“Feeding the world in 2050, in a sustainable manner, will be the biggest collective hurdle humanity has ever faced.” – Joel K. Bourne Jr.

Each year we’re overcharging our ecological credit card, and our daily food choices play a major role in this accumulating debt. This lecture will cover the various ways in which our food choices influence the planet and three dietary adjustments we can make to promote a more sustainable food future.

Ryan D. Andrews (ryandandrews.com) writes, speaks, and teaches about sustainable nutrition, exercise, and health. He completed his education and training at the University of Northern Colorado, Kent State University, Johns Hopkins Medicine, and Columbia University.

www.wellnessbridge.com
Sunday, February 9th, 9:00am – 12:00pm
Many yoga students (and quite a few yoga teachers!) find the shoulder girdle to be quite mysterious. Strain and other shoulder issues can be caused by injury, repetitive movement or habit (such as computer work), structural misalignments from scoliosis or kyphosis, and can be challenging to work with. Join well-known yoga teacher and anatomist, Lauri Nemetz, to learn the anatomy of the shoulder and gain an understanding of how the rhythm of movement in this area can impact your asanas, from raising your arms in Warrior One and supporting your weight in Downward-Facing Dog. Explore ways to strengthen the shoulder and how to increase range of motion in areas of restriction. The workshop will be a mix of learning through exploration, partner work, and asana practice. All levels welcome! Lauri is a YA Provider, and this workshop will qualify for CEUs.
