The Rise Well-Being Center is holding a three-day grand-opening event starting Thursday.
Rise, a studio for yoga and meditation that offers immersion into natural elements for well-being, will be holding a ribbon cutting ceremony starting at 11 a.m. on Thursday at 11130 Sunrise Valley Drive, Suite 150.
Throughout the three-day opening, Rise is accepting $5 donations to its Well-Being Fund in exchange for unlimited access to classes for one day. The Lunch n’ Learns will cost another $5 as well as the mini One on One sessions. The Well-Being Fund will provide scholarships to those who cannot afford memberships as well as pay for “days of pampering” for those using local shelters and non-profits, saidLisa Goodwin, founder and owner of Rise.
Following the ceremony, classes will be offered in the studio until 7:30 p.m. on Thursday. That same day there will also be a Lunch n’ Learn by James R. Jones entitled “Body Wisdom” where he will discuss quick and easy techniques that help people feel energized throughout the day.
On March 2 (Friday), more classes will be held from 7:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. and another Lunch n’ Learn will be featured. Friday’s Lunch n’ Learn is entitled “Enhancing Leadership Through Mindfulness” and is held by Moira Lethbridge, an executive coach and former CEO.
The final day on Saturday will feature another full day of classes from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. where guests can also schedule mini one-on-one sessions. Later guests can take part in a “Special Sacred Heart Sound Healing” event starting at 6:30 p.m.
Rise came about because Goodwin saw a need for busy Washingtonians to connect with nature and feel better. The center took three years to come about, Goodwin said.
“I’m most excited about people to come in and experience the environment of the intentionally created space,” she said.
The center will also be holding pre-opening discounts where guests can purchase a one-month membership for $135, a three-month membership for $297 and six-month membership for $699.
