Lunch, beverages, and nutritious snacks are included in the fee.

McKinney Path

During the day you will connect with nature, immerse yourself in mindful practices, and learn new clinical applications of yoga and meditation within a small class setting. Mindful philosophies can inform and nurture our work. This training is desiged to explore the science of mindfulness and to help you create your own set of clinical tools.

Research has found that mindful techniques such as yoga and meditation have proven benefits for both mental and physical well-being, and they can be easily incorporated into our work with clients. This day will include gentle hatha yoga, body appreciation exercises, walking meditation, pranayama techniques, and guided meditations. We will also include time for personal and professional reflection.

Lunch will be provided with vegan, as well as dairy and gluten-free options. Tasty, nutritious snacks and beverages will also be served throughout the day. In addition, after 4 pm, attendees are free to explore the grounds and hiking trails.
