Food as Medicine:
Quarterly Series

Discover how you can learn exactly which foods promote optimal nutrition based on bio-individuality (what works best for your body), not a standard one size fits all dietary approach. Nicole Bezinski, a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Earth’s owner, will discuss different dietary theories and methods for discovering how you can use food as medicine to promote optimal health through a food plan that specifically suits your body, all while keeping the microbiome (gut) in balance.

Meditation Workshops for Centering: Quarterly Series

Earth curates bespoke quarterly workshops focusing on specialized themes such as mindfulness, loving kindness, gratitude, body scanning, and yoga nidra. Students will be guided through a calming reflection, using the breath, visualization, and mantras to still the mind in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth. These programs are designed to not only enrich the in-class experience, but to also impart students with the best techniques to practice at home.
