September 2013 Newsletter

It has been a crazy whirlwind since I have been back! Liz from Greenville Yoga and I have been working very hard to put together our events for the month of September on Forgiveness. This is going to be a fabulous month of learning, cleansing and renewal.

My new website is almost ready!

And speaking of renewal, my new website launches this week! We were hoping to go live before sending this newsletter out, but we’re taking a few extra days just to make sure everything is perfect before sharing it with the world. I’ll announce the launch on Facebook, so keep your eyes peeled. It’s so awesome and beautiful, I can’t wait!

(And don’t forget to be checking Facebook or our Gift Certificate page this week for our 10 Days of Celebration Anniversary Sale!)

Let us know what you think of the website in a few days and if there’s something missing that you think we should add. I always love to hear about articles or videos that you have come across in regards to waxing, skincare, or health and beauty in general so please be sure to share.

 September is the month of Forgiveness
– and our 10 year anniversary!

Over the last few months I have been doing research on forgiveness and what it means and why you should forgive someone. I have learned a lot and I still have a lot more to learn and to practice.

Join us the month of September to explore the theme of forgiveness and what it really means. I hope that you will be able to attend one, some, or all of the events we are hosting and please share this information with your friends and family. Thank you!

Events will be held at Greenville Yoga’s Augusta Road location unless stated otherwise.
With grateful hearts,
~ Nicole Martin of Raspberry Moon & The Greenville Yoga family
