Ellen created a series of Yoga Retreats for the Third Ward Zen community network in 2015, in celebration of 5 years of breast cancer survival. There have been 1/2 day retreats (mini-get-aways) offered with morning mediation, gentle yoga, healthful eating demo/lunch, restorative therapies, and mindful closing. Highly memorable retreats also included full weekends for groups of women to refresh and rejuvenate.
In 2018 Ellen took a hiatus from conducting retreats and began teaching Gentle Yoga at work once a week— interchanging with a colleague who conducted Guided Meditation.
During this time period, Ellen also purchased a property that she is currently developing into Three Blessings Yoga Farm & Wellness Center.
It is scheduled to open in 2021 and will be a special place for wellness retreats in the heart of the Mississippi Delta.
