Local practitioners to host virtual health event

The weekend of May 16-17 will be packed with online workouts, inspiring panels, happy hours, guided meditations, foam rolling clinics and more. Healthy at Home 2020 will be led by favorite fitness and wellness influencers in Sisters.

Every month, Sweat PNW hosts a special event to raise funds for a community member or family who is in need of financial assistance. This month, Sweat PNW has joined forces with several other fitness professionals, physical therapists, psychiatrists, nutritionists and more in the community to provide a virtual wellness weekend for the community.

Loryn Cummins, LPC, will be leading a 30-minute connection integration activity. Cindy Tintle of Sisters Athletic Club, Ashlee Francis and Meghann Harty of Sweat PNW, Kari Anton and Cindy Miskoweic of Life.Love.Yoga. and Courtney Echternkamp of Beloved Bod will be leading home workouts. Audrey Tehan will be discussing home gardens and Laurie Francis will be demonstrating which essential oils you can use to help your garden thrive. Ann Griffin will run a foam rolling clinic.

There will be therapists and psychiatrists leading participants through guided meditations and teaching how to cultivate a centered presence.

“These are just a few of the knowledgeable individuals in this community who have offered to produce a live online feed of their talents for others to do in the comfort of their own homes,” said organizer Ashlee Francis.

“This event is donation-based and you can attend as many or as few of the live video workshops as you like. All donations will go to the Sisters Food Bank and can be made out to the food bank directly or to Sweat PNW so we can keep a running tab of how much money was collected.”
