Yoga/Raw Foods/Edible Landscaping Retreat

IMG_0286Nurture your body, mind, and spirit in this weekend retreat. You will learn the vast benefits of several modalities to assist you in opening yourself to more vitality: a raw, organic, vegan diet, Shibashi qi gong exercise, gentle or more intense yoga, aromatherapy, centering prayer, therapeutic touch, and even edible landscaping. You will assist in the preparation of and enjoy delicious, simple raw, organic, vegan meals. 

Suzy Edmonson, LOT, RMT, C-AK, certified Live Food and Lifestyle Practitioner (left), will be your guide for raw, vegan nutrition, gentle yoga, and relaxation methods. Suzy has been an occupational therapist for over 30 years, and has been studying and practicing complementary methods for over 20 years.  The methods incorporated in this weekend were instrumental not only professionally, but also personally, assisting Suzy in recovering from an autoimmune illness similar to rheumatoid arthritis, and it is the diet she follows as a cancer survivor. The diet is helpful in bringing vitality to your life and yoga practice, and it can greatly assist in managing diabetes, heart disease, and other medical conditions.
