The day of the walk, participants will gather at the Boettler Park entrance of Southgate Park. The walk starts at the entrance and will be led by Cleveland Clinic Akron General Lifestyles Yoga Instructors, which follows the Mindful Walk, a 1.14-mile trail with ten mindful stations.
The goal of the mindfulness walk is to promote mindfulness through the components focus and clarity. Mindfulness is being aware of or bringing attention to this moment in time, deliberately and without judging the experience.
