Saturday, April 9th
Presenter: Lizz Roman
Roman will introduce the theory of muscular imbalance as a way to detect movement patterns resulting in poor body dynamics that could eventually lead to musculoskeletal injuries. We will actively explore how bodies move, with a focus on developmental milestones and common movement/posture imbalances. We will discover simple applications for applying this theory to activities of daily life, as well as exercise and rehabilitation. Come prepared to move, no movement training required. All you need is your body and a healthy dose of curiosity!
Physical Risk-Taking in Play: Try This at Home!
Presenters: Frank Duhl
Children learn by taking risks: physical risks, cognitive risks, and social risks. When there is no risk, there is no learning. In this workshop we will discuss and demonstrate the value of allowing toddlers the illusion of physical risk.
Sunday, April 10th
Two shorter workshops and lunch, followed by a sliding-scale wellness fair.
The Spine: a 3-D triaxial wave
Presenter: Nuria Bowart
This presentation will look at how the spine bends and waves. We will experience the tendency of the spine to turn flexion and extension into undulation around three constantly moving axis of rotation. A healthy spine is mobile and stable. Understanding the biomechanics of the spine gives healthy options for movement.
Nutrition: Nourishing, Simple Recipes
Presenter: Tammy Chang
It's hard for busy parents and teachers to find the time to eat well! Holistic nutrition coach Tammy Chang will share some simple nourishing recipes that she uses for herself and for her clients that provide true nourishment, yet are simple and easy to make!

Together we'll assess your immune function from a holistic perspective, and I'll share my suggestions for the best care of your immune system and well-being. I specialize in helping people heal from chronic illness including autoimmune disease and allergy. This includes ADD, ADHD and autism syndrome issues, as well as problems following negative reactions to vaccines. You may use this session for yourself or to discuss the immune health of your child.
Homeoprophylaxis is a homeopathic alternative to vaccinations, which helps the immune system to develop in a safe and healthy way. You may use all or part of your session with me to discuss this option for your family.
For families choosing or required to vaccinate, as HP practitioner I can guide you in the use of homeopathy to reduce the risk of vaccines, to detox harmful ingredients, and to help heal from negative reactions, without lessening the desired immune response.

WellnessAlchemy session is an intuitive healing done by laying down on a massage table, using aromatherapy & the activation of main centers of energy and Chi lines in your body. By doing a clairvoyant body scan – we'll identifying both spiritual and physical blockages that create disease. Dis-ease is blockage - by clearing the blockage allowing the energy to flow, the body’s natural vitality will want to move the body to a more natural state of wellness.
Scanning all 16 basic systems of the body, “seeing” into the body’s inner workings and where wellness is manifesting and where these systems are out of balance. The WellnessAlchemy healing helps remove blockages to bring your body systems into balance. We work with the cells, the tissues and the life force found within each cell to unleash your body’s natural healing ability.
