Peaceful Hands Holiday Open House & Yoga Class ~ Benefiting The Wildlife Center of Virginia Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017

On SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2017 join me for a special morning Yoga class and Holiday Open House at Peaceful Hands Yoga in Orange, Virginia …

Benefiting
THE WILDLIFE CENTER OF VIRGINIA!

All-Levels Yoga Class ~ 9:30 a.m.

at Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio in Orange, Virginia

Open House follows ~ 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

(If you’re not up to Yoga, just come to the Open House, simple as that!)

Your “cost”? 1) Make a cash/check donation to the Wildlife Center of Virginia or, 2) Bring a bag filled with needed supplies for the Center. Please choose items from this list:

Paper Towels w Tissues (no lotion) w Glad/Hefty Trash Bags (30 gallon & yard sized) w Ziplock Bags w Safety Glasses/Goggles w Mixed Nuts (unsalted, raw, no peanuts) w Canned & Dry Dog or Cat Food (any size, any brand) w  Tuna Fish in cans w Basic office supplies: 20 lb. white paper, pens, padded mailing envelopes, dry erase markers.

The Wildlife Center of Virginia depends entirely on the generosity of individuals like us to support their life-saving work. They have cared for more than 2,600 wild animals this year … and new patients come in every single day.

They all need our help ~ Please be generous!

Your kind help means these animals receive care … and, when they’re ready, they can be released back to their wild homes, just like this Great Horned Owlet released in Orange last month:

 

Even if you can’t make it to class … stop by anyway!

HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE
11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 

Enjoy hot apple cider and deeee-licious sweet and savory treats. (The Peaceful Hands Test Kitchen is up and running … ) And, because I have anticipated your next question — YES! Dr. Beier’s Cheesecake will be there, too!

Enter to win a PEACEFUL HANDS HOLIDAY BASKET, filled with some of my favorite things and a few other giveaway surprises, too!

Visit with The Wildlife Center’s Executive Vice President Randy Huwa and other Wildlife Center staff who will be there to thank you for your support and to tell you about the wild patients you have helped this year — from bear cubs to hummingbirds.

Take A Pic with a wild critter, because they’re coming to the Open House, too! Maybe a raptor, maybe a possum, maybe a turtle, maybe an owl. I can’t tell you which Wildlife Center “Wild Ambassadors” will be there, but I can tell you that they are looking forward to seeing you!

Bring a friend. You don’t have to do Yoga to come by. And, please let others know about this Open House — it’s a great way to introduce new folks to our Yoga studio and to the work of the Wildlife Center.

I hope you’ll stop by. (I can’t eat all these cookies by myself, you know … plus, I want to see you!)  

If you can’t make it, you can still help the animals — just drop off your gift at my massage or Yoga studio.

Here are just a couple of things the Peaceful Hands family has done to help support The Wildlife Center and its patients this year.

You gathered clover, garden greens, and acorns through our “Team Bunny” program, provided lots of brown paper bags for the daily feeding of the bear cubs, and saved an orphaned squirrel in our parking lot before the 4:30 class this summer. (That squirrel, by the way, made it through a-ok and just last week was released in Madison County at the Beier’s farm.)

My shopping space is tiny, but I’ve filled it with lots of things that I love and I think you will, too.  And, remember … on Saturday you’ll get a special gift with any purchase! (Cash/Check only on purchases.)

There will be plenty of treats and hot cider.  Special thanks to Dr. Beier who has made one of his amazing cheesecakes for us and Rod Sedwick who’s done some baking, too.  Come try one or two or three things!

And, live music! Mark Ward, whom many of you know from the 4:30 Yoga class, will have his guitar with him on Saturday and he’s offered to fill our Open House with music. (Thank you, Mark!)

Randy will be there and will be delighted to tell you about the work of the Wildlife Center of Virginia … how your gifts make a difference … and to tell you about the many patients that they treat (so be sure to ask about the beaver and the bear cubs and the grebes!).

I hope you’ll stop by – this is also my way of saying “thank you” for all the kindness and support you’ve given me through the year.  And, bring a friend – the nicest way to introduce someone to Yoga is to show them our studio and what a nice “family” the Peaceful Hands community is!

Holiday Schedule At Peaceful Hands Yoga

Science shows that meditation can improve memory and cognitive function.

So, if you have already forgotten that there’s no Yoga at Peaceful Hands Thanksgiving week, I’ve got great memory-building news for you …

We have the first of our three Holiday Meditations this Sunday!

I know the holidays are busy times for many of us … but don’t forget, Yoga and meditation can improve our brains, bolster our immune system, and help us greet the holidays with a calm and happy heart.

So … join us at Meditation … remember to come back to Yoga class on November 30 … please, please, please don’t forget to help the Wildlife Center of Virginia by coming to our Saturday Yoga class on December 12 and Open House … and make your plans for Yoga on New Years Eve and New Years Day.

I hope you’ll join us during the holidays!
