Townsend TN upcoming events: Health & Wellness Weekend

What shape waits in the seed of you to grow and spread its branches against a future sky? —David Whyte

Join Allison Foster for a weekend of renewal, self-discovery and rest. We will honor the journey of our lives with nourishing yoga, delicious food, beautiful accommodations, and the Great Smoky Mountains. We will also provide options for massage, hiking, biking, floating down the Little River, touring the Tuckaleechee Caverns, or just relaxing in a hammock with a good book. The best part is that EVERYTHING is completely optional. This is your time!

Weekend Highlights:
Unwind from the pace of daily life while connecting with yourself, your journey, and your purpose. Get to know other women while doing inspirational yoga and meditation, remembering that we all have a story. There will be free time for hiking, biking, floating, touring, resting, and massage. Join us Saturday night for a wine reception and dinner.
