From yoga to acupuncture to essential oils, more people are seeking natural ways to live smarter and get healthier. But with the explosion in alternative health treatments and green products and services, they often don’t know where to start. The Emerald Coast Holistic Health Expo, set for March 11 and 12 at the Emerald Coast Convention Center and Ross Marler Park, lets health-conscious consumers explore the wide world of natural products and therapies—and have fun in the process.
The expo will showcase the latest in fitness, yoga, meditation, nutrition, functional medicine, holistic healing and green living, with more than 70 exhibitors onsite both days from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Among the many door prizes will be gift certificates from local practitioners, natural product and essential oils gift baskets, and spa packages.
Outdoor activities will include a fair-trade product or farmers’ market, kayaking, paddleboarding, martial arts demonstrations, a guided nature walk, food trucks and Natural Awakenings’ fitness challenge benefiting the Boot Campaign, a nonprofit organization that facilitates comprehensive health assessments and treatment for veterans.
Exhibits and outdoor activities are free.
With a $35 one-day or $55 weekend pass, visitors can also attend up to six lectures, workshops or classes a day on topics like reflexology, yoga, aromatherapy, natural hormone balance, CrossFit, gigong, nutrition, acupuncture and chiropractic, with additional CEU workshops for members of the holistic health industry. Preregistration online is encouraged. Visitors can also preregister for paid sessions in AromaTouch, reflexology, Reiki, massage therapy, Symphony of the Cells and other modalities, as well as general health assessments.
Onsite child care for ages 1 to 5, including music, arts and crafts and games, costs $5 per hour. Children’s Yoga will also be offered as a separate class.
