About this Event

The schedule is going to feel a little like this...

  • 11:00: Arrive and meet the Joriki and The Acupuncture Authority teams
  • 11:10- 11:40: Natalie and AJ will introduce you to the 5 Elements [Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood], how they balance each other out, and the way the elements influence your physical and mental health. Learn simple techniques to support your elements!
  • 11:40-12:00: Take a brief quiz to find out which element is the most influential to you – you’ll be receiving a personalized acupuncture treatment based on your findings!
  • 12:00- 12:45: Acupuncture time! Roll out your yoga mat and get comfy. We’re doing acupuncture community style, so get ready to relax and sink into your element. Think savasana but even more chill (is that even possible!?) Worried about needles? No problem! We’re here to make acupuncture accessible to everyone. If you aren’t quite ready for the leap, we have some cute acupressure bling so you can vibe too.
  • 12:45- 2:00: We’ll open up the space for shopping of inspirational Joriki yoga clothing collections with mimosas and refreshments! Mix & mingle, try on some cute outfits, and chat with your pals all about your elemental acupuncture experience.

Please bring a yoga mat and wear comfortable clothing.

Learn a little about your hosts...

Joriki

Joriki is a high-end brand of unique yoga clothes for women that is located in Chicago and made in the US. We are not just yoga clothes. We are a company that has both a voice and a personality. Each Joriki collection has a unique story behind its creation; and each creation is tied to an associated charity. It’s a full circle with us; inspiration leads to creation, and creation leads to giving back. We are a small company that tries to make a big impact on every piece of yoga clothes that we make - on the person wearing our designs and the people around us. Look Forward Give Back.

Joriki is the strong, individual power that arises when the mind unifies in Zazen concentration. This unique focus enables instinctive action. The yogi who has developed Joriki is free and in control of herself and her circumstance.

The Acupuncture Authority

AJ and Natalie are the co-founders of The Acupuncture Authority. They met in graduate school and became fast friends, bonding over their western science and biomedicine backgrounds, while still appreciating the beauty and art of Traditional Chinese Medicine. They're on a mission to make acupuncture more approachable and understood by getting out in the community and sharing their knowledge. They are excited to give people the opportunity to try acupuncture in a fun and non-committal way. They love to empower people to become active participants in their health, and recognize the inherent wisdom of their lived experience.
