9-10am Yoga with Lori Fletcher

Instructor: Lori Fletcher 

Yoga is a journey within… a discovery of the space where stillness abides. Through movement and breath and meditation we create an openness, an allowance, to what is.

Lori's Bio:
I practice and teach Hatha Yoga. I strive to find balance of mind, body and soul within each class through yoga poses or asanas, breath work or pranayama, chanting or mantra, symbolic gestures or mudras and meditation. I also incorporate Qigong and sound vibration. Yoga inspires me to live more mindfully and it is from this place that I teach.

I am a registered Yoga teacher and a member of the Yoga Alliance since 2017. I have been practicing yoga for more than 30 years. I received my 200 hour certification from Angie Follensbee-Hall of Jai Studios in Weathersfield, Vermont. I taught most recently at the Centro de Bellas Atres in Vieques, Puerto Rico donating my time to help those recovering from hurricane Maria. This will be my first time teaching in a Yurt and I am Excited!!!

Namaste,

2-4pm Vision Boards with Sara Lowe Bouchard 

Creating a vision board is one of the most powerful ways to manifest the life and emotions you want to create in your world. When you take the time to internally visualize what you want to manifest and then create an external representation of that which you will manifest it provides you with an excellent tool to support manifestation. Clarifying goals and dreams and supplying an energy that creates momentum towards the future you will have. 
Join me in an afternoon of visualizing and creating a vision board to hang in your home. I will share the vision board I made 7 years ago that still hangs on my wall and which has helped every single image I chose to be a reality in my current life.  

4-6pm Mother Drum with Julie Corey

Community Song Circle — A Monthly Gathering of Musical Souls

Bring your songs and tunes to share in this musical circle!
All voices and instruments welcome.
Share original music or music composed by others that’s been inspiring you. Each month, we will gather to share and listen deeply. When the mood strikes, singing/playing together might
arise as well. This is simply a place for all musical spirits to join and feel immersed in music each month. Where we go from there is a lovely mystery.


Charity will be offering this as an on-going gathering 1x a month starting in June! ( 1st Sunday of the month)
