feel freeto shop local this Holiday season and support Arcadia and your Metta Community. "Did you know that on average, 48 percent of each purchase at local independent businesses is recirculated locally, compared to less than 14 percent of purchases made at chain stores? Keeping purchases close to home helps communities in countless ways, and consumers need to recognize this as they make their purchase decision." You can read more about these interesting statistics of Holiday shopping in the Forbes article "Why shopping Independent stores this Holiday season should be on your to-do-list". Metta Yoga Boutique Buyer, Alicia Zell, has searched out top quality, unique resorces and merchandize to support your healthy wellness lifestyle. Now you can shop not only for yoga props and apparel, but also for aroma therapy products, jewelry, candles, soaps - many from local businesses and artisans.

feel freeto experience this unique class, combining Yin Yoga, Gong Bath & Binaural Beats Sound Therapy. It is quiet, meditative practice with an emphasis on the hips and spine. Through mindful muscle relaxation, yin yoga promotes the healthy flow of energy in the body through the connective tissue. Postures held for longer periods give practitioners the opportunity to observe and bring awareness to the breath and sensation in the body. A gong bath is sound therapy for your body. It creates a deep relaxation within your own body and stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning. The bath clears the nerve endings and regenerates the parasympathetic system which is responsive to sound. Register for Arcadia here.
