Taking Thyme For Sage


June 15, 2019
02:00 PM until 04:00 PM


Did you know that during the Middle Ages dill was used as an ingredient in love potions?

That early Greek gentlemen wore garlands of parsley to protect themselves from drunkenness? 

Have you ever wondered which yoga poses would help you enjoy food more fully or soothe those aches after a bout of gardening?

Join Janis Sheldon and Bonnie Keast for this two hour workshop focused on slowing down and taking ‘thyme’ for yourself. During our afternoon together you’ll use your senses to enjoy herbs, practice mindful eating, learn some of the folklore and ways to use herbs found in the garden beside the studio, and experience a Vinyasa that will assist your digestion. Participants will leave with heightened appreciation of herbs as well as their own herb plant and information cards. This workshop is open to all.

Bonnie's book, Beyond Salt and Pepper will be available for purchase ($15.00). Cash or check only, please. Beyond Salt and Pepper is designed to inspire both novice and seasoned cooks to expand their horizons in cooking and eating enjoyment. There are easy and healthful ways to spice up meals and ramp up the flavor in everyday foods.

Bonnie Keast’s professional experiences include teaching and leadership positions in education. She is certified as both an ontological and somatic coach and finds that the practice of yoga has greatly enriched her life. Bonnie is a committed student of spiritual aging and human transformation and refreshes her own spirit with daily walks, meditation, and conversations.

Janis Sheldon began a personal practice in 1980 and has been sharing yoga since 2006. Her style draws from a blend of traditions as she creates a gentle practice with a focus on postural strengthen and alignment. Having had spine surgery in 2003, Janis shares her journey back to physical comfort and mobility in daily life through a gentle, yoga practice, acceptance and a sense of humor.
