Restorative Yoga +Acupuncture

Thursday, May 10th    6:00 – 7:30 pm

Marilyn leads a restorative class that ends with a fully supported, extended savasana.  In this fully relaxed state, your body’s ability to repair is at its peak, making savasana a great time to receive acupuncture. Aimee will come around to place a few needles to address your specific health issues while you blissfully rest on your yoga mat.

Feel the combined healing power of these two modalities together.

No experience necessary, perfect for beginners or seasoned yogis. Wear comfortable clothing.  Yoga mats are provided but feel free to bring your own. $30.00. Space is limited.  Register online 

Community Acupuncture with Sounds of a Tibetan Healing Bowl

Friday, May 18th or Friday, June 1st  6:30 – 7:30

Aimee will offer community acupuncture with the healing sounds of a Tibetan singing bowl. These two sessions are specifically for those going through difficult life transitions – a life changing diagnosis, a loved one’s passing, an end of a significant relationship, parenting a struggling child, caretaking an ailing parent, and other life challenges. During these times, our world can fill with grief, loss, fear, disappointment, and anger; emotions we must face and courageously work through. Come to rest, to heal for one hour. Find peace in stillness. Gain strength to continue on with your journey.

As with all  community acupuncture sessions, it is on a sliding fee scale.  This means you pay what you’re able, suggested $30-$50.  Space is very limited. Registeration will open soon.  Pre-registration will be required.
