Wellness in the Woods was started by a group of yoga instructors, herbalists and wellness enthusiasts who are excited to share their knowledge of what aids them in their wellness journey. The founders of this program have a long-standing history with Wautoma and even the summer camp where WITW is held. They have been gathering in Wautoma for mini wellness retreats for years to help themselves grow and expand and sometimes even to heal. They wanted to share these experiences of growth and healing on a larger scale which is how Wellness in the Woods began.
“My family has been camping at the Camp Lakotah campground since my father was about 3 (1966). It has been such a significant part of my life, my family’s lives, and my friend’s lives. When my wellness journey began about 11 years ago, I found myself retreating to Wautoma and each time found myself growing exponentially in my yoga, meditation and wellness practices. Sharing this on a larger scale has been a dream of mine and I’m beyond excited to share it through Wellness in the Woods.”
