Community – BlissBlissBliss Membership Massage and Yoga in Morgantown, WV Thu, 14 Jan 2021 16:26:34 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Community – BlissBlissBliss 32 32 How To Use Your Gift Certificate Fri, 25 Dec 2020 22:08:10 +0000 By Elizabeth Halliday-Reynolds

Did you get a Bliss Gift Certificate? What a beautiful way to start  the new year off!

We love it! We might be just as excited as you.

While our certificates never expire, we are going to encourage you to not hold off from scheduling your bliss. Imagine how relaxation moves through your body and creates space for calmer interactions with others. Imagine the transformation that starts within, just by feeling good.

We want to give a quick tour on how to use that gift certificate.

  • If you got a pdf version of your gift certificate, the bar code has a number on it that can be used in replace of booking with a credit card. If you got one of our in-house versions, you might see that number hand written on the back.
  • Know that if you loose your certificate we can find it in our database. It will be in your name and cross referenced from the name of the person who purchased it for you. If they made it out to “Mom”, we can still find it sorted by their name.
  • If you just want to call and book by talking with a real a person, I do answer all voice mails. Leave me a message here (304-413- 0270). If you call from a cell phone, our robot will try and help you book until I get to you. You can type “speak to a receptionist” and I will get to your message as soon as I can.
  • Sometimes people are not sure which service is best for them. Give me a call, I am happy to listen to what you need, what you love and find the best fit.

Our booking site sorts our services like so:

Consultation | Events | Intuitive Services | Massages | Spa | Therapy | Wellness or Integrative | Yoga

You can follow each category to find the service you would love to book and then book that way.

If you want a different view to navigate, try this one that might be better optimized for browsing from the cell phone.

Know that we just are not set up for drop in. While you might find a same day massage or bodywork appointment, the best option is to plan ahead

THANK YOU for supporting our collective of small bliss businesses. While it may look a big facility, we are really a bunch of heart centered skilled professional yoga teachers, massage therapists and bodyworkers. We each individually set our own hours and work together to make the bliss space warm, inviting and homey enough for you to find the space to flow and transform.

Unlike most larger businesses in our industry, we do not have reception. We prefer to make lasting relationships with you and each of us support the bliss shop before and after our sessions. I am happy to schedule a bliss shop visit for you to come in and browse at your leisure.

Being in Bliss is extraordinary and we all believe that you deserve this!

We can’t wait to see you soon.



What is in the Bliss Shop: Crystals, Incense, DoTERRA essential oils, DIY supplies, face and body care items, Faire trade textiles from Hilos_co, Hand poured candles, Grid cloths, Inspirational decks, yoga props and supplies, cards, journals and more. We try to fill our shop with relaxation inducing goods from makers who are USA made and small batch. We are not big box, but our prices are fair and represent a deep support of our community. 

How to arrange virtual shopping and curbside pick up? Leave me a message by calling 304-413-0270 or send us an e-mail at Since I am a working massage therapist and yoga teacher who also sees clients, I do not keep shop hours but I do answer all messages left for us.

Oneness Of Mind : Body : Spirit – Oracle Reading 101 Thu, 24 Dec 2020 17:11:07 +0000 By Elizabeth Halliday-Reynolds
Life can feel so separated. We go to work, we try and manage our life. We take care of our people.
Sometimes and for many, it feels like all the time, the taking care of “the self” takes the back burner. Then when we finally do have some time to go within, we are not sure where to start. Or we feel as if the path toward our higher selves and our purpose is blocked by the stresses of the everyday.
Every new years day, I hole up in quiet corner of the house (my bed room), open the curtains to let the light filter in, light a candle, burn some incense and do an oracle card reading for myself centered on the year ahead. I write notes about each card drawn, factor in the reading placement and let the message unravel from unconscious to conscious. The cards help bring forward intuitive guidance in a tangible way. These oracle readings never fail at bringing hope and excitement for the year ahead. The reading is always a reminder of what to prepare for and how to be in grace for the transformation of the self ahead. There are many types of oracle spreads. In this class, Sarah and I teamed up to go over a few spreads that are great ways to get started with your personal oracle card reading journey. We are excited to hear about your empowered intuition development. We can’t wait to see you!

Oracle cards offer valuable intuitive insights and can really help create the oneness of Mind : Body : Spirit.

In this class Sarah and I will guide you through some common oracle card questions. How to get to know your deck, setting intentions for your reading, and understanding open ended vs. direct questions. We will have time to go through two spreads that give you the best results. Bring your favorite deck (we are going to gift you one as part of your class fee).
Price: $66
Date: 2/27/21
Time: 12:30-2:30
Note: Class limited to a socially distanced 6. If an -in person- class is not for you, contact to request a  zoom class with you and a friend.

