ARE YOU READY TO TAKE A "ME DAY" FOR YOUR HEALTH?
We've created a one-day event all about supporting you and your sustainable, healthy, ethical journey! Think about how amazing you feel after spending time at the coffee shop hanging out with your friends comparing stories, sharing tips, and inspiring each other. (And drinking the coffee ; ) That's SHE Day, but even better! Why?
Because you'll leave in tune with how your body really feels and what your health priorities should be!
We get it. It's hard to carve out time for making changes and your health: Life's coming at you a million miles a minute and you can't do it all. There are deadlines, loved ones to take care of, the test is tomorrow, your boss needs the report, in fact, everyone needs something from you, and when you do try to make a change you are getting mixed messages from the media and every blog you read! Change can be hard! But we're in this together, and your health and healing is so important!
Plus, it is so much more fun to learn and make changes when surrounded by friends and an amazing group of like-minded, supportive women and leading experts who are passionate about the same things you are! Let's all dive into simple sustainable, healthy, ethical changes T O G E T H E R wherever we are at...C R E A T E a plan just for you using our proprietary system, and drink coffee, shop amazing women-owned businesses in the marketplace, do yoga, breath in essential oils, get inspired, and D O A L L T H E T H I N G S that make us feel as amazing as we deserve to feel!
CHECK OUT ALL THE GOODNESS PACked INTO SHE DAY!
Six education sessions from industry leaders to create wellness and balance in your busy life, ethical fashion that doesn't harm your health, easy ways to shop for good, and oh so much more.

If you have a lot of questions about your health, and you'd love a nice ice-coffee-goodness shot of momentum, this is for you.
Anyone who has hit a health plateau and is looking for new strategies to reclaim wellness! Jennifer Klotz, MS. RD, LDN will be sharing breaking research you won't want to miss.

Um, the swag bag is ah-ma-zing!

WE ARE LISTENING TO EVERYONE BUT OUR OWN BODIES
What works for the girls in your social media feed, your best friend or even your mother won't necessarily work for you! We are all bioindividually different, and SHE Day is all about honoring and getting clear on those differences, inspiring you to figure out what works well for you and your body, and helping you feeling your best!

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO THE EVENT?
We are going to try to have EVERYTHING covered for you! But here's a few things you do need to bring: a water bottle to fill up with the pure, filtered water we will have available at the event. Bring your yoga mat!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO THE EVENT?
You can wear whatever will make you the most comfortable! However, we will be doing a yoga class to close the day, and a few stretching sessions throughout the day, so we highly recommend taking the pressure off finding the perfect outfit and instead pick your comfiest, most moveable yoga or workout clothes.

We love Sudara's new yoga collection, Athleta's new fair trade options, and the cozy new bamboo leggings from Thought Clothing's collection!

All food provided will have options to accommodate the following allergies or diet preferences:
If you have extensive food allergies, email Jennifer@shechangeseverything.com to see if we can accommodate you!
