Wellness Classes & Workshops

Medicinal Lattes with Herbs + Superfoods: Holiday Flavors

5:00-6:30pm Sunday, October 20th 

Your morning routine and Autumn pumpkin spice latte habit are about to get a major upgrade. In this class, GMB’s resident herbalist Erin Antosh will demonstrate how to make a health-promoting and extremely tasty Pumpkin Spice Latte. You will learn the medicinal properties of the spices typically used in “pumpkin spice” as well as other botanicals used to enhance the energizing and detoxifying qualities of the latte. Using the same basic method, an immune-boosting Beet Root Latte will also be demonstrated, showing how easy it is to make medicinal strength lattes in your kitchen. These lattes make a great replacement for smoothies in the cooler seasons, serving as a wonderful medium to enjoy a daily dose of medicinal herbs and superfoods.
NOTE: Participants will sip a medicinal strength Pumpkin Spice Latte in class. All ingredients used in this workshop will be organic and naturally caffeine-free, and lattes will be sweetened with honey or maple syrup. The lattes made in class will not include coffee or espresso, but can be easily enhanced at home with your favorite brew. Please inform us of any
allergies prior to the class and we will do our best to accommodate.

Medicinal Chocolate Tasting & Decorating: Holiday Treats

6:30-8:00pm Friday, November 15th

5:00-6:30pm Sunday, November 17th

Did you know that cacao, the primary ingredient in dark chocolate, is one of the most antioxidant and magnesium-rich foods? But most chocolate on store shelves is overly processed, and loaded with sugar and additives, depleting its potential nutritional power.

In this workshop, you will learn how to make dark chocolate that is truly health-promoting, while still being extremely tasty. GMB’s resident Herbalist, Erin Antosh, will teach you how to infuse CBD (Cannabidiol from the hemp plant) into chocolate, hide the not-so-tasty medicinal herbs in
creamy fillings, use edible flowers for decoration, and add “superfoods” to boost the nutrient density of your “no longer guilty” pleasure. Additionally, you will learn about the power of raw (unpasteurized) honey in supporting wellness, as we will use local raw honey exclusively as a sweetener.
You will have the opportunity to taste medicinal herb-infused chocolates during class, and we will discuss the medicinal properties of the herbs used to make the chocolate creations, so you will understand how you can make chocolates for particular wellness goals. You will have the opportunity to decorate chocolates and will go home with two of the chocolate truffles you
make in class (if they make it out of class before being eaten)!
These creative chocolates make great gifts!
NOTES: This is partially a hands-on workshop, as you will get to decorate pre-made chocolates. Your event fee includes herbal tea to sip during the class, two chocolate truffles to taste during class, and two chocolates you make to take home. The chocolate you will take home will need
to be refrigerated soon after the class, so plan to bring a cooler bag if you want to keep the chocolates chilled during your plans after the class. Please inform us of any allergies prior to the class and we will do our best to accommodate.
$50 per person

Gentle Daily Detoxification- New Year Resolutions!

5:00-6:30pm Sunday, January 12th

During this eye-opening class, we will talk about the body’s natural detoxification capabilities, and why extreme detoxification programs and cleanses are not necessary (and often dangerous if not performed under the supervision of a health professional). Instead of doing a drastic detox
program a couple of times a year, you could be supporting your body’s detoxification pathways on a daily basis, so your body never gets to a point where it has accumulated more toxins than it is able to eliminate.
GMB’s resident Herbalist, Erin Antosh, will discuss the often surprising sources of toxins in our daily lives, and how to reduce your exposure. To help you incorporate a daily detoxification ritual into your life, Erin will talk about the various medicinal herbs, supplements, foods, and strategies
that can be easily and safely added to your daily routine to support your body’s natural detoxification capabilities.
Additionally, you will have the opportunity to check out GMB’s post-massage infrared sauna and try a 5-10 minute session in a one-person capacity Sauna Space near-infrared sauna – wonderful tools for detoxification.
NOTES: Your event fee includes herbal tea to sip during the class and an optional 5-10 minute session in a one-person capacity Sauna Space near-infrared sauna. Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing you don’t mind sweating in if you would like to try the sauna. Please inform
us of any allergies prior to the class and we will do our best to accommodate.

Yoga Nidra

Known as “yogic sleep,” Yoga nidra is a conscious relaxation practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Yoga nidra is generally practiced lying down so you can let go completely. Props, pillows and blankets are commonly used, as well as anything that will help you get into a totally comfortable, restful position. A typical yoga nidra practice is highly guided meditation, and takes your attention to specific places through a series of scripts and/or visualizations. No yoga experience necessary; all you need to bring is yourself and an open mind!