Full Moon Gathering At Bliss Wed, 11 Nov 2020 12:10:18 +0000 By Sarah Smith

Come to a Full Moon gathering!

We all agree that the Full Moon has some sort of strange power over us. Full Moons amplify our emotions and it is not uncommon to feel a heightened sense of energy, both positive and negative during this time. They occur when the opposing signs of the moon and the sun are directly opposite one another. The alignment of these two opposing signs creates a palpable energy that gives way to powerful transitions, acceptance and letting go.

The Full Moon is a time of transformation and change. During the full moon, our emotions rise to help us tune in deeply and notice where we are at. Emotions and intuitions are heightened so that we can reflect upon what we have been focusing on and how that focus came to play out during the month. While the new moon is the opportunity to map out our goals and set intentions behind our desires, the full moon is a time of looking back, feeling into what is and from there using ceremony to wipe the slate clean and begin anew.

Full moons are a great time for release… letting go of what does not serve our higher purpose. When we meet in circle, this creates an energetic “spider web” of support for all in that “web.”

Bring a journal or paper, a favorite essential oil or crystal and an open heart and mind. I look forward to offering a special teaching just for this full moon. – Sarah

A Full Moon gathering is an age-old tradition that dates back to a time when we lived by & honored the earth’s natural rhythms. It’s one of Sarah Smith’s personal goals to bring these traditions back to our communities and circles – it’s powerful medicine! This is a special invite for our community – both women and men – of like-mind. We invite you to spend an evening honoring the support and connection with one another. Note: Be sure to check class times on the calendar.

Crystals For Your Chakras Sat, 03 Oct 2020 11:56:11 +0000 One way to connect deeper with the chakra system is to learn about the archetypes that get manifested as we move through our lives.
As we unfold to rise up we can turn to crystals and their gentle energy to remind us that these archetypes are a process we all go through on many levels as we embrace our personal hero’s journey.

In this class we learn about the 7 main chakras, the dual archetypes of each chakra and the crystals that support each chakra with a specific focus on the archetype. Bonus material includes some crystals that can bridge the energy between chakras to help create a synergistic whole.

Come embrace your hero self and delight in another aspect of your crystal life.
Price: $15
Date: 10/10/20
Time: 12:30

Note: Class limited to a socially distanced 8. If an in person class is not for you, contact to request a live zoom or a pre-recorded video class.

Hero Story! Featuring Chin From Corporate Cleaning Mon, 21 Sep 2020 19:32:35 +0000 By Elizabeth Halliday-Reynolds

About a year ago, during a quiet afternoon, the water pipes burst in the upstairs bathroom and within seconds our bathroom and hall were flooded! Yes flooded!

I had heard the un-natural sound of water gushing, so had run upstairs to investigate. Within 2 minutes I had the water shut off and had begun to grab every towel I could find to soak up inches of water everywhere! Let me tell you, Water is enthusiastic when it gets out on its own. No sooner had it hit home that our upstairs carpets were drenched even spreading into the surrounding treatment rooms, did I also realize that the water was finding its way through the floor joists into the downstairs hall way and gushing through the downstairs yoga room air vents.

Realizing towels were not going to be the solution we’d need, I put in a frantic call into a few friends for help. With the water in that bathroom off, the plumber could wait until the next day, but water damage! That cannot wait.

Enter my hero Chin and his fantastic team from Corporate Cleaning.

By 7pm that night I had clean carpets and could rest well, knowing that I was not going to have expensive repairs ahead of me. To this day, I cannot believe my good fortune to have Chin and his team arrive so quickly and take are of us.

CHIN is my HERO! He just might be your hero too.

Last week, Chin reached out to me and said he wanted to gift 5 new members to bliss with a complete car detailing service! What a treat for you! His team is so flexible too! Last spring, he had his team work on my car while I was at work at bliss! What a LOT OF HAPPY that was. I mean my is known to have some dirty little stories to tell. I am sure they found a 3 year old french fry. Suffice it to say, they did an amazing job.

We only have 5 of these so purchase your membership here so that I can share my hero Chin with you with his wonderful gift of a FREE complete car detail.

Forgot Your Yoga Mat? Sun, 16 Aug 2020 14:28:06 +0000 Like you, we are all trying to find the “silver lining” of living, working, exercising and de-stressing during a global pandemic. We have taken steps to amp up our cleaning (never a bad thing), switch to a “bring your own props” model, and limit the class size (social distancing blah, blah, blah).  There are great benefits to each of these, but then as you drive to the studio, you remember that you have forgotten your mat.

You need yoga! We know that! Now more than ever.

We are offering prop rental for $7. With this fee we can offer you strap, blanket and mat. These are items that we can launder after every use to ensure cleanliness. We also offer props for sale in the Bliss Shop.
