SPEAKERS

Colleen Henegan, Dragonfly Hot Yoga

Yoga 9:15 – 10:15 am CT

In my classes, I like to connect fitness with inner reflection, which allows my students to advance in both their physical and spiritual practices. I craft yoga classes that build the strength, balance, and flexibility to help my students thrive both on and off their mats. I encourage my students to take chances, test their limits, breathe deeply, smile, and have fun. I work to build a warm, safe, relaxed atmosphere, which allows my students to be vulnerable and engage in introspection. I found yoga at a challenging stage of my life, and my yoga practice has helped me persevere through many more. I feel honored and privileged to share the gift of yoga with others.

Eliza Greenman is a fruit explorer, horticultural historian, and designer /implementer of agroforestry plans that integrate livestock (and humans) into tree crop systems/orchards. Outside of her farming endeavors on leased land, She is currently looking to purchase a location (in Virginia) to plant a tree crops repository for the Southeastern US.

What are Nutshells and how do they work?

Many people share images or slides of their farm/project/plants as a part of their Nutshell talk and many feel inspired to share in the moment without visuals. At the beginning of the session, we’ll give a call for nutshells and you can add your name to the chat indicating you want to have a turn. If you want to share a few slides or images (no more than 10), have them up on your computer so you can share your screen. You are also welcome to hold up actual photos if you have them, or choose to not show photos and just chat with everyone. We suggest keeping it simple!  This year, our goal is to enable our community to share what worked (and what didn’t); dialing down the tech (and efficiency) while dialing up the networking. Our moderator will let you know when you are on deck to present so you can prepare. This is a fun, flexible, and no pressure way to connect and share.

Thank you to our sponsors!
