Three Pillars of Weight Loss
Mindful eating can transform your relationship with food. Food becomes fuel for an energetic body and happy life. An unprocessed foods diet can provide immediate structure to your eating with minimal effort. With such a plan, you transition off of addictive processed foods and onto wholesome, fresh foods. This can help with motivation as you experience weight loss without feeling hungry or deprived. We help you experience a way of eating that does not involve deprivation and restriction, but honors the needs of your body and mind. We help you transform your relationship with food by experiencing how satisfying -- and easy -- it can be to eat nourishing foods. Methods to transform your diet include grocery store tours, meal prep consultation and meal delivery services.
The research is clear: weight loss is a lifestyle issue. “Diets” are a thing of the past. The most effective way to transform your lifestyle is through the practice of mindfulness in a group or individual setting. Mindfulness helps you see cause and effect relationships, and undo mindless, automatic behavior. We offer supportive group counseling, or individual coaching to help you apply mindfulness to your daily life. Working with another human being who truly cares about your progress provides support, encouragement, problem-solving, and accountability. We focus on incremental and sustainable change, not simply short term results. Our methodology is highly individualized and targets emotional eating, a key cause of weight gain. When you work with us in a group or individual setting, you will learn how to replace a “dieting mindset” with a mindful, intuitive eating approach.
Exercise is crucial for good health and stress reduction. Our center offers a full array of mind/body disciplines that combine mindfulness with exercise, because exercise + mindfulness supercharges habit change. We have seen our most powerful results in members who embark upon a regular practice of mindful exercise. We offer yoga, qi gong, tai chi, and aikido: all potent, time-tested systems to transform body and mind. We offer affordable group classes as well as private instruction at our studio or in your home. We are skilled at using these modalities to help increase body awareness and decrease stress, anxiety, depression, compulsive behavior and other issues that contribute to emotional eating.
