Session & Rental Info

SPECIAL EVENT: NUTRITION AND DIET WORKSHOP WITH LAURIE FINEISEN. Friday, July 6th and/or July 13th 12:00-1:30 p.m.

Join Laurie Findeisen of New England Wellness, LLC at the Salt Cave of Darien for a workshop as we explore different aspects of nutrition and diet for long term health, weight management and much more while experiencing the healing benefits of Himalyan Pink Salt. We will cover a different topic each week and help keep each other motivated and accountable. All sessions will include goal setting, interactive group discussion, healthy recipes and tips for success. Join us for one or both! Week 1: Abs and Long Term Health are Made in the Kitchen - not the gym! on Friday, July 6th -- 12-1:30 pm Whole 30, counting points, dieting and then falling off the wagon all imply short term goals. We will talk about a scientifically proven approach to nutrition that is easy, tasty and great for the brain, heart and waistline. We will focus on foods that give us the biggest bang for our buck -- nutrient dense, filling and energy/mood stabilizing, whether your goal is to lose a few pounds or just feel stronger, more energetic and healthier. Week 2: Move Waste from your Waist on Friday July 13th -- 12-1:30 pm Carbohydrates, fats and sugars are not created alike. These three nutrients serve a lot of important functions in the body, but there are so many choices and dietary theories – It’s hard to separate fact from fiction and navigate all the options! Come learn about the balance that will help with weight management and wellness while not feeling deprived. Cost per session: $ 35 Spaces are limited -- please email Laurie Findeisen, Certified Wellness Advisor at nehealthcoach@gmail.com to register or if you have questions!

Yin Yoga is a slower paced yoga, meditative in nature, in which you sink into poses for 3-5 minutes targeting the connective tissue of the body. The poses are performed while either seated or laying on the yoga mat, with a minimal amount of physical exertion aiming to release physical and emotional tensions that have accumulated in the body due to the stress of work and personal lives. Some benefits of a yin yoga practice include reducing stress and anxiety, improving flexibility both on and off the mat, releasing fascia and improving the flow of chi or prana in the body through meridian stimulation. This is an all levels class, appropriate for beginners and seasoned yogis alike. Please bring yoga mat, water and white socks. Yoga blocks, straps and blankets will be provided.
