All-day event geared toward women's needs

— Ladies need to be pampered, to have time set aside for their needs.

It is that mindset, Crystal Lawson said, that prompted her to create “Ladies Day,” which she hopes is the first in a long line of events geared solely toward women.

Female speakers and demonstrators will be on hand for an all-day retreat of sorts.

“I was thinking, what would be something that would be a nice break for the people who are taking care of all the plans?” Lawson said. “When do they get to take care of themselves? I made some calls and everyone was into it.”

The day is designed for a rejuvenation of body, mind and spirit. Nearly a dozen items will be discussed, and a healthy lunch will be served.

The event is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 14 at the Depot Art Center. The cost is $80 per person, and the space is limited to 35 people.

Those who do come may be familiar with Carrie Nelson and her Satyananda yoga poses or just yoga in general, but many people who attend likely aren’t familiar with Lena Steed’s aurasoma work and her tarot card readings.

Chakra cleansing, ionic cleansing, journaling and essential oils are other topics that will be covered.

Psychologist Cate Potyen will address how women can take care of others without losing themselves.

As of Thursday, nutritionist June Florence wasn’t sure what she was going to do for her live food demonstration, but her knowledge of all-natural products and her work with cleansing the body may be informative for participants.

Melanie Dailey will discuss hormones, stress and immunity.

Women can browse and select which breakout session interests them. Lawson hopes the variety of topics will entice women into giving up a Saturday for self-reflection.

“The idea was to take all the care-taking that they do for others and take it inward,” Lawson said.

To register, call Lawson at 870-0814.

Women are reminded to dress comfortably and to come with an empty stomach because of some of the exercises they will perform. Women also need to take a blanket or yoga mat.
