Qi Gong

Come relieve stress and increase your metabolism, flexibility and strength. Qi Gong (pronounced chee-gong) is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique. The exercises include simple, slow movements (which mimic nature), meditation and focused breathing — similar to Tai Chi. Focused attention on the breath enhances functionality in the body and the mind allowing the participant to have more awareness and control over the Qi which is defined as ‘life force’ or energy.”

Qi Gong classes will be led by certified instructor, Roxanne Cumberland.

Roxanne Cumberland has studied Qi Gong for the past 10 years and holds a certification to teach through Holden Qi Gong. She is a retired Palm Beach County public school teacher and the current President of the Rare Fruit Council of Palm Beach County.

Body Flex and Gentle Yoga

Invigorating Body Flex (Feb-April): Come raise your energy level, work on your balance, strengthen muscles and core while having fun in our beautiful surroundings. Find joy in getting out and moving your body in a safe environment. Body Flex involves low impact aerobic exercises that are safe and effective for increasing range of motion, alleviating stress and pressure on the joints, and engaging the brain to boost overall energy.

Gentle Yoga (May): Come improve your mental and physical well being with gentle balance and flexibility movements and relaxing meditation. Yoga can help improve mental and physical well-being by increasing body awareness, relieving anxiety, decreasing stress, relaxing the mind, sharpening concentration and increasing flexibility. Yoga promotes better sleep, gives you more energy and better mood regulation.

Body Flex and Yoga classes are led by certified fitness/yoga instructor, Hegina Rodrigues.

Hegina Rodrigues has a background in dance and has been teaching fitness and yoga for decades. While certified in several types of yoga in the US, Brazil, Nepal and India, she enjoys teaching a variety of styles and is not limited to one type.  Her classes vary according to place and audience keeping the classes interesting, safe and fun for all abilities. She has developed her own movement and breath combinations, creating a low impact way to raise energy, improve  balance, strength and flexibility.

Experience the Garden’s tropical delights through an artist’s eyes while sketching in our display gardens.  Learn the drawing process and how to translate what you see into a sketch.

Watercolor Workshop: Explore our unique display gardens and find inspiration to paint on location! This weekly workshop will cover various watercolor techniques, color mixing, and how to capture a sense of place. Artists at all levels are welcome.
