It’s that time of year again, so kick off your boots and get ready for the spring unveil, we will have your yoga toes looking top notch and your spirit shining bright with possibility after one afternoon in our soothing beach abode.  There are no long lines (or far drives) at this pop up spa. We will show you how to create a stress free spa day within your own home (our home),   complete with healthy herbal nibbles and herbaceous scrubs and masks. Grab your friends and get them ready for spring pampering. While the spring sun peaks it’s pretty head just a bit longer each day, it’s easy to remember we’ve neglected our bodies all winter long. It’s time to thaw and relax into the coming season of renewal by giving yourself the attention you deserve!

We start the class off in our special yoga and meditation room (complete with ocean view) with an invigorating 50  minutes of yoga, taught by our local favorite, Angela Sterpka. Followed by 25  minutes of self-compassion practice and compassionate breathing exercises,  all of which will lead us down the path to finding a kinder and friendlier way of relating to ourselves and our bodies.

We then head into the massive kitchen and begin to prepare our spa and culinary delights to which fresh herbs are our muse.  Mix and match your favorite herbal combinations, whether making a peppermint foot scrub or a spring orzo salad—the variations are endless. We will get to sip on herbalicuous sparkling wine drinks  and fresh hors d’voeuvres while learning how to make incredible fresh scrubs and bath soaks for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.

The sundeck (covered)  becomes our foot and hand pampering area where we can relax and soak, scrub and polish our winter feet and hands. There will be some mangoes making their way into the beauty product list as well, because of the Ger-Nis and Crespo Organic Mango connection. Attendees get to leave with plenty of homemade beauty  products so bring some carry home containers. Bring your own polish and paint your nails and toes
