After many years serving clients in the Adirondacks, Cheerful Strength has relocated to the Putnam Valley, where it will offer its holistic support services and workshops to individuals, organizations and businesses in Duchess, Putnam, Westchester, Ulster, Orange and Rockland Counties, as well as New York City, Long Island and western Connecticut. “We bring a mindful, grounded approach to organizing, clutter busting, solution mapping, meeting facilitation, team building, project development and strategic planning,” says owner and guide Hilary Oak.

Oak has more than 15 years’ experience working with community groups, nonprofit organizations, artists, musicians and other individuals to develop and implement strategies to meet their goals. She also offers training and workshops in meditation, grounding and relaxation techniques. Upcoming workshops will focus on jump-starting creativity, organizing basics and meeting facilitation.

Cheerful Strength will offer a series of Dance Meditation gatherings this summer. “This is a dance group for folks who don’t want to memorize steps, and it’s a meditation group for folks who can’t sit still,” Oak says. “It’s a time to stretch, breathe, move and find your groove for the day.” Dates and details will be available this spring for workshops and dance gatherings in Beacon, Fishkill, Cold Spring and Peekskill.
