Guide offers zen session at Bird Park

Walpole’s Bird Park will be full of peaceful breathing on Aug. 25 when yoga instructor Ashley Brayden leads a free guided meditation session at the park’s Music Court.

The half-hour will focus on ways to breath more fully, increase awareness, and stay in the present moment. No experience is necessary.

The meditation begins at 1 p.m. and follows an hour-long yoga class held at the same spot. Participants in that class should bring a water bottle and beach towel or yoga mat. Registration is not required, but appreciated at or by contacting Maura at


The price for the yoga class is $9 for members of The Trustees or $15 for nonmembers.
