"MEDITATE & CREATE": ENVISION THE LIFE YOU WANT! VISION BOARD PLAYSHOP WITH MARIA RENNA
Sun, Jan 13 at 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Vision is merely a dream without action. – Joel Barker
Are you ready to get clear on what you need, want, value in your life? A vision board is a space to envision your dreams and a jumping off point to taking aligned actions toward those goals and intentions. This board will serve as a visual reminder of what you are working towards in your life. Beyond material things, a vision board should focus on how you want to feel! In the next few weeks, begin to collect anything that makes you feel good, that inspires and motivates you. These should be items you want to look at every day – photos, quotes, images of places you’d like to go, reminders of events or people and just about anything that will inspire you! Magazines, creative papers, glue and other materials will be supplied. We’ll begin the workshop with a heart opening, intention setting meditation before creating. Cheers to a happy and healthy 2019!!!
CHAKRA BALANCING AROMA RESTORATIVE YOGA WORKSHOP WITH DAWN PEER
Sat, Jan 19 at 2:00pm - 4:00pm
This workshop will combine the healing art of Aromatherapy with Restorative Yoga in order to bring balance to our bodies. Chakras are energy centers that occur along the midline of the body. They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our body. Their function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. Each pose in this workshop will focus on one of the seven chakras to bring balance and harmony back to the body. You will leave feeling renewed and refreshed! Restorative Yoga is supported yoga postures that help relieve the effects of chronic stress. With the support of props, such as bolsters, blocks, blankets the body relaxes releases tension and the mind gets calm and peaceful.
