Eisenhower Introduces “Wellness Worth Watching” Movie Series
Eisenhower Wellness Institute and Desert Health® are partnering to offer the “Wellness Worth Watching” movie series this season. Three thought-provoking movies will provide an in-depth look at the topics of nutrition, the mind-body connection, and the mind-shift from stress to happiness.
Each evening will begin with the screening of one nationally acclaimed and award-winning movie. Following the movie, a leader in that topic will host a question and answer session and then guide the audience through a practical application of the topic.
At the January 10th event, after viewing the movie Fed Up, Dr. Jeralyn Brossfield, Director of the Eisenhower Wellness Institute, will provide a demonstration of healthy meals geared towards our busy, on-the-go lifestyle. Attendees will leave with options they can implement to improve their own nutrition.
Following The Connection showing February 7, Jayne Robertson, RYT-500 and Certified Yoga Therapist of Desert Yoga Therapy, will guide the audience through a relaxation practice, which can be used as a tool to enhance calm and present mindset in day-to-day challenges.
The final movie night March 7 will feature the documentary Happy, followed by a presentation by author and physician, Dr. Kiran Dintyala, who has simplified the teaching of stress-reduction to practical applied steps. He will lead a discussion on how we can shift our experience of stressors in our lives.
Join us and start your New Year on a path to good health, happiness and balance!
