Most of what we have been taught about nutrition and health our whole lives is wrong. And with so much information at our finger tips in these modern times how can we tell if what we find is real and worth knowing or not. With degenerative disease like cancer, diabetes, heart disease and obesity on the rise we need to look at the connection between diet and immunity and see where we are going astray. Join Holistic Health Expert Amy Likins MS, Nutrition, of All One Yoga and Wellness and Café Organic as we explore many modern myths and misconceptions about diet and other health related topics. Including the controversial topics:

Is Dairy Best for Building strong bones?

Amy will talk about what a true Holistic Path to Health and wellbeing is and help you get a road map to moving in the right direction. The first step is to arm yourself with information and learning to become more in tune with yourself. Practices such as yoga, meditation, tai chi, reiki, etc, can help this process. We will also discuss true super foods (the ones that nature provides ), the dire need for periodic cleansing of the body, eating a whole foods plant based diet, tools and techniques for supporting the body and mind on the path to holistic wellness. The Goal is for you to come away from this talk more informed about how your body functions and better prepared to make the right decisions for you and your life. We have the power to heal ourselves, and it all starts with taking that first step. 

 

 

ABOUT AMY

 

Amy Likins MS, CNC, Holistic Nutrition Counselor and Chef, Registered Certified Yoga Teacher, Reiki Master, owner and director of All One Yoga LLC and Café Organic. In 1998 Amy acquired a B.S. in Geological Sciences from Southern Illinois University and worked in the field as a geologist in Montana, Mexico, New Mexico, Arizona and Illinois. Next Amy worked as a government contractor from 1999-2002 as an Archeologist, continuing to spend much time in the beauty of the world we live in. Amy began practicing yoga in 1993 while still in college and then deepened her studies while working on the road as an archeologist. In 2001, she helped to establish the first yoga studio in Destin Florida, and a year later helped to open a second location in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. While working at Dragonfly Yoga Amy began to take on private clients for instruction of yoga and this lead to teaching about other areas of wellness such as healthy eating, healthy living and regular cleansing and detoxing for our bodies. Ever since, she has dedicated her life to fostering the growth of the ever expanding holistic health community on the Emerald Coast. In 2004, Amy experienced a major life change and was injured severely in a car accident, which left her with multiple physical limitations. She learned to use yoga therapy and healthy nutrition as a way to heal body her body and mind. Her own yoga practice became gentler and thus began to attract students who needed a gentler and more compassionate approach to yoga, and became the local expert in therapeutic yoga.  A few years later Amy went back to school to obtain a Masters Degree in Holistic Nutrition, and began to teach seminars and cooking classes to help others learn more about using healthy whole foods to prevent disease and to help manage and reverse health issues that may already be in place. In 2008, Amy was approached by a group of local doctors, including Chiropractors, who wanted help in opening an Organic Café and establishing a local Organic Food Co-Op. Amy teaches group wellness seminars and conducts individual Nutrition Consults that focus on a client centered approach that establish individual needs based on current health, lifestyle, life stage and environmental factors.
