Self Care Workshops
Wellness Workshops and Self Care Classes
Has it been a long year for you?
Exhausted from the stress of the season?
I know sometimes we can get to the end of December and feel like all we want is to push the re-set button.
...what I also know is that -- the best way to feel truly renewed is to give yourself time and space to rest and to reflect.
So as this year comes to a close I invite you to give yourself the gift of some nourishing deep self care
Join me for a special free wellness workshop on Thursday evening, December 29th.
We'll create space together for your body, mind and spirit to slow down and get quiet so that you can:
- acknowledge yourself and all you've experienced over this past year
- notice and soothe the places you've been carrying the stress
- honor the times and different ways you've tapped into courage and resilience
- breathe into a space of self compassion, empowering wisdom, and an invitation for inner renewal
Wear comfortable clothes, bring a journal for writing and a candle if you like.
We'll do a lovely combination of gentle body stretching and qigong movements, self care massage, calming breath meditations and restorative yoga to open our hearts and minds for some reflection journaling.
This opportunity of time and compassionate space to slow down and reflect truly is a powerful gift you can give yourself at the end of a year.
You'll come away with inner wisdom that will inspire you to move forward well into your new year.

A powerful way to think about your vitality is the simple foundation of how you nourish, move and rest your whole human-self.
Let's explore together how you can step into this new season and revitalize your life!

The Power of Your Habits
It's that time of year when we're thinking about changes we want to make in our lives and goals we try setting to do that.
Goals can be important, but have you ever struggled to really get traction with your intentions or to muster up the willpower to keep going?
Aristotle said ‘We are what we repeatedly do.’
Habits, therefore, are where the real power is.
What habits do you have in your life?
Are they supporting or sabotaging you?
Join me in this interactive on-line workshop about how to you can use the game changing practice of habit cultivating to help you actually start living your intentions in your day to day life.
Some takeaways you'll come away with:
- Recognizing the potent difference between habit-power and will-power.
- Experiencing an illuminating check-in about your own current habits
- Discovering your own personal keystone habit and how to leverage it.
- Tips for how to neutralize your kryptonite habits.
New dates will be scheduled soon.

Have you ever wondered how it could actually make a difference in your life?

Body Tune Up Classes
I know how it is...sometimes you find good tools and ideas for self care, BUT showing up for yourself to practice your self care on a regular basis
... that's another story.
It's understandable. Life happens.
Still, I know you want to start feeling and living better in your body.
These classes are a perfect solution.
They'll help you carve out time for regularly tuning in and tuning up your body, mind and spirit.
Each class will be different and customized for the group that day with techniques such as:
- self massage/myofascial rolling
- targeted and full body stretching
- breathing practices
- energy balancing work like qi gong or reflexology
- and even a bit of meditation.
Dates: Our current Body Tune Up Class schedule is on hold.
Self Massage/Myofascial Rolling Workshops
During these times when our normal routines around wellness have been turned upside down, having effective ways to practice self care at home is essential.
In these empowering interactive workshops, certified massage therapist Katrina Piehler will teach you techniques for massaging your own muscles and fascia using specially made pliable rubber Roll Model® therapy balls.
You can sign up for a specific lesson focusing on particular areas of your body or even better sign up for the full 4 session foundation series.
The workshops will be held over Zoom and recorded so you can go back anytime for a review.
Each session in this series offers an empowering experience of how you can:
- relieve the tension and pain in your body
- feel looser and less stiff
- de-stress and calm your overstimulated nerves
- breathe more deeply, improve your digestion and even strengthen your immunity

Transform your Holiday Season from Stress Filled to Meaningful & Enjoyable
The holiday season can often be filled with stress and overwhelm - even in a 'good year'.
With all the ways we've been trying to find a sense of balance and 'new normal' this year, many of us are feeling the stress even more.
Several years ago I created a practice that helped me shift how I experience my holiday season. I used to think of it as a way to manage stress. But then I realized it wasn’t simply about managing...it was an opportunity to actually transform it.
This is something it seems we could use more than ever right now.
So I invite you to join us in our Living from Center Community Facebook group for this free 3 part empowering workshop.
We'll explore ideas for your body, mind and spirit that will help you tap into your own inspiration, focus and grounding.
Reclaim the end of your year by transforming the holiday season into a more ease-filled, meaningful experience you enjoy.
Dates to join us live (times listed are Eastern Standard Time):

Resolutions Re-Set ~ How to Unlock the Follow Through Power of your New Year Intentions
It's true... new year's resolutions have a reputation of fizzling out.
We lose steam on our motivation.
Sometimes we never even get traction in the first place.
There's a reason for that -- actually there's three.
Join me for this FREE interactive workshop where we'll explore three game-changing keys that unlock your follow-through power so you can translate your good intentions into the reality of your actual day to day life.
Let this be the year you shift from shoulds, frustration and disappointment to inspired and confident momentum all year long.
New dates will be scheduled next December and January.
