Make Peace with Food for Women

Make Peace with Food for Women

How to end the binge-restrict / yo-yo dieting cycle and restore your relationship to food, your body, and self

by Brittany Haga, MA, Food + Body Image Counselor 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

(2 hour workshop, approx. 10-15 people)  $25

Each one of us has a unique relationship to food and our body. Somewhere along the course of life, that relationship may have become strained—a source of stress, confusion, maybe even war. We live in culture that promotes eating the “right” foods and avoiding the “bad” ones as an endeavor of high virtue. It is a culture that sets us up to have weight stigma, fear of fatness and shame around our food choices. Because of this, it’s very difficult not to develop some level of struggle with food and our bodies. Falling into a pattern of restricting and binging, chronic yo-yo dieting, having an incessant ‘food critic’ in our head, or believing we’re addicted to certain foods become all too common of experiences. You are not alone. 

Breaking free from these painful cycles and patterns is possible. Making peace with food is possible! The truth is, we are all born with the intuitive abilities to eat and move in ways that feel good. We don’t need an outside source to tell us the “right” way, the body will tell us if we give it a chance and remember how to trust it.

In a non-judgmental, supportive space come learn, connect and begin to explore the gentle, evidence-based approaches in which to restore your relationship with food, your body and yourself.

Ayurveda and Sleep: Rest, Relaxation, Deeper Sleep + Yoga Nidra
May

Ayurveda and Sleep: Rest, Relaxation, Deeper Sleep + Yoga Nidra

Ayurveda and Sleep: Rest, Relaxation, Deeper Sleep + Yoga Nidra 

$45

Problems with sleeping can be discouraging and even debilitating. Finding the right tools to get back on track can feel disheartening at times. It is possible to return to balance because Ayurveda offers tools and a practical approach to balancing sleep cycles.

Millions of Americans of all ages are affected by sleep issues. The mentality of “I’ll catch up later” or “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” has created an epidemic of long-term sleep deficit ranging from acute to chronic sleep deprivation. Our stressful treadmill lifestyle and the endless to-do list  are pushing many individuals to habitually defer sleep to get other things done. This, in-turn, causes a cascade of health problems and even more stress.

Scientists have extensively studied the functions of sleep for years, but some of the most basic questions about why we sleep have been difficult to answer. We spend roughly a third of our lives asleep. Our bodies crave sleep for a good reason: there are actually serious health risks associated with sleep loss. It can have complicated effects on us physically, mentally and emotionally. Sleep deprivation impairs judgment and cognitive ability, has negatively affects our moods, emotions and hormones, increases the risk of accidents and falls, decreases libido, increases depressive tendencies, accelerates aging, increases weight gain, and increases the risk of early death.

From the Ayurvedic perspective, the importance of sleep is a part of a wholesome (sattvic) lifestyle that contributes to our health and overall well-being. Without a balance in our life through proper nutrition, routine, and sleep, we fall victim to the root cause of disease and the aging process. While we sleep our bodies and brains are able to digest, detoxify and repair. It can also improve productivity and overall quality of life.

Ayurveda explains the three pillars to well-being as food (ahara), sleep (nidra), and regulated lifestyle (brahmacharya). Quality sleep acts as a rest button for our minds and bodies, enabling us to function at peak levels during our day. Sleep is important because it enhances our vitality of life (ojas) and is the coordinator between mind, body and the inner self–better than any medicine. These components of living are deep with in the practices of Ayurveda.

If during the day our diet, daily routine and behavioral patterns create imbalance, our sleep imbalance develops.

This class is for those who struggle with:

Sleep imbalance or problems falling asleepSleeping through the night without interruptions“The morning-after heavy feeling” or waking up un-refreshedWake up tired with an aching body and a lethargic mind

Topics that will be covered in this class are:

Basic information about AyurvedaHow sleep functions as a natural time for the body and mind to rest, reset, detoxify, and rejuvenateWhy balanced sleep is a staple of optimal health: “early to bed, early to rise”Ways to catch your Zzz’sDiet and lifestyle recommendationsSleep hygiene and supportive habits for sleepMaking the bedroom and your bed a sacred placeAdjusting the environment to meet your preferences and needs according to your constitution

Ayurvedic Nutrition and Cleanse: Nourish Your Body, Nourish your life

Ayurvedic Nutrition and Cleanse: Nourish Your Body, Nourish your life

Ayurvedic Nutrition and Cleanse: Nourish Your Body, Nourish your life 

$45

The Sanskrit word for digestive fire is agni. It is the very source of life and longevity. According to the Vedas, the Ayurvedic texts, it is said that a man is as old as his agni.  When agni is extinguished, we die. This teaches us that weakened digestion is at the root of every imbalance and disease.

Why cleanse? Unhealthy or irregular dietary habits, unmanaged and accumulated stress, unsupportive relationships, inactive lifestyles, and environmental toxins can challenge your body’s ability to digest food properly. A weak digestive system results in the accumulation of ama, or toxins, that cause imbalances, disease, and premature aging. Your digestion is a true reflection of your mental-emotional-physical state of balance or imbalance. A few signs of a stressed digestive system and accumulation of toxins are fatigue and lack of motivation, mental fogginess and forgetfulness, recurring infections and illnesses, and weight gain. Look at the questions below to see how you really feel. If you answer “yes” to more than half of the statements below, you may have poor digestion, and it is time to consider an Ayurvedic health makeover and cleanse.

