Find Peace and Wellness at Evergreen, A Center for Balanced Living
Hard to find…easy to love! Easton is well-known as a magnet for art, culture, fine restaurants and boutiques, but not so far from the main drag is a unique wellness center that offers peace and quiet and is well worth a visit!
You probably won’t find yourself happening on the Evergreen Center for Balanced Living by chance when you’re out for a stroll…it’s too secluded for that, but at only five minutes from the downtown and seconds from Rt 322 (known among locals as the “bypass”), it’s easily accessible to all. Drive down Port Street headed away from town, and you’ll find the Evergreen sign on your left. Snake along the driveway till you see a small building nestled among the trees. That building is the heart of Evergreen. Park in front or to the side–parking areas are grouped into small clusters and surrounded by trees to be as unobtrusive as possible. Listen to the birds and the squirrels, watch the sunlight filter through the leaves and sparkle on the water beyond. Leave your stress behind; you have arrived at Evergreen!
Evergreen’s main building features a large central room with a skylight and generous windows that afford a view of the waterfront. This is the classroom for yoga and other group exercise classes as well as a variety of special workshops. To either side of the main room are small private offices for acupuncture, massage and other kinds of therapy. The building also features a lending library of books focused on physical, mental and spiritual health. The wooded area behind Evergreen offers picnic tables for a peaceful meal and a small labyrinth for quiet contemplation. Evergreen is a place where members come to learn, grow, and “be.” As Linda Evans, Evergreen’s new Executive Director, puts it: “There is an intuitive language used at Evergreen, which is a language of healing for body, mind, and spirit.” Health professionals are becoming more and more aware of the benefits of stress reduction. Signing up for a class at Evergreen might be just the ticket to peace you were looking for.
