A traditional yurt is built to travel with nomadic tribes, and Caleb Erskine of Living Intent Yurt Company built the Mexicali Blues yurt to follow ours. We’re creating another oasis for the Mexicali Tribe this Saturday at our Newcastle Store right on Route One! Leave stressful, high-traffic travel behind and step inside a peaceful place filled with FREE relaxing, mindful and wonderful activities: yoga, henna tattoos, guided meditation, and singing bowl sound healing.
Our Route One Oasis opens at 10:00 am rain or shine, and you won’t want to miss:
10:00 am (Meditation) and 11:00 am (Yoga Class)
FREE Meditation and Yoga with Adele Gale of Midcoast Yoga Shala
Adele Gale is a long-time friend of Pete and Kim Erskine and a gifted yogi with more than 30 years experience. She spent several years as Sheryl Crow’s personal yoga instructor and has delved deeply into sound yoga and meditation. She encourages all of her students to explore different yoga styles and to practice with different yoga teachers, and she will be bringing her own ashtanga-inspired, vigorous postural practice to our yurt. “My thing as an aging yogi is to find the place of greatest freedom in the body or the breath,” Adele explains. “My classes are always accessible to all skill levels. I want to create a moving meditation, to help you find that comfortable, completely embodied place.” This is a can’t-miss opportunity to meditate and practice with an incredible yogi. Limited mats are available, so bring your own if you can.
Noon to 5:00 pm
FREE Henna Body Art with Ella
Get a FREE, all-natural, temporary henna tattoo from Ella, our amazing henna artist.
In traditional Indian culture, mehndi designs awaken the “inner light,” and the intricate beauty of the patterns will illuminate and inspire you all through a rainy summer weekend.
FREE Singing Bowls Sound Therapy with Meghan
Enhance your energy with sound healing! Let Mexicali Blues marketing maven Meghan Costello introduce you to the relaxing, uplifting powers of our handmade Nepalese singing bowls. Meghan will show you how the bowls’ frequencies can raise the vibrations of our physical bodies and subtle energy fields through entrainment—the universal physical pull toward harmony. “Good vibrations” doesn’t begin to describe it, so don’t miss an experience that will let you take on the rest of your day in a refreshed and positive way.
1:00 pm to 3:30pm in the Newcastle Store
LIVE Grateful Dead Tunes from Chuck and Gary
Before or after you explore the yurt oasis, step inside the store to groove to the music of guitar masters Chuck Jewitt and Gary McCue. They’ll be playing their favorite Grateful Dead music for us while you browse the marvelous mix of clothing, jewelry, home décor, accessories and gear you always find at Mexicali Blues.
You can relax and rejuvenate on Route One! We can’t wait to see you at our flagship store in Newcastle tomorrow!
