Chicago, IL—August 3, 2020—Associa Chicagoland and Associa Arizona recently partnered to host a series of virtual events to engage their clients and provide an outlet for continued health and wellness.
The first event, a yoga webinar led by Carrie Temkin, walked through a sequence of yoga poses that taught participants to embrace a sense of calm amidst the feeling of stress, anxiety, and tiredness. Ms. Temkin is a certified yoga instructor with over eight years of experience at Total Body Yoga. During the virtual session, she instructed participants in using breath and movement to explore balance, building strength, and gaining flexibility.
The second webinar event was a dinner and dessert cooking demo with Marti Sullivan from Sweet Basil Gourmetware & Cooking School and chef Terri Milligan from Chef Milligan’s Culinary classroom. Together, the culinary professionals demonstrated how to prepare an entrée of balsamic maple-glazed salmon with jeweled Moroccan couscous, followed by a key lime mousse parfait for dessert. Ms. Sullivan opened Sweet Basil Gourmetware & Cooking School in 1993, specializing in hands-on cooking classes. In addition, the business is open for lunch through the Sweet Basil Market Café and sells over 9,000 different culinary products, merchandise, and gifts. Ms. Milligan’s wide-ranging culinary career has included owning a catering firm and The Inn at Kristofer’s, working as a cooking class instructor and food writer, heading her culinary YouTube channel, and getting featured on the Food Network and Wisconsin Public Radio.
