Yoga for Stress & Anxiety at The Groton School Wellness Center

Yoga for Athletes as scheduled by teams and private groups

This past June 2020, I moved permanently to Westport, MA. Currently, I am teaching virtual yoga classes and private meditation instruction from my home studio. Once our current environment is safer, I will open my home studio up for in-person privates. If you are interested in private sessions for yourself or a small group, I am happy to discuss and put together a plan that will meet your yoga and wellness goals either virtually or in person (when appropriate).

Nurture You

Sunday, December 1 from 2:00-4:00 pm

A workshop with April Ropes and Sammy Brown Goodrich (Yoga Teachers and Reiki Practitioners)
Feeling stressed, tired and overwhelmed can prevent you from making the time for self care. Yoga and other practices have been used for centuries to help people restore balance and find calm in their lives.

In this workshop, you will experience:
• Guided meditation and self-reflection through journaling
• A relaxing restorative yoga practice including hands-on Reiki energetic assists and essential oils, designed to help release tension and “stuck energy” in the body.
Blankets and other props will be used to support the body for complete comfort.
• Discussion about self-care tools and techniques, working toward establishing your plan for self-care going forward. Techniques include self-massage, essential oils, breathwork, and meditation.
