Wellness in the Wilderness

Sun. September 24, 2023 @ 8:30 am 3:30 pm

Join us for a day of working on your personal wellness. The day will begin with a meet and greet, intention setting and journaling. Next is a yoga session before lunch. Participate in a sound bath and guided meditation to conclude the day. Please bring your own yoga mat, blanket and a pillow/bolster. Yoga block is optional. Limited spots available. Lunch included.

About our facilitator and leading guided meditation, journaling and intention setting:
Lia Pappas, a dedicated advocate of self-care, has evolved her journey to embrace unconventional approaches, including Hypnotherapy, Human Design, and energy work. With an unwavering commitment to personal growth, she finds joy in both refining her own practice and helping others navigate their own paths with Unordinary Selfcare.

Leading the Sound Bath:
April Casey Reaska has been on the spiritual and healing path since childhood. She is constantly finding ways to deepen her practice and teachings of Reiki, Intuitive Art Therapy, Energy Medicine and Sound Healing through classes, extensive reading, inspiration from her mentors and nature. 

Leading Yoga:
Dani Claggett has been a student of the yoga practice for over 11 years and an instructor for the last 3 years. Her yoga practice has been in a constant in her life that allows her to disconnect to reconnect. Much of the yoga practice is about healing, and as Dani always says, you can’t heal what you don’t let yourself feel.  Her teaching philosophy is to bring to others what yoga brought to her: deeper connection to self. While she weaves many styles of yoga into her practice, Dani specializes in restorative classes that are accessible to students of all levels. In her classes, you can expect to practice breathwork techniques, slow movement and longer holds that promote deeper healing in the body, and using props for support while letting gravity do the work. Dani also incorporates her all-natural essential oil blends into her classes, especially for a relaxing savasana.
