Workshops

March 3, 2018 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Spring is the optimal time to follow a nutrition reset plan and take control of your wellness. Join nutritionist Laura Farnsworth for an in-depth exploration of the benefits of the Elimination Reset Plan, including methods for successful implementation and careful reintroduction of potential food triggers. Individualized support is included to ensure your success.

Why consider an Elimination Reset?

Do you suspect that certain foods cause digestive upset or contribute to an inflammatory response? Food sensitivities are becoming more prevalent because of diets that contain processed ingredients with reduced nutrients and less diversity, primarily consisting of soy, corn, and wheat. Because food sensitivity testing can sometimes be inaccurate, the current “gold standard” assessment is the 3-week elimination diet followed by a reintroduction phase.

Workshop topics include:

· Differentiation of food allergies, food intolerances, & food sensitivities

· Benefits of the Elimination Plan

· Implementation instructions for the 3-week Reset Plan

· Reintroduction of common food triggers

· Food journaling to identify potential food sensitivities

· Next steps following the plan

· Individualized support through one-on-one coaching with Laura

Laura Farnsworth earned her Master of Science in Nutrition and Integrative Health from Maryland University of Integrative Health and currently practices as a Clinical Nutrition Intern. For more information, see https://Craving4Health.com

If you seek to balance your mood and experience more joy and connection, then this workshop is for you. The change from the cold, dry days of winter to the warmer, wetter heat of spring can have a profound impact on our sense of well-being. Most of us feel these changes in one way or another, whether by experiencing disturbed sleep, changes in digestion and mood, or heightened emotional symptoms such as anxiety, worry, or frustration. When we experience these symptoms, we experience it in our entire bodies: our muscles, our bones, even our vital organs and immune system. LifeForce Yoga, developed by Amy Weintraub, begins with the understanding that you are so much more than your mood, and the story of your life. Your birthright is a deep, blissful connection with all that surrounds you.

The practice of LifeForce Yoga will diminish your sense of separation, which is the literal source of anxiety and depression. The connection you feel to that which is most authentic within you and your connection to others will be enhanced. LifeForce Yoga is a practice that is highly adaptable to individual needs, so each person can move into a balanced emotional, mental, and physical state of equanimity and self-awareness.

In this workshop, you will learn and practice breathing exercises, easy postures, guided meditations, and other effective, evidence-based, mood regulating yoga practices not regularly taught in yoga class. Over time, these practices can lead to improved immune response and physical health.

Anyone can benefit from this practice, regardless of fitness level, flexibility, or prior yoga experience. Come away with the tools to release whatever blocks you from your sense of wholeness and connection. Improve your mood and welcome ease into your life.

Karen is a registered E-RYT 200 teacher through Yoga Alliance, a certified LifeForce Yoga practitioner, and a certified Silver Age Yoga for Seniors instructor. She offers private and group instruction in yoga for depression, anxiety, and stress management. In addition to her mentorship with Ann Hunt, she has studied with Amy Weintraub, Stephen Cope, Erich Schiffmann, and several other teachers. One of Karen’s most beloved mantras is “Loka samastha sukinoh bhavantu,” or, “May all beings be happy and free. May my thoughts, words, and actions somehow contribute to their happiness and freedom.” Her goal is to help guide you towards removing the obstacles that prevent you from seeing your wholeness.

“Chronic, low-level inflammation at the cellular level develops without pain and can lead to obesity, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. Inflammation is our body’s normal and healthy response to injury or attack on the immune system. Inflammation on the surface of the body is commonly described as heat, redness, swelling, and pain.”–Institute for Integrative Nutrition
