Artemis From Women’s Retreats to Art Classes

In 2016, Owner Donna Deerin Ward started offering small woman’s retreats and a year later was installed into a beautiful antique Red Lion building offering a full suite of classes including Antigravity Aerial Fitness, Yoga, and Art Workshops.

Why Retreats? “There is a very special bond that women share together. and they sacrifice a lot of their time making sure that other people in their life are happy, they never pay attention to themselves.” Donna Said, ” It’s about self-care and it’s about helping them remember why they are important.”

What are the Health Benefits of Yoga?

Yoga focuses on your body’s natural tendency toward health and self-healing.

“The purpose of yoga is to build strength, awareness, and harmony in both the mind and body,” explains Natalie Nevins, DO, a board-certified osteopathic family physician and certified Kundalini Yoga instructor in Hollywood, California.

“The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches, and carpal tunnel syndrome,” explains Dr. Nevins.

Other physical benefits of yoga include:

  • increased flexibility
  • increased muscle strength and tone
  • improved respiration, energy and vitality
  • maintaining a balanced metabolism
  • weight reduction
  • cardio and circulatory health
  • improved athletic performance
  • protection from injury

Aside from the many physical benefits, one benefit that is considered by many to be the best is how it helps a person manage their stress, which is known to have devastating effects on the body and mind.

The incorporation of Yoga’s meditation and breathing helps improve a person’s mental well-being.

“Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increases body awareness; relieves chronic stress patterns; relaxes the mind; centers attention, and sharpens concentration,” says Dr. Nevins.
