I am thrilled to host the second session of my one of a kind summer day camp for students aged 8-15 years old. The camp will focus on educating the whole person through mini workshops, demonstrations, and exercises that engage the mind and the body. These will include sessions in yoga, mindful meditation, essential oils, zumba, yoga, and gluten free cooking and baking.

Our July sessions were an amazing success and we are looking forward to an even better experience for this second block of sessions starting Thursday August 25. The August sessions  will be co-led by an amazing panel of Rochester women in Wellness:
