What shape waits in the seed of you to grow and spread its branches against a future sky?
Do you long to step out of the pressures of daily life and connect with your authentic self?
Would you like guidance and support to clarify and nurture your deepest visions and intentions?
Do you enjoy yoga, movement, creativity and nature?
Give yourself the gift of a rejuvenating day to connect with what is emerging within you!
Take a few moments to IMAGINE YOURSELF...
Unwinding, relaxing and feeling nurtured in a comfortable place away from home.
Experiencing your aliveness, creativity and purpose.
Feeling peace and inspiration from being held lovingly in nature.
Enjoying gentle, supportive connections with other women who understand you.
What we’ll do together:
We will begin by coming into our bodies with gentle yoga stretches, breathing practices and nurturing movement. Guided visualization will call forth our dreams, symbols and nature allies to help on our journey. To uncover the gifts in our fertile stillness, we will journal, draw and explore Authentic Movement. After a nourishing lunch, we’ll go outdoors to the natural world to receive its wisdom and resourcing. For integration of our inner work, we’ll create a personal mandala to bring back to our daily lives. We will end with a ceremony to bless each other’s path.
IMAGINE walking into the rest of your year with:
Simple, powerful tools to continue self-nurturance and connection to your authentic self
Clarity for your visions and intentions for the new year
A clearer internal path enriched with your personal images and embodied experiences
A personal mandala collage to give you daily inspiration

"Ariana's workshops and exercises have not only helped me connect with myself and my purpose, but given me tools to put what I've gained to use out in the world.I Iove working with Ariana! She brings a wealth of experience, intuition, and gentleness into all the workshops and classes I have participated in with her. I often feel frazzled and disconnected but whenever I have attended one of Ariana's workshops, I become grounded, embodied, and more connected with myself, others, and the planet. It feels like a tune-up for my body and soul; I leave feeling more in balance and in harmony. "
J. Wanlass, MA Psychospiritual Life Coach & Group Facilitator
"My work with Ariana is a true blessing as her guided techniques and movement exercises are teaching me how to connect and listen to my body. This connection has made a powerful shift in my daily life as I am now in tune with what creates peace, restoration and relaxation in my body. Through these changes I am finding more joy, love and strength in each moment..."
J. Borhan, Holistic Health graduate student
"Ariana’s nature outings are a treat! The beauty of nature, gentle movement, sweet bonding with a group, closeness to the spirit – that’s a combination you can’t beat. If you’re anything like me, once you’ve experienced an Ariana outing, you’ll never want to miss one.”
