Cacoa & Yoga

w/ Giulia Conte, RYT
When: April 21st, 2018 at Unplug & Be Mindful Yoga in Marshfield
$40pp; $35pp when you bring a friend

Theobroma Cacao ~ familiar to many of us as chocolate, the mouthwatering sweet treat that is pressed & neatly formed into uniform rectangles, often wrapped up in gilded foil. But what is the story of this well-celebrated, well-known and yet mysterious plant?

Much like its distinguished flavors, Cacao holds notes of both bitterness and sweetness in its rich history. Originating in ancient Aztec culture, the medicine was later brought to Europe on its way to becoming a global commodity.

Melt into exploration of Cacao’s sweet saga with Giulia Conte (YA 200H Certified Instructor).

In this workshop we will:

  • Begin with a Ceremonial Cacao Circle, interwoven with informative narration of the history and healing benefits of raw cacao.
  • Be guided through a soothing, heart-centered yoga asana flow, facilitated by the energetic presence of this ancient medicine.
  • Participants will receive take-home literature that reiterates some of the note-worthy benefits and facts of the cacao plant.

*In participating in this workshop, you are supporting Guatemalan family farms, who earn their living from independently growing and selling their organically cultivated cacao. For more information on the family, please ask Giulia as she is happy to spread their story.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. During Reiki sessions, one feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation, and feelings of peace, security, and well-being.
