It’s hard to find time for self care.
Between work, home, school events for the kids, and after school events for the kids, our to-do lists are far too packed to make ourselves a priority.
We find ourselves pushing that yoga class and that acupuncture appointment further and further down the list, thinking that once all the proper boxes are checked we’ll finally be able to take time for ourselves.
Nicole and I see you. We know you. We see and know you because we are you. We know what it’s like to need to make time for ourselves so that we can show up in a better way for the people that depend on us.
So, we put our heads together and crafted the ultimate night of self care. One hour of yin yoga followed by a short community acupuncture session to fill your cup, align you with the cycles of the world around you, and finally check the most important box on your to-do list: you.
Each class has the following format:
CLEANSE // We cleanse with sage to clear blocks and allow the yoga practice and acupuncture the space to work
YIN YOGA // Nicole leads a one-hour gentle yoga practice appropriate for complete beginners to move and restore tired bodies
ACUPUNCTURE // Jessica gives a short seasonally appropriate treatment designed to deepen the healing your yoga practice started and align you with the rhythms of the world around you
MINDFUL SNACK & TEA // Nicole ends the class by grounding with a mindful eating meditation, some tea, and room for discussion about the day’s practice
All of this for only $30.
Are you ready to take some time for self care?

I’ve never had acupuncture before. What is “community acupuncture”?
