Join this 4-week on-line workshop series – June 13, 20, 27, and July 11 from 6-7:00 p.m. (we will not meet the week of the 4th of July). The workshop is designed to guide you into better health through Intermittent Fasting and Food Exploration and is back by popular demand. All sessions will be live on-line. Each session will be recorded and made available the following day.

Cost is only $50 for the entire series. Learn about what is best for your body and how to incorporate easy strategies that will help you feel better, more aligned with the desired YOU, and as an added bonus, drop those pesky pounds that seem to stick around after the new year. This session will include tips on how to eat locally or regionally for optimal health and strategies for avoiding the traps of the Standard American Diet.

This session would not be complete without discussions on topics of acid reflux, elimination, energy, and sleep and the ways in which the foods we eat impact everything in our lives.

Modern Living Requires A Spiritual Reset

Have you ever needed a break? I mean REALLY needed a break? I have a solution. It’s called subtraction.

In Ayurveda, one of key prescriptions to a healthy life including a healthy clear and flowing mind comes from prana or breath. Prana coordinates our senses and mind, allowing us to become aware, flexible,  adaptable, and growth-oriented. It is the subtle energy of data behind all mind-body functions and is the catalyst for manifestation and evolution.

My prescription for prana or life-force for you is this:

Think about where you are in life right now. What do you need to clear to make space for the good things? What can go? What can be subtracted from your life? Just a few simple questions to get you thinking.

Tomorrow I will send out the first Spring Detox email to get everyone prepared. If you are in the Healthy Habits course or if you’ve signed up on my website, you’re all set. But if you have not and if you want to learn more about how to subtract from your life, clear the path, and add more space for the good stuff of life, sign up here today.

We will meet via video conference April 8, 15, and 22. Week one we ease-in. Week two we dive deep. Week three we ease-out. And week four, April 29,  we will gather at RedBloom Yoga and practice Kitchen Sadhana ~ a practice of preparing and batching your kitchen to better nourish you and your family. Make your kitchen your hub.

This is the good stuff of life. Make space. Subtract. Prana!

For the Health of It, Alison
