Since I first began to think of offering trainings in St. Augustine (my home since 2003), I always wanted the reflexology certification and my weekend workshops to be more than just an opportunity to learn and earn continuing education credits. I wanted to offer my programs in a unique residential retreat, where participants would have the opportunity to relax, rejuvenate and play in the country’s oldest city and its beaches. It took some time, but I finally found the perfect spot!
The Hideaway at Eve’s Web is a charming “old Florida” structure nestled amongst one of the last remaining authentic coastal martime oak hammocks in northern Florida. This cozy vacation retreat was inspired by the spider’s web – a symbol for the balance that allows us to walk life’s silken threads with ease.
I love the casual atmosphere of conducting classes in the comfy living room – feels like we’re all just sitting around at home! The bright and fully-equipped kitchen allows us to keep organic teas and coffee brewing all day: healthy snacks and meals readily available. Small classes and the intimacy that that allows make both learning and friendships easy.
Of course, a residential retreat would not be residential without a place to sleep! For those wanting to combine their accommodation with the study location, two unique bedrooms with queen beds are available when attending classes. The upstairs Tree House offers three more sleeping arrangements. A custom-tiled screened-in outdoor hot-tub and the beach just three blocks away guarantee some serious hydrotherapy!
