On November 6th at Creative Saints Loft in Hyattsville, Thomas will host “Ultimate Self Care Sunday.” It will be a day full of yoga, meditation, massages and experts from nutritionists, physical therapists and more.

“Within mental and emotional health, subject-matter experts will learn how to connect with their emotions through journaling, and ultimately have a great time tending to the self properly in a way that benefits them moving forward,” said Thomas.

“Subject-matter experts will also lead sessions that educate and inform individuals on how to create and maintain a healthy lifestyle, leading to less stress, anxiety, and depression, and greater happiness, balance, and positive outcomes,” she continued.

Thomas discovered her love for health when she took a holistic approach to treat a condition that caused hives when she was stressed. In 2020 she decided to create her non-profit in hopes of providing holistic mind-body services to individuals and communities desiring to create a healthier version of themselves.

The Ultimate Self Care Sunday will be held in Hyattsville from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is open to the public.
