What is yoga for peaceful eating?

Yoga for Peaceful eating is a four-week course designed by Registered Dietitian and Yoga Instructor Pamela Malo that focuses on nutrition from a unique mind-body-heart perspective. Through weekly discussion, yoga, personal reflection and mind-body science we will discover that what is on our plate is only part of the story.

FAQ

 Is this course just for people trying to lose weight?

While some participants may wish to lose weight, the class is appropriate for anyone who wants a healthier happier relationship with food and their body.

 

Is this course just for women?

No. Men have participated and are welcome to attend.

 

What happens during class?

Each class begins with a gentle  and restorative yoga class and is  followed by nutrition discussion, reflection and sharing. Exercises and discussion are designed to cultivate self-awareness, see the “food story” we have created and connect with food  in a new and loving way.

 

What does not happen class?

This course is not about “what to eat.” I do not promote any products, cleanses, eating styles or diets during the course. You will realize how multi-faceted true nourishment is, and be empowered to learn what works for you. My goal is to help foster a connection with the best nutrition expert you have- you!
