Nourish: Metabolic Typing - Putting the Philosophy into Practice
Jun 20, 2018 5:30 PM
On Wednesday, June 20 at 5:30pm join Holistic Health Coach and Personal Trainer, Jill Bennett, in her monthly series called Nourish.
Consider this course your personal Health Coach! While many courses fail to encompass the complexity of each individual, we'll explore lots of different aspects because health can be complex and you don't fit into a cookie cutter mold!
Last month we introduced the philosophy of Metabolic Typing, which is designed to help each of us discover what our bodies want in terms of proportions of fat, carbohydrate and protein. 'Counting Macros' is all the rage at the moment, but it's still someone else telling you what your body wants. Learning to listen to the wisdom of our own bodies is where I believe the magic lives. This philosophy helps us to learn how to identify the messages the body is sending and learning to listen to our own bodies, instead of believing 'someone' else knows best.
The practice of Metabolic Typing is like any other practice...we need to practice. We will go over the philosophy, use a tool of body language discovery, learn how to use the tool to make adjustments to work towards our body's own personal THRIVE zone. We will also learn to make friends with The Saboteur which is so important! If you missed last month, don't worry, you can still join us on Wednesday, June 20 at 5:30pm!
Over the course of these sessions, we will explore practical tools like:
- Metabolic Typing
- Health Foundations for Vitality
- Balancing Hormones
- The Stress Connection
- Detox and Gut Healing Principals
- Healthy Eating Philosophies
While venturing into even bigger ideas:
- Self Sabotage
- Eating Personalities and other psychology of eating ideas
- The LOVE philosophy - learning self compassion and self love
- Healing Emotional Eating, balancing biological and spiritual hunger
- Hidden Beliefs that may be acting out behind the scene to pull us away from our health
This monthly class will be held on a drop in basis. Join us and learn to listen to the WISDOM of your own body! Forget the myth of the magic program or meal plan! Empower yourself with the ultimate knowledge that YOU can be trusted to know what will work for you!
Price: $30 for Annual Members / $35 all others. The Nourish series will occur on the third Wednesday of every month at 5:30pm.
Inversion Workshop: Get Lucky & Learn

"The World changes when you change your perspective."
So...let's get upside down and explore inverted yoga postures including Headstand, Forearm Stand, Handstand and Shoulder Stand in this Get Lucky & Learn workshop. Free for annual members!
In this workshop you will be progressively guided through preparatory poses, technique, alignment, drills, modifications and variations of these iconic inversions.
No prior experience with inversions is necessary, although we recommend that students have practiced other yoga postures for several months. Seasoned practitioners can use this as a dedicated time to refine their skills and practice variations in their inversions.
