Meet Letha Sandison and Courtney Mars of Four Moons

Today we’d like to introduce you to Letha Sandison, Courtney Mars.

Courtney and Letha had both been living abroad, Courtney in Bali and Letha in Africa.

They returned to Encinitas at about the same time and were each looking for their next project. They met at a New Moon Gathering and quickly discovered a shared passion for travel, community, health and wellness and creating beautiful spaces.

They started with a small boutique and event space and within a few short months were presented with the opportunity to expand into the entire property where their space was located. This led to the development of Four Moons. “We have been in business for just under a year and it has been a wonderful ride,” said Co-Founder Letha Sandison. “We have been honored to host many top wellness experts from around the country for special events as well as hosting our own regular programming”.

Four Moons offers classes in; yoga, belly dancing, drumming, space clearing, sound healing, crystals, medical medium readings, breath work and much more. “We have been blessed with some of the most talented massage therapists, estheticians and nail techs out there says” Co-Founder Courtney Mars. While we are still very much in the start-up phase we have a clear vision of where we are going and a passion for creating unique offerings in this special place to share with our community.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has been very much like riding a rocket! We launched just under a year ago and have expanded very quickly which has presented challenges. Like any new business balancing growth with resource management has been a little tricky.

We have a fantastic group of healers working with us. We have wonderful yoga teachers, massage therapists, estheticians, Naturopathic Doctors, acupuncturist and workshop leaders are trying to get the word out within our community that we are here and ready to be of service. As a new and hidden spot, we are hoping to get the word out to the community that our new and special space is here and to come in and see us.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Four Moons – what should we know?
