Learn about a forthcoming wellness retreat that aims to help people improve their mind, body and soul.
Ever wish you could get away from the hustle and bustle of life and work on you for a bit? The forthcoming Tanya’s Wellness Farm and Spa may be just what you’re looking for.
“The farm/spa is going to be a holistic wellness approach to help those suffering from depression and anxiety,” says owner Tanya Tieman Equine, who is also the owner of Tanya’s Wellness & Image Salon on Hyde Park Square. “Tanya’s Wellness Farm and Spa is a 501c3 nonprofit that is currently raising funds to get the rest of the down payment for a loan to build the infrastructure.”
The farm will be used for a variety of methods to help with depression and anxiety, including yoga, guided meditation, Equine Assisted Coaching, and even fora facial massage, wigs, weddings, or if you just want to experience nature. “We will have a coffee shop with healthy snacks and smoothies for those that want to come and relax awhile,” Equine adds.
While the facility is still in the planning phases and hasn’t been built yet, those interested in supporting the concept can go to the website to make donations. “We don’t want to have to always be asking for money for the nonprofit, so our goal is to have a for-profit part of the farm for corporate events, team building and weddings,” she says. ”This can help fund the upkeep of the animals and the land itself.”
Equine says Tanya’s Wellness Farm and Spa is important for the community because there are so many people dealing with depression, stress and anxiety. “We can teach our community to unplug, get back to nature and learn strategies to help reduce stress, anxiety and depression,” she explains. “The end result will be happier people, better relationships, less loneliness and less drug and alcohol abuse.”
When people attend Tanya’s Wellness Farm and Spa, Equine wants people to forget the stress of their busy lives and reconnect with their real selves. She refers to this as a ‘retreat project.’ “I have sold my rental property to raise capital for this project, but we need more funds to get it going,” she says.
