A public garden & cultural center

Wellness

Many of us experience a profound sense of wellbeing when we visit a garden. In fact, connecting visitors to nature in this and many other ways is central to Wave Hill’s mission as a public garden and cultural center. 

Meditation Workshops will continue to take place outdoors seasonally. Also continuing is our tradition of offering a free session of meditation the day after Thanksgiving. Registration is not required for this event, which is free with admission to the grounds.

Wellness Workshops will continue to be a feature each season. DIY workshops highlight plant medicine and herbal essenses. 

Yoga is offered in partnership with Yoga Haven, which has studios in Tuckahoe and Scarsdale. Sessions take place each summer, with an onsite rain location, then return each spring. All levels welcome. Participants should bring their own mat. 

Register online and, day of, onsite at the Perkins Visitor Center. (Reservations may not be made by telephone.) Online registration closes at 8AM on the day of the session. Cancellations must be made by 3PM the Friday before; after that, refunds will not be made.  Registration opens onsite at 9:30AM in the Perkins Visitor Center. Drops-ins for indoor sessions will be accommodated as space permits. Participants must present a Member’s ID card or a printed program registration form at the front gate.

Support for wellness programs is provided by The William Froelich Foundation.
