This workshop will combine the wellness practices of Josie Heck (Yoga Off the Square) and Megan Murphy (Backyard Beauty) to offer a personalized approach of maintaining balance and health in one’s physical body. Practicing yoga to connect with one’s body and learning the properties of plants that are best suited for our individual self-care practices can significantly increase one’s ability to take care of themselves. Participants will be introduced to a Traditional Chinese Medicine approach to maintaining wellness and will determine their individual constitution so that they can seasonally select foods (and flowers) that best serve their body.This workshop is part of a workshop series that promotes self-empowered, seasonal wellness of the body, mind, and spirit. More info & registration to come.
