Practicing "Zen" at Tryon Estates

March 24, 2016

With a class size of about 22 people, the weekly "Zen" adult coloring classes are a popular new activity at Tryon Estates. The participants are given basic starter supplies (markers and pictures) and each class begins with a reminder of the therapeutic value of working both the left and right sides of the brain, some relaxation tips and soft background music. "One of my favorite parts of the classes is taking a look at their masterpieces at the end of each session,” says Life Engagement Coordinator Sara Staton.
