Winter Wellness Series

Find a sense of warmth and well-being from within by practicing the concept of coziness during the cold winter months.

A Warm Fire Within: Yoga & Meditation for Adults

Join Jess Matthiae from Peaceful Heart Yoga for a 30 minute adult yoga and meditation session designed to soothe your weary bones. 2020 was quite a year, and now as the cold weather creeps in, we can all benefit from a little coziness. Yoga, meditation and mindfulness are the perfect tools to find that feeling of “hygge” (comfort, coziness) from the inside out. Use these yoga tools to create a comforting, bright, warm fire in yourself to keep the chill off this year.

A Warm Fire Within: Yoga & Meditation for Kids

Join Jess Matthiae from Peaceful Heart Yoga for a 15 minute, fun-filled yoga and mindfulness session for kids! Designed for ages 3 – 8, we will use engaging breathing techniques, creative movements and story to dive inward and stoke our inner fire and practice the concept of coziness.
