About the Event
Our afternoon combines a sociable guided walk to Steall Falls with wild mindful practices including yoga and chi gong. Our session finishes with hot drinks and tasty seasonal treats. Leave with body and mind energised and restored; your spirits lifted and a smile on your face!
WHAT TO EXPECT:
- Walking on rough and rocky paths with a steady climb through Nevis Gorge. The route is on well-made paths in beautiful scenery. It does involve rock steps and there are some steep drops at the side of the path.
- Learn simple mindful, grounding practices that will connect you with the energy of the season.
- Experience wild yoga and chi gong in one of the most beautiful places in Lochaber.
- Time for quiet reflection and meditation.
- The opportunity to share your experiences, chat and connect with like-minded people.
- Lots of fresh air, exercise, great company, stunning scenery and of course, cake!
