Feelin' Good studio is a creative healing force empowering self expression through the visual arts, yoga and reflexology. Offering services in my home studio located in Leesburg, Virginia and at Beloved Yoga in Reston, Virigina. Feelin' Good Studio offers reflexology for the feet, hands and ears, Mehndi Henna Body Adornment and Private Yoga Instruction. Reflexology is a healing art of ancient origin. It is a safe, effective and therapeutic method for persons of all ages, relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet, hands and ears. This controlled pressure alleviates the source of the discomfort. In the absence of any particular malady or abnormality, reflexology may be as effective for promoting good health and for preventing illness as it may be for relieving symptoms of stress, injury, and illness. Reflexologists work from maps of predefined pressure points that are located on the hands and feet. These pressure points are reputed to connect directly through the nervous system and affect the bodily organs and glands. The reflexologist manipulates the pressure points according to specific techniques of reflexology therapy. By means of this touching therapy, any part of the body that is the source of pain, illness, or potential debility can be strengthened through the application of pressure at the respective foot or hand location. http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/reflexology yoga : private instruction. grow your yoga! classes + workshops for children, adults and communities yoga + live music events: The Yoga Ecstatic visit us on Facebook pranassage: a rhythmic & soothing blend of yoga and bodywork that offers profound relaxation - imagine yoga being done to you. art: photography . landscape + textural acrylic painting . ceramic tile found object art: mobiles . wall hangings . sacred spaces . altars available for purchase at tendrilsofgreen.etsy.com Lara's visionary self taught artistic expression is personal and playful story telling.

Beautiful morning of yoga with a courageous circle of women at Stone Tower Winery on Saturday. What a privilege it is to teach in this space. Our circle covered the ground exactly where we had our wedding ceremony 9 months ago. Hallowed ground. Love every moment of being in this magic place!

Thrilled to share that I will be teaching in the most beautiful space I have yet to encounter in Leesburg • Stone Tower Winery
Saturday, June 20th
10:30 to 11:30am

Married on this hillside 8 months ago, it feels like home. A family owned & operated business that shines through its happy employees, welcoming spaces & superb wines, Stone Tower is a perfect place to renew your body, mind & spirit.

Class Description:
Stretch, strengthen and relax with our all-levels Vinyasa yoga class on the first & third Saturdays of every month. Weather-permitting, our practice will take place outside with beautiful vineyard views. This fun and invigorating class is donation-based (suggested: $10). All of the contributions from this week's class will be donated to the Loudoun YMCA and will help send kids to summer camp.

Please send any questions and RSVPs to Lacey at: [email protected]

Stone Tower is located 10 minutes south of downtown Leesburg off of Rt15 at:
19925 Hogback Mountain Rd, Leesburg, VA 20175

OM Shanti. Shanti Shanti.
Peace - Lara

❤️ hearts open, reaching for the sky & flying with big smiles on their faces. This is my Sunday morning happy place! Love teaching these dedicated & fun loving yoginis.

Thought we could use a little sunshine today! ☀️ The solar plexus, or the celiac plexus, is the largest autonomic nerve center in the abdominal cavity. This is a very sensitive & powerful reflex point. To find this "sunshine spot", place your thumb between the 2nd and 3rd toe and glide it straight down over the pads until you feel your thumb sink into the soft indent right below the pads. Slowly push your thumb into the reflex and hold. Take a slow deep breath, while exhaling gently release your thumb. Feel the nerve bundle in your diaphragm relax and radiate warmth from within.

"Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave,
but not our hearts " - Oliver Wendell Holmes
