Natural Living with Plant Based Products

$49

with Addie Joslyn

Calendar Oct 3, 2017 at 6 pm, runs for 4 weeks

We strive to live a natural and healthy lifestyle, but some of the most dangerous toxic chemicals are things we put in or on our body daily not even realizing it! Companies can call products “Green” or “Natural” but hide harmful ingredients under the word Fragrance. Since these companies have limited regulation, they get away with what is called “Green Washing”.

In this class we will explore some of those toxic ingredients, learn easy affordable DIY recipes for the home, and jump into the world of essential oils and plant based products. We will cover the basics of essential oils, usage safety, quality and more.

Be ready to get hands on with DIY oil infused products! Come to this fun, relaxed class and learn how to ditch the toxic chemicals and replace them with a healthy alternative. There is an optional $5 materials fee per DIY item in class.

Amber Beck is a work from home mom of two girls. Her journey with essential oils began six years ago as an effort to remove as many toxic products from her home for a safe environment for her family. Addie Joslyn is a stay at home mom of two boys. Her boys were the motivation to start living naturally and holistically by incorporating essential oils into daily life.

Proper Movement, Proper Alignment: Introduction to Japanese Movement Therapy and Structural Acupuncture

$24

with Tobey Williamson

Calendar Nov 9, 2017 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Sotai Ho is a movement therapy that uses simple movements and breath work to release muscular restrictions and bring the body back into alignment with its natural gravitational center. It was developed in Japan in the 1950’s by Dr. Keizo Hashimoto, M.D So means “to manipulate,” tai means “body,” and ho means “method.” You can heal yourself with Sotai Ho. Dr. Hashimoto found the easiest way to release restrictions in our soft tissue was to listen to the body’s own wisdom to avoid pain and move into the direction of ease. Movements and stretching seek to emulate our animal friends – stretching like a dog or cat might, looking for ways to move that make our body FEEL GOOD! And when this movement is coordinated with our breath, the body quickly adjusts and falls back into its natural aligned state. In this introductory class, we will work together to find the specific Sotai movements you can do at home. These exercises can help break old patterns and keep you in your body’s natural gravitational center. “To treat a patient for an illness without correcting distortion in their frame is like bailing water with a bottomless bucket.” – Dr. Keizo Hashimoto
