AND MINDFUL EATING
- 11:30 a.m.
April 18-May 23: Six weeks: $96
Materials fee: $10
Imagine putting a halt to dieting altogether. Using mindfulness techniques,
this six-week course is designed to teach you to tap into your body and trust
that it knows when and how much to eat. Learn mindfulness techniques to combat
stress eating in the moment and to help reduce urges that lead to overeating
or bingeing. Guilt and shame have been shown to contribute to the vicious cycle
of dieting, falling off the diet, feeling guilty over it, and then overeating
again. This is no way to live. Learn to foster self-compassion and change your
eating habits and your relationship with food forever.
Each class will begin with instruction on the concepts of mindful eating along
with practical exercises. This will be followed with the yoga portion of the
class which will be appropriate for students of all levels. This popular and
successful program will help you develop a stronger mind/body connection and
move you toward an all-around healthier lifestyle. No new students after the
first class. A $10 materials fee by cash or check is due to the instructor at
the first class.
