STUDIO EVENTS and WORKSHOPS
6/2 INJURY and HERBAL REMEDY
As mindful as we are, injuries are a part of life. In the healing process we may choose to explore techniques, medicine, and lifestyle changes that work best for us during this recovery. In this introductory class, we'll explore holistic approaches to pain relief through herbal medicine and self-soothing techniques. This class will focus on physical injuries, but will include techniques for emotional support as this plays an important role in the healing process. We'll begin with a basic foundation in a holistic medicine, and then explore specific herbs and techniques most commonly used in injury recovery. We will also discuss a few basic 'on the spot' herbal first aid techniques, as well as discuss longer term complementary and multi-modality approaches. You will be able to taste, smell, feel, and familiarize yourself with commonly used medicinal plants. Participants will leave this class with an enhanced "tool kit" of basic herbal first aid, and knowledge of widely applicable plants for injury recovery.

ONGOING RESEARCH PARTICIPANTS NEEDED
After surveying many studios in the Detroit and surrounding area, U of M Dearborn Clinical Health Psychology graduate student researchers determined that the BE NICE Yoga studio most closely reflects the fundamentals of traditional yoga, and promotes a balanced focus on breath, meditation, and physical movements that is appropriate for every individual's practice. Thus, they expect that the students of this studio will also be representative of a contemporary yoga practitioner who engages in a practice based on ancient, traditional methods. With this in mind, the students at BE NICE are expected to strongly represent a superior participant for this study. Are you interested in participating in a study on yoga? Are you between the ages of 18 and 45? Are you in relatively good health, free of cardiovascular problems? Are you free of medications, such as cold, allergy, or steroid medication? Are you willing to abstain from caffeine and alcohol for 12 hours and tobacco for 6 hours before the second phase of the study? If yes, you may be eligible to participate. All experience levels (beginners to experienced practitioners) are encouraged to inquire!
