Meet Me in the Present

The first event was such a HUGE success we are doing it again!

Join Rhonda Fritzshall of Equine Assisted Healing, Nongae Johnson of Tara Farm and Heather Berg of Soul Garden Yoga for a morning to practice presence. Sometimes we need time outside of our regular routine to remind ourselves that our true self lies within present awareness. Horses are able to live in the now and have an unbelievable ability to reflect our internal experience in a way that allows us to grow and learn about ourselves. Horses relate with people in a very raw and honest manner, completely attuned in the moment. 

Rhonda is a certified Equine professional through the Eagala.* Through combining her longtime passion for horses and background in assisting families on their journey of healing and recovery from addiction, Rhonda has witnessed the magic of healing when horses and humans work together. She has helped over 1200 clients heal through equine therapy. Nongae is a PATH** Certified Equine Specialist who has owned Johnson’s Folly for over 20 years.

The morning will begin with a meditation and yin yoga practice under a canopy lead by Heather. Then, Rhonda and Nongae will guide us through an equine facilitated experience (non-mounted) learning about ourselves so we can move towards inner peace, confidence, and strength. No experience with horses or yoga is required. Wear comfortable yoga attire and closed shoes for equine portion. Bring yoga mat. Water and light snacks provided. Minimum age 14yr. Limited to 12 participants.

What: Meditation, Yoga and Horses

When: Saturday, May 19, 9am-12pm

Where: Tara Farm, 14052 52nd Ave S, Delray Beach, FL 33484

Investment: $50 (pre-payment reserves your spot)

Info: call Rhonda 954-675-5065 or Heather 561-859-9697

Mesmerized in Morocco Retreat

****SOLD OUT*****(email me if interested and I can contact you if a space becomes available)

I am giddy with excitement about this INCREDIBLE retreat I'll be leading in Essaouira, Morocco through Yoga Adventures Worldwide. I had the pleasure of meeting Christina Thomas, the mastermind behind the operation of the most coveted yoga retreats when I was in Costa Rica back in December 2016. We hit it off immediately, and I knew I'd be working with her in the future....and that time is October 13-20, 2018!

Christina writes: "Join us in the breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage Site city of Essaouira, a relaxed fishing town on the coast of Morocco. (For  television enthusiasts, the recent series Game of Thrones was filmed here.)  Of late there have been many amazing press pieces on this lovely part of Morocco.  The NY Times article and NatGeo Travel just named Essaouria the fastest growing destination in Morocco.  But don’t take their word for it, takes ours!  We have been going to Morocco for the past 5 years and to Essaouria for the last four.  It is the perfect location for a yoga retreat in Morocco as it offers a more relaxed medina and some of the best shopping in the country!"

This retreat will feature  daily morning ALL-LEVELS vinyasa flow yoga and evening yin/restorative or workshops to raise your spirits and your hearts. Our adventures will take us to the streets shopping the souks of the Medina, a pampering spa day with Moroccan beauty treatments, a welcome henna celebration complete with classic mint tea, traditional tagine cooking class, camel rides on the beach, belly dancing, and a day trip to explore Marrakech, the Red City.

Guest Yoga Teacher at Rancho La Puerta

I am honored to teach what I love, yoga and meditation at this breathtaking fitness resort and spa, Rancho La Puerta.

Here's one of the many outstanding reviews of this oasis:

I have been visiting "the ranch" since the 80s and watched it evolve, grow, but never waiver from its original core. The fundamentals stay the same- extremely high standards and their motto "siempre major"- always better. Whether alone, as a couple, with family and / or friends you will enjoy, learn, relax and be glad you got to experience this special place. The grounds are stunning. The hikes are amazing and available for all levels. The classes feature top rate instructors who will teach you things to bring home and do in every day life. The food is delicious, filling, fresh and even my vegan husband could eat a wide variety happily. The spa services are fantastic. Accommodations are beautiful and the evening programs interesting. Really there is nothing but high praise.

A Sanctuary of Mindful Femininity

When Women Come Together With Intention

There is an inherent gift in true friendship and a real deep connection between women. This is what we are seeking when we spend this time together on a Sunday afternoon.

You will find that true spiritual work does not require being away on a five day retreat. It does not take place only when you are stepping away from the routine of your life.

The real work happens every moment of every day and is expressed in how you are with yourself and how you are with others.

Come play with us. Come laugh and cry with us. You will be heard. You will be seen. You will be loved.

Yoga For Back Health
Mar

2:30 PM14:30

Yoga For Back Health

A strong healthy back is a key component to staying active and being able to move freely and fluidly throughout your life. Yoga is a gentle yet powerfully effective practice that can reduce spinal compression symptoms, improve posture, boost flexibility and increase overall strength. Depending on how the practice is approached, yoga can be either helpful or aggravating. In this hands-on workshop, Lisa Ponczek (RYT500)  and I are working together to provide a supportive practice that will stretch and strengthen the back. A safe practice can help prevent future injury as well as assist the healing process and improve limitations from existing issues.

