Adult Field Course: Movement and Mindfulness in the Mountains for more Health, Healing and Happiness
Jul 29 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Grandfather Mountain

Most of us struggle with physical, mental and/or emotional stress. I used to struggle with all three at the same time! In this course, I’ll share tools, tips and techniques that I used to achieve profound health, healing and happiness including yoga, meditation and outdoor mindfulness. Though designed for beginners, students with more intermediate skills are encouraged to join. Yoga mats can be provided if you don’t have one but you are welcome to bring your own. Everyone should bring a pen and a journal. As a bonus, you’ll also receive a free resource after the course to keep you on the path to continued self care.

Miranda Peterson Harton is an RYT500 yoga teacher, hiker, mom, wife and entrepreneur based in Western North Carolina. After quitting corporate life in 2015, she took a sabbatical during which did her first 200 hours of yoga teacher training in India, hiked around the world (including the Himalayas, Andes and Alps) and studied meditation with Buddhist monks in Thailand and Myanmar. She founded Namaste in Nature in 2017 which hosts yoga hikes and retreats that combine yoga, hiking and meditation with incredible mountains, waterfalls and sunsets. She completed her advanced 300 hours of yoga training at Asheville Yoga Center where she also continues to teach.
