    Come and learn about the body’s microbiome and how it affects us in this 4-week workshop series. Gut microbiome refers to the billions of live bacteria, viruses & fungi in the human gut. Participants will learn about what it is and why it’s important to our overall health and wellness. Students will participate in wellness activities that will guide them to connect intuitively to their bodies and understand how that will help achieve and maintain wellness.  There will be a self-evaluation at the beginning and end of the workshop.  Each student will receive a journal that they will use to track their progress.

    Come learn about CranioSacral Therapy (CST), a very gentle hands-on therapy that helps relieves pain and tension in the central nervous system and thus the whole body.  This holistic therapy works with the whole body and its natural healing processes so you get to the root of the issue, instead of masking symptoms. CranioSacral Therapy helps release both physical and emotional stress and trauma from the body. You will learn the basic principles of CST, how to find a provider, and how many people are living healthier lives due to its benefits!

    Bring a sack lunch if you like. Water, coffee & tea will be available.
