Ki GongMore movement, more education, and a new keynote speaker. There is a lot to be excited about for the Lake Tahoe Wellness Weekend 2017, November 11 & 12. In year's past, this event, formerly known as Women's Wellness Weekend, was only available to women. This year, we are inviting people of all genders to participate and enjoy this unforgettable weekend.

For this year's Lake Tahoe Wellness Weekend, we listened to your feedback. More movement classes? Got it. Take a break from the seminars to enjoy a restorative Yoga Nidra practice, or align your chi to improve your balance in an invigorating Ki Gong workshop. Each morning starts with a sunrise Vinyasa class, designed to prepare your mind, body, and spirit for the day ahead. You won't want to miss the drum circle, led by Liz Broscoe, aka DrumChik. Learn rhythms and dances, and build lasting relationships with those around you as you enjoy the empowerment and freedom that comes from drumming.

Wellness Weekend 2017 also boasts an improved speaker schedule, with new speakers discussing current topics ranging from GMO foods to the healing properties of laughter. Learn how to improve healing and recovery through neurophysiology, or learn how your brain and your gut interact and respond to different chemicals and compounds found in everyday foods. Wellness Weekend will bring the best of Eastern and Western philosophies and medicine to you, with speakers and workshop leaders with varied backgrounds and areas of expertise.

The keynote speaker for this event is a Master Educator at the Chopra Center, Roger Gabriel. Roger is known in the wellness community for his insight and expertise in a wide variety of topics, from forgiveness to Vedic technique. He leads workshops around the globe, teaching and helping people with yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda practices.  Roger has developed a relationship with acclaimed guru Deepak Chopra, and has been an integral member of the Chopra Center team for years. Roger will be delivering his keynote entitled "Release the Karmic Secret," in which he will be exploring the different kinds of karma that exist and how to attain a higher level of enlightenment in this life or the next.

The Local Artisan Marketplace on Saturday will be a great time to peruse some local goods, or to check out some North Lake Tahoe services (psst--if you want to be a vendor at the fair, fill out the application here). Enjoy beer and wine tastings, delicious food, and good company.
