Adventure East to Host Wellness Retreat at Trustees’ Bullitt Reservation on Oct. 17

SUNDERLAND — Adventure East, a new outdoor tour company based in Sunderland, will host a variety of experiences this fall for people who want to have fun outside in the Connecticut River Valley. Adventure East collaborates with a number of local organizations, including the Trustees of Reservations and its Bullitt Reservation property in Ashfield and Conway.

On Sunday, Oct. 17, Adventure East instructors Ami-Jean Aubin and Max Alaghband will lead a one-day wellness retreat at the Trustees’ Bullitt Reservation property consisting of mindful forest bathing, grounding, and gentle outdoor yoga, as well as a farm-to-table meal where guests can reflect and connect.

Aubin is a forest bathing and outdoor mindfulness guide. “There are few things that I enjoy more than being with a group of people in the forest while attempting to unravel these great mysteries of the natural world,” she said.

Alaghband is a hiking guide and yoga instructor who studied at Kripalu and in Taiwan before moving to Western Mass., where he leads people into deeper connection with themselves and with nature through outdoor yoga. “I hope to bring students to a moment of peace and connection in the midst of the chaotic times we live in,” he said.
