Come reconnect with your inner goddess! This workshop will feature a unique candlelit yoga and mindful movement experience designed to reconnect women to their feminine power and radiance in a safe space. We will move through light yoga flows, experience a body love meditation, and enjoy a raw chocolate tasting! Raw cacao helps to open the heart chakra, helping us to reconnect to the divine feminine within. Join us!

The Yoga Barn at Four Hills Farm is in a rustic, natural setting. Please bring your yoga mat and a water bottle.

About the teachers
Surya Carvalho RYT-700
Surya has felt the benefits of yoga in her body, mind, and soul ever since her yoga practice helped her recover from a whiplash injury. Ever since her recovery she has been committed to sharing the benefits of this practice with as many people as possible around the world. She is passionate about yoga and bringing all the aspects of yogic living to her classes and daily life. Surya is dedicated to creating a safe and nurturing environment for students that is supportive to personal and spiritual growth. In the last four years she has been working as a traveling yoga teacher and feels blessed for this journey which included lots of personal growth and development. During her travels Surya has received her yoga training and taught yoga in Brazil, India, Cambodia, Hawaii, California, and the Philippines.

Surya began her practice as a child as her mother was also a yoga teacher. As a teenager, after joining the National School of Circus in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, she trained in acrobatics, trapeze, and ropes. She was also part of a professional theater and used her acrobatic abilities as an actress. Surya went on to pursue an academic career and began attending yoga classes to release some of the stress related to her profession. She did her first Yoga Teacher Training in Ashtanga Yoga in Thailand with Lorraine Taylor which made her recognize yoga as her true calling. Recently in Mysore, India, Surya furthered her yoga education by completing her 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training in Hatha Yoga. Surya has been teaching ever since and loves what she does; she feels spiritually called to this practice and brings a sense of warmth, fun, and yogic wisdom to all her students.

Devon Maresco RYT-200
Devon is the Director of the Yoga Barn at Four Hills Farm. She began taking yoga classes in high school and fell in love with the sense of calm and deep connection to her body that it brought to her. She had always been an athlete and loved the soft, mindful awareness yoga brought to her body and her life. She continued taking classes in college and received her RYT-200 in Hatha and Vinyasa as an intensive from School Yoga Institute in Fort Collins, CO. She has since become a Certified Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NYC and is currently studying for a Masters degree in Integrative Nutrition from the Maryland University of Integrative Health in Laurel, MD. Having managed a belly dance and holistic health studio for women she has seen first-hand the deeply healing effects of natural, embodied, grounding movement. She is so grateful to have found a deep mind-body connection and a sense of joyful embodied bliss through yoga and loves to share that with her students.
