GLOW festival set for Saturday

WOODSTOCK – The second annual GLOW – Gals Living Out Wellness – festival will be held Saturday in Quicksburg.

Rachel Haddad, public relations director, said the purpose behind the event is to give women throughout the community a chance to come together and take time to prioritize their own physical, mental and spiritual health.

The event will feature speakers, massages, fitness breaks as well as vendors.

Pam Murphy, executive director of the Shenandoah Community Health Clinic, notes in a news release that women often focus on the health needs of family members while ignoring themselves. “This is an opportunity for women to gather with friends, sisters, and co-workers for some fun, pampering and to learn techniques for staying physically, emotionally and mentally healthy”

Alice Mullerweiss, director of human capital and training with Atlas Research and a combat veteran, will share techniques for developing goals for the “best-self” care possible including goal development and sustaining positive self-care.

Alyssa Bryner, a certified holistic health coach, personal chef and cooking instructor, will share the healing powers of an anti-inflammatory alkaline diet and how to improve overall wellness. She will also discuss ways to reset digestion for optimal immune-boosting heath.

Various fitness instructors will also lead short sessions in chair aerobics and qigong.

Local retailers will be onsite selling a variety of items including jewelry, skincare and clothing products.

The event is hosted by the Shenandoah County Free Clinic and Shenandoah Dental clinic. Sponsors include IHeartMedia, Q102, the Northern Virginia Daily, and Valley Health.
