New Years Day Polar Plunge

spa manzanita presents (use to be just Janice but now she blames the spa)

5TH ANNUAL

NEW YEARS DAY POLAR PLUNGE

Once again its time to shed your inhibitions, fear, commons sense and clothes (bathing suits are pretty much required it's a family event)!

When: New Years Day of course!

Where: Neahkahnie Beach, the parking lot just north of the stop sign on Beulah Reed Road. It's the last big parking area on the north end of the beach. (one mile north of Laneda Ave downtown).

Time: 10:00 am that's the time we meet and take pictures and have our friends (the ones not doing it) laugh at us. Then we "just do it".

Please try to be on time so we don't have to freeze our tuckus off while you are running up yelling "wait for me"!

Post: After the plunge you are invited to come by spa manzanita for hot cider, tea, treats and war stories!

Any questions: If you want to know if it's crazy to do this well yes and no is the answer!  Any other questions just call or email Janice Gaines at the spa.

Zen Lifestyle Workshop

spa manzanita presents

 

Zen Lifestyles Class

Zen Lifestyles is an interactive, group process experience that involves learning about, and practicing the basic principles of relaxed thinking, mindful attention, emotional vibrancy, behavioral flexibility, soulful creativity, and spiritual harmony and peace. This class includes meditation, spontaneous movement and dance, free-form art and writing, open-ended conversation and narration….and lots of laughter, fun, and joyous relationship-building between participants.  Although the “theory” evolved from early Japanese Buddhism, Chinese Taoism, and Christian Mysticism….this class is non-religious in nature….and focuses on fundamental dynamics of compassion, freedom, creativity, happiness, community-building, and love.

Cardiovascular Workshop Follow-Up

By all accounts the workshop was a super success! With ten gals and one guy  (who had just had shoulder surgery), we all topped Neahkahnie Mountain on Sunday morning, the weather was perfect, a beautiful fall day.

Everyone was very successful at applying what we learned on Saturday to the hike, setting aerobic heart-rate zones, learning and testing out the range at which one could work at, comparing those numbers to perceived efforts to real effort.

A very motivating realization.

Just a note that the most fit hiker in the workshop was 60 years young and following close behind was another 63 year young.

A true inspiration to all including me.

I look forward to teaching this workshop again and if you are interested in being contacted about that please just drop me a note.
