The Hikers Path

If adventure and beauty are missing in your life, then this is your class! We’ll integrate nature journaling with hiking as an opportunity to find new vistas, and meet new friends. No journaling experience necessary. Each hike will have stopping points for journaling the splendor. We will embark on five epic hikes that will be chosen in local forests, as well as the nearby Berkshires, for a wide array of wilderness diversity and grandeur. Students should be comfortable with walking through the wilderness for a few hours each class, with appropriate food, water, bug repellant, first aid supplies, and hiking gear.

Wing Chun Kung Fu is a close-range combat system that uses sensitivity and body leverage instead of brute strength.

Finally, in session three, you will be introduced to drills that help develop sensitivity and relaxation
