Restorative Yoga & Massage: A Total Relaxation Experience with Carrie Dennison, Drew Rudell (RMP) and Melissa Hernandez (LMT)


Tension and stress - a reality to most of our lives. Stress stays with us, locked up in our emotional and physical bodies with one effecting the other all the time. This practice offers an opportunity to positively impact both bodies!

In this workshop, Carrie Dennison will guide participants through a series of long-held restorative postures supported with bolsters, blankets, and all things comfy. Sinking into breath and body, you’ll find peace and an overall sense of relaxation.


To compliment your Restorative Yoga practice, everyone will also get a 20 minute chair massage offered by massage therapists Andrew Rudell, RMP and Melissa Hernandez, LMT. Massage has profound effects on stress by relaxing tight and locked muscles and allowing the body to move with less restriction.


Carrie’s love of yoga fostered from a need for balance in her life after struggling with anxiety from a high-pressure corporate job. With a strong desire to support others in finding peace in this crazy world, she earned her 200-hour RYT training at Ananda Shala in Frederick, MD. After discovering the importance of rest and stillness to complement a busy life and active yoga practice, she was drawn to incorporate restorative yoga in her practice and teaching. She studied Restorative Yoga under Tara Lemerise ('Rest for All' Teacher Training). Carrie earned her level 3 Reiki Master certification in 2019 and utilizes the therapeutic benefits of doTERRA essential oils in her classes. Carrie's goal is to assist others to learn about different tools to support healing and stress management and build integrated community.


Melissa’s approach to wellness encourages an all-inclusive focus on the mind, body and spirit with an emphasis placed on emotional release and spiritual embodiment. She is dedicated to helping people of all ages and cultures improve their quality of life. “All bodies deserve judgment-free, safe opportunities in which to receive healing.” Melissa provides each client with a welcoming space while creating an awareness of alternative healing services and resources, inspiring individuals to discover their potential for maximum health. These transformations are encouraged though Massage therapy, Reiki healing, spiritual coaching and intuitive wellness strategies.


Andrew Rudell strives to create a relaxing and comforting environment for his clients. Understanding that working people seek massage for a variety of reasons, Andrew incorporates both deep tissue and therapeutic aspects into his practice.
