Studies have shown that spending time outside, and incorporating nature into your daily life, can greatly benefit your mental and physical wellbeing. In support of “World Mental Health Day: make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority,” on Monday, October 10, you’re invited to Rowing Dock for a day of FREE outdoor programming designed to give you the opportunity to connect, reflect, and reset.
Daytime programming will include an hour of free paddling. Evening programming will begin with an expert lakeside chat about modern mental health featuring Alyssa Cornett, and hosted by Recalibrate, followed by a guided sunset sound bath and meditation, led by ATX Yoga Girl.
*All activities are free to all, but advance registration is required.*
one hour free paddle
Being on or near water has such an incredibly positive benefit for our bodies and minds. To encourage self-care and reflection, Rowing Dock will provide all registrants an hour of free paddling in the boat of their choice (stand up paddle board, kayak, or canoe). For interested guests, a free self-guided mindfulness activity will be provided to be completed on the lake. Regular rental rates will apply for any rental time over one hour.
lakeside chat + soundbath
Our evening programming will begin with an expert lakeside chat that dives into educational basics of modern mental health and how nature can fuel mental wellness. Hosted by Recalibrate, the discussion will feature Alyssa Cornett, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Following the discussion, join us for a sunset sound bath and meditation on the dock, led by Cynthia Bernard from ATX Yoga Girl.
