Healing Elements, the wellness center at 2290 Como Ave. in St. Anthony Park, will expand to Ramsey, Minn., for a weekend in September when it offers its first yoga retreat.
The two-day Find Your Roots Food and Yoga Retreat will be held Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 16-17, at Garden Farme, an organic family farm 30 miles northwest of the Twin Cities. The event will include yoga classes, herbal workshops and walks, camping and exploration, jewelry making and food created by the Chakra Chef, Brian Sharpe. Sharpe is known for “creating colorful food that balances the chakras,” said Samantha Huet, owner of Healing Elements.
Huet, Healing Elements studio manager Sara Sleeper and wellness associate Frank Licari created what Huet calls an “accessible retreat” in hopes of bringing Healing Elements and its community together outside of St. Anthony Park. “It’s a beautiful land,” Huet said.
Participants will be able to participate in a variety of workshops but also spend time on their own exploring the land, bird watching or even helping Sharpe create the meals. The event comes just before the autumn equinox and the focus of the retreat will be to give attendees tools for self-care as we head into fall and winter, Huet said.
The cost for the two-day retreat is $300, but goes up to $350 after Sept. 1. The fee includes four meals, camping, a welcome kit and a variety of activities. Attendances is limited to 40. To find out more, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
