Experience the deep peace and simple joy of slow walking meditation in the Arboretum gardens. Each walking meditation practice begins with a series of very gentle Qigong movements. Qigong is an easy, mindful movement practice that supports the body's natural healing processes, promotes healthy circulation, invites a sense of inner calm, and releases tension from the body. Accessible to all ages and all bodies. Group size is limited so that physical distancing can be observed. Participants should wear loose, comfortable clothing and adhere to current safety guidelines.


Jenne Sluder is a qualified mental health professional and is certified through the International Association of Yoga Therapists as a trauma-sensitive therapeutic yoga instructor. She holds a Master’s in Transpersonal Psychology: Ecopsychology from Naropa University and specializes in mind-body approaches to improving mental and physical health. An Asheville native, Sluder works with individuals and with groups using somatic (body-based), contemplative (mindfulness-based), ecological (nature-based), and compassion-based practices.
