Time for a Time-out!
Thursday, 24/5/18 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm
We’re kicking off the summer with an afternoon of sport, movement and inspiration, and you’re invited to participate in an event dedicated entirely to health and relaxation in the open air, facing the sunset, with the blooming gardens in the background
In honor of World Parks Day, on 24/5/18, we will run an event at Ramat Hanadiv dedicated entirely to connecting between health and physical activity in nature. During this event you’ll be able to participate in a range of workshops, including yoga, qi gong, tai chi, Nordic walking, pilates and drawing.
Many studies emphasize the positive effect of physical activity in nature. Physical activity in nature in comparison to other environments is linked to a higher level of vitality, as well as positive effects on mental health. Even short visits to a natural environment lead to positive emotions, reduced illness, and increased longevity and feelings of well-being.
Therefore, Ramat Hanadiv is happy to offer you a different afternoon experience of workshops in the relaxing and magical atmosphere of the Gardens.
Participants will also be able to enjoy the pleasant seating area, and relax with refreshments, while listening to the ambient background music.
At 7:00 pm in the Visitors Pavilion, the Paralympic swimmer, Keren Leibowitz will give a lecture: “On the Way to Gold”. In her moving lecture seasoned with humor, Leibowitz tells her personal story – a story of determination, self-fulfillment, incredible motivation, and of course, excellence.
Yoga – a spiritual philosophy and physical-spiritual exercise usually practiced for health and enjoyment. The aim in yoga is to achieve a union between awareness and the spiritual self. This is a state in which the emotions are internalized and there are no thoughts to distract one’s attention.
Tai chi – a popular Chinese martial arts that is practiced for both self-defense and health reasons, and is characterized by low muscle tone and particular attention to the body.
Qi gong – A holistic body art based on exercises that free and balance body and soul. A combination of movement, breathing, stability, and meditation, it promotes health, spirituality, and quality of life as well as combat skills. This workshop will offer pleasant exercises with music accompaniment, in a sharing, magical atmosphere.
Nordic walking – walking with the aid of walking sticks designed especially for this sport that allow the walker to use up to 90% of the body’s muscles – and all this in one sports activity. Nordic walking is excellent for releasing stress in the neck and shoulder muscles, and has been found to ease pain in the back, knee and hip joint.
Pilates on the move – the participants will experience pilates on mats accompanied by music. The workshop will emphasize breathing and lengthening, and harmonious movement of the body while blending in with the surrounding natural environment.
Drawing in nature – anyone can become an artist when inspired by the nature around us.
