I’m facilitating Trauma Informed Yoga at Starfish Dance and Yoga studio in West Concord!  It’s a 9 week program, and to register, go here:  http://starfishdanceyoga.com/workshops/  If you want to see if this program is for you, we’re having two info sessions on Feb. 28 and March 14, 1:15-2:45.  This program can help people who are interested in combining yoga with other forms of becoming aware of how we store emotions in our bodies.  It helps build mindfulness skills that we can use every day, not just in a yoga studio!

Thursdays, May 24 and May 31, 7:30-9:00pm:  Lotions, lip balms and sprays. Newton North High School.   We’ll be making face lotion, hand lotion, lip balm and an aromatherapy (or body) spray.  To sign up, go to Newton Community Education’s registration webpage:  https://registration.xenegrade.com/nce/courseDisplay.cfm?schID=11137

Nature Walk:  Spotting Wild Herbs.  Sunday, June 3, 5-6:30pm.  We’ll take a walk in Edmands Park in Newtonville and talk about the plants (herbs and trees) that are growing there and have been used for medicine for centuries.  The goal of the walk is to help people start realizing how many helpful plants grow right around them!  To sign up, go to:  https://registration.xenegrade.com/nce/courseDisplay.cfm?schID=11136

I’m teaching four weeks of tween/teen herb classes this Summer!  All classes will be a similar format:  we go on an herb walk for 1.5 hours to learn about the medicinal plants growing around us, and then we come inside for 1.5 hours and make natural products.  On the first day, we’ll make lip balm, and then the kids vote on what the rest of the week looks like!  We had a lot of fun last summer!

Two weeks will be in Arlington. Go to:  http://www.arlingtoncommunityed.org/youth-programs/summer-fun/ and search for DIY natural beauty products under the grade that you are (it’s either 5-6 or 7-9).

Two weeks will be in Newton:  https://registration.xenegrade.com/nce/courseDisplay.cfm?schID=11491 for the week of 8/13/18 and https://registration.xenegrade.com/nce/courseDisplay.cfm?schID=11490 for the week of 8/20/18.
