Celebrate Claudia’s 40th Birthday w/Tour and Volunteer @Pasture Pals

So many know my love for horses and animals. Just shy of 2 years ago, I fell madly in love with a blind Leopard Appaloosa named Dottie Orenda from Pasture Pals ER. In December of 2016 I was fortunate to adopt her. Though her time with me was short lived, her spirit will always live in me. Dudley of Planet Peace Affiliates Palace Peace was also adopted by friend Jules as a seeing and familiar companion for Dottie Orenda. He is doing great!

Join me in celebrating my 40th Birthday in representing Raleigh NC Yoga’s Karma Yoga event beginning our morning with Meet and Greet Tour of the animals of Pasture Pals, followed by good hard hands on upkeep farm work.
There are 2 different locations and we will accomplish all that we can. All for a great cause.

Every day animals have no choice but to rely on the hands of humans and unfortunately there are some not so good humans out there. And then there are some great humans such as us and the good people of Pasture Pals.

Meet & Greet Tour is a $25 donation for Adults
$25 pays for one bag of feed and one bag of Chaffhaye. They spend $965 a week of feed so that would go a long way to help!

This is a family event, so if you want to bring your kiddos then their fee is based on Dimes for Donkeys and Quarters for Horses. They take a water bottle and fill it up with change as the donation for their tour. I track who turned in what bottle and give a total for each after they have been counted. Email Claudia to reserve your space by clicking the button below.

7 Day Optimal Body Kickstart

In this workshop we will commit to 7 days of  nourishing and cleansing our bodies with real food.  We will set an intention, hold ourselves accountable and support each other as we gather the tools to nurture our ‘highest and best’ or optimal bodies.  We will learn how to integrate simple yet effective changes and add new healthy habits to our daily menus to help us look and feel better.

This is not a 7 day weight loss plan or diet (even though you may lose weight and/or change your diet) but a kickstart to a sustainable healthy lifestyle.  Workshop will include 3 meet up sessions (beginning, middle & end of 7 day period) for a total of 4 hours with the option to add 3 yoga classes immediately before or after each session at a discounted rate.

Participants will receive grocery list ideas, sample recipes, healthy lifestyle tips, unconditional support and more!

We will meet Sunday, July 8 4-5:30pm, Wednesday, July 11 7:30-8:30pm & Sunday, July 15 4-5:30pm (Yoga classes to be held at 6pm each day) Cost: $65 workshop only or $95 workshop & yoga.
