Eat for Life: Mindful Eating
If you’ve been on an endless rollercoaster of yo-yo dieting and self-judgement, it’s time to try a new approach. Reclaim a healthier relationship with your body by learning intuitive eating principles.
In Eat for Life (EFL), you will rediscover your natural delight in food and appreciation for your body. Through mindfulness meditation and yoga, you’ll learn to listen to the guidance of your body. Eat for Life is a non-diet approach that advocates non-judgment and self-compassion. Students re-learn to use intuitive cues to guide when and what to eat.
In EFL, You’ll Learn:
- Dr. Rossy’s* B.A.S.I.C.S. of Mindful Eating
- How to motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
- Mindfulness Practices like Eating Meditation, Sitting Meditation, Body Scan, Mindful Yoga
- How to cultivate a mindful eating practice for yourself
- Which common cognitive distortions interfere with our ability to eat healthfully
- The three tenets of food wisdom
- What the common barriers to being physically active are, and ways to overcome them
*Eat for Life was developed by Lynn Rossy Ph.D., author of ‘The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution’ and one of Mindful Magazines top ten Mindfulness books of 2016.
