"Sip & Shavasana"
An afternoon retreat for Primary Caregivers of Seniors
Atria Carmichael Oaks
October 29, 2017
Time: 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Sip & Shavasana - An afternoon retreat for Primary Caregivers of Seniors featuring Wine, Yoga, Chair Massages, Facials, Scrumptious Hors d'oeuvres, and bonding with primary caregivers just like YOU.
Get ready for a fantastic event that is all about loving and taking care of yourself. As primary caregivers of seniors there is often little time for much other than that duty, let alone getting in some good old fashion pampering and relaxation. On this day, we will be celebrating all you have done to care for a loved-one by focusing on making you feel fantastic inside and out.
By “Sip” we mean enjoy a nice glass of wine, beer, iced tea, or something else cool and refreshing beverage.
By “Shavasana” we mean relax every bone in your body and focus on you.
(Shavasana is normally done at the end of a yoga practice in which practitioners lie flat on their backs with the heels spread as wide as the yoga mat and the arms at the sides of the body, palms facing upward. This is the time when they completely relax all aspects of the body physically and mentally.)
So on this day, together we will “Sip & Shavasana” with activities sure to rejuvenate your soul.
Instructions for Attendees:
1. Come dressed in comfortable clothing you are able to move around in.
2. Bring a yoga mat if you have one (Be sure to check with your physician before attempting any form of fitness routine, even though this will be a very beginning and gentle session)
3. Bring 2 questions you wish to discuss with the group.
4. Pull around to the rear of the building and check in with the valet parking attendant.
