Step into the “Blossom & Balance” Garden Experience, a day of relaxation, reflection, and artistic inspiration set amidst the tranquil embrace of nature. Prepare yourself for a laid-back experience like no other, where time slows down and worries melt away in the gentle breeze.

As you enter the enchanting outdoor flower garden, you’ll be greeted by the soothing sounds of rustling leaves and the delicate fragrance of blossoms.

Led by newly minted local Yoga Teacher, Deb Lanning, the day begins with an hour of inspired yoga and meditation, inviting participants to unwind, let go of stress, and embrace a sense of inner peace.

Following this rejuvenating session, the day unfolds into a three-hour Plein Air Watercolor Painting Session, where participants are encouraged to unleash their creativity amidst the beauty of the garden. Guided by Deb Lanning guests will receive all necessary art supplies and a brief introductory watercolor lesson, empowering them to express themselves freely on paper.

As colors blend and brushstrokes take shape, the garden becomes a sanctuary for artistic exploration and self-expression.

It’s a day to relax, reflect, and connect with the simple joys of creation.

Throughout the “Blossom & Balance” Garden Experience, emphasis is placed on embracing the present moment and enriching the personal journey of each participant. Whether you’re an experienced artist or a novice yogi, this retreat offers a space to nourish the soul, cultivate inner harmony, and find inspiration in the beauty that surrounds us.

So come, join us for a half-day of tranquility and creativity, where every moment is an invitation to unwind, relax, and savor the serenity of the garden.
