PLaY is so happy to offer you this fun and interesting day here in the beautiful Catskill Mountains!

Start your day with a wonderful Yoga class at 10am with none other then our beloved @YogaDan. Yoga Dan (Daniel Gottlieb) is a NYC-based Detroit transplant specializing in Sports / Performance / Recovery Programming. NPI-Certified Posture Specialist (NPI-CPSTM) With 20+ years’ experience, YD started his athletic career playing college basketball. Due to a severe back injury his basketball career was cut short. Frustrated with the lack of progress using conventional methods YD discovered yoga and healed himself back to recovery and full strength. It is through this experience that he honed his knowledge of bio-mechanics. Today he’s developed a practice that brings together his passions for sports and yoga to create a wholistic approach to wellness with a focus on injury prevention and rehabilitation.

Then we’ll break feeling restored and renewed and share a meal and stories with like minded friends.

After lunch , we follow the inimitable Moe Lemire for a fascinating snowshoe through his beloved catskill mountains.

Now, more then ever, we need to be able to reconnect to what brings us joy, allows us to play, and appreciate being alive. During the pandemic , we may need to become more creative in finding play, but the science supports the importance ; especially during these challenging times.

The importance of play for mental, emotional, and physical health can not be minimized. Too many of us have decided doing something “just for fun” has limited value. Perhaps we feel there’s no time for play or have just forgotten how to do it, but we’ve lost something so vital to a life worth living.

What play gives is access to is that feeling of losing sense of time, and an abandonment of self-consciousness that psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihaly refers to as “flow” – complete absorption in a creative, playful or otherwise challenging activity. Whats the upside? Firstly, we’re happier! Additionally, it relieves stress, we’re more creative, and we build healthier relationships.

“Play is not a frill. Its what makes us fully human” says psychologist Michael Alcee, PHd. Consider choosing from all the wonderful PLaY options – physical (Yoga , of course!) Social play , and outdoor play . Just give yourself permission and jump in!
