Studies have shown that walking 10,000 steps a day will lead to sustainable weight control and improved cardiovascular health. It’s easy and fun to count your steps at the Arboretum because we’ve already done it for you. Simply enjoy your walk and take in the natural wonders of the Arboretum. Trails at the Arboretum have been measured for the number of steps an adult or child will take to complete them. You won’t even realize that you are getting exercise!
You can do yoga on your own. If you have a mobile phone with a QR scanner, you can access suggestions for yoga poses located at various cyber stations around the Lake Loop Trail. The poses are demonstrated by Olympic gold-medal-winner Shannon Miller.
