Bachelorette Party Goddess Circle

Are you excited to plan your soul sister’s bachelorette party but penis hats and tequila shots are not exactly up your alley. Or you want to do a birthday party or baby shower!?

Well, I suggest you try something different. Something a little more intimate, magical, and meaningful.

Having a custom Goddess Circles as a bridal blessing, birthday party, or baby shower is a great way to celebrate your beloved soul sister a little differently. These events are  are specifically customized and curated for 8 – 20 women. They can be hosted at Gigi Yogini studio or at a location of your choosing.

What’s included:

  • 30 min Snacks & Non-Alcoholic Beverages
  • Access to temporary tattoos, jewelry, costume, and more
  • 60 min Goddess Circle Ceremony
  • 60 min Decompression
  • Total 2.5 hour curated event

Optional Additions:

  • Full meal with Private Chef (offering mostly organic, seasonal dishes)
  • Creative activities (flower crowns, sage bundle, music circle, yoga, blessing, dance, etc.)
  • Service providers (massage therapist, henna painting, goddess card readings, etc.)
  • Gift bags with custom goddess essentials (mala, crystal, sage, essential oil, cards, lotion, etc.)

Studio Wish List

At my studio, a few of my events are by donation. FYI friends…

*BY DONATION* does not mean free.

In the spirit of abundance, the suggested donation is $20 but other donations are also welcome. Some people give more (I’ve found $100 bills in my donation box), some people give less (I also find wads of $1 bills). Some people bring food to the circle (fruits, veggies, nuts, chocolate, etc). Other bring gifts for the space (see suggestions below).

I have loved receiving the variety of beautiful gifts and because people have things I no longer need in their lives, and I have a lot of space to fill, I have created a wish list. Cash is not the only form of payment I am willing to receive. I’m happy to receive other valuable goods. And by *VALUABLE* I mean things that can improve the experience of the circle or the space.

This wish list includes but is not limited to:

– fruit, nuts, chocolate, energy bars
– hanging plants / ivy
– succulents / cactus
– candles & nagchampa incense
– beautiful pillows
– clean baby toys, clothes, books
– musical instruments
– crystals, stones, feathers
– wood carvings, mirrors
– fabrics, tribal rugs
– wooden bowls, straw baskets
– mugs, glasses, dishes
– coffee, tea, beverages
– hangers, organization supplies, storage
– first aid equipment, feminine supplies
– canvases, art n’ craft supplies
– picture frames, artwork
– bathroom or kitchen towels
– soaps, lotions, essential oils

Family Rhythm Circles

When I was in kindergarten, my class went onto public television to announce what we wanted to be when we grew up. We were the high school graduating class of 2000 & that felt like a big deal. My classmates wanted to be professional baseball players, lawyers, newscasters & Olympians. But me? I wanted to be “an artist & housewife.”

Hah!

As you can imagine, I got lots of giggles & snickers from the audience but fast forward 30 years, guess what!?

I’m a yoga instructor, musician, writer & studio owner who gets to decide her own hours & schedule. I get to split my week between work & family, plus I can bring my babies to work! While the label of “housewife” is antiquated (and let’s be honest, it takes a small army to handle our domestic responsibilities), I think what I was tying to convey in 1987 were my core values of community & creativity.

With creativity & community in mind, starting 7/11 we’re offering an 11:30am family rhythm circle at my studio for 6 weeks. All ages welcome.

Dance to the Rhythm of Your Own Drum

Join the circle. Grab a drum or shaker & sing your little heart out.

We sing all the classics: Twinkle Twinkle, Old McDonald, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Marley & much, much more…

Bring your lunch or buy a snack.

Minimum $10 per family (pre-registration required)

What women have said about circles…

“The women’s circle is a beautiful thing. It’s a safe space where we can all share the good and the scary without judgement. We laugh, we cry, we feel empowered and supported by these strong souls, and ready to take on anything.” – Ginger P.

“What a beautiful reminder that we’re not in it alone. A guaranteed highlight to any week.” – Tonya G.
