    Wellness Wednesday: Fermentation for Gut Health with Ash Shover

    Wellness Wednesday: Fermentation for Gut Health with Ash Shover

    December 6, 2023

    Join us as we learn about one of humanity's oldest and easiest forms of food preservation: fermentation from Ash Shover!
    This session will provide:
    - A brief history of fermentation.
    - Tips for success for those new to the practice.
    - Benefits that fermented foods provide.
    Stop by to try some samples and learn about how fermentation can benefit you! We'll also have soup and warm bread to enjoy during the presentation.
    Then, we'll move into a Yin yoga class taught by Metis. Yin yoga is a slow, low-to-the-ground practice; poses are held for a few minutes with the aid of props, allowing gravity and time to move the body deeper into the posture. This practice invites us to be still and look within, perfect for this season and time of the year. This class is suitable for all ages and experience levels!
    To fully enjoy this cozy yoga class, please bring extra warm layers, socks, a yoga mat, and any yoga props you may want to use, such as a blanket or a couple of throw pillows. The class will involve long holds on the floor, so you will want to be warm and supported during these poses.
    Metis is a Certified Yoga Instructor specializing in Yin and a lifelong student. When she's not practicing yoga, she's painting, running her small business- Yoga for Everybody, and spending time outside. She lives in Fritz Creek with her husband Orion, an adopted bulldog, and an ancient cat.
    Come for a part or stay for all! This is a FREE event, everyone is welcome!
