Mid-Winter Mini-Retreat for Women
including Shake Your Soul® Dance

Sunday, January 27, 1 - 4PM

Winter is a season of rest, darkness and quietude. It is the perfect time to tend to our spirit and nourish our creativity. Guided by Janine Grillo Marra, we will explore the potentiality that naturally exists at this time of year, as well as the greater potentiality that is always within us. In a warm, nurturing environment we will practice together:

  • simple, guided meditation
  • super fun and easy-to-follow Shake Your Soul® Dance (movement class focused on creativity, fun and great music)
  • gentle and relaxing movement
  • restful floor yoga 
  • mini Reiki (energy healing) treatment

All are welcome - no prior experience necessary. Yoga equipment is available, but you are welcome to bring your own favorite items.
To maintain an intimate setting, space is limited for this retreat, so register soon.

Cost: $45. Register HERE.
