November 15th: Health in Your Hands

The hands are a complex microsystem representing the entire body, mind and spirit. Learn about this and how to clear blockages and unleash the innate healing powers of the body with Mudras, classical hand gestures that stimulate acupoints and invigorate channels carrying the energy of life. Discover some valuable first aid tips for back and neck pain and even a potential life saver!

Autumn is the season of transformation. As the weather changes the seasonal shift impacts our daily rhythms. We become subjected to all manner of unexpected illnesses and stress brought on by lifeʼs bouncing rhythms. With the right kind of awareness in action, we can find balance and prevent illness.

This trilogy of workshops will provide you with skills that will help prevent illness and cultivate optimal health in body, heart and mind through simple and effective methods that are easy and fun to learn. You will be introduced to Traditional Chinese Medicine and a gentle range of yoga techniques to promote wellness and relaxation and to help you navigate through seasonal fluctuations mindfully. It is important that we change with the seasons, just as nature does, by adapting our daily habits.

Join for one class or participate in all three!

This workshop is led by Cleo Wolf, an acupuncturist, herbalist, and a NCCAOM Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, and Lauren Lauzier, a certified yoga teacher. Both Cleo and Lauren are a part of the Jade Integrated Health staff.
