Wellness for Organic Farmers
At Living Roots we follow the Wholistic Model of Health which means that we understand that wellness and healing must address mind, body, and spirit if it is to be successful. We help the body to be healthy through eating organically and ethically grown foods, doing physical labor, practicing yoga and dance, and through massage. The mind is supported by engaging in expansive learning opportunities and embracing personal creativity. Our spirits are nourished through meditation, yoga and time with nature.
Wellness and Lifestyle for Organic Farmers is also a core part of our Farm School curriculum. In the field, students are taught how to use their bodies effectively and without creating unnecessary tension. Students have optional yoga and massage classes where they can create better health proactively and also balance an tension they have received from a hard day's farm work.
