How much time do you devote to deep relaxation? In this extended workshop, we'll invite our nervous systems to settle into a slow rhythm that is rarely found in the busyness of our daily lives. True self care is not a luxury but truly a necessity that allows our systems to flourish! Take time during this winter solstice to create a focus, stop, slow down, and nourish yourself.
Most restorative yoga classes are 75 to 90 minutes long. Imagine spending five hours releasing tension with fascial rolling, restorative poses, guided relaxation, breathing practices, Reiki healing and journaling. Join us and nourish yourself and find the quiet.
This retreat is led by Anne Ondrey who has trained in restorative yoga with Judith Lasater at the advanced level. Anne teaches restorative yoga teacher training, is a certified yoga therapist and is a Usui and Karuna Reiki Master. She is a former journalist and social worker who has learned the hard way that self care is survival!

Create Your Vision, Live Your Dream in 2019:
December 30th 2-4pm
Instructor: Casey Smith
Exchange: $25 if preregistered
If you are like most of us, you probably have goals for the New Year. One of the most powerful ways to manifest your goals is to start with a vision and create an intention. We’ll begin our session by participating in a brief guided meditation to allow for visualization of what you’d like to achieve in 2019 and in life as a whole. Next, we’ll add in some gentle stretching and restorative yoga to relax the body. Chakras will be tested as we relax and results will be shared. Once we have created space for our dreams to become reality, we will get cozy, sip on some tea, and work through creating vision boards together. No meditation or vision board experience is necessary- all are welcome! Get ready to make 2019 your best year yet!
Participants will receive all materials needed to create a vision board, as well as tea and a *special gift* to help manifest their dreams in 2019.

Love, Reiki, Vibration:
The best way to know Reiki is to experience it…
Join Cortney Martinelli, author of the new book Love, Reiki, Vibration for a 90 minute, informative and high-vibing workshop.
January 4th 7-8:30pm (book signing following)
We’ll start the workshop with a short and playful discussion about Reiki, vibration and chakras. Followed by a blissful practice where you’ll get to experience Reiki while indulging in three restorative yoga poses that were specifically designed for receiving the full benefits of Reiki. In the first pose, your chakras will be tested and your results will be given to you at the end of class with a chart explaining more.
Reiki is a Japanese healing technique, it is administered by gently laying hands on a person. The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words – Rei and Ki. Ki meaning life force energy. This life force energy (also referred to as vibration) is what animates us all. We want this energy to vibrate, scientifically speaking, between 62-72 MHz. But sometimes, due to lifestyle choices, we drop below 62 where we become more susceptible to stress and anxiety-related conditions (colds, diseases etc.). This is where Reiki and other high-flying lifestyle choices (like yoga!) help us to increase our ki, our prana, our vibration; restoring balance back to the physical body.
Workshop will close with the option to buy Cortney’s new book Love, Reiki, Vibration and have it signed by her at the workshop!

January 27th 12:00-3:00pm
Time: 3 hoursEverything in the field of wellness and personal growth can and should revolve around the basic concept that every-SINGLE-thing we choose to eat, think, feel and do EITHER lowers or raises our vibration. Because of this, everyone should understand how to raise their vibration. But while many have heard vague references to the concept, very few know what that means or how to do it.
This class will demonstrate how everything is determined by your personal frequency and how you can improve the quality of your mood, your physical health, your career, your intimate relationships, your family life and more – simply by learning and applying the concepts we will explore in this class.
IN THIS 3-HOUR CLASS
We will explore what vibration means
Learn four basic principles of vibration
Everything is energy
We are vibrating at a certain level
We are attracting people, places, experiences based on this level
A substance with a higher frequency can cause a lower frequency to raise
You will discover what YOUR current vibration is (YES! Bring on the quiz)
EXPERIENCE first-hand what lowers and raises your personal vibration
Leave with resources and a PERSONALIZED game plan on how to implement a few specific changes IN YOUR LIFE
You will learn in this class that it is the result of small, consistent daily choices that will RADICALLY reboot your life! After this class, you will see yourself as having far more potential than you’ve considered before – IT’S ALL IN YOUR HANDS – you will be empowered to take charge of your life!
If you are reading this, it is no accident, you are ready to RADICALLY reboot your life!!
