Story Alchemy
Rachel Schaeffer
Stories are powerful. The ones we tell ourselves are the most important of all. Gain the knowledge and confidence you need to create your new life story.

Change Your Breathing, Change Your Life
Bob Soulliere
Take the steering wheel of your day through breath and intention. This dabbler introduces you to the power of breathwork—an amazing mind-body practice that awakens your innate capacity to feel happier, more empowered, and at home in your own skin. Bob teaches breathing you can apply immediately in your daily life to choose how you feel and perform: energized, mindful, efficient, transcendent, or grounded and peaceful. Prerequisite? Just an open, curious attitude. However, you cannot attend if you have seizure disorders, are pregnant, or have any serious cardiovascular issue.  Enrollment limited to 15.

Tennis Inside the Zone
Rob Polishook
***Limited Enrollment, please sign up at Guest Services
In this dabbler, we learn off-court exercises that strengthen concentration and somatic centeredness. Then we head to the courts to build awareness and trust, to unleash our inner player, and most of all have fun. Come on over to the tennis courts and unleash your inner player. Beginners to advanced levels; please wear sneakers and shorts or work-out pants.
(***This program will be cancelled if there is inclement weather.)

Zumba® (1-hour class: 2:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m. & 3:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.)
Veronica Domingo
Get your blood pumping with Zumba®—a Latin-inspired, easy to follow, calorie-burning, dance fitness-party™ workout that combines a motivating fusion of international music with dynamic moves that allow you to dance away your worries. Feel the music and let loose. Bring water and dress to sweat for this exercise in disguise.

The Wonder Room
Daniel Mack
Daniel Mack invites Dabblers to play in what he calls the Wonder Room. Feed your need for awe and wonder in Dan’s pop-up collection of enchanting objects. Then make your own rustic creations from interesting materials and minimal instruction at several Play Stations well-stocked with sticks, stones, bones, feathers and other found objects—it’s time to trust in the innate creativity alive and well within you.

Groundation: Trance Dance and Collapse
Sienna Creasy
The art of surrender is best experienced after complete exhaustion and energetic combustion. Join Sienna Creasy for a signature experience that combines Prana Flow Trance Dance to ignite the fire and energy in the soul and cells to be followed by a Deep Restorative Relaxation and Yoga Nidra Journey. Adult nap time will never feel as good as this.


Evening Events
