So what’s included?
This programme includes 6 short pre-recorded lessons that you can listen to in your own time and at your own convenience.
The subject matter you will learn includes:
Lesson 1 Use Intuitive Eating principles to boost your energy.
I will talk you through each of the principles, giving you ideas and challenges as your begin your journey. In this lesson, we will focus on a few of the principles, because as eager as you are to do them all today, taking things slowly is best. We will talk about diet culture, honouring your health by learning to eat according to hunger, fullness and satisfaction.
Lesson 2 Indulge in some self-care.
Why is it that women can support, fix, rescue everyone else in the world, but when it comes to looking after ourselves we get stuck. We won’t be looking at looking after yourself in the conventional way of busying yourself with beauty appointments, we are going to learn in this session the value for slowing down, how your body responds, how your health benefits, how your eating patterns will change.
Lesson 3 Let’s talk about “normal’ eating?
Learn the typical traits of someone who rocks up to a fridge, creates a meal, eats, enjoys and moves on with life. We will be looking at the triggers for your erratic eating patterns and providing you with 3 actionable tips to practice eating more freely. You will get an understanding of the different types of hunger; physical, emotional and cravings.
Lesson 4 Manage those thoughts.
I know that part of the struggle to change behaviour is the inner voice in there that gives you heaps of flack every time you try and fail. Bringing compassion and kindness into your eating is a catalyst for change. I will teach you the most exciting tool I have learned yet to manage that nagging little voice inside and you will see it works.
Lesson 5 You are POWERFUL.
This is it, this is the thing I want you to learn more. In this lesson you will delve into the whole phenomenon that you are the best expert of yourself. You will learn why it’s so important to reflect on your past experiences as a learning tool rather than a stick to beat yourself up with. You will identify your strengths and coping mechanisms in times of challenge and learn how to use these as your build your peaceful relationship with food.
Lesson 6 Practicing Gentle Nutrition.
In this lesson, I will share with you intuitive eating tools that will allow you to once and for all stop the fighting with food. You will discover what it means to truly give yourself unconditional permission to eat…ALL foods. You know that advice you’ve been given to keep the foods out of the house, well we will do a fun exercise allowing you to start bringing even your most feared food back into your cupboard.
There ain’t no learning without effort, so I have created lots of worksheets for you to reflect, challenge and grow your thoughts, beliefs and values around eating. In the end you will have learned how to speak to yourself in the way you would love your child to speak to herself. YOU WILL BE PART OF THE STORY OF CHANGE THAT IS UNFOLDING. It’s never too late change the story you are telling yourself, the story you are conditioned to believe. You can change.
2. YogaBreathing – Water, Whiskey and Coffee breath:
Think of your breathing as either water, whiskey or coffee. Water breath is balancing, always a good choice, day or night; and it can be used freely without a worry. Whiskey breath is down-regulating, relieves stress, and can help put you to sleep. Coffee breath is up-regulating, wakes you up, and prepares your body for activity and exercise. Your breathing pattern is defined primarily by your rate of breathing, meaning how fast or how slowly you breathe. In todays busy world we breath at slightly-elevated breathing pattern than is “normal”. You can affect your breath and your nervous system response in a matter of minutes simply by changing your breathing rate.
I teach you Yoga Breathing for stress relief, digestion, energy, and deep sleep. You will learn the above three breaths and get amazing health results.
I will run a live coaching session each week after you have had the chance to listen to your learnings. And because I want you to get the most from this money but more importantly time investment I will encourage you to submit your exercises within our private Facebook community, offering support throughout the week. The weekly coaching sessions are an opportunity for you to be coached in a group setting, to ask questions and clarify your thoughts on all that you are learning. They also promise to be light hearted, interactive and fun. These will happen on Wednesdays at 7:30pm from November 3rd and will be one hour long.
4. Downloadable stuff:
There will be lots of other tools and resources available to you so that you can download them and continue your journey in your own time. These will include exercise to help build trust in your food choice, dismantle the food rules, learnings list, dealing with life’s challenges without food, design your own personal coping mantra and more.
5. Learning from others:
As I have said many times before, I can learn the academia, I can learn from my professional experiences. I have learned and continue to learn from my experience. But I cannot learn it all. I encourage you to take your learnings from as many sources as possible so that you can form your own opinions and beliefs from as many sources as possible. There will be 2 live specialist conversations during our time together.
6. Facebook Group Access:
You will learn so much in our 6 weeks together, I know that. And your brain can only take in so much that is why you will be given 3 months free access to my private Facebook Group where we can continue your learning and journey together as a group. This group will be interactive with new learnings and accountability prompts.
