September 13th from 1-3pm

We work very hard in our lives, and while we may sleep, we rarely take

time to rest. Restorative yoga poses help us learn to relax and rest deeply

and completely.

During deep relaxation, all the organ systems of the body are beneted,

and a few of the measurable results of deep relaxation are the reduction

of blood pressure, serum triglycerides and blood sugar levels in the blood,

the increase of the "good cholesterol" levels, as well as improvement in

digestion, fertility, elimination, the reduction of muscle tension, insomnia

and generalized fatigue.

Ruthann will let you dive into deep relaxation, combining yoga props, massage,

along with exploring Doterra Essential oils: Balance, Lavender, Peppermint,

Melaleuca, Wild Orange, Aroma Touch, Deep Blue, & On Guard.

This workshop will leave you feeling open, renewed & refreshed.

 

Space is limited so reserve your spot today!

Don't get hung up on what your body looks like...

Don’t get hung up on what your body looks like. Focus on what your body can do!

 

As I learn to surrender on the mat, I learn to surrender to the present moment. This is the practice. It’s accessible to you, to everyone, right here, right now – but you have to do the work. No one is going to do it for you. Don’t hold back.

Today is a beautiful day for a new beginning.

 

Namaste'  Ruthann

I know this SNOW has got your back down from scooping!  Brad & I were talking this evening about how much snow he has scooped this year.  I sugested he call Dr. Riley & then I get this email from the Dr.!

So much for springtime.
If you were shoveling snow I hope you bent your knees and took smaller shovel fulls of the wet heavy stuff.  Remember to stretch out this evening if you have been shoveling or just playing in the snow.
If you have been out and about hopefully it was a safe journey for you.

I just wanted to remind everyone that I have started to expand the hours to Monday evening, Tuesday evening, Wednesday afternoon, Thursday evening and Saturday morning.
To make an appointment pleas call 816-516-2864.
