A night of self care


Peter Mallett, Staff Writer ~

Erika Johnson is building a self-care movement one event at a time.

The military member has joined Kara Poyntz, a military spouse, to host A Night of Self Care at the Colwood Activity Centre Saturday, March 14, 6 to 9 p.m.

Together they will present information on meditation, essential oils and exercise.

“There can be a lot of stress associated with being a spouse or member of the military. We believe everyone needs to find their own self care solutions,” said Johnson. “Finding these methods can be difficult, so we are offering a sampling of different techniques to achieve that goal.”

To aid them in their goal, they have enlisted healing experts Meagan Bagnall, a kinesiologist who will offer instruction on kettlebell fitness techniques; Sarah Hofing will provide instruction on yoga and chakra meditation techniques; and Victoria-based dance instructor Miss Cheryl will teach a Zumbini music dance class for children and a Hot Hulu exercise class for adults.

Education and sampling of various essential oils will be taught by Johnson and Poyntz.

To round out the event, local health industry representatives and vendors will have booths on site.  There will also be free giveaways and samples of health care products.

Daycare will be provided for parents with children.

There are 40 spaces available for the event at a cost of $25, available through Eventbrite.ca.
