Welcome to The Tree House: Kids Healthy Cooking, Yoga and Reiki! My name is Julie Emerson. I am a Certified Healthy Hands Cooking Instructor, Certified Holistic Nutritionist, Certified Youth Nutrition Specialist and a Certified Kidding Around Yoga Instructor.
After I received my Holistic Nutritionist certification, implemented some healthy food options and noticed the positive changes we were experiencing, I developed a passion for sharing my knowledge and experience to help other families who want to live healthier lifestyles, whether they are on a budget, new to healthy eating, living with food allergies, etc.
In the cooking portion, I encourage a love for healthy foods that are fun, interesting and affordable. Kids are able to make the recipes themselves and they receive a personalized workbook/cookbook to take home so they can share the recipes with family and friends. Our cooking classes are fun, interactive and very hands on. We always begin and end with an active and engaging activity....something the kiddos love. It's great to get those wiggles out!
We know that yoga builds physical and mental strength, coordination, focus and concentration along with enhancing physical flexibility and boosting confidence. Why not make it fun with silly songs, stories, poses, guided visualization and more!
I truly believe the earlier that children discover healthy options (including food and exercise) the greater the benefit to their growing bodies.
Please like my Facebook page to stay updated on classes, events and fun recipes.
Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to meeting your little chef.
Have a wonderful day!
