INTUITIVE EATING WORKSHOP

Saturday, July 27th
2:30pm
$10

In this hands on interactive workshop, plant-based dietitian Amber Sewell-Green from Newtown Nutrition will be teaching you the skills on intuitive eating and how to recognize your bodies own hunger and fullness cues. In doing so, you can feel confident that you are eating the right amount of food for your bodies energy needs and daily activities and manage variability.

What will be covered:

* Introduction to intuitive eating core principles
* Introduction to basic mindful eating meditations
* Broaden your sensory experience and presence with foods to truly taste, smell and feel what you eat
* Feel fulfilled with less: how to achieve satiety and food satisfaction
* Freedom from restriction and food 'rules'
* Natural and intuitive weight management- non-diet approach
* Eat in a way your body loves, the science of food-body congruence
* How to recognize your bodies hunger and fullness cues and scales

Nutrition and eating is not a one-size fits all approach. The answers are within if you just learn to listen.

Feldenkrais is a kinaesthetic learning process that brings the mindfulness of meditation to how you move and feel.

You discover how subtle details in how you do something can make a big difference in how supported and connected it feels. It’s about reducing effort, honing ease, becoming calmer and more adaptable.

We explore a different focus each time and we're more interested in how you feel afterwards than whether you get it 'right'. As the flavour of each session can be quite varied it’s recommended you come along to a couple of classes consecutively to really sample the benefits you can receive from it. People often feel calmer, lighter yet grounded. You might notice changes in your mood, your spatial awareness, your co-ordination or your balance.
