Mindful Hiking Series: An Exploration of the Senses

July 23, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Mindful Hiking Series: An Exploration of the Senses

Intentional time spent outdoors has been proven to reduce blood pressure, lower cortisol levels, improve concentration and memory, and more. Join us for a 2-hour outdoor experience rooted in mindfulness. You can expect light movement to prepare the body, a mindful walk between one and three miles, and nature meditation. Each outing, we will explore one of the five senses as we walk through Schenley Park.

July 23 – We will slow down and pay attention to what we can see. Look for details and patterns you might not have noticed otherwise.

August 12 – Nature sounds have been shown to improve health and well-being. This week, we will get quiet and listen for what we can hear.

September 9 – What earthy aromas or essential oils can we smell out on the trail?

October 6 – You will be invited to “hike with hands,” or feel the different textures of tree bark, moss, and more.

November 5 – Using our sense of smell, we will imagine how things might taste. We will also share a tea ceremony to close out the series.

This mindful outdoor experience is suitable for all levels of experience and ability. Please wear comfortable walking shoes; bring clothing layers and a water bottle.

Your guide will be Alicia Broudy, who has been practicing and teaching yoga for 12 years. She is certified as a Mindful Outdoor Guide through Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health.

Starting Location: Outside the Schenley Park Visitors Center (101 Panther Hollow Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15213)
