Rise Well-being Center in Reston is a new concept for community around truly holistic lifestyles. They are offering a special workshop that includes playful movement with powerful healing components from 2 to 4 p.m. on November 24—for those that stay in town for the Thanksgiving holiday. The workshop, titled Meet Yourself with Gratitude, will be led by Karen King, a passionate dance/fitness facilitator, as well as a coach, public speaker, reiki healer, writer, novice drummer, spoken word poet and mother of two. King has certifications in Eating Psychology and is completing an intensive training in Empowerment Coaching. Explore the parts of you that quietly and subtly keep you stuck in old patterns and learn tools to meet them with acceptance. Make peace with those darker parts and move graciously through challenges with a new outlook. This workshop provides the perfect movement and reflection following a family feast.
Rise Well-Being Center is a haven from the intensity of D.C. They have movement classes which amplify mind/body/spirit awareness—most suitable for absolute beginner. Several movement classes include live sound healing. This combination is remarkable. Meditation classes weave into each day and they offer several forms. Beginners are supported and encouraged because we know how hard it is to stay with this highly beneficial practice! Their Wellness classes teach “energy anatomy” and many other topics that help to integrate holistic intelligence into everyday life.
Cost: $50 or $40 for Rise Members. Location: 11130 Sunrise Valley Dr., Ste. 150, Reston, Virginia. Visit their website to learn more about the event and to see their class schedule and events, workshops, trainings, concerts and more at RiseWellBeing.Center/Special-Events.
