SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — The Shepherd University Foundation officially launched its new initiative, Women for Shepherd University, on April 13 with a Women and Wellness workshop held at Shepherd’s Wellness Center.

The Women and Wellness workshop offered attendees the choice of three 40-minute sessions along five tracks. Participants were able to sample essential oils and all-natural skincare products, participate in a cooking demo, tour the Wellness Center, or practice basic mat work as led by a certified Pilates instructor, among other activities, all while engaging in a comfortable social environment

Workshop sessions included “The Pilates Guarantee: A New Body in 30 Sessions” led by certified Pilates instructor Diana Gore of My Pilates Place in Boonsboro, Maryland; “Restore, Renew, and Heal Yourself with Essential Oils and Natural Skin Care” presented by Brenda Robinette of Be Young Essential Oils, and Susan Winters, a licensed esthetician and certified skincare specialist with M’lis products.
