We’re so excited! The event we’ve been preparing for these past 6 months is finally here! We hope you can all come out to join us at the Destin-Ft. Walton Convention Center on September 9 and 10 for our 7th annual Emerald Coast Holistic Health Expo. This free event empowers visitors to explore and embrace a well-rounded approach to their health and well-being. We’re proud to showcase Northwest Florida’s premier providers and products supporting and inspiring healthy, happy, earth-friendly living.

At the heart of the expo is a celebration of health and wellness, encompassing all aspects of mind, body and spirit. Exhibitors from across the holistic health spectrum will gather at the expo, presenting a vast selection of products and services. Every year, the expo offers a unique shopping experience, allowing attendees to discover new and innovative products that support their healthy lifestyle goals.

The expo also features an extensive lineup of renowned speakers, experts, and practitioners, offering inspiring talks, workshops, and interactive sessions. Participants will learn from the best in the field, exploring topics such as mindfulness, nutrition, energy healing, yoga, meditation, herbal remedies, and much more. From introductory sessions for beginners to advanced workshops for seasoned practitioners, there is something for everyone.

In addition to the educational and exhibitor offerings, the Emerald Coast Holistic Health Expo offers numerous opportunities for relaxation and rejuvenation. Attendees can participate in morning beachside yoga sessions, guided meditation classes, and nature walks along the breathtaking coastline. There are also dedicated areas for massage therapy, energy healing, and other therapeutic treatments, providing a serene oasis for attendees to unwind and restore their vitality.

The Emerald Coast Holistic Health Expo not only offers a wealth of knowledge and experiences but also fosters a sense of community among attendees and exhibitors. It’s truly an event that nourishes the body, mind and soul, leaving participants feeling inspired, empowered and equipped to lead a healthier, more balanced life. Visit pages 34-37 for a directory of all the expo vendors and sponsors.

Additionally, did you know it’s officially National Yoga Awareness Month? Each September in the U.S. we celebrate the many benefits of having a regular yoga practice. To honor this month, we feature “Yoga on Vacation” (page 22) which offers simple poses and tips for travelers. And speaking of touring, “Traveling with Purpose: Nine destinations for Spiritual Enlightenment” (page 24) focuses on nine locations that are ideal for spiritual seekers. 

This month’s issue is very well-rounded, with articles ranging from adding mindfulness to mealtime and being a better dog parent, to medical tourism and helping children overcome anxiety and trauma. And for more happenings around town, check out Stone Soup’s Harvest Festival taking place September 23 in Ft. Walton Beach (see page 7). And don’t forget to visit our events calendar, which is abundantly filled with great things happening in our community. 

Here’s to a successful expo and a month filled with health and happiness!
