Vacationers are Welcome

Yes, it’s that time of year again. The weather gets warm, school gets out and people head to the beach!
Just because you’re on vacation does not mean you can skip your workouts. If you are anything like me, vacation means you eat some of the yummy foods you normally avoid and the adult beverages increase. Yes?

Well here is the good news… Body Edge Fitness offers day passes for $12 or week passes for $30.

Are classes more your speed? (You don’t have to think, the instructor tells you what to do in a fun group environment.) Come try Tabata, Yoga, Strength, Core Challenge, Body Fit, Spin, Edge, Zumba or Silver Sneakers for $10 per class.

Personal Training is also available by appointment to focus on your specific needs for $35 per session.

The staff at Body Edge looks forward to seeing you this summer.
If you and and your family come visit us every summer, I can’t wait to see you walk trough the door again on Monday morning!!!  (psst, I’m the pregnant one)  =)

Safe Travels,

Essential Oil lover…

Lisa JI love using Young Living essential oils. I put a “Wow Water” mix together using Lemon, Lime, Tangerine, Grapefruit, and a touch of Ginger, and I keep it in a glass dropper bottle in my purse. One dropperful in my water bottle and I’m ready for whatever comes!  I use Lavender oil in my linen drawer to give my sheets a light and soothing scent, and I diffuse different combinations of oils all the time — there’s one for every mood. The more you use the oils, the more you learn, the more ways to benefit from them!

Essential Oils have recently been featured on many newscasts and online reports as a “trend” in alternative healthcare.  In reality, essential oils aren’t as much “alternative” as they are “natural”. Essential oils are volatile aromatic compounds extracted from plants through distillation or expression.  Essential oils are the life blood of the plant, much like blood is to our body system.   They are responsible for the repair and regeneration of new cell growth.  In ‘essence’, they are like nature’s healthcare.

The term “essential oil” comes from the contraction of the original name “quintessential oil” – stemming from the Aristotelian idea that matter is composed of elements – fire, air, earth and water and the fifth – spirit or life force.  Distillation and evaporation were thought to extract this life force from the plant. (from the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy)

Essential oils have a biological role within aromatic and medicinal plants.  These roles include:  attracting pollinators through aroma, preventing competing vegetation through chemical release, serving as defense against insects and other animals, and protecting the plant against other organisms that may threaten the plant.  Each chemical compound within the oil has a specific purpose. Essential oils are constantly changing their chemical composition, helping the plant to adapt to ever-changing internal and external environments.  Just as the plant uses essential oils for a variety of purposes, we can also use essential oils for aromatic purposes as well as for therapy and defense against environmental and biological conditions.

In general, essential oils are very helpful in positively impacting our quality of life, state of happiness and overall wellness.  They can beneficially influence stress levels, headaches, insomnia, chronic or acute pain, arthritis, enhance immunity, relax and sooth, relieving nausea, support hormonal balance, provide emotional support, assist healthy breathing and congestion, and much, much more…

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties.  Therapeutic grade essential oils are used aromatically, topically or internally.  Young Living Essential Oils have always been at the forefront of bringing this ancient tradition to modern users, introducing millions to a total mind/body wellness.
