The Easy Tea-sy Move & Pick Workshop
August 21 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm$80.00
Would you love a day filled with herbal tea harvesting, improving your mobility in the garden, and breathing in the farm fresh air with a QiGong session?
We have you covered in the upcoming “Easy Tea-sy Move & Pick Workshop” at Lochland Botanicals in August. Join Anna MacIntosh from AMalignment and our farm staff to learn how to harvest your favourite tea herbs we grow here at the farm, while also taking a movement class all about improving the various bits of body moves we need to sustain the garden chores close to the ground.
The 2.5 hr workshop will start with a tea harvesting and functional movement class that will get you down and dirty with the basics of squatting fundamentals. We will take a cool down and refresh break for some water, shade, and cold brewed herbal tea (if you bring your own travel mug), and then we will finish with a 20-30 minute QiGong practice to finish off your farm day with some flowing moves.
How to come prepared for the workshop:
- Yoga strap – If you have a yoga strap, please bring it along with you for the movement part of class. If you do not have a strap, we will arrange for one to be available for you for the class.
- A travel cup/mug if you would like to enjoy some cold brewed herbal tea.
- Clothing that allows you to move, get up and down to the ground, and you don’t mind getting a little dirty for farm work.
- Water!!! Enough water to stay hydrated during the movement sessions + sunscreen and other outdoor protection gear you normally use.
Mobility considerations for participants:
The workshop will require walking, light farm harvesting work, and getting up and down from the ground.
Anyone medically cleared for movement outdoors are welcome (adults – over 18 years old or 16 if taking the workshop with their parent/guardian)
Participants will also be able to Build-A-Bouquet, be treated with herbal refreshments and snacks, and receive a bag of farm goodies to take home and enjoy.
