Wellness and Mindfulness Resources

We have been in the process of rolling out free, drop-in video conference based mindfulness classes starting the first week of April, and now due to social distancing, the timing couldn’t be better. If you want to start or strengthen your mindfulness practice, please consider attending some of these video-conference based classes, taught by some of TNT’s amazing mindfulness guides.

Join Colin aka “Wingman” Epic Experience’s camp director on a walk right out front your door. We want you to know that Mama Lou & Wingman are thinking about each and everyone of you during this trying time. We are constantly aware of the every changing impact of the Corona Virus and will make sure that all of our decisions made for our community are putting you first.

Ladies AND GENTLEMEN, join us for a quick lesson in Ballroom Dancing. Epic Experience is committed to keep us engaged and moving during this Corona Virus pandemic. Whether you are joining as a single or coupled up, everyone can learn a few basic ballroom dances. You may think you have ‘two left feet’ and cannot dance but I can promise that you’ll enjoy learning the basics. We’ll be starting with swing then adding waltz, foxtrot and polka depending on our quarantine weeks!

“Bugaboo” Piper Gould comes to you from Denver Colorado. She is an alumni camper of Epic Experience from summer 2019 and a volunteer. She will teach a virtual yoga class ending in a guided meditation on various dates. This will be beginner level and we hope you and your family will join us as we practice social distancing while keeping healthy during these times!
