SPRING AHEAD! A Vision Board Workshop with CATE LEONARD Saturday June 3rd in Ramsey
Sat, 06/03/2017 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm

 "If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it." ~ William Arthur Ward

We all have things that we dream about doing or becoming in our lives. Maybe you want to plan that vacation of a life-time. Maybe you want to transition out of that dead end job. Perhaps you want to be home with your kids. Or maybe you just got tired of your day to day and want to branch out and have some fun.

Those are all wonderful. But dreams can be flimsy, especially when life gets hard. It's easy to become overwhelmed, exhausted, and even to feel like a complete failure. The key to overcoming those feelings? Keep your dreams and goals front of mind. And the easiest (and most fun) way to do that is with a vision board

On Saturday, June 3, 2017 at Yoga Synthesis, Ramsey 2-4 PM I will be hosting a Vision Board Workshop called “Spring Ahead!” Come play with me to create your vision. You’ll meet some new like-minded people, learn some things about yourself and have fun in the process!

Cost of Workshop $50.00 $45.00 early Bird discount expires 5/27
All you have to do is bring an open mind and your enthusiasm!

Bonus: Free journals to the first 20 individuals that sign up!
