In 2013 Sandy fell in love with the calming flow of TriYoga. Ever since, she’s been enjoying and exploring the embodied wisdom that’s revealed through the power of peaceful focus accompanied by a conscious breath. After studying with TriYoga teachers Theresa Shay, Citrini Ware, and Matt Beigle, Sandy received her TriYoga Basics certification in the spring of 2016. A native of Annapolis, Maryland, she lived and worked in Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia before moving to Boalsburg. With its abundance of nature and local food, Central Pennsylvania has captured her heart. She is happy to call it home, and excited to share the gifts of yoga with her new community.

Mindfulness Nature Walk with Mark Agrusti, RYT-500

Workshop Description:

Join Mark Agrusti, RYT-500, for a pleasant mindfulness walk within the serene natural areas surrounding the festival. This nature walk is an invitation to step back from the bustle & busy-ness of everyday life, reconnect with the natural world, and to enjoy the peace that we uncover when living fully within our present-moment experiences. When we mindfully walk through nature with openness & awareness, we are reminded that we too are a part of the natural world and we begin to recognize our interconnection with everything that is. This hike will include simple, guided mindfulness meditation practices to assist us in focusing on the sights, sounds, smells, and sensations of our journey through the woods. Our walk will conclude with a sharing circle; an opportunity for us to gather together to share our experiences and realizations from the hike.

 

Location: Boardwalk @ Millbrook Marsh, State College, PA
Date: Oct. 22nd
Time: 2:30 – 3:10pm (Session 1) and 3:30 – 4:10pm (Session 2)
