Give thanks! Cultivating an Attitude of Gratitude

Can feeling a sense of gratitude influence your health? Yes!
So what exactly is gratitude, and how do we find it?
Join Megan Davis in this 3 class series, where we will explore how gratitude affects our physiology, emotions, and even our relationships. Like a muscle, our sense of gratitude can be strengthened with practice. Each session will include exercises designed to cultivate gratitude {including meditation, journaling, and work with mantras}, along with a gentle yoga practice and breath work. The heart of this series is supported by the work of Dr. Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay and current research data. Participants will be encouraged to create their own gratitude ritual by the end of the series, as a powerful step toward a healthier, happier self.

#GIRLPOWER: Fall Yoga Retreat

#Girlpower fuses yoga and community to meet the unique needs of tween girls

Fall is a busy and hectic time that can be super fun, as well as stressful to our physical, emotional and mental health. This one day retreat is a beautiful opportunity for girls to pause, connect and reflect. Our yoga practice will be challenging and nourishing at the same time, offering space to release energy and build confidence. Mindfulness meditation, guided relaxation, journaling and group discussion will center around self care, and developing an appreciation for healthy minds, bodies and spirits. Girls will leave with a toolbox of practical skills to help them manage stress, and a few "zen" take- aways too!

Led by Megan Davis, LISW, CYT | Certified Children's Yoga Teacher, Clinical Social Worker

* NO YOGA EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! Appropriate for girls ages 9-13.
