Last updated 3/19/2024 at 5:18pm

Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center invites the public to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life and partake in their new health-focused program, Wellness Wednesdays. This unique wellness experience provides visitors with an opportunity to start their day with a rejuvenating combination of physical activity and nature. The gardens will open at 7 a.m. every Wednesday through October. Admission to Shangri La Botanical Gardens is free of charge.

"Lace up your sneakers and come enjoy a dose of nature's healing at Shangri La. This spring, commit to healthy habits by engaging your mind and body in practices that promote your physical health, as well as nurture your mental well-being. We encourage individuals to also take advantage of the social opportunities made possible with this initiative by forming a walking group, spending quality time with friends and family or setting collaborative wellness goals together," said Marlene Cox, guest services coordinator at Shangri La.

Visitors of all ages and fitness levels are invited to experience the tranquility of early mornings in nature. During Wellness Wednesdays, walk your way to better health, energize your mind with meditation, strengthen your body with yoga, read a book or watch nature's art. Visitors are encouraged to dress comfortably, wear walking shoes and bring water to stay hydrated.

A free, guided yoga class will be offered on select Wellness Wednesdays. On March 20, visitors may enjoy adult gentle yoga in the garden to move, stretch and awaken their mind and body. Participants will learn unique connections within the body to increase muscle elasticity, loosen joints and gain flexibility. The class starts promptly at 10:30 a.m. Participants are encouraged to check in starting at 10 a.m., as well as bring their own yoga mat and wear comfortable shoes.

"We're thrilled to launch Wellness Wednesdays as a part of our dedication to provide opportunities for individuals to foster a deeper connection with nature. Spending time outdoors can enhance your mind, body and soul. Step into serenity at Shangri La Botanical Gardens during Wellness Wednesdays this spring," said Cox.

Shangri La Gardens and Nature Center is located at 2111 West Park Avenue in Orange, Texas. For more information, please visit
