Join nutritionist and wellness consultant, Carly Schafer, as we blend the worlds of nutrition and mindfulness. As a society, nutrition and our consumption patterns can be scrutinized and a massive source of shame, guilt, confusion, and overall obsession. Many of us are bombarded with scattered information and advice on what is the ‘best’ approach, not realizing that a healthy relationship with food starts within.
With this workshop, you can expect to connect with a deeper understanding of how your thoughts can create new habits around the food you consume. We will focus on bringing awareness to how we approach our nutrition, learning the nutritional science behind a low-inflammatory diet, and exercises for when we find ourselves feeling out of control with our choices. Mindfulness meditation will be our prominent practice, along with breathwork, journaling, and take-home worksheets for your path forward.
This will be a safe space to explore your relationship to food, with an emphasis on acceptance and self-compassion. Providing you with the tools to tune into what your body needs at the present moment, you will leave here feeling empowered to make the best nutritional decisions for YOUR body.
