Explore Patapsco Valley State Park on a yoga hike with AmeriCorps program volunteer Maria Reusing. The 90-minute hike covers a little more than two miles and “has yoga, exercise, meditation, hiking with strength training and balancing stops along the way,” says Reusing.
AmeriCorps provides funds to organizations and agencies committed to using national service to address community needs in education, public safety, health and the environment.
“It’s similar to the Peace Corps, but the volunteer work is done here in America,” explains Reusing, who has a bachelor’s degree in environmental science from Towson University and is certified as a yoga instructor.
The only requirements for the outing are an enjoyment of yoga, comfortable clothes to wear, proper footwear and water.
The group meets at the Hilton Nature Center located off Hilton Avenue in Catonsville. Suitable for all ages. To sign up, call 410-461-5005. This is a free activity, but donations are welcome.
