Mala & Mimosas


Celebrate Life! Welcome the Sun!

Join us at the BEAUTIFUL Casade Springd Nature Preserve for a morning of Yoga, meditation, adult refreshments and mature sisterhood.

We'll begin the morning with a brief, energizing hike to the rocky shoals overlooking the gorgeous Creek. We'll set our intention for the day, then begin our Yoga Mala practice.

Our practice will end with a relaxing guided meditation, then we'll enjoy freshly made mimosas, healthy, invigorating snacks and warm fellowship with like-minded sisters.

Intention: Self Love and Sisterhood.
