         Becky Jordan,  Ayurveda 101:   Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest holistic whole-body healing systems that has been gaining popularity in the West in recent years. Recognizing that we are all different, Ayurveda, (the healing system of yoga) incorporates nutrition, lifestyle, exercise, remedies, and routines that are designed for our specific constitution. By realizing more about ourselves, we learn to live more aligned with nature and  we experience greater health and well-being.  Handouts and a test to help determine your specific constitution are included in this session.

       Amy Anton, Cooking Class:  All Vegetables all the Time! In this hands on class, we will work on chopping skills while preparing lots of different vegetables in some new and novel ways. We will be working with beets, carrots, celery, broccoli, fennel, cauliflower and whatever else I can find  to up your veggie game. This class is Whole30 and can easily be gluten-free.

       *Amanda Jones, Functional Medicine Approaches to Preventing Cognitive Decline: Neurogenerative disorders are on the rise – with diagnoses of mild cognitive impairment to dementia increasing with our aging population. Science is showing that brain changes often begin in our 30s or 40s and that lifestyle and diet remain the greatest hope in slowing, preventing, or even reversing some of these brain changes. Whether you are concerned that your own memory is starting to slip, you are a caregiver for a loved one with cognitive decline, or you have been told you are at high familial risk – this workshop is for you. Amanda Jones, MS Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine will help you understand the very basics of brain health, where things go wrong, what the current medical and diet/lifestyle research has to tell us, and how to leverage key lifestyle factors to protect our brains and ensure cognitive longevity and quality of life in aging.

      *Mary Lancaster, The Energetics of Health: When we think of health our mind automatically goes to the body, or our physical health. When in reality there are many facets one must consider when seeking profound and complete healing; the mind (mental aspect), body (physical aspect), and spirit (emotional aspect). In this presentation we will discover how all three of these aspects work together in harmony, and how we can achieve optimal health results when we address all levels of the human experience.

     * Robert Copeland, Off-Grid, Organic, and Old School: Robert looks forward to giving the attendees a look at where they can find clean food, his farm to table options, and why small farms need their business, and why they need small farmers for wellness. Also, how he is able to raise crops and livestock without harmful toxic chemicals, and how people can shop directly with farmers  thru CoOps, farmers markets, and farm stands.

Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach® which treats the entire myofascial complex eliminating the pressure caused by the restricted myofascial system (the straightjacket) that creates the symptoms. We treat patients from all over the world with Myofascial Release when medicine, surgery, traditional therapy or massage did not produce the desired results.

     Leila-Scott Price, Self-Care is Healthcare:  Chinese Medicine theory is deeply rooted in an understanding of how nature works. How does this apply to people? Why does this make Chinese Medicine a valid, holistic system of medicine with sage advice for us regarding wellness, illness recovery, and longevity? Very simply, we humans are not just spectators of nature – we are 100% part of nature. Our modern day lifestyle offers us many comforts and conveniences that, as great as they are, remove us from our connection to the universe around us. As a result, we have forgotten that we
are not exempt from the laws of nature. In fact, they very much apply to us.
Come learn and discuss some ways to apply these theories to your life and why they can be so helpful in helping us both emotionally and physically.
