Healthy Living Festival Preview: Yoga, Snacks, Supplements & More
There’s no one way to live a healthy lifestyle and that’s why Columbus Underground is bringing back the Healthy Living Festival for the third year! You can explore tons of local businesses focused on wellness, all in one place. This year, we’re getting out of the city and getting outside at Jorgensen Farms on July 22. Guests of the event will get to spend the day exploring the beautiful property, tasting local healthy fare, chatting with artists and makers, snapping countless photo ops and enjoying free outdoor fitness classes. We’re so excited about the line-up of 30 plus vendors, we can’t help but share! Check out a few of them below and what you can expect at the event.
“PAI” is the Thai word for ‘go,’ as in ‘go’ and do what is best for you – your mind, your body and your spirit. At PAI Yoga, they embrace that mentality. At their two local studios they offer various fitness classes and workshops to provide refuge, relaxation and wellness for all those who attend. Kicking off our day of fitness at the event, PAI will be providing a free 30-45 minute start yoga flow out at in the Jorgensen Farms Flower Fields.
Propello Life isn’t making your average supplements. Started by two brothers aiming to promote healthy, holistic lifestyles, they are making supplements for everyone. Whether you are a weekend warrior, yogi, tri-athlete, CrossFitter, professional athlete, adventurer, or an on-the-go parent chasing your kids around, their products will fit easily into your healthy, natural diet. Their supplements are free from GMOs and artificial ingredients and are full of simple, sustainable and authentic nutrition. Guests of the event will have the chance to try their Aminos and PreWorkout products, plus vegan protein muffins and protein Buckeyes!
Copia Farm shines the light on egg production and encourages everyone to know their farmer! Copia is an Eco-Farm designed with nature, producing truly pasture-raised, non-GMO eggs. All their chickens live outside, on pasture, and under the sun. This produces the healthiest egg possible, for the chicken and for you too! At the event, you can expect your farmer! Caitlin from Copia will be showcasing their pasture-raised eggs and meats. Stop by to say ‘hi’ and get egg-u-cated on the differences between a good egg and bad one.
Botanibites are herb-infused paleo mini muffins. They are free of gluten, grain, dairy and soy but also full of flavor, uniqueness, and purpose. What was at first a series of kitchen experiments soon transformed into a passion of Sasha’s, the founder of Botanibites. Sasha has always enjoyed experimenting and learning about food, wellness, herbal medicine and the like – and as a wellness enthusiast and herbal pharmacist, dietary concerns and nutrition were always key topics of conversation. Guests of the event will get to sample four flavors of Botanibites: Matcha Mint Trip Energize, Maca Marble Uplift, Lemon Floral Unwind, and Goji Lavender Bliss. Choose your flavor, or function, to bite in and bliss out!
Freedom a la Cart deliciously combines flavorful cuisine with life-changing employment and support to survivors of human trafficking. What started as a food cart to create job opportunities, has blossomed into a thriving box lunch and catering business. They serve fresh, made-from-scratch food, created with high-quality ingredients, topped with exceptional customer service. Freedom a la cart can nourish the body and feed the soul by delivering a delicious culinary experience they refer to as “cause cuisine.” At the event they will be serving up Peanut Butter Granola Bars, Sweet Potato Salad, and Ginger Lemonade (all gluten free and vegetarian!).
