About our Yoga and Wellness Classes and Instructor:
Founder and CEO, Ellen Harris, DrPH, RYT-500, leads the gentle Yoga and Wellness classes at her Three Blessings Yoga Farm and Wellness Center.
Dr. Harris received her yoga teacher training and certification at Spiritual Essence Yoga & Wellness Center in Upper Marlboro, MD. She holds a doctorate in Public Health Nutrition from the University of Texas School of Public Health at Houston.
Her yoga classes are less intense than other yoga forms and puts far less stress on the body, which is ideal for people interested in movement, rehabilitating after an injury, or simply maintaining a more mindful, gentle practice. Her wellness classes focus on enhancing general well-being and finding your zen. She incorporates yoga, other wellness modalities, food, and creative expression into these classes.
Ellen also includes meditation, brief inspirational readings and yogic breathing in her classes. The intent is to lead you towards more meditative, contemplative moments to nurture mind, body, and spirit
Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Yoga Massage combines yoga, Ayurveda (an ancient, natural healing system) and meditation.
It’s done mostly on a large floor mat in loose, comfortable clothes. A practitioner uses rhythmic motion, hand palming and thumbing along the body’s energy lines, gentle stretching, and breathing to create a calming, healing, relaxing massage experience. Ellen is a certified Thai Yoga Massage practitioner who performs her sessions with a spirit and touch of compassion, harmony, peace, gratitude and wisdom.
Three Blessings Retreats for Women
Back in 2015, in celebration of 5 years of breast cancer survival, Ellen created a series of Yoga Retreats for Women. The retreats began as 1/2 day, mini-get-aways that offered morning mediation, gentle yoga, healthful eating demo/lunch, restorative therapies, and a mindful closing. Highly memorable retreats also included full weekends for groups of women to refresh and rejuvenate.
Having newly built Three Blessings Yoga Farm and Wellness Center in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, its gorgeous landscape and Yoga Pavilion adjacent to a beautiful lake, provide Retreat attendees a serene environment in which to unwind, refresh, and head home with a renewed sense of Zen energy.
