FACTS OF LIFE
with Krista Margolis

Saturday, October 6th from 12-4pm
STRAIGHTFORWARD - HONEST - OPEN

The Facts of Life is a workshop geared towards girls ages 10-14. We will discuss puberty and all that goes with it! Girls will walk away with a greater knowledge and appreciation for their amazing bodies and what is happening or about to happen as they embark on this physical and emotional change.

Topics include (but may not be limited to) the following:

*physical aspects of puberty (think boobs, body changes, menstrual cycle, hormones, pubic hair, sweating and more!)

*emotional aspects of puberty (think mood changes, new thoughts and feelings, peer pressure)

*social aspects of puberty (think stress, school/homework, sports, peer pressure, sexual identity, differences among peers, fitting in, difference between good friend and bad friend)

*self care (think sleep, nutrition, showering, skin care, meditation, journaling, stress management)

*self-image/self-esteem (ways to boost both)

*safety (only YOU get to decide who touches your body, making good choices, effects of alcohol)

*birth control (a brief overview, not a thorough discussion…because the question “So I will get pregnant every time I have sex?” seems to always come up!)

*masturbation (many girls this age are masturbating and need to hear that it is very normal and nothing to fear or be ashamed of)


Krista Margolis is a registered nurse and Women’s Healthcare Nurse Practitioner. She has a passion for teaching young women (and adult women!) about their super cool bodies and all those bodies’ capabilities. She has experience teaching this age group the facts of life and it’s one of her favorite things to do. She has an open, very honest and warm approach to girls and is open to communication before and after the workshop. She respects that this is a sensitive subject for families and she also believes that an honest, open and often humorous dialogue with our kids is incredibly important in helping to establish a trusting relationship for years to come.

Fee: $75.00 per person

The Pleasure Is All Mine:
Embody Your Sexual Vitality
with Dr. Rachel Allyn

Thursday, October 25th from 7-8:30pm
YES, THE PLEASURE IS ALL YOURS -- ALL OF IT.

 

2-291-2.jpg

Why?  Because you DESERVE it!
AND contrary to what you may have been taught,
pleasure is not an indulgence. 
 

Lacking pleasure, and the building blocks of pleasure — connection to your body, your sensuality, your ability to feel presence and cultivate a sense of play — is a public health issue. The consequences of depriving yourself this natural human emotion include everything from being disconnected emotionally to physical inflammation, addiction, mood disorders and more.
 

Let’s face it, as a woman you are a rockstar at being nurturing to others. But you neglect yourself too often.
 

Pleasure is one breath, one heartbeat, one touch away, it just needs you to reclaim it. (And the bonus is that everyone around you benefits as well.) This gathering turns the spotlight on helping you find freedom from guilt, shame or avoidance of the pleasure you deserve.


In this women’s-only gathering facilitated by Dr. Rachel Allyn (holistic psychologist, yoga teacher and pleasure expert) we’ll look at the reasons why it’s so hard to give yourself pleasure — whether it be a piece of chocolate or an orgasm — and mind-body tools to reconnect you to pleasure in your body and in the bedroom.

The Wise Woman
with Krista Margolis

Tuesday, October 30th from 7-9pm
WOMEN, WISDOM, AND WHAT THE #$*&

The term perimenopause refers to the years leading up to the last menstrual period. Krista, a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioners and Functional Medicine/Holistic Health Practitioner, will guide you in understanding what is changing in your body during perimenopause, offer support and respect and suggest ways to help you through this very natural process.

Women in perimenopause often notice the following changes:

  • skin changes/acne
  • weight changes
  • mood swings
  • changes in their menstrual cycle
  • sleep issues
  • changes in their libido

We will discuss ways to create your ideal path through this time of change, including Western Medicine, such as hormone utilization, bone density, and heart health. We will combine that with complementary modalities from meditation to acupuncture to herbs, and a discussion on stress reduction and diet.

Join Krista and other women in this safe, nurturing environment and learn ways to navigate this important time in your life. By understanding and making the most out of the menopausal transition, you can create a healthy body that will take you into some of the best years of your life!

 

Fee: $40 per person
