Aromatic Yoga Nidra - May Session


with Susan Coady

Calendar May 7, 2018 at 4:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Aromatic Yoga Nidra is yogic deep relaxation combined with the sensory experience of essential oils. The Yoga Nidra experience is a luminous state of mind hovering between wakefulness and dream, which is profoundly healing. An hour of Yoga Nidra rejuvenates like 4 hours of deep sleep! The guided relaxation takes you into the subtle centers - the chakras- and the oils have been specifically blended for each one. As you rest, you will receive the oil in your palm, enjoy Reiki healing touch at head and feet, and hear the pure tones of crystal and Tibetan bowls.

Facilitated by Susan Coady, oils by Kathy Leone, healing hands of Erin Dunning.

Session 2: Monday, May 7, 2018

Time: 4:30 - 6 pm

Registration: $20 per session

Make & Take Gifts with Essential Oils (May Session) NEW!


with Joanna Wilhelm

Calendar May 3, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Learn about essential oils, how they’re made and all of their purposes. These oils can be used from making our houses smell good to replacing beauty products to supporting physical and emotional health. You’ll get to make a couple goodies, too, and get recipes to make more! These are easy to make and great to use yourself and to give as gifts. We’ll be making bath salts that double as shower bombs and room sprays (there will be choices of a Sleepytime and an appropriate seasonal-inspired one). And, as an extra bonus, some all-natural cleaner for around the house and some additional easy-peasy but good recipes. Maybe you’ve been hearing about essential oils and are curious, or maybe you just like finding ways to make gifts for others and things to use at home for yourself. In any case, we’ll have a casual get-together that will be fun and informative, too!
