Blissful Massage & "Peaceful Massage In A Basket" ~ Bid Today!

The Wildlife Center of Virginia Annual Gala is Saturday, November 5!  It's one of the most important ways that the Center raises money for their wonderful work saving wildlife.

They have a wonderful Auction planned and you can bid too ... even if you can't attend the event.

This year, I am happy to offer a 90-minute Blissful Hot Stone Massage at my Madison Studio at the auction.

AND ... I also have put together a "Peaceful Massage In A Basket" with all sorts of soothing, relaxing treats. 

Nearly 20 items are in my basket ... including, a bottle of my own hand-blended Ayurvedic Balancing massage oil!  Also included is a Relaxation DVD and book, a set of ooh-ahh-wonderful mini massage balls, Chakra Tea (by Stash), lavender water, original "Happy Inspiration" art by Vermont Artist Ginny Sassaman, arnica, calendula lotion, bath salts, tea tree oil, and a bunch of other soothing things. 

Here's a photo of just some of the goodies in my "Peaceful Massage In A Basket".  And, the basket is "Yogi The Cat" approved.  No, Yogi doesn't come with the basket ... but I can add a photo of him if you like!

I'd be happy to arrange shipping to you if you're the lucky bidder on this basket and live out of the area.

But wait ... there's more ...

Nearly 180 terrific items are up for auction at the Wildlife Center Gala this year.  Handmade jewelry, framed original art and gorgeous photographs, sporting and entertainment tickets, vacation outings, and lots of items from local artists and businesses.  Just click here to see all that you can bid on: Wildlife Center Gala Auction.

Bidding online is easy ... just email your bid to by Friday, November 4 at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time). 

Treat yourself ... or get some holiday shopping done.  Most important, your support will help the Wildlife Center of Virginia.  You can help save a wild animal's life!

No Madison Yoga, Monday 10/31

Just a little advance reminder ...

There will be NO yoga class in Madison on Monday, October 31.

There's a schedule conflict in the library that afternoon; in addition, the school parking lot will be teeming with little Trick-or-Treaters! 

Otherwise, the schedule continues on ... and I'll be posting schedules for our upcoming Holiday Yoga Sessions for Madison and Orange in the next couple days.  Don't let the holidays become stressful ... ease yourself, renew yourself, revive yourself with yoga!

A Flow Chart To Live By

The best flow chart.  Ever. 

I wish I knew who to thank for this chart ... it came to me from a friend (and it came to her from a friend ... and so on and so on and on and on and on). 

So, thank you "Anonymous" for reminding us all that worry is depleting and serves no real purpose.  I suppose I'll still worry but perhaps this chart can remind me to worry ... less.

Enjoy your sunshine ... whether it's outside in your day or glowing deep in your heart.
