Racing For Better Health

Posted on: March 27th, 2012 by joanna-maiolo

 

I am excited to announce BNC’s participation at the Frank Shorter RACE4Kids’ Health 5K race on April 15th, 2012, put together by Healthy Learning Paths. This organization shares many of BNC’s philosophies of integrating health and wellness and teaching healthy lifestyle choices to our students.

Healthy Learning Paths empowers children by teaching wellness strategies for success in health, learning, and life. They envision communities where integrated health and educational tools are broadly accessible to families of all backgrounds and income levels. These tools enable parents to effectively coach children as they navigate obstacles to achievement and good health. The final outcome is children acquire a natural and lasting determination to reach their full potentials.

Healthy Learning Paths is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

The Frank Shorter RACE4Kids' Health 5K honors Olympic Gold Medalist, Frank Shorter for his commitment to children's wellness and learning.  Proceeds benefit Healthy Learning Paths, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit partnership of medical and educational professionals, who recognize and teach the critical connections between health and learning for children's success. Your participation brings our Be Well, Learn Well© school wellness and educational community programs to more Colorado children.  Children must be well, so they can learn well.

Don't miss the Healthy Kids' Expo at the race where you'll find many resources, products and fun activities for kids. Also, be sure to stop by the BNC booth to find out more about our approach to healthy living!

The book includes coupons for local merchants such as Natural Grocer’s Vitamin Cottage, or for products like Nest Fresh Eggs and the delicious Justin’s Nut Butters. Chinook book also includes a wellness section that provides deals for stores like Apothecary Tinctura, which is a personal favorite   of mine that I feel everyone should visit and experience.

In Honor of National Nutrition Month…

Posted on: March 13th, 2012 by joanna-maiolo

 

It is especially exciting to be launching the Dance Tip Tuesday Blog this month, as March has been named National Nutrition Month!

One of our BNC Sponsor is the Lakeshore Athletic Club, and this month they are offering free “Nutrition Bits” lectures with Holistic Lifestyle Coach, Margi Resch. One of these lectures titled, “What is Metabolic Typing,” will be offered on Thursday, March 22 from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Lakeshore Lounge. Lakeshore Athletic Club’s Holistic Lifestyle Coaching is a unique approach to health, which views the body as an integrated system, striving to achieve a lifetime of overall wellness. This idea, viewing the body as an integrated system rather than different parts working separately, is something we at BNC believe in very strongly. This is especially true for the health of a dancer. The mind and the body working as one is a critical, if not one of the most important aspects of dance. If one part of the body is not functioning properly, the whole body will be affected.  Therefore, the body as a whole must be reevaluated and nourished accordingly.

Dance is an excellent amusement for young people, especially for those of sedentary occupations. Its excellence consists in exciting a cheerfulness of the mind, highly essential to health; in bracing the muscles of the body, and in producing copious perspiration.  ~Noah Webster

Dance Tip Tuesdays

Posted on: March 10th, 2012 by joanna-maiolo

 

Hi everyone!

I will begin by telling you a little bit about myself…

My name is Joanna, and I am a student at Metro State College of Denver. I will be graduating in May with a Bachelor of Science in Integrative Therapeutic Practices and a minor in Nutrition. Integrative Therapeutic Practices (ITP) is what the industry calls “ITP” to avoid that tongue twister. ITP is a fairly new major at my college and is furthermore the first school in the United States to actually offer it. ITP is designed to mix the best of conventional or Western medicine with a wide variety of alternative medicine classes. If you are interested in learning more about it, click on the link below to visit the Metropolitan State College of Denver website’s page for the program. And the nutrition minor, well, that’s just like it sounds--full of nutrition. I love everything that I have learned, and now through my internship with BNC, I have the opportunity to use my background in a real-world job setting. In January, I began my internship as BNC’s Nutrition & Health Intern.

 

This blog series called, “Dance Tip Tuesdays” is dedicated to combining my knowledge of nutrition, wellness and how it relates to the world of dancing. Each Tuesday, I will write about BNC philosophy and approach to nutrition and exercise tips as they relate to dancing. Feedback and questions are encouraged. Enjoy!
