Module 1 - Weekend Only: Essentials Program for R.E.L. (Rest, Ease, Levity) - DAY TWO

Aired -

  • UZIT’s self-care workshops and community-care programs promote a sense of centering, calm and joy by integrating four supportive modalities: Yoga, Reiki, Essential Oils and Presence

WHOM IS UZIT FOR?  Are there any enrollment requirements?
  • UZIT is for everyone and every day
  • UZIT’s self-care practices and community-care programs are intended to restore, reconnect and rebalance at home, work or in any other setting
  • No enrollment requirements.  No experience is necessary.  UZIT is for anyone
  • UZIT is also for people who are exhausted, anxious, in pain or not feeling as vital and creative as one would like to be

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS from the workshops and mentor sessions?  WHAT WILL I LEARN?
  • You will join a community that offers guidance, support and encouragement
  • Along with others, you will learn more about:
    • the confluence of Yoga, Reiki, Essential Oils and Presence to create your own embodied, daily self-care practice
    • our solution-oriented approach to RELIEF: Rest, Ease, Levity, Integrate, Energize, Focus
  • The mentor sessions are more in-depth and broken into smaller groups for more interactive and personalized attention

  • Currently, the workshops and mentor sessions are online-only, but depending on geographic locations, we hope to offer the same workshops in-person or hybrid later in 2022

  • Marcia Miller, Tracy Griffiths, Sarah Halweil and Gina Cunningham will lead the self-care workshop for Rest, Ease and Levity (R.E.L.)
