Rachel’s Experience

Buffalo_ChangeNext month (April), Lindsay Blamire and Wendy Guyker will be teaming up to bring yoga to Rachel’s Experience. Rachel’s Experience is a faith-based, low-cost, multi-session retreat that promotes empowerment and wellness for women. Rachel came and spoke with YIS at our last (February) meeting about her next retreat –which includes a one-night hotel orientation, six consecutive Thursday evening sessions at Sisters Hospital in Buffalo, NY, and a final celebration dinner. Attendance is anticipated to be about 20 women, and Lindsay and Wendy will orient these amazing women to yoga, mindfulness, and relaxation techniques with six 45-minute practices. Rachel is an LMSW who, through her studies as well as her personal encounters of facing and overcoming challenges, was inspired to 1618320_552274734879689_1713257511_ocreate an experience for women that would give them tools and each other to heal and practice healthier living together. Rachel truly embodies our sentiment of “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” and YIS, Lindsay, and Wendy are honored and excited to bring yoga to this special group! To help with these efforts, YIS is looking for TWENTY yoga mats, blocks and straps to help make this happen. Please let Lindsay, Wendy, or Catherine know if you have a gently used mat or other yoga equipment that you would like to donate.
