We all want to feel good. We want to feel healthy and energetic, and at peace with our bodies. But all too often we end up reading magazine articles about a radical new diet, or the latest study that shows everything we thought we knew about nutrition was wrong. With so much information out there, how do we discover what really works? How can we know what will work for us? After all, everyone’s body, interests, and personal history are different. So why waste time on one-size-fits-all wellness? That’s the idea behind this month’s Holistic Wellness workshop led by Joanne Frederick. With an individualized approach to personal wellness, Frederick helps participants dispel the fads and myths and get in touch with their own ability to be their very own personal health and wellness champion. Sound like a huge relief? Yeah, we thought so.


Frederick is a healthcare consultant determined to change our approach to delivering healthcare by empowering people to know what’s best for them and their body. The Holistic Wellness workshop will begin with a four day class held at Respite.  But this is just a taste. If you’re hungry for more after the four day intro, you can continue online with two six-month phases, which lead into a lifetime practice—one based on your own personal path of wellness. But how exactly does it all come together? The workshop will cover visualization exercises and individual assignments. It may sound like it’s coming at you from all angles, but that’s what makes it great. After all, besides having a Masters in Applied Healing Arts, Frederick is also a certified personal trainer, a graduate of the Health Coach program from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, a Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, and a certified yoga teacher. In other words: if ever there was someone who had a pretty good all-around handle on human health and the many ways to achieve it—she’s probably it.
