Opportunities to Deepen Your Yoga Practice & Help Your Community


Meridians and Your Yoga Practice 

Jamie Jackson L.A.cc and Jennifer Dixon MBA ERYT 500

February 23, 2019 12:30-3:00

Are you interested in learning more about how your yoga practice impacts your personal wellness? Well, you are in for a super special treat! Our very own Jennifer Dixon teams up with thrive partner and friend, Jamie Jackson Koeninger of the The Mi Lu Center to discuss the Meridians of your body, as taught in Traditional Chinese Medicine, where they are, and what they correspond to, and then we will discover how your yoga practice can help to bring about openness along these energetic lines within your body.
The workshop includes a 60 minute meditative yin class led by Jennifer Dixon (and a graduating Teacher Trainee from the Thrive Yoga and Wellness 200 hr Certified Yoga Teacher Training Program) where you will be led through specific poses to help physically find, feel, see, & maybe even open up some of the meridians discussed during the workshop. You will leave the workshop feeling a little smarter and perhaps a little more open.

Jamie Jackson L.A.cc is our resident Acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist that is passionate about helping people.  She loves to help guide you to wellness through Traditional Chinese Medicine.  She is also an active yoga practitioner and is excited to show how the two Eastern Practices can come together to bring about wellbeing.

Thrive Yoga and Wellness Teacher Trainees

Coming up!!  Our very best, and BIGGEST fund raiser!  Last year, we raised over $2000 for Mending Arrow Ranch -- can you help us beat that?  Come meet us down at the farm for an afternoon of fun, yoga and, of course, GOATS!  These resident goats are used in the Therapy program at the ranch and are always a fun time to play, snuggle, and practice with!  We can't wait to see you down on the farm!

Chattanooga Goat Yoga started at Mending Arrow Ranch with Thrive Yoga and Wellness.  In our first fund raising event, we raised over $1000 in class donations, and even more in T-shirt purchases and online donations!  Our second event brought the ranch another $1000!  This ranch has a mission to help our children and young girls through animals.  Each participant works with one of the several horses, goats, or even dogs to help them beat everything from Autism to Cerebral Palsy.  Every donation goes back to the Ranch to improving the lives of these beautiful children and we can't wait have you join us!
