Blue Zone Inspired Daily Tweaks for Longevity

Saturday, June 10th from 11am-12:30pm

BLUE ZONES are rare longevity hot spots around the world that produce an above average number of HEALTHY, ACTIVE, CENTENARIANS.

Learning to eat healthy can be a daunting task especially with the enormous amount of conflicting information available to us on the World Wide Web. My basic nutritional philosophy is:

Find the true cause or interference, alleviate it and trust the body to “heal itself”

Food is anything that nourishes

A body that is well fed will thrive

You can be rest assured that we will make this journey as “bump free” as possible. Our main priority for you is to have a happier, healthier and younger YOU this time next year.

Dan Buettner is a National Geographic Fellow, who spent over a decade researching the possible cultural differences in each of these Blue Zone areas. He has since written at least 3 books on the subject and started the nationwide initiative called the BLUE ZONE PROJECT. The initiative helps communities, work places, schools and organizations implement longevity principals.

This class will provide EASY LONGEVITY PRINCIPALS to add to your daily routine.
*Start your day with more energy
*Turn your body into a FAT burning machine
*Enjoy your dining out with little to no digestive discomfort
*Sleep more soundly and wake refreshed
*Improve clarity and memory

This class will also provide a tasting of a nutrient dense plant based recipe. Class includes handout with notes and recipes.

Spring Equinox Chakra Balancing Meditation

Sunday, March 19th (4-5:30pm)

This the perfect opportunity as we approach the Spring Equinox, with equal hours of light and dark, to bring our own internal energy into balance. Using YIN YOGA and SOUND THERAPY we will focus on each chakra starting with the root chakra (which represents our feeling of being grounded) and working our way up to the crown chakra (our ability to be fully connected spiritually.)

We gratefully welcome back Sound Therapist Mark Biehl as he anticipates his new journey and move away from the area.
Please Join Mark at Unity Yoga on the eve before our day star passes over the equator on its journey back north for a meditative balancing practice.  The practice will include a series of Yin Yoga poses (passive poses held for time) and Live Tibetan Healing Bowls, Universal Gong and Indigenous Flute to stimulate and connect with the energy and frequency of each chakra of the energetic body.

Yin practice led by Timi McMillin RYT-500

Become a Reiki 1 Practitioner!

March 11, 2017 (11am-4:30pm)

Come learn the art of Reiki with Meditation Expert and Reiki Master, Riv Dunn!  You will be taught how to use Reiki to self-heal and to heal others.  The class will include Reiki 1 Class instruction, Reiki 1 Practitioner Attunement, a Reiki 1 workbook, a light snack, Reiki water, a Certificate of Reiki 1 Practitioner Completion, and continued support from Reiki Master Teacher, Riv Dunn.

What is Reiki?

(Rei: Higher Power   Ki: Life Force Energy)

Reiki is the channeling of energy in order to initiate or energize our body’s natural healing abilities. This technique is used to alleviate stress, depression, anxiety, and helps to heal physical ailments as well. This healing modality enhances additional Western or Eastern methods during a period of physical or emotional recovery, i.e. it can be used in combination with medicine or therapy, meditation, acupuncture, etc. Reiki is a spiritual process, but it is not a religion. People of any belief system can benefit from the healing process that Reiki provides. This holistic approach is a self-improvement method that harnesses your life force energy in order to heal and stabilize your mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual states.


The Reiki 1 Practitioner Course covers the following lessons:

  • The history of Reiki
  • An introduction to our energy system
  • An overview of the Chakra system
  • Instruction on Reiki hand placements
  • How to use Reiki to self-heal
  • How to use Reiki to heal others
  • Adding Reiki energy to food and water
  • Reiki for pets

This course also includes the attunement ceremony, which will allow you to harness Reiki energy for the purpose of healing yourself and others.

If you have not experienced Reiki with Riv yet (and would like to before this class), she is offering a 30 minute Reiki session for $20 to anyone who is interested in taking the course.  Riv is available at Unity Yoga and Wellness on Mondays and Fridays for this offer.

If you have any questions, please contact Riv at Rivdunn76@gmail.com or at 618.520.6825
