Spring into Summer –
Three half day workshops, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm; Come enjoy a half day retreat set in a beautiful, pastoral setting. Each day, we explore different combinations of exercises including yoga, stretch, Pilates, Nia® followed by discussion, relaxation and tea. Next, a guest presenter provides insight into a new practice that we may not be familiar with: the first guest presentation. "Belly Blessing", demonstrates how belly dance offers us much more than fun, physical exercise and fantasy. In fact, women everywhere report their interest and experience with the dance has made a powerful difference in their lives for mental, physical, psychic and spiritual healing. On the second day, "Find your Life's Passion", facilitated by Life Coach Clare Harlow, will show how an individual can make choices and pursue new directions that are in sync with their personality and lifestyle. On the third day, a Feng Shui expert will discuss the Chinese Art of Placement, and how Feng Shui can bring balance and serenity into one's life (health, wealth, family, relationships, career, friends, fame, children, and knowledge) by recognizing blockages and finding ways to alleviate them. Each day's workshop will end with a nutritious homemade lunch served on the patio, weather permitting.
