The reasons we’re offering this seminar are written into our values.

We value diversity and inclusivity, so we strive to build a positive, open, and supportive community by collaborating with businesses like lululemon athletica and Green Moose Fuel. We value education, so we want to provide that community with an accessible way to learn about health and performance. And we have pledged an allegiance to science, so we want to spread knowledge that’s derived from peer-reviewed research and field experts.

By allowing us to accomplish these goals, our seminar allows us to carry out our values. And carrying out our values is why we exist in the first place.
