Long Island healthy food and lifestyle personality Bhavani Jaroff  and Dr. Nikki Noce, the Yogi MD, are teaming up to offer a Yoga and Farm-to-Table Wellness Retreat on Sunday, July 27 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Jaroff’s iEat Green homestead in Old Westbury.

The one-day retreat will include yoga, relaxation, harvesting and a hands-on cooking class (participants will make the lunch) featuring gluten-free and vegan dishes. Lead by Jaroff, whose weekly radio program and public appearances make her a hero of the local healthy eating movement, and Dr. Nikki, whose background in medicine, food and nutrition inform her yoga and wellness consulting, there will be on-site harvesting and a menu that includes beet green and walnut paté, herb-encrusted tofu with blackberry sauce and raw lemon-lime cheesecake

We caught Dr. Nikki just as she was leaving for three weeks in the Amazon, from which she expects to return inspired and recharged, just in time for the retreat.  “I’m hoping participants will walk away with inspiration to live each day to the fullest, in a healthier, happier way, and that they will be motivated to incorporate some of the wellness gems they will learn because the positive results are inevitable!” she says.

You can find out more about Bhavani Jaroff , her workshops, radio podcasts and educational programs for children at her website iEat Green.  Learn more about Dr. Nikki at her website. For more information on the retreat write or