What to expect:

*Gentle, floor-based and standing postures to stabilize and strengthen the spine
*Assistance in customizing the postures to target your needs to avoid injury
*Guidance in postures that decompress the spine and supporting structures to release tension Poses to help facilitate core strength and range of motion

This workshop is for anyone interested in helping to alleviate back pain or who is recovering from injury which they have been given permission by their doctor to engage in a gentle yoga practice. This workshop will also be beneficial for yoga teachers who want to learn to safely and effectively help their students with back issues.

When: Sunday March 4, 2018, 2:30-5:00pm
Investment: $48
Where: Holistic Center of Boca Raton - 6971 N Federal Hwy, Suite 205 Space is limited, preregistration required

Join me as I guide you in a 2 hour Yin Yoga experience. This is an invitation to pause and turn inwards: slow down to find a deep sense of vibrant stillness. Taking time to TRULY listen and feel connected is one of the best self-care practices you can give yourself.

I am thrilled and honored to have Jodi Carey with me this month. She has always been drawn to the mystic and spirituality since early childhood. In 2001 during her career as a performing artist, she delved deeper into holistic healing becoming certified in Integral hatha yoga, energy work, and nutritional counseling. She was led to a clinical setting where she helped implement a yoga program for the Trauma Center of Boston in research on Yoga and PTSD. Through this experience, her approach to the practice has become more intuitive. She continues to thrive in her development from her personal love of movement arts, shamanic healing, and practices steeped in subtle body approaches.  Jodi currently has a private practice in Miami at 1111Vibe where she leads healing sound baths, intuitive counseling and yoga.

SUP Meditation with What's SUP and Heather Berg

Have you wanted to start a meditation practice but don't know how? Do you already have a meditation practice but want to be out in nature? Why not try it on a Stand Up Paddleboard?

Our lives can be hectic. It is essential to reconnect to our senses and increase self-awareness. We can do this through meditation. Modern science is documenting the positive effects of meditation as it relates to both physical and mental health. I personally find it easier to fall into a relaxed, meditative state when the only ambient noise is nature.

SUPing on calm waters is definitely meditative in itself. Whether standing or sitting, as I gently pull the paddle through the water, moving my arms from one side to the other, I feel at ease. No text messages or emails to attend to.

SUP Yoga, which I LOVE, requires balance and can be physically challenging. Shavasana, corpse pose at the end is truly appreciated, and it's where we truly reap the benefits!

SUP meditation combines the best of both: being out in nature on the water AND the incredible healing benefits of meditation!!

We will paddle out where we will anchor down in a quiet cove-like setting. I will guide you through simple breathing techniques, a guided meditation and then silence.

It's my way of keeping track of myself. I have committed to a balanced daily routine that nourishes my body, mind and spirit. Some days I only have 10 minutes and other days I have an hour or more. Some days I only practice a few restorative/yin poses; or I put on great music and flow until my heart is pumping; other days the best I can do is sit (or lay down!) to meditate. Join me for this 2 hour workshop where I will provide you with various daily home practices so you feel and stay grounded and connected. You'll leave with resources and inspiration! This is perfect for the new, seasoned, teacher, or student of yoga.

Yin Yoga: An Invitation to Pause and Turn Inwards

If you are looking for an opportunity to slow down, breathe, find space within and discover something new about yourself, this special class is for you!

I am thrilled to offer a 2 hour Yin Yoga class on Saturday, February 25th at Michael’s Body Scenes from 2-4pm. You will be guided to hold poses for 3-5 minutes while your senses will be subtly soothed, experiencing massage, hands-on assists, aromatherapy, blissful music and the invitation of turning inwards. Yin yoga is designed to elongate the connective tissues of the body (ligaments, tendon and fascia) resulting in a greater sense of space within. Each asana (pose) will stimulate meridian lines (pathways in the body where energy flows) which connect to vital organs helping to restore balance. Using deep, focused breathing you will connect and drop further into your body helping to release and let go of stress and tension. We will then finish off with a meditation. This Yin Yoga practice will reset your nervous system and guide you to your calm, alert, refreshed and revitalized self. Everyone is welcome. 

$20/members; $25/non-members

Yin Yoga with Live Music at Michael's Body Scenes, Boca Raton

Treat yourself to a 2 hour yin yoga practice lead by Heather Berg with live music performed by Doug Tessler and Simm Gottesman and stay to sample some new menu items from Farmer's Table

Yin Yoga works on a very deep level to awaken the connective tissue (fascia) of your body. The key to the Yin Yoga experience is 3 fold: take the shape of the pose, find stillness and surrender, and hold the pose for 3 to 5 minutes. This less dynamic practice promotes stress relief and a deeper state of meditation and relaxation. No yoga experience needed; just an open, willing attitude to surrender, slow down and come back into balance.

Stay for bit afterwards to sample some of Farmer's Table's new menu items!

$20/members, $25/non-members

Sunset SUP Yoga with What's SUP and Heather Berg

Launching from Pioneer Park, Deerfield Beach, FL, we will paddle out to a calm bay where we will anchor our boards. I will guide a slow-paced Vinyasa yoga sequence where the board makes a great yoga mat and the extra balance required by being on the water intensifies the yoga poses.  As we lay in shavasana/corpse pose, the sun will begin to set. Lets watch the colors in the sky change as float on the water together. $25/rent a board; $15/bring your own board. Text/call 561-859-9697
