At Pomona Society, we believe that helping the community also means holistic wellness for our members — taking care of the mind and the body! Join us for a fun and informative evening with expert advice from a dietician. Nora Shank is a registered dietician who coaches women to love healthy eating through intelligent and intuitive strategies. She will guide us through a mini wellness workshop to identify powerful strategies to improve sleep, energy and stamina through one simple principle. Nora has helped thousands of people through her twenty years in the food industry, first as a caterer and then as a dietician - she want you to get clarity on how to both love good food and stay healthy, all while staying off the dieting merry-go-round.
The agenda will conclude with a breathwork and yoga workshop led by Emily Rasowsky. Come prepared to stretch into some light yoga movements with comfortable fitness wear.

Undeniably, zero to three is a critical time of life for children. This period of time will effect a child’s emotional, social, physical, and mental well being for the rest of their lives which makes it essential that the adult and environmental influences in their lives during this period are positive, healthy, and supportive toward a thriving future. And yet between forty to sixty percent of children will experience varying levels of trauma during childhood. Organizations that are focused on early childhood support and intervention are a powerful partner to our community of parents and caregivers.
We're excited to welcome three panelists who represent various perspectives and areas of expertise on this issue in order to present our community with a tangible challenge and opportunity to engage in a "Solve" during the upcoming months.
