Pranayama Breath of Light Class May 26th


Pranayama is the art and science of controlling one’s breath. Through simple breathing techniques we can extend the prana, or life force of nature, through ourselves. Pranayama nourishes the subtle body, opens the channels, and calms the mind and emotions. It can greatly aid meditation and healing work or just get you through the day. Breath work is easy and fun to learn and can be practiced anywhere, anytime. Our class will cover the fundamentals of pranayama theory and include the practice of some basic pranayams that will take minutes to learn and can be used for a lifetime.

Ongoing Classes~ Energy Realignment Class May 17th



A realignment of energy is the ability to clearly claim and identify what makes you come alive and then move yourself into alignment with it. I will lead you through an experience of defining your intention, listing your obstacles, what you’re willing to let go of and what strengths and actions you need to take to realize your intention. We will do exercises designed to specifically address the energy that needs to shift—such as breathing, visualizing, movement, toning, etc. These exercises align all of your energy to your intention. We will end the experience with a guided meditation, with me playing singing bowls. If you would like a deeper sense of self, a deeper sense of peace, more clarity and harmony in your life, this is a fantastic way to get you on your way. You will leave feeling lighter and humming with your heart and the heart of creation.

5 Tips for Choosing a Natrual Sunscreen

5 Tips for Choosing a Natural Sunscreen

 




By Niki Whiting for Radiance Herbs and Massage
Summer is creeping up on us fast — and spring feels quite a bit like summer these days. That means it’s time to stock up on sunscreens. Radiance Herbs and Massage offers many choices for you and your family. But what do you need to know when making a selection?
Radiance Herbs and Massage carries a wide selection of baby items from natural care products to toys, clothes, and feeding options.
Radiance Herbs and Massage has a large kids section including safe sunscreens for your child.
1. Use Broad Spectrum Sunscreens - Look for sunscreens that are labeled as broad spectrum. These mean that they block both UVA and UVB rays, aspects of the ultraviolet light spectrum. The SPF rating on the bottle only refers to the factor of UVB rays blocked by the product. For example, SPF 15 blocks approximately 93% of UVB rays, SPF 30 blocks about 97%. If you apply enough sunscreen, both in quantity and re-apply as necessary, you don’t have to pay more for higher SPF ratings. And, if you plan on being in the water, make sure you choose a water-resistant sunscreens. Radiance has several specifically for kids.
2. Know the difference between UVA and UVB - What is the difference between UVA and UVB rays? UVB rays are the ones that cause sunburn and short-term effects. UVA rays are the ones that cause longer-term damage, promoting the classic signs of aging. UVA rays account for the vast majority of UV (ultraviolet) radiation and these rays can pass through glass and clouds, unlike UVB rays, which cannot.
