The Resiliency Institute is a nonprofit organization using permaculture education and design to foster nature and human connection, grow food security, and build resilient communities. Yoga is the perfect permaculture tool – it fosters personal resilience, wellbeing, and social connection.
Because of the complementary benefits of yoga to permaculture and resilience, we will now be offering regular yoga at The Resiliency Institute. Located on The Conservation Foundation’s historic McDonald Farm in Naperville, The Resiliency Institute offers a beautiful edible Forest Garden as well as a welcoming indoor space for classes. When the weather allows, we will experience yoga outside, surrounded by gardens and nature. We will move through vinyasa, pranayama, meditation, and craft an herbal tea with plants from the garden and farm. Yoga, tea, and nature connection for regeneration and resilience – a perfect way to start your day.
Sunday morning class is family-friendly; Saturday class is adult/older teens only please. Beginners are welcome. Bring a yoga mat and beach towel or cushion. In the case of inclement weather, class will be held indoors.
$15/individual. Pre-registration is required. Registration deadline Friday, October 25th. http://www.theresiliencyinstitute.net/learn/learn-classes/ Please make us aware of any physical limitations so that class can be welcoming for all; however, if limitations are significant, please consider private yoga sessions with Allison as an alternative.
Class is taught by Dr. Allison Mitch, a physical therapist and healing arts practitioner (yoga, reiki), ecologist, part time professor, and mom – an eclectic professional and personal mix that birthed her own WILD woman through the recognition of the connection and depth with all of life. In her circles, she seeks to create a sacred and inviting space for self-reflection, meditation, healing, and reconnection with nature for the return of soulfulness, or “re-wilding.”
Location is 10S404 Knoch Knolls Rd. Naperville. For more information, call Connie Kollmeyer at 630-477-9910.
