WHAT TO EXPECT?
In this workshop we discuss the concept of Mindfulness with a specific emphasis on exploring its principles to enable us to make healthy food choices and ditch unwanted pounds and sugar cravings for good! Together we learn how to identify what the body really needs and discover ways in which we can savour, and find gratitude for, the foods that nourish us. As part of this we will also dive into the wonders of ‘energy foods’ to gain clarity on those which give us fuel and those which deplete both our body and mind.
Supporting the messages of this workshop will be two mindful Yoga practices. Our opening session begins with mindful breathing and a series of physical poses designed to draw attention and awareness to the physical body and breathe. Our closing session contains restorative and meditative poses to leave the body feeling revitalised, restored and fully present.
Included in the workshop is a healthy, wholesome and homemade vegan lunch – packed full of nutrients and lovingly made by both Rosaria and Claire.
Please join us to begin your journey towards optimum health and happiness!
