Wellness Unlocked: Living Well In Winter

Fear not, Winter can be a great time of year for rejuvenation and restoration and this podcast episode will tell you how!


In this very first episode, Third Space Wellness unlocks some of the keys to having a great and easy winter. Hosts Joy Andrews, Rachel Brumberger, and Sam Dublin are the co-owners of Third Space Wellness in Downtown Silver Spring. Joy and Rachel are licensed acupuncturists and wellness consultants/educators. Sam is a yoga teacher and fitness instructor. We are bringing our experiences as entrepreneurs, teachers, wellness coaches, worker bees, spouses, friends, and pet lovers to the table.

In this episode we discuss what can you do to stay ahead of the cold curve: It’s all about the kind of sleep, food, exercise, and social calendar that makes sense during hibernation season.

We’re giving you some product tips too (yay SmartWool!) and addressing questions from the community which cover more on sleep, staving off back pain at your computer, and healthy high protein snacks for work and home.


Warning: We wellness professionals happen to enjoy the occasional glass of wine during some recordings, so hilarity may ensue.



More on your hosts and keeping in touch:

Joy is a ginger from Guatemala, is a podcast junkie herself, has an obsession with colors, and is awesome at calling things like she sees them. She has a gift for saying “no”. In her acupuncture practice she is amazing at asking questions that help people unlock their own wisdom. Connect directly via twitter @AcupunctureJoy.

Rachel is a Maryland local who hates crabs and Old Bay Seasoning. She has a maiden name so common that she’s sometimes been mistaken for Lisa Simpson’s imaginary friend Rachel Cohen. In her acupuncture practice she rocks at helping validate people’s experiences so they can see themselves as normal and heal from there. If you want to connect directly hit us up on twitter @ThirdSpaceWell #TSWRachel and Joy or Sam will get the message to our behind-the-times social medial girl.

Sam is America’s freshest new citizen with a taste for milkshakes and has cheekbones that make everyone swoon. In her yoga and fitness classes she uses humor to instill a sense of empowerment (and sometimes fear) in participants no matter whether they are beginners or professional athletic ass-kickers; everyone leaves more fit, more calm and having had a few laughs. Connect with her directly via twitter @yogitastic.

A DC Native, people say I'm rude and abrasive; I say I'm passionate. I've been working in marketing since 2005. My brothers and I paid Geppi's rent through the 80s and 90s. My relief at an indoor wavepool never materializing in Silver Spring is balanced by my disappointment that City Place has dozens of shuttered storefronts. I love what you've done with your hair.
