Chakra Tea & Yoga Retreat

Join me for a nourishing and restorative day of self study and exploration. This is such a perfect time for us to gather in practice to envision and cultivate inner and outer layers of ourselves. One month before our awakening into spring at the equinox, still held by the darkness of winter and inspired by the returning of the light. This time grants us greater access to our inner landscape and the call to skillfully choose what seeds we are planting. 

Saturday February 23 from 12-5PM, I will be leading a half-day retreat at BEAUTIFUL Ballentine Farms in Waterford, VA. Join me in carving out the TIME for intentional self-reflection and refinement within the framework of the chakra system. The 7 chakras that we will explore are the main energy centers in the body that express their harmonious frequencies or imbalanced vibrations in our lives through patterns of beliefs and behaviors that manifest physically, emotionally and spiritually. We will dive in through lecture and lively discussion, journaling from specific prompts, guided contemplations and meditations, all levels yoga practices with luxurious sound bowl savasanas, and specifically formulated herbal teas for each chakra.

Tea and infused water will be provided. If you need to bring food with you please feel free to bring a light snack.

Herbal Aphrodisiacs for Valentines Day!

Join me for this live webinar exploring some traditional herbs and foods proven to have physiological effects that warrant their classification as aphrodisiacs. Herbs can enhance our sex drive by addressing our stress, sleep patterns, hormone balance, reproductive health and our overall vitality. We will look at the the energetics of each plant and the way they uniquely act on our organs, tissue states and body/mind systems. Information on the fundamental patterns of common sexual challenges will be discussed and explained alongside the range of body/mind constitutions that each of us are governed by. Plants work by bringing our physical, energetic and spiritual bodies back toward harmony and balance. It is the dynamic equilibrium of these bodies that will provide the ground for a healthy, enjoyable and empowering sexual drive and experience.
