Sharing the joy of the woods with others is what drew Yvonne to Imagine Well Being. She particularly enjoys events at Blueridge Mountain Retreat that create space to breathe fresh mountain air and refresh one’s soul. She has fond memories of her years as a Girl Scout and then a Girl Scout leader, going into the woods to explore trees and plants, cooking over campfires and camping overnight. The best camping she ever did was sleeping in a hammock in the Amazon jungle! While she was never athletic, through the Wellness Community, she learned tai chi. Then she moved to yoga, visualization, and meditation. Knowing all of this was helpful during the isolation of the pandemic when she could find herself in the present moment, not wishing to be elsewhere.
