These are emerging trends in the wellness world. And for good reason. CBD is a great compliment to the ancient practice of Yoga, provided the fact that it is an effective remedy for stress, anxiety, and inflammation. This workshop will explore this very thesis: The potentially synergistic benefits of combining the two for greater effect. Please join us for a evening of discussion and sampling, guided by The Alchemist Kitchen CBD Clinician, Zachary Clancy. There will be a presentation and Q&A session following.
Wednesday March 13 | 7:30 - 9pm
$30 | $24 for members
