Join Marge & Sydney right here in Richmond for a mini-treat gathering during the most beautiful time of the year in Virginia - fall!

Hosted by Casa O'Neill, a private residence in a safe and charming neighborhood, we have lovingly designed a special itinerary of our favorite movement practices, nourishment, restfulness tools, and goodies to share with you.

Together, we will explore creative vinyasa, yin yoga, myofasical release, restorative, yoga nidra, as well as an invitation to take a group promenade to enjoy the breathtaking fall foliage in this neighborhood full of lush, majestic trees.

 

Friday night will feature a nourishing home cooked meal post-practice, and Saturday morning we will enjoy a revitalizing brunch together. We will also get a lovely tea time with some special locally baked treats before cozying up for our final restorative practice and sending you on your way, bellies and hearts full.

Meet Marge:

Marge (she/her) proudly bears a lifetime affinity for movement and languages, having spent most of her years calling upon the body as her chosen tool of artistic expression in addition to learning Spanish, Italian, and French. She holds a BFA in dance and choreography, a professional certificate of contemporary circus arts, and an E-RYT 500 YACEP Yoga Alliance credential. Her studies, creations, teachings, and performances have blown her all across the globe and today she finds herself navigating an international move to Dublin, Ireland. Practitioners in Marge’s hands can expect a unique blend of movement, grace, passion, humor, and awakening to one’s own innate artistry.

Meet Sydney:

Sydney (she/her) is the Founder of The Happier Human Project, a small RVA business with its foundations in yoga and mindfulness. Sydney discovered yoga at her local YMCA in high school and has been hooked ever since. Guided by her personal practice and love for creative movement, Sydney landed in a class led by Marge almost a decade ago and it was magic. Having undergone numerous trainings and mentorship under Marge, Sydney is living her dream as she leads a vast array of class styles in public studios as well as private sessions from the specialized space in her own home.

 

Her enthusiasm is palpable, she loves people as much as she loves yoga, and she can’t wait to meet YOU!

Meet the space:

Casa O'Neill is a private residence in the Westhampton neighborhood of Richmond, VA.

The Yoga Room started as a dream. The O'Neill's had a guest bedroom that was used a few times a year. They decided to undertake a minor renovation to transform it into a space where local yogis could meet for small group classes on a weekly basis… and there it sits today, a space for intimate groups to gather and enjoy sharing breath, movement, and community.

The space features an easily accessible outdoor entrance as well as a private ensuite bathroom. Blocks, bolsters, tennis balls, oils, and eye pillows are provided, and participants are kindly asked to supply their own yoga mat and BYOB - bring your own blankies!

Parking is street-side and widely available in this charming and super safe neighborhood. Address will be shared directly with participants upon registration.

led by Marge

Informed by TCM's meridian system, this slow and sweet yin class paired with self acupressure and myofascial release will surely have you in your feels. Pens and little notebooks will be provided as various prompts will be sprinkled throughout class, should you feel compelled to jot down any 'yinspiration' that comes your way.

Silent Tea & Treats

Post yin, we welcome you to enjoy a warm and soothing mug of steamy herbal tea paired with locally baked sweet treats. You are encouraged to practice a mindful, personal, and silent tea ritual with yourself in the shared garden space before winding all the way down for our restorative practice.

Our hope is that you feel comfortable enough to scatter about the garden, sip your tea, and simply relish the moment as it is.

Restorative + Oils + Nidra

led by Sydney & Marge

Bellies and hearts warm and full, what else to do but rest & digest?

We are delighted to gift you our Cozy Up signature scent designed by our friend Natalie Wynn as Sydney delivers a Happier Human staple offering: a restorative practice paired with oils. Marge will round out the class by leading a dreamy nidra, sending you back out into the crisp fall breeze to float away home with an easy smile, gentle heart, and body and mind feeling both rested & restored.

Thank you for mini-treating with us!
