March 2020:
Nutrition & Balance

During the month of March we celebrate National Nutrition Month, as well as witness the coming of the Spring Equinox. The Spring Equinox is one of only two days a year when day and night are equal in length, when the Sun’s yearly cycle is perfectly balanced between the Northern and Southern hemispheres. In our minds, it seems a natural fit to pair these important parts of wellness into a monthly celebration of both balanced nutrition habits and a more centered way of life. 

Explore our full schedule of exciting and educational events at The Lodge at Woodloch, featuring inspirational and motivational guest speakers, available to elevate your consciousness and personal awareness.

Full Worm Moon
March 9th
Because we take our cues from nature, we have developed a Full Moon Series for 2020. Each month, we will pay homage to the beauty & wonderment that each unique full moon brings.

March’s full Moon goes by “Worm Moon” because earthworm casts appear from the thawing ground, heralding the return of robins. Northern tribes knew it as the Full Crow Moon; to the settlers, it was the Lenten Moon or the Full Sap Moon.

Full Moon Yoga: This yoga practice will calm the mind and draw your awareness inward. Moon Salutations are useful when energy is high and a tranquil, quiet presence is required. All Levels Welcome.

Pen and Ink Drawing: Let's embrace the Full Worm Moon by creating the full moon using inks!  This fun and easy class will inspire your hidden artist.

Full Moon Walk: Whether by boot or snowshoe, follow our Outdoor Adventure guide on a moonlit tour through our tranquil wooded 500 acres. Breathe in the crisp evening air and enjoy the natural sounds as we  tune out the chaos of life and tune in to the tranquil symphony of nature. Your Full Worm Moon journey will conclude with a cozy campfire and s’mores.  A perfect ending to a relaxing day!

Rich Reiter, Musician

March 27th-29th
Rich Reiter has been a Lodge favorite since we first opened. Participants drum together in this exhilarating and unifying activity. Reiter studied African drumming in Senegal and he brings many drums and percussion instruments for everyone to use (but bring yours if you have some). No musical training is necessary! Spiritual Drumming helps people experience a closeness with their fellow drummers and feel more exuberant about being powerfully alive. Richard Reiter is uniquely qualified to enhance your spa experience. He has a B.A. in Psychology, M.M. in Music Education, New Jersey Music Teacher Certification, and is a student of Arthur Hull (the guru of drum circles) as well as a nationally acclaimed jazz musician and Emmy Award winning composer. Reiter has attended workshops at Omega Institute, Morristown Hospital Mind/Body Center and Starseed Yoga, and has become one of the Northeast's most prominent drum circle facilitators.
