Cedar Sanctuary is a Seattle Eastside oasis featuring wellness classes and mini-retreats to rejuvenate body, soul, and spirit. It is also home base for the Wellness Professionals Network. (Stay-tuned and join us on Facebook here!)

You can choose from a variety of preset programs below or custom design an afternoon of indulgences for your special occasion or gathering with friends. Pick one or more modalities from below, and you can then enjoy a cuppa, sit by a fire (inside/out), find a reading spot in the woods or an inside nook, bask in an indoor infrared sauna with therapeutic lights, indulge your footsies in an aromatic foot bath, your whole body in a massage chair, or submerge yourself in the outdoors hot tub. All that, and no travel hassle. Aaaaaah…

SoulDance: Thursday, November 15, 6:30-8pm

Investment: $20 (space limited to 8 participants): Save-your-spot here
We were born to move, and SoulDance is a safe and creative space to dance your dance ‘like nobody’s watching”. Dancing with no judgment of ‘right’ ways to move, this is a place for you to be you. To dance your soul with a freestyle movement experience that will light up your body, your smile, and your life. Come as you are.
“In a society that worships love, freedom, and beauty, dance is sacred. It is a prayer for the future, a remembrance of the past and a joyful exclamation of thanks for the present.”
-Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
(Co-ed. No fitness or dance experience is necessary. Dance barefoot, wearing socks, or flat inside shoes.)
Brenda Loukes-Johnson creates a juicy free-flowing journey for each SoulDance session using voice and soul-stirring music, while drawing on her experiences as a dance instructor, Kahuna transformational bodyworker, and holding space for creative Soulpainting programs. Contact Brenda with questions at bloukesb@gmail.com

This event plants the seed for SoulDance to become a regular program at Cedar Sanctuary in 2019. Contact Susan Creighton to request your own gathering or event including programs like SoulDance: susan333@live.com or 425.298.6428

This intimate yoga class is focused on breath, movement, and meditation. Suitable for students of all levels, group classes are designed using safe sequencing and adaptation to serve individual needs. Breath is the fundamental link between body, mind, emotion, and spirit and it is emphasized in Viniyoga as the medium for all practice. Repetition and stay in a pose helps to build flexibility and strength as well as re-pattern bodily movement and habits (neuromuscular reintegration). The class ends with a guided meditation to calm and focus awareness.
