2018 FoHVOS Force of Nature Hike Series for Women and Girls
Inspired by our pilot hike last fall, Friends of Hopewell Valley Open Space is presenting a series of 6 "Force of Nature" hikes, partnering with   RomYoga to host hiking, forest bathing, yoga and meditation on open space in the Hopewell Valley! Slow down and become immersed in the natural environment. Tune into the smells, textures, tastes and sights of the forest. (Forest Bathing does not include bathing in water, see our recent blog Forest Bathing in the Hopewell Valley! )
Yogi, life coach, and wellness expert Romy Toussaint will lead wellness hikes for women and girls that will include a guided meditation and forest bathing experience at the Mount Rose Preserve, Baldpate Mountain, Fiddler’s Creek Preserve, Thompson Preserve and a New Preserve!
