Walk for health, connect with the trees and be part of something wonderful.
This time our wellness walk will be in the forest beneath the majestic trees of Blackwater, near Brockenhurst, where we will stroll, chat and invite you to collect some of the sounds of the landscape*. We’ll help you reduce muscle tension and increase free flowing energy with breath awareness exercises and gentle breath-led stretches before and during the walk. This will help relax the body and mind, enhancing your connection to the natural environment.
What you need: Wear comfy clothes and shoes appropriate for the weather. Bring water and/or a flask for a half way cuppa break.
*The walk is approx. 40 mins with plenty of refreshment stops, toilets and pick up points along the way. This walk is weather dependent.
Tutor: Julie Hand
With a background in fitness and dance and a Reiki II practitioner, Julie’s focus is on the therapeutic aspects of conscious movement and breath to promote health, well-being and peace of mind.
Qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga and teaching since 2003, she has since spent time studying the principles of Tibetan Yoga and works to incorporate the philosophy of Kum Nye Tibetan Healing Movement into the practice. Julie has focussed her yoga sharing on breath awareness and using it as a tool for improved well-being, relaxation and calming of the nervous system – often working on a one-to-one basis with people suffering with stress and its associated symptoms.
Julie’s teaching style is breath-led, incorporating flow and rhythm, to impart a sense of ‘Being’ in one’s body. Finding her way to the Parkinson’s Dance Science Model in 2016 was a complete joy.
