Revitalize Yourself with Foot Reflexology!
Back By Popular Demand! Saturday, July 7th
Let Breathe member and certified reflexologist Nicole Saadvandi give you a foot massage that goes beyond the routine. Reflexology is an ancient natural healing therapeutic art and science with roots dating back some 4,000 years to China and Egypt. Modern foot reflexology is the practice of applying precise pressure using the hands and fingers to specific points on each foot which are believed to correspond to specific organs, structures and energies in everyone. This manual application of pressure stimulates the body’s own healing system, balancing the holy grail of wellness: mind, body and spirit. You will practically float from your session!
- reduces stress and induces deep relaxation
- improves circulation and energy flow
- influences your body’s natural cleansing abilities
Nicole will be hosting five 30-minute mini-treatments for $20 each, starting at 2:15PM.
To register, you can go to our Calendar page and select the time slot on July 7th that works best for you. You can also contact Nicole directly at 703-338-8952 or send her an email. Nicole is happy to answer your reflexology curiosities!
BroGa at Breathe: Real Men Can't Touch Their Toes
Friday, July 13th - 8:00pm
BroGa is BACK! Our first BroGa event on June 8, 2018, was a success and we're bringing it back for you because you asked us to! If you didn't make it the first time, let us fill you in...
BroGa at Breathe is a fun-filled and super easy-going yoga practice created just for dudes and all your brethren who also might not be able to touch their toes but who are man enough to try. Did we mention beer? We will have beer for you.
You'll learn how yoga can help you to up your golf game, improve your reach in tennis, swimming, boxing, weed-whacking or remote control aiming! You'll also experience how it will help you to reduce and manage your stress and your self-awareness. We want to help you apply yoga for relevance in your life where it really matters: off the mat.
This is a special offering for men only, taught by Molly Field who has only brothers and sons and Liz Olmo who's a former Navy aviator and who also works with veterans. So these women got game and they can keep you laughing at yourself because that's what life is all about.
You'll find that it’s only yoga. And it’s also really good for you. After the practice, stick around for a beer-- we’ll have some waiting in the cooler for you (including root and ginger!)

Sound Bath Meditation
Next Date: Sunday, July 22, 7:30-8:30pm
According to sonic specialist Monte Hansen from the Crystal Ashram near Annapolis MD, “A sound bath is an immersion in sound frequency that cleans your soul.” Leave your rubber ducky at home. Bring your blankie instead, for this super relaxing immersion! According to cutting-edge doctors from Harvard, some of the deepest most profound healing in the body is accomplished with sound frequency.
Join us when Human Activation sound frequency specialist Robert Lee will be playing several of these rare Singing Bowls, some of which are over 200 years old. Hear the amazing story of how the practice was abandoned long ago and rediscovered in modern times. Come experience these gifts from the past in this NON-religious practice of our present. Be rejuvenated or just captivated by this unique musical performance.
Bring your pillows, blankies, and yoga mats and snuggle into the comfort of the tranquil sounds. Feel free to sit, lay, or even stand! Meditating with singing bowls has been known to reduce blood pressure more than guided meditation alone.
- 7:30pm Musical Reception
- 7:45pm Doors Close & Meditation Begins
- 8:00pm Meditation Ends, Followed by Community Discussion & Fellowship
