April Workshop Explores Stress-Disease Connection

Feb 29, 2016 07:13PM

Amy Likins, nutritionist and holistic health and wellness expert, will teach an integrative wellness class, Exploring the Connection between Stress and Disease, April 30 at Synergy Organic Juice Bar & Café in Fort Walton.

In this three-hour class, Likins will discuss the types of stress modern humans experience, explore the causes of stress and disease, and help participants assess their lifestyles to see what they can change. “We will do exercises so they have real tools to start using now to reduce the stress load,” she says. “We’ll learn about the nutrient demands of chronic stress, and then have an awesome organic meal that shows them how to do it and just how wonderfully delicious it can be.”

Likins takes an integrative and holistic approach to her workshops and classes: some are physical, like her myofascial release and recovery class, while others are more educational and experiential, showing participants how to eat better and plan healthy meals to stay well and fight disease. This integrative class is both, she says. 

The $70 cost ($125 for two people) includes food, drink, lecture, assessments, exercises, dinner and a Q & A. Register in advance by calling 850-865-4919 or 850-243-7492 or visiting
