Wellness Wednesdays

English poet Alfred Austin said, “The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul.” This spring, feed your mind, body, and spirit with our Wellness Wednesdays program. Classes include Yoga with Lisa Alford, Find Peace and Thrive: Chair Yoga and Meditation with Selina Dominguez, and Guided Garden Walks: Exploring History and Horticulture in the Garden with a member of Hills and Dales Estate’s staff. Each class will begin at the Visitor’s Center and last one hour. $10 per person per class. Purchase more than 5 classes to receive a discounted rate of $8 per class. All classes are complimentary for Hills and Dales Estate members.

Lisa L. Alford has taught a variety of Yoga classes at The Inner Path Yoga Studio on Smith Street for 17 years. She will be teaching a Hatha style yoga class, which is a gentle, slow class for beginners that is designed to align, cleanse, and calm your body, mind and spirit. A typical class starts with gentle warm-ups that transitions into a sequence of yoga poses and ends with a short meditation. Please bring your own mat.

Selina Dominguez is the owner of Thrive Mind, Body & Soul, a well-being studio dedicated to transforming and healing the world back to love, one person and one community at a time. Through meditation and chair yoga, she will help you experience a decrease in stress, clarity of thinking, greater creativity, feelings of happiness, and peace.

Walking is not only a great way to exercise your body, but also improves your mood and you’re your memory! Take brisk guided walks through the historic Ferrell Gardens and surrounding areas of the estate while members of the Hills and Dales Estate staff explore topics ranging from history to horticulture.
