IS NYC SUCKING THE LIFE OUT OF YOU?
We get it, we've been there, and we want to help!
ADD MORE LOVE TO YOUR
NYC LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP
Being armpit to face at 8am sucks, so we'll teach you to approach these less-than-lovely moments with a little more love and mindfulness.
IMAGINE LIVING THE LIFE YOU WANT
Instead of planning your perfect escape, why not enjoy the here and now
TAKE 4 HOURS OF YOUR SUNDAY FOR YOURSELF
Join us for a mini retreat where we will provide you with easy techniques to help you feel refreshed and recharged every day. About the price of a massage, but with way longer lasting benefits.
Let us help you stop focusing on that gross garbage water and appreciate more of the good that NYC has to offer. We know that balanced living is hard to come by in this chaotic city and we will help you establish effective de-stressing techniques that easily fit into your life.
(RE)TREAT YOURSELF: NYC MIGHT BE A GOOD FIT IF:
- You never make time for yourself, because your busy putting everything (and everyone) else first
- Your daily commute is the only dose of sunshine you get. (And that doesn't even really count because you usually leave work after the sun has set).
You constantly feel like you need to move but just don't have time for it.
MAYBE IT'S NOT A GOOD FIT IF:
- The idea of self-love makes you roll your eyes.
- You feel the universe is against you.
- You hate feelings.
- You did not mean to click on this website.
THREE SUMMER SESSIONS:
Sunday, May 7, 2017 • Sunday, June 11, 2017 • Sunday, July 9, 2017
Choose one date or attend all 3!
10am-2pm in Central Park • Lunch will be provided
OUR MINI NYC (RE)TREAT YOURSELF WILL INCLUDE:
ENERGIZING MORNING YOGA
Certified yoga teacher Cayla Merrill will lead you through an energizing morning sequence that can be easily incorporated into anyone's jam-packed schedule. Cayla is a strong proponent that yoga is for everyone and any time. Learn simple variations to help bring movement to your desk, commute, or Netflix binge.
PICNIC LUNCH PROVIDED
We will take a break to refuel mindfully while continuing to get to know each other.
MOVING MEDITATION / MINDFULNESS WALK
This half hour will show you what your daily lunch break could look like. Leslie Jay, a licensed mental health counselor, will provide tips to stay mindful as you independently walk through the park. A quick walk outside allows fresh air to reset your frantic mind, and moving your body will increase your blood flow and leave you energized so you feel fresh and focused all day long.
RELAXING AFTERNOON YOGA
Cayla will lead you through a 15 minute grounding yoga practice that is perfect to squeeze in right before bedtime. Sleep is absolutely crucial to balancing a tight schedule and a gentle yoga flow just before bedtime lets us unplug and unwind which allows a deeper more restful sleep.
We know, meditation. That thing where you have to sit down and think about absolutely nothing for hours on end until you reach nirvana. Wrong! In this beginner's meditation, Cayla and Leslie will guide you through a digestible meditation that will dispel your concerns and preconceptions to help you find some peace of mind. It can be done anywhere, anytime and will work wonders on your stress levels.
Another critical part of finding balance and combating the stress of everything that is wrong is reflecting on all of the wonderful things that are going right. There is always a silver lining, even if you have to squint. Cayla and Leslie will share their insights on what a gratitude practice is and how to maintain it.
Retreats will be limited to a maximum of 15 participants. We hope that through the connection and intimacy of these workshops we can provide a community for like-minded individuals. Attend one or all three!
WHY (AWE)SOME AMAZING LIVING?
Cayla and Leslie are both well aware of the struggles and challenges that come from living in New York City, having full time careers, relationships, hobbies, and friends and feeling like their cup was always empty when it was time to give to themselves. Through their own independent therapy and self-help journeys they have found beneficial tools to add to their Sustainable Self-Help Toolkit in an effort to find better balance in their lives. Through the (Awe)some Amazing Living Podcast and Retreats, Cayla and Leslie hope to impart some of their learned wisdom on to you to help you stress less and gain and maintain some peace of mind.
