Health Coaching: What Is it?
with Kimberly Haley
Explore the emerging field of counseling and learn how having a Certified Health Coach as part of your healthcare team can bring about dramatic change in your daily life. Health Coaches guide you through self-healing by creating a space where you can focus on what YOU are feeling and what YOUR body is telling you. There are no strict diets, no specific foods to eat, and no one is telling you how to live each day. Through careful exploration of your own stressors, sleep, finances, relationship(s), spirituality and everything that impacts your life daily, you can learn how these impact what foods you put on your plate. This 6-week course will be a broad overview of some of the topics that would be covered in a Health Coaching session. Bring your thoughts, ideas, questions and enthusiasm for new recipes as each class will showcase a specific topic and then have time for round-table discussions and recipes for healthier eating!

Parents/caregivers will learn massage techniques to enhance their baby’s development and promote well-being. For babies, research shows measurable improvements in weight gain, decreased fussiness, improved sleep patterns, decreased anxiety and improved motor behavior/muscle tone. The benefits for parents/caregivers include improved relaxation, reduced stress, increased confidence by enhancing baby’s health and development, quality bonding time, and increased awareness of baby’s physical condition. A calmer, happier baby = a calmer, happier family! Instruction is modeled on a life-sized baby doll and parents will practice on their baby. Class is limited to 3 infants and 6 parents/caregivers.

Please call the Adult Education office to register for this class.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." Come and align yourself with this healing energy. It is not massage and no touching of a body is needed to do Reiki on another person who is fully clothed. Both classes are needed to complete Reiki Level 1. Class size is limited. Please bring something to drink and your lunch. Students should obtain a copy of Essential Reiki by Diane Stein and read the Forward and Chapter 1 by the first class. Please let the Adult Ed office know if you need us to supply a copy.
