Mondays 5:30-7:15pm, September 10 – October 29

Eight week series with Jessica Blanchard

 This series will combine tools from yoga, ayurveda and western nutrition to facilitate a balanced approach to weight management. This program is applicable to those wishing to lose weight, gain weight or simply improve their diet to feel better. Learn how to lose weight at Keto Hack Diet.
Each class will explore yogic breathing exercises, yoga for your Ayurvedic type and nutritional guidance from Ayurveda and Western Science.  We also use a private Facebook group to share recipes, articles and general support during the course.   This session will include a special Healthy Eating Cooking Class at Whole Foods Market.
Participants from the first session noted that their tastes had changed; they learnt to appreciate the abundance of foods that build healthy bodies.  One participant went from craving pizzas to quinoa!
The program will include:
Yogic tools – stress management,  breathing exercises, cleansing techniques, yoga postures, and meditation
Nutritional guidance – each week focusing on a different area of dietary awareness
