I was thrilled to join Northampton community group Save Our Street Trees at Delapré Abbey in May for the Urban Tree Festival Northampton – and branch out with some tree yoga!
The mini-festival on May 21st, part of the nationwide Urban Tree Festival, offered a day of tree-themed fun for families to help raise funds for Save Our Street Trees.
Between 2-5pm, I explored trees big and small with two free children’s tree yoga workshops. The feedback from the day was fantastic, with more than 40 children taking part in our tree adventure. We did fun warm-ups, balances, stretches, breathing exercises, and a beautiful, guided tree relaxation. Outdoor yoga among the trees is a wonderful way to boost mood.
It felt great to collaborate with a local campaign group like Save Our Street Trees. This group works hard to promote, protect and plant trees in urban Northampton. Learn more or donate towards its tree-planting projects at saveourstreettrees.org.