When I wake up in the morning, I feel tired and unclear, and I need time to feel awake.In the morning, my tongue is often coated with a thick film.I feel or have obstruction/blockages in my body (constipation, congestion, fogginess).I often suffer from indigestion or heartburn.I tend to feel heaviness or fatigue in the body.I tend to feel tired or exhausted both mentally and physically.I get common colds (flues, sinus problems) several times a year.I tend to feel that my body is not functioning properly (breathing, digestion, elimination, other)I tend to feel lazy and unmotivated to do much.I tend to spit often or have a bad taste in my mouth.I often have no real appetite, and food really doesn’t taste all that appealing.

We will discuss the importance of digestion to build a deeper understanding and appreciation of an Ayurvedic lifestyle. This Ayurvedic workshop will introduce you to practical tools to ignite your digestive fire for a healthier, happier lifestyle. We will also go over the phases and practices for an effective cleanse.

This workshop will include:

Brief over view of the doshas: Vata, Pitta, and KaphaFood as medicine–how nature, climate, season, and stages of life play a part in healthHow balance can best be restored, improving wellness and vitalityGeneral daily practices: food combining, balanced food, and daily routine for a cleanse

Outline for the cleanse: (Outline may vary according to special needs and restrictions)

Phase #1: Clean it up! Start cutting out all processed foods, caffeine, alcohol, sugar, and excess. Three meals a day. Will include introducing basic food recommendations for the season, recipes, daily routine, and lifestyle practices. Portion sizing and timing of meals, what to notice when you eat, and foods that create energy, stimulate and dull our digestive systems.Phase #2: Tuning into the rhythms of life. Eliminate the “cut out” foods in phase #1. More specific recommendations for foods to prepare for Phase #3 and practices to create support.Phase #3: The Cleanse: Simple mono diet. Keep it simple.Phase #4: Clear out the ama and balance the body’s pH: the by-product of poor digestion and root cause of disease. Introduce foods that promote strong digestion, longevity, and build Ojas (vitality of life)Phase #5: Rejuvenation and vitality practices. Now it’s up to you!

**Attending the Ayurveda Life Style Workshop is recommended to know the basics of Ayurveda but not necessary to do the cleanse.

**Private sessions are an option for a more detailed cleanse according to your specific imbalances and constitution. Cleanse Phases will vary from client to client.

Full Moon Ceremony

Full Moon Ceremony

The Moon comes into fullness once again, illuminating the power of Libra, bringing the energies of balance into our lives. At this time of year, we seek balance between the inner and the outer world, balance in our relationships and balance of our own masculine and feminine energies.

Through the power of receptivity and the light of the full moon, we have the chance to reclaim and restore that lost sense of balance between the divine masculine and divine feminine. Through ceremony, we have the opportunity to connect to the light of the Moon and engage her power to heal, restore balance and illumine the darker aspects of self so that they may come to light.


Join us for a full moon ceremony and tea as we align with the energies of the moon for greater balance, and cultivating the divine union within.


Our Full Moon Ceremony is based on a Celtic/Druid Wicca tradition that is pure light and preserved in the old tradition of celebrating the seasons.


Pre-Registration: $25

At the Door: $35

How long should I wait after a loved one has passed on?

When there’s been a recent loss a loved one, wait until the emotions have remained stable for a period of time say a few months or so. When the loss is recent emotions are raw and it is emotionally exhausting for all. Various emotions that arise in real time come through and Alison cannot speak through your/loved ones tears- time is necessary to allow these feelings to move through her so she may communicate what she is receiving. Allowing yourself to grieve and stabilize you’ll be in a calmer place to communicate and receive. The solace it brings is invaluable and can assist with the grief, but at the same time it can be unsettling. Know those on the other side may also be grieving and processing their losses.

Make Peace with Food for Women

How to end the binge-restrict / yo-yo dieting cycle and restore your relationship to food, your body, and self

by Brittany Haga, MA, Food + Body Image Counselor 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

(2 hour workshop, approx. 10-15 people)  $25

Each one of us has a unique relationship to food and our body. Somewhere along the course of life, that relationship may have become strained—a source of stress, confusion, maybe even war. We live in culture that promotes eating the “right” foods and avoiding the “bad” ones as an endeavor of high virtue. It is a culture that sets us up to have weight stigma, fear of fatness and shame around our food choices. Because of this, it’s very difficult not to develop some level of struggle with food and our bodies. Falling into a pattern of restricting and binging, chronic yo-yo dieting, having an incessant ‘food critic’ in our head, or believing we’re addicted to certain foods become all too common of experiences. You are not alone. 

Breaking free from these painful cycles and patterns is possible. Making peace with food is possible! The truth is, we are all born with the intuitive abilities to eat and move in ways that feel good. We don’t need an outside source to tell us the “right” way, the body will tell us if we give it a chance and remember how to trust it.

In a non-judgmental, supportive space come learn, connect and begin to explore the gentle, evidence-based approaches in which to restore your relationship with food, your body and yourself.
