Sky Island Natural Foods, Idyllwild’s organic emporium, is staging its fall health and wellness fair.

The fair features a diverse range of health practitioners from many disciplines, each offering mini-sessions or explanations of their healing art.

“Our fall fair is a great chance to sample local offerings and learn valuable skills to improve your health and well being,” said Sky Island’s Kelly Johnston-Gibson.

Johnston-Gibson highlighted opportunities for attendees to experience networking, bodywork, massage, lifestyle coaching, as well as classes in yoga, movement arts and Japanese healing arts.

Currently scheduled on the back patio are classes in yoga, belly dancing and Jin Shin Jyutsu.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient practice that harmonizes the energy in the body by application of one’s hands to specific locations on the body. This allows for blocked energy to once again flow freely. It can be practiced on oneself and on others.

Sky Island is still assembling its list of vendors and practitioners. The fall fair promises to provide valuable interactive opportunities to learn about and experience optimum health, wellness and healing practices. Currently scheduled are Tricia Pilkington, Present Essence Mountain Energetics; Between Two Pines wellness retreat; Spirit Mountain Retreat Center; Quantum Energetics Structured Therapy; and Idyllwild Therapeutic Massage.

The fair is free to the public and takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, at Sky Island Natural Foods in Strawberry Creek Square, 54423 Village Center Drive.
