The Resiliency Institute offers courses, classes and events that empower people to live, grow, and build resilient lifestyles, landscapes and communities. Take courses like Permaculture Forest Gardener, Bioregional Herbalism, and Edible Wild Plants. Join us for Nature Rx with Shinrin-yoku/Forest Therapy, and Forest Yoga. Women can connect monthly during WILD Woman Project Circles. Find us throughout the Chicagoland area speaking and exhibiting about fruit tree guilds, permaculture, growing food security, renewable energy, and resiliency. Enjoy opportunities to connect at our plant sales, Permablitzs, potlucks, fundraisers and more.
Join us for an introductory outdoor yoga session to welcome the Fall season. Located on The Conservation Foundation’s McDonald farm, an historic farmstead in Naperville with an edible forest garden, we will move through vinyasa, pranayama, meditation, and craft an herbal tea. Nature connection and a mindfulness practice for regeneration and resilience – a perfect way to start your day and enjoy the abundance of Fall.
Class is family-friendly. Beginners are welcome. Please bring a yoga mat and beach towel or cushion.
In the case of inclement weather, class will be held indoors.

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.”
