HEALTH AND WELLNESS
Invigorate and Masculate
As we continue to develop our understandings and progress our society, trying to see where all groups of people fit and their roles in those places, maybe the answer lies in looking at our roots -- primal and powerful. In the 9th annual Call of the Wild program hosted by Nhan-Esteban Khuong. the program will provide men with skills that have allowed for survival since their existence: brotherhood, a sense of identity, wilderness survival skills, and confidence. On Sunday, August 19th, the program will focus on the skill of archery.
K Stands For
Game time! Name a food, drink, and activity that are an emblem of being an Angeleno and all start with the letter K. Food: Kale, Activity: Krav Maga, Drink: Kombucha. While it might be a bit of a stretch to grow your own kale or teach yourself krav maga, you can definitely learn to make your own kombucha! On Saturday, July 14th Health-Ade Kombucha joins forces with LA Kitchen to teach the art of kombucha. Expert Joyce Chung will step through the history, benefits, and process of kombucha to educate and inspire other Angelenos.
Hiking is great: breathing the fresh mountain air as you tone your legs and glutes. But there's something missing -- Ah yes, a companion. Your friends are busy and you -- shockingly for an Angeleno -- don't have a dog. Well, how about a goat? On Sunday, June 17th, the Los Angeles Crest Creamery will be conducting a hike atop the Los Angeles Crest Forest. The walk will consist of Japanese shinrin-yoku and a breath-taking view. Best of all? The creamery's star goats will be guiding the tour!
