What if I told you, you could eat your way to happiness?
Depression and anxiety are two of the most common mental disorders. What many people don’t realize is that our body and mind are connected. When our body is suffering, so is our mind. But when we are taking care of and healing our bodies, we are healing our mind too.
This workshop focuses on teaching how to make recipes that will be beneficial for someone suffering from depression or anxiety. The foods used in each recipe contain nutrients that are vital for a healthy brain. These are nutrients that relieve symptoms for those already suffering from depression/anxiety and help to prevent the development of symptoms for those at risk of developing depression/anxiety. We will identify what foods to avoid, what foods are beneficial, the nutrients that are found in these foods, how they support a happy and healthy brain, and how to use these foods to create different recipes.
“What we eat determines our health. But it also determines the health of the planet.”
If the discussion is environmentalism and sustainability, then where our food comes from needs to be one of the main topics surrounding this discussion. What chemicals have been used? How is waste from animal agriculture maintained? Animal agriculture is the main contributor to Green House Gas Emissions but instead of talking about this, we are told to car pool. Water systems are polluted, our air is polluted and this can all directly be linked back to our sources of food.
This workshop focuses on where are food comes from, how the process it goes through effects our environment and what we can do to make a change.
“My journey with Michaela was everything I hoped for and more! I was interested in eating more whole foods, establishing routines for myself where I could realign at the beginning and end of each day, and to generally to gain more awareness of my body and its needs; inside and out. I am typically awful at committing to schedules, changes, plans, etc. so I knew this was going to be a challenge. Michaela was nothing short of understanding, patient, and encouraging as she helped me through some of my obstacles. The meetings and online yoga sessions really held me accountable for sticking to my choice to evolve my lifestyle as well. I can very honestly say that my body awareness and health has never felt better! ”
“An absolutely amazing teacher, coach and human being. The three week nutritional coaching has been a huge life saver and positive life change for me. Never did I feel judged or discouraged, the patience, kindness and knowledge is a true blessing to all. The online yoga classes are my favorite! The perfect way to start or end a day, wonderful for all! A truly safe spot in a hectic world and time. I am blessed to have met you and I am honored for all of your help on my yoga journey, that I have you to thank for. Blessings and love”
“Michaela's teaching style really connects to guiding you through each pose by making verbal adjustments through the online yoga class. It's as if you're standing in the same room rather than watching through the phone or laptop. Being able to get out of my head and into my body during this time has really benefited my stress and energy levels and Michaela is a great guide who really brings you deeply into the experience.”
“Attending public yoga classes has always been hit or miss for me. With Michaela I get the full attention of an instructor who's taken the time to detail a practice tailored to my current ability. I cannot emphasize enough how different private instruction is from a traditional public class. I have the freedom to take things at my own pace, someone walks me through the nuance of the movements, and I have the comfort of practicing in own home. I highly recommend exploring this service for anyone who has an interest in holistic health, and especially for someone who is unsure of where or how to begin.”
“I had the most transformative experience in my class with Michaela. I’ve been lightly learning about yoga for years, I’ve attended classes for various flows and have flowed under several teachers who all did great jobs in teaching, but in just my first class with Michaela I learned subtle movements in what seemed to be positions I thought I’d gotten down that completely transformed how I see the practice. She breaks down the most intricate little details of each position, making it the most balanced and most transformative way to flow for every leveled yogi.”
“I had my first at home private yoga instruction by Michaela yesterday and loved it. She was very knowledge on yoga practice, a great teacher, and relaxing to be around. I find the individualized approach to be extremely beneficial as she was able to meet my exact needs, which do not always happen in a large group setting. I love that Michaela traveled to my home- it was super easy and made it more comfortable for me, as I do not always love the studio environment. I highly recommend working with Michaela and looking forward to having her return!”
“I had a semi private yoga session with Michaela and left feeling more relaxed and present than any other yoga practice I've had. The one on one attention is truly transformative. She does more than simply lead you through the movements; she tailors the lesson to your personal abilities, pushing you just far enough to grow your skills, and educates you on the history and philosophy of yoga along the way. Whether you're trying yoga for the first time or are well into your journey, I highly recommend Michaela.”
“Michaela did an amazing job! All of her recipes were great! She has an abundance of knowledge on vitamins and their benefits. I learned so much from her workshop. ”
“Michaela is very knowledgable of plant-based eating and the nutrients found in foods. She accurately explains vitamins and their benefits to the human body. I learned that many vitamins have a direct correlation with brain functionality.”
