The mind benefits from stillness, and the body benefits from movement.
We come together each week to raise our awareness, vibration and intention so we can live our very best life.
Each session begins with restorative yoga and eventually moves into a guided meditation w/ sound bathing to enhance our practise.
This 75 minute class is all about restoration of our mind, body and soul. Our postures are usually held for 3-5 minutes, so get ready to move inward and reap all of the benefits of slowing down the mind and opening up stagnant and/or stiff areas of our bodies.
The cherry on top: an extra long savasana / guided meditation to leave you feeling at peace, clear, confident and ready to take on whatever life throws at you!
Come to remember how good our minds and bodies are designed to feel.
Restorative Yoga & Meditation
Mindfulness & tapping are said to be "the forefront of the new healing movement" and "destined to be a top healing tools for the 21st Century".
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is simply developing the ability to focus on the present moment rather than being consumed by the chaos of your internal or external world. This practise takes pracise, and isn't just conjured up.
It's our ability to come back to being a human being rather than a human doing. In this workshop you will learn what mindfulness is and how to build it into your regular awareness and life experience.
What is EFT or Tapping?
Emotional freedom technique (EFT or tapping) is an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress. It’s also referred to as tapping or psychological acupressure.
People who use this technique believe tapping the body can create a balance in your energy system and treat pain. According to its developer, Gary Craig, a disruption in energy is the cause of all negative emotions and pain.
EFT tapping has been used to treat people with anxiety, depression, pain and even people with PTSD.
How Does EFT Work?
Similar to acupuncture, EFT focuses on the meridian points — or energy hot spots — to restore balance to your body’s energy. It’s believed that restoring this energy balance can relieve symptoms a negative experience or emotion may have caused.
There is also a series of "talk" to help you alleviate whatever pain, turmoil or trauma you are enduring.
Complex. That's a pretty good word describing a woman's life, isn't it? Why not give your mind, body and spirit the attention it's calling for?
There's so much comfort in being around your people. Your people that are there for you, going through or have gone through what you have, and are like-minded. For women, having community and support in everything going on in our lives, bodies and minds can be so helpful.
Won't it be AWESOME to be there for each other? No judgement. Just a group of women dedicated to personal growth, creating a supportive environment for one another, learn ways to restore and connect with our mind/body health, empower your mind AND soak in some self-care.
This group session will be offered at Lotus Tree in Carlyle. All women of any age and status (mom, non-mom, single, etc.) are welcome! This a place where we can get together, talk, laugh, deal with difficult emotions/times in our lives, learn about ways to restore our minds/bodies, and induldge in some quiet self-care through yoga and meditation.

She’s so much smarter than me! Ugh, I bet they’re talking about me again! Why can’t I look like her? Why can’t I get good grades? School is so boring! No one understands me. I wish I didn’t exist. I can’t take this struggle and pain anymore!
Does any of this self-talk sound familiar? Being a teen can often be overwhelming – scratch that – “overwhelming” doesn’t always do it justice. It can feel like you’re in a dark never ending tunnel with no light to be seen. It’s a time of great change mentally, emotionally and physically – but let’s just add on some extra pressures from ourselves and the world around us to really top things off! You know, what I’m talking about; body image, needing “things” (clothes, technology, makeup, hairstyles, etc.), popularity, fitting in, feeling accepted, embracing yourself… Blah! That’s a lot to try and conquer at any age!
What if I told you that you could get off of this merry-go-round of feeling down and struggling? In this workshop, not only will you discover ways to cope with your hardships, you’ll find ways to THRIVE, SHINE AND GROW! Through optional discussions, writing, and movement activities, we’ll navigate our way through this challenging time and start preparing ourselves for a fun and joyful future!
After all, life is meant to be fun!
I absolutely cannot wait to work with you all! If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to email me.
Seeker Wellness & Healing
Restorative yoga is one of the most beneficial healing practices that I have encountered. "Studies show that it decreases stress hormones, increases flexibility, improves sleep, balances the nervous system, prevents stress related changes to weight and provides recovery time from our busy lives."-Andrea Peloso. Her's what this restorative practice might be like for you:
-Still and comfortable for a long period of time.
-Less stretch/hold than a yin practice. More relaxing and falling into poses.
-Let yourself go into a deeply relaxed and/or even meditative state.
-Your senses will not be interrupted with many prompts or adjustments, unless needed, but rather you can let go and go deep within yourself.
-Calm your nervous system, negative self-talk/stories, relieve stress, and heal ailments.

Private sessions are available for kids. If your child is experiences endless worries, health issues (mentally and/or physically), difficulties sleeping, struggling with school, difficulties having positive relationships, etc. then taking part in a private mentorship program could be what's right for them! After practicing mindfulness and positive life tools/strategies - your child will be rooted in the present moment, like a young tree, with abundant space to grow and be themselves!
"By practicing mindful presence and awareness, kids learn to pause for a moment, to catch their breath, and to get a sense of what they need at this moment in time. This allows them to move out of automatic pilot mode, recognize impulses for what they are, and learn to accept that not all things in life are nice or cool. They learn to bring attention - friendly attention-to everything they do. They learn not to hide anything but instead foster understanding of their own inner world as well as that of others."-Eline Snel

Mindset Coaching for Teams/Athletes
Looking to amplify your team's coach-ability, performance and mentality?
In this Mindset Coaching program, or workshop, your athletes will learn the importance of teamwork, building each other up, how to work towards their best selves on their "off" time/team time, and how to build their confidence so they can be the best teammate/player possible.
Each athlete will come to understand that their attitude is their most powerful asset to themselves and their team. They will also learn how to bring the power back to themselves and not become a victim of any circumstances.
A positive mindset, perspective and coach-ability are arguably the most important qualities our athletes can have. Sometimes another resource or coach is just what you or your team needs, and there's no shame in that!
Build your team up to be the best they can be through this team-building and mentally strengthening program!
