immediate connection with the plants. This is a very relaxed, slow, and mindful way of walking. The walk should last about 1.5 hours and we will finish with a Shinrin Yoku tea and a small snack. The conservatories are warm so you can dress in comfortable clothing.
