Celebrate National ParkRx Day with Yoga in the Park
April 23, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Celebrate National ParkRx Day at the Mound City Group Visitor Center on Sunday, April 23rd with FREE Yoga in the Park. All fitness levels welcome!
National ParkRx Day is a national celebration promoting the growing movement of prescribing parks and nature to patients to improve human health. Additionally, National ParkRx Day encourages everyone to start seeing visits to parks and public lands as very important parts of their health. In 2015, the U.S. Surgeon General released a call to action to promote walking and walkable communities. National ParkRx Day builds on this call to action and provides citizens with parks and green spaces to promote public health.
Bring your own yoga mat, blanket or towel and enjoy a beautiful morning in the park as you stretch the body, mind and spirit. If weather does not permit an outdoor class, we will gather in the visitor center auditorium. Classes last approximately 60 minutes. For more information, call the Mound City Group Visitor Center: 740-774-1126.
This is the first in a series of Yoga in the Park programs that will be offered at Hopewell Culture National Historical Park this year.
