Logan Kinei Nature Experiences

 

Outer Cape | Cape Cod National Seashore

 

 

 

Logan Kinei Nature Experience

 

Logan Kinei Nature Experience is a guided experience to connect with nature within the Cape Cod National Seashore and Outer Cape.  The primary activity is a nature walk or hike on one of the hand picked trails in Provincetown, Truro/N. Truro, Wellfleet, or Eastham.  Some take place on sand dunes, some on beaches, some through the woods, and some take us through all three and more.  Each location can be experienced in several ways and durations.  We have some experiences based around sunset, some based around longer more physically challenging terrain, and some based around simply being in nature.  

We all benefit from connection with nature, other people, and one's self -- Logan Kinei Nature Experiences provide you with the opportunity to do all three within the diverse beauty of Cape Cod.

Logan Kinei Mobility

 

Mobility is included in the Nature Experiences and are led by Shaun Logan, a Doctor of Physical Therapy with over 10 years of experience, and over 20 years of experience in fitness. Logan Kinei Mobility is performed in nature to allow us to connect to our bodies on a deeper level.  While the body is in the spotlight during Mobility portion, we are working on the body-mind relationship and connecting to nature through movement.  We target the major joints of the body to improve your joint control and range of motion -- with an emphasis of starting where you are right now and building on that to improve your understanding of your body and the ability of your body.

 

The intention of the mobility portion is to connect you to your body within nature within a group of people working to do the same.  Mobility classes will help guide you to being a better mover, being stronger, and being better at any physical task.

Logan Kinei Breathwork

 

Breathwork is part of the Nature Experience focused on breathing, something we do about sixteen times per minute or about 23,040 times per day, yet usually give zero attention.  Breathing is literally necessary to sustain life in our bodies in this reality.  Breathwork, which is essentially mindful breathing, has been proven to have many benefits for the body-mind, and connecting to beyond the body-mind. Breathwork is an incredible practice and tool to understand for daily use, as well as digging deeper into and understanding how your past is affecting you now.

 

What is the difference between breathwork and meditation?

In my opinion, breathwork is a form of a meditative practice or a way to get you to meditation.  Read more...
