Workshops & Retreats

A State of Bliss regularly runs workshops & retreats throughout the year, both on and off-site. Visit our Facebook events page for current information.

Ongoing Events

Private Yoga Sessions

Sherri teaches yoga as medicine as opposed to a competitive pursuit. The term ‘yoga’ actually means ‘union’ and it is intended to reunite YOU back with your body, back with your breath, back with your emotions and back with your spirit.
 
What feels out of balance will become aware to you through this process and allow you the opportunity to let it go. The innate wisdom of the body will begin the restoration process once we become aware and willing.
 
Consider receiving private yoga sessions in the comfort of your own home. One on one yoga sessions will allow you to mindfully build your practice at perhaps a more advanced level of awareness. Emphasis will be on correct alignment, healthy movement and breath work to maximize the benefits of the postures. Classes will be prepared according to your strengths and needs. 
Single session – $75     Multiple class package $50 per session. Must have own mat and quiet space to practice.
 

Meditation Nights

Discover influences that affect your peace of mind and meditative practice. Learn the benefits of meditation and the power of the mind. Join us as we explore various techniques for meditating, influences that disrupt your practice and find something that works for YOU.

Shamanic Journey Nights

Retreats

Sherri regularly hosts longer term retreats throughout the year. Visit her Facebook page to keep up to date with the latest events.

 Gateways Retreat

Gateways are naturally occurring areas on the earth, often marked with significant structures or mounds such at the Mayan Ruins, the Pyramids or Stonehenge. We also have more accessible gateways within our own environment, and it is in this discovery that we can access that which the ancients knew and practiced for 1000’s of years. We also have the most profound gateway within ourselves. But what are they truly for?

Imagine the possibilities as you learn to heal yourself from the past, imagine creating the dreams and desires you so deeply long for, imagine healing your body and your spirit with guidance from your Spirit allies. This is yours to reclaim, it is only in saying YES that we can receive.

Free yourself of the demands, obligations, responsibilities and social expectations, chores and rules, and allow yourself to dip into this immensely transformative and experiential weekend in a remote location in nature. It is only in the quiet that we can begin to see our potentials and establish a powerhouse of allies to support you in moving towards your greatest self. This is not an event to be missed!

You are invited to join us in this intimate yet expansive discovery of the magic and power within and beyond us. We have become entrenched in programming and expectations that hold us back from becoming our own unique, authentic and beautiful beings.

This retreat is a joyful exploration of ourselves, and of our potentials well beyond our wildest dreams. Understanding this is key, then experiencing it becomes our greatest support system in walking forward. Restore balance back to your life, our planet and within your community through the wisdom and experience this immersion provides.

We gather at a beautiful location in the country with charming accommodations for private or semi-private rooms, 40 acres of forested land to explore and the calming rhythms of nature to hold us. The design is to let you taste a huge piece of yourself that may feel buried or lost, to experience a joyful and expressive manifestation of the true you and anchoring those vibrations to bring forward into your life. Embrace that which is yours – the time is now.

Liberate yourself with this immersion, and experience the peace, purpose, joy and abundance that is yours to claim.

I reached out to Sherri with an idea of what I wanted for a solo mini retreat that I was planning for myself.  
What she customized for me was exactly what my body and mind needed.
My Truth has always been “Keep moving, keep moving!”
I am a woman on the go…that’s what I’ve been taught and that’s what been doing my whole adult life.
In 4 days I became “woke” on a yoga mat, on the beach meditating and on a treatment table with Sherri’s guidance.
I listened to my thoughts, my body, and the nature around me and learned to be still (without guilt).
 
I brought my new Truths home and back work with me:  Breathe, Listen and Let things happen.  Emoji
 
I’m already thinking about when I can plan more me time and what I’ll learn.
 
Thank you Sherri…for your wisdom, your insight and your encouragement on my journey.
C.F.
Give yourself permission to ‘let go’ and celebrate your authentic self! Often what we most fear is the very thing that sets us free.
Kind Words

“My experience during the Gateways retreat was life changing; I feel truly transformed and experienced such a deep connection with Nature and Spirit. It has created so much happiness, courage and clarity in my life! I now hold the tools to maintain this connection everyday”

AM

“What a deep and connective experience! This allowed me to shed the mind chatter and be fully present for the rituals and nature connection practices. Sherri guided us through in a caring and kind way and has so much wisdom to share. She provided the context and space for deeper contemplation and healing in such a way that I feel inspired, moved and connected in a much deeper way well beyond the weekend.”
