Don and I are both over the moon thrilled at the turnout we had at our first ever Lavender Festival & Open House. It was amazing. Despite the scorching heat the crowd was estimated at over 600 people!!! Thank you so much to all of our vendors, staff, volunteers and visitors. It was a lot of work but so worth it! We're already planning for next year! 

Thank you all so much!

Solstice Yoga Retreat - June 23rd 9am - 3pm

Enjoy a day of yoga, meditation and journaling with Amanda. Bring a sack lunch. Becky will be sharing info on making herbal teas and will also read your tea leaves. It will be a wonderful day! 

Located on the glorious Schooner Farms, we will honor this seasonal celebration with a morning of All-Levels Yoga. When I say All-Levels, I mean it; ANYONE can join this practice and feel the benefits of yoga. We will move our bodies and observe how joy spreads like sunshine! After a short break, we'll have a lovely tea talk and tasting with the knowledgable and gracious Becky Schooner. During lunch break, there will journaling or you can choose to tour the lavender labyrinth. We'll close the day with a delicious Restorative Yoga practice and meditation.

A day devoted to yourself provides so much inner peace and clarity. It's a reset button and a way to begin summer with a lighter mind and spirit. I warmly invite you to join us for this day of self care and self love. In a season busy with parties, travel, concerts, festivals, graduations, and more, what better way to create a cocoon filled with "me time"? That, my love, is the greatest gift of yoga--it's a path to you, the bestest, loveliest, more awesome you. This is my favorite yoga event of the year. Please be sure to reserve your spot today because they fill quickly and space is limited.

Strawberries will be ready soon. We will update here and on Facebook when berries are available.  This heat might speed the season along.

I think this season I will be teaching more and more classes at The 577 Foundation in Perrysburg and the farm will offer more "event" centric opportunities. Stay tuned - we are still working it out.
