Spring Retreat with Melissa Gardiner & Sara Mertens.

Spring! ‘Tis the season to realign after winter and restore post-winter balance. What better way to help yourself with this than by attending a day of Spring Retreat at Manaia?

As people, we have formed an element of separation from the abundance of our natural world and the rhythm of seasons. This Retreat gives you space to be positively uplifted by the energy of spring around us. There will be time for learning, moving, nourishing, pampering and deep resting. To be in “retreat mode” may allow you greater focus for your potential spring renewal or inspired beginning as you transition into summer.

Sara will be presenting Seasonal Allergies and You. This is an educational opportunity to understand how allergies can be unique to you, and also to those you know who suffer from seasonal allergies. Sara will introduce you to medicinal herb groups for these allergies and highlight three potent anti-allergen herbs to act in rebalancing your whole body. She is also looking forward to sharing with you lifestyle practices that may empower you to support yourself, even if you are not an allergen sufferer.

“When people have allergies, they become agitated and stress levels go up,” says Baxter Bell, MD, a medical acupuncturist and yoga instructor in Oakland, CA. “When that happens, the immune system starts to shut down. Doing something that lets you unwind, like yoga, can help quiet your body’s fight-or-flight response, in turn, quieting allergies.”

Be inspired to infuse the medicinal benefits of plants with the therapeutic benefits of yoga. Please visit our website for more information.
