Weekend of Wellness June 26 – 27, 2021- Family Programs

Sunday, June 27, 2021, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm


Two health-full days of workshops and activities designed to harness the healing power of art and nature for the heart, mind, body and soul. Join us as we collectively take time to breathe, immersing ourselves in a broad-ranging slate of programs that will promote stress relief, inspire self-care and restore well-being for people of all ages, experiences, and abilities.

Programs take advantage of the rich and unique resources of the 145-acre museum campus which includes formal and native plant gardens, hiking trails, outdoor sculpture, art studios and galleries full of fine art. This program is offered in partnership with Northwell Health, The Center for Wellness and Integrative Medicine with workshops offered by Lisa Bondy E-RYT500, Director of Yoga.


Donations will be shared with The Food Pantry at Shelter Rock Church in Old Westbury. On the weekend of the event, participants are invited to bring non – perishable food items to The Manes Center.


The Museum is grateful for all of the hard work and sacrifices of Long Island’s First Responders during the Covid-19 crisis. To show our thanks, this program is offered free for nurses, doctors, and EMTs. Space is limited. To reserve your spot please email nfletcher@nassaumuseum.org.


Forest Walk

Times: Ongoing
Location: The Mansion

Take a walk through our forest in this self-guided exploration which invites families to enjoy traveling together on one of the Museum’s trails and learn to “read” nature. A sequence of pages you’ll discover along the way will share some mindful activities to try out in nature, as well as information about our natural environments. Forest Walk will be installed on our grounds and ongoing throughout the weekend.

Family Yoga Fun

Location: The Mansion

Join yoga instructor Samantha Hofsiss and take time from your busy lives to move, breath and bliss out together as a family. This program is meant to be fun and not so serious but will also be about finding peace with the people we love.

Nature, Science & Art

Mindfulness and Creativity: Make Your own Night Light

Times: 9-9:50 am    10-10:50 am    11-11:50 am

Learn how to make your own LED night light with wings. Have you ever wondered how fireflies sparkle at twilight? How do wings work? Nature is both magical and scientific at the same time. We will learn about metamorphosis and transformation. We will practice buzzing bee and butterfly breath and discuss why insects are the most important part of the ecosystem. The mystery continues!

Sculpture Adventure

Times: 9-9:50 am    10-10:50 am    11-11:50 am
Location: The Mansion

Join our educator to explore the different sculptures outside the Museum! Together we’ll discover how artists ask us to move our bodies in different ways (in, around or through), develop new ideas, and reflect on our natural world.
