Yoga in Destin
The URBAN ZEN Integrative Therapy Program comes to Destin, FL
Imagine a healthcare system where the patient is treated, not just the disease. A system where complementary healing modalities such as yoga therapy, Reiki, essential oil therapy and contemplative care are integrated with mainstream, allopathic medicine in a holistic approach to patient and self-care.
From New York, California & Ohio, Donna Karan and Urban Zen Foundation created the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy (UZIT) Program to meet this vision. A Philosophy of caring. And it’s coming to Destin FL this August!
Destin Pilates Center is hosting this prestigious national restorative Yoga workshop¬†on Saturday, August 2nd from 1:30p to 3:30p and the cost is $50. Space is limited so please sign up at www.destinpilates.com and register.
The mission of the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy program is to change the present healthcare paradigm, to treat the patient not the disease. Through partnerships, they are transforming patient care in hospitals, healthcare education in nursing schools, self-care in the home and¬†emergency relief in disasters.
Donna Karan¬†writes on her website www.uzit.urbanzen.org, that she¬†combined commerce and fashion with the creation of Seventh on Sale, alongside Anna Wintour, then CFDA President Carolyne Roehm, Calvin Klein, and Ralph Lauren. She has worked with Liz Tilberis, the editor of Harper’s Bazaar, Elizabeth Glaser, and other well known people in the fight against disease of all kinds but has played a huge roll in the fight against AIDS and¬†her husband’s disease, Lung Cancer.
With the¬†teachings¬†of Rodney Yee¬†and Colleen¬†Saidman Yee, the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program was born. Now the journey begins. Trainings are offered in Hospitals, Studios, and Colleges.¬†
Urban Zen classes are available on a drop-in basis in a growing number of yoga studios nationwide. Trained Urban Zen Integrative Therapists will guide the UZIT experience to help you manage stress and bring you into the present moment – a mini vacation for those with busy schedules.
