  • 10 items of non-perishable food;
  • $10 (or more);
  • To spread the word to 10 friends and neighbors;
  • To do it all in 10 days.

Because we always seek to “ease the path from intent to action,” easy access to collection sites is imperative. Along with the usual grocery stores, we want ‘em in every neighborhood.

Experience a profoundly relaxing aquatic movement therapy that combines gentle stretching, acupressure, and Shiatsu massage while being floated in the warm waters of our Infinity-Edge pool overlooking the Napa Valley.  Watsu uses the lightness of the body in water to free the spinal vertebrae, rotate joint articulations and elongate muscles. Your therapist will guide you through rhythmic, “dance-like” movements performed in harmony with breathing patterns to inspire the natural regeneration of the body and mind.
