Mindfulness for teens

Young folks today are desperately seeking a sense of CALM in their lives.  This brand-new program teaches teenagers practical skills to combat anxiety, take time for themselves, develop a strong sense of self-esteem, and find some peace in their somewhat chaotic lives.

This 4-week program offers youth a chance to unwind, to explore and appreciate their individually unique qualities, and to develop a personal de-stress practice. Youth will participate in activities that will help them in their daily life. Your child will enjoy benefits of yoga, such as improved concentration, attention and focus for academics, sports, extra-curricular activities and in their relationships with others.  Your child will enjoy benefits of yoga, such as improved concentration, attention and focus for academics, sports, extra-curricular activities and in their relationships with others.

Modern Sacred Circle

Time to circle up! Modern Sacred Circle is open to all women who are looking to connect with others or forge a deeper connection within themselves, get something off their chests, or simply try something new.  There's not much you need to know beforehand, and you don't need to prepare. Simply show up and be willing to share. Each circle event has a theme, which is announced ahead of time. The theme of this first circle will be CONNECTION.

This isn't a religious practice, a yoga practice, a meditation, or a place to gather and gripe about what isn't going right in our lives. This a curated experience, mindfully timed exactly to an hour, to help you connect — in whatever way that takes on meaning to you. You will come away feeling grounded, confident, strong, and probably friendlier. What better way to start a new week? 

  • Circle theme: CONNECTION
  • Date: Sunday, September 9th
  • 4:00 - 5:00 pm
  • Location: Whitney's in-home yoga & wellness studio (directions will be emailed to you upon registration)
  • Cost: By donation only. Give whatever your heart desires (this doesn't have to be a monetary donation, btw; get creative!)

Email Whitney to save your spot in the circle!
