Women’s weekend for the mind, body and soul

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Two days of inspiration, motivation and discussion on all things that unite a woman’s mind, body and soul is November 10-11 at Granlibakken Lodge & Conference Center. Join us for the 22nd annual Women’s Wellness Weekend with acclaimed authors, speakers and health care professionals.

Daily, morning yoga sessions are just one of the features of the 22nd Annual Women's Wellness Weekend at Granlibakken.

We’ve combined a variety of speakers who will help achieve balance and explain what makes us more susceptible to disease.

Among the topics and speakers are:

— “Revolution of Thinking of Cardiovascular Health Instead of Disease.” This presentation by medical doctor Darwin Labarthe will explore the importance of maintaining a healthy heart through exercise and diet. Labarthe is a professor at Northwestern University’s Rollins
School of Public Health and was recently recognized by the American Heart Association with the Golden Heart Award, the AHA’s highest honor.

— “Benefits of Exercise: Cross Training & Core Strength for Optimal Physical & Mental Health.” This presentation by Dr. Paul Krause, M.D., Chief of Medicine and Staff at Tahoe Forest Hospital, and Alison Gagong is timely because we will be in the onset of ski season.

— “Naturopathic Medicine for Common Health Ailments.” Doctors Christine Campbell and Stephanie Riley will focus on nature’s medicine cabinet when treating health issues.

— She’s survived cancer, heart surgery and an airplane crash. Hear Donna Hartley discuss how she beat the odds when they were stacked against her in an acclaimed motivational
presentation of “Fire Up Your Life.”

— Learn how to manage your stress with laughter as Dr. Kim Bateman presents the “Power of Humor.” She’ll explain how laughter — which releases endorphins — provides health benefits such as lowering blood pressure, increasing your ability to process and retain information.

— Medicines and Supplements, Dr. Johanna Koch

— A discussion on sex with Dr. Shawn Coll

— Cancer awareness with Dr. Ahrin Koppel

— Intuitive eating with Betsy Taylor, RD.

The weekend’s physical activities include daily morning yoga sessions and walks along Granlibakken’s 74-acre trails before breakfast. Tahoe City’s Tim Schroeder, a nationally recognized leader in Ki Gong, will be leading a session in this gentle work out defined by breathing, posture and meditation. Although not a physical activity, Bob Ayres, a sell out from last year, is back by popular demand and will offer astrological chart readings.

Retail therapy, combined with wine and cheese reception, will end the Saturday sessions as local artisans and health-oriented businesses sell items ranging from healing stones to jewelry and specialty-crafted woolens.

Following lunch, the Lake Tahoe Women’s Wellness Weekend will close out with a Zumba Party featuring its high-energy moves to Latin and other fast-moving rhythms.

The grand finale, the interactive Health Fair, closes the Wellness Weekend on Sunday afternoon. Acupuncture treatments, body scans and therapeutic massages list high among the activities.

Event-only registration costs $99.00 and includes lunch. Some seminars have additional fees. Grab a girlfriend and stay for $144/person double occupancy per person (rate includes conference fee). To register online click here and use “www2012” as login and password.
