One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history. Join the Hudson Valley community for a celebration of ourselves and our ability to empower and assist others through COMMUNITY, CARING and REVOLUTION. Teachers and healers from around the county will be donating their classes for the day with all proceeds going to support the Washbourne House, a shelter which houses and supports survivors of domestic violence.
Suggested Donation – $40 for full enjoyment of any and all classes a part of this REVOLUTION. See the poster below or the event website for a list of participating locations and the complete schedule. Tickets can be purchased in advance at any participating location or the day of the event.
This year we are “ENLARGING, DEEPENING AND EXPANDING” the call for REVOLUTION, harnessing our COLLECTIVE ENERGY, and connecting our BODIES with the REVOLUTION.
“The struggle of humanity is the struggle to return to our bodies. Through trauma, cruelty, shame, oppression, violence, rape, and exclusion, the body of the human species has been hurt, wounded, and we have been forced to flee our bodies.”
Through yoga, meditation, dance and many more healing modalities, we will join in this year’s Revolution bringing about a “new kind of consciousness – one where violence will be resisted until it is unthinkable.”

In our busy, over-stimulated lives, it’s not often enough that we give ourselves time to recharge our bodies in a restful, reflective way. The practice of Yin Yoga slows us down and though quietly passive, is deeply challenging on many levels. Designed to elongate the connective tissues (ligaments and fascia), postures are held for a long period of time with the depth of the pose being guided by attention, breath and patience.
The Restorative Yoga process is all about ‘un-doing’ which, for many of us, is easier said than done. This vital practice calms the nervous system and encourages the exploration of total relaxation. Often supported by blankets, bolsters and blocks, Restorative Yoga allows the body to be completely supported, involving little to no muscular effort, creating space for a completely receptive state of being.
Pursuing her love of dance, Bobbie, a graduate of Canada’s National Ballet School moved from her native Toronto to NY in 2005. Though the equation of Dancer to Yoga Teacher is a common one; it was a life-altering illness that tuned her in to the power of a daily, dedicated Yoga practice. Pretty soon, the practice became a way of life, with lessons learned on the mat melding with every day relationships and events.
A sweet, soulful teacher, Bobbie encourages students to discover ‘that which does not change’; a deep connection to our spirit that lies beneath external conditioning and habitual patterns. Her classes?….well, it depends what you’re coming for….Vinyasa classes are creative, challenging and fun. Drawing on her dance background, the sequencing is expressive and fluid while encouraging alignment (and a healthy use of props!) Bobbie’s yin/stretch/restorative classes are an invitation to pause, yield to the sense of support, turn inward and take the practice to a quiet, nourishing place; away from the external stress of our busy lives.
Endless gratitude to Teachers: Diana Lockett, Amanda Harding and Raghunath for their encouragement, support and loving guidance on this incredible path.

Come learn about Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils and how they can make a huge difference in the quality of your life. Essential oils are the immune system of plants making them a completely natural and non-toxic way to positively impact your health and wellbeing. Essential Oils work with your body vs. against it and they are safe to use during pregnancy, on small children and with pets! If you’re already eating organic foods and using dried herbs then you NEED to hear this info and if you’re trying to be more holistically oriented then you don’t want to miss out. We will cover the history of essential oil usage, why brand matters, how to create a non-toxic home, why essential oils work, 10 oils and how to use them for common ailments that pop up (fever, headaches, migraines, stress, anxiety, depression, bug bites, and constipation to name a few), how to naturally boost your immune system and much more. This will be an experiential class where you get to smell, apply and taste (yes, you can ingest these oils) if you wish! Option to order oils will be available if you choose.
Jennifer Hairston-Davis is big on empowerment and helping others in mind, body and soul. She is a NYS Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Reiki Master Teacher and Young Living Consultant. She has a Bachelor’s of Arts in Psychology from Binghamton University and a Masters in Social Work from Columbia University. Jennifer has been in clinical practice as a psychotherapist for 11 years and has her own practice in Merrick, NY. She also teaches Reiki classes regularly and holds a monthly healing circle as a safe place for spiritual exploration and the practice / advancement of energy work. Jennifer began her journey with Young Living Essential Oils in October of 2014. Reiki, the study of energy and a chronically sick child led her into the world of natural healing. Jennifer is a firm believer that people should have choices, including non-toxic and natural wellness solutions, such that they can take their health into their own hands (literally and figuratively). As a result, she teaches classes on the benefits of essential oils, how to use them and what they can be used for. Essential oils are infused in her lifestyle and healing practices as tools to increase physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. After months of using the oils on herself and her family, she decided to start sharing her experiences with others and has helped many people to embrace a new way of living.
