INTRODUCTORY BLOCK THERAPY™ CLASS NEW !

Send To Friend?

Instructor: Joanne Holt

Block Therapy is done lying down on a yoga mat as you relax and breathe using your diaphragm enabling you to work through scar tissue. This therapy is excellent for anxiety, depression, pain and headaches. A cedar Block Buddy™ and other equipment are provided for the class.

There are three parts to the Block Therapy classes:

  1. Core & Back –Release the compressed tissue in your stomach and rib cage to get deeper access to the diaphragm muscle. This helps benefit all the systems in the body with better functioning of the diaphragm which dramatically increases oxygenation to the cells and the abdominal organs. Heart and lungs receive improved blood and energy flow allowing the body to function more efficiently as a whole. This class wraps up with some amazing back positions.
  2. Pelvis & Legs –Melt the compressed tissue in your pelvis and legs and improve circulation to your organs of reproduction. It all benefits muscle function and improves the appearance of tissue.
  3. Head, Neck and Arms – Melt the compressed tissue in your upper body, arms, neck and face. This improves muscle function and tissue appearance and realigns the head taking pressure away from the upper back and neck. Increased circulation benefits all the structures in the area, including the brain, hair, eyes and thyroid gland. This provides an improvement in the quality and appearance of your skin.

Instructor: Chef Jerome Castro

Learn how to make your very own Bath Oils and Bath bombs in this hands-on class. Perfect to give as gifts to others or yourself! Much more goes into making natural, personal care products than you might think. It's a science! So it is very important that you understand why you are doing something, not just how to do something. Each class begins with discussing the science behind making the product, why certain ingredients are needed and formulating recipes, which is often the hardest part. Then it's time for the hands-on part, making the product with me as your guide. The goal are for you to have fun learning something new and making your product, and that you leave the class with a solid, knowledge foundation that you can build upon.

Bath Oils:
We'll be looking at a simple how-to on making your very own bath oil. We'll be utilizing natural ingredients like vanilla beans, cloves and essential oils. Bath oils are great for moisturizing and rejuvenation of the skin.

Bath Bombs (aka shower tabs, bath fizzies):
Learn how to make your own bath bombs using natural ingredients like baking soda and Epsom salt, which is great for all skin types, removes toxins, reduces muscle tension, improves blood circulation and relieves pain and cramps. You will be able to customize your bath bombs with the natural colorant and essential oil of your choice.

You will go home with 6 bath bombs, 2-3 bath oils, detailed instructional handout, including ingredients needed/recipe and a list of materials/equipment from local and online suppliers. Lab fee of $30 is payable to the instructor at the first class. NOTE: This is a HANDS-ON Class.
