Upcoming Yoga Workshops and Events with Julie
Deep rest facilitates healthful digestion, sleep, immune function, muscular repair, and even emotional processing. Touch is one of the most powerful ways to access your own internal healing capabilities. Join Julie for a deeply relaxing, stress-melting experience that combines restful Restorative yoga and delightful, gentle, hands-on Restorative touch. Rest in the most comfortable positions possible supported by plenty of props, and then go deep into the healing experience of a nervous system calmed and supported by hands-on support from Julie.
Sunday, July 21 | 2:00pm-4:00pm

*Register for both weekend workshops for $90+hst!
Join Julie Peters for the launch and celebration of her new book Want: 8 Steps to Recovering Desire, Passion, and Pleasure After Sexual Assault (Mango 2019). Enjoy the delicious food and drink at Calabash and enjoy some fantastic poetry, dance, and music on the theme of Desire!
Bring your copy of the book (or a receipt from Amazon) as your cover fee and have it signed! Cover is $15 otherwise.
WANT is an incredibly intimate story of one person’s recovery, survival, and everything that comes after. It is about the possibilities of love, desire, and pleasure after trauma and all the ways we can help ourselves get through. It is the most fun book about sexual assault you’ve ever read!
