This course was created based upon the poem My Wish.
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.
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.
No. Men have participated and are welcome to attend.
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.
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!
In our first week we will…
Take stock. What’s working? What’s not? What’s in the gap between the two?
Learn a 5-minute energy routine to improve how you feel and your body functions

What would be possible if you made peace with food, your body and… yourself?
“I am more accepting of myself and engage far less in “self-hatred” over weight. It’s a relief not to weigh myself but once a month.”
“This class works from the inside out. I better understand my own personal relationship with food and nourishment thanks to the course.”
– Michael Matteson
“This class spoke to the ‘spirit’ of nutrition not simply the letter.”
“Much more loving attitude toward myself , my body, and the aging process.”

“The class is focused on creating body wisdom and self-control from a very deeply experienced place of self-esteem. That is the jewel you provided to me.”
