Description

Trying to lose weight can be very stressful. But what if it can be a fun, creative and soulful experience instead! What if there were no restrictions on how much to eat, and you could still lose weight!  

If you have struggled with too much weight, then come to this retreat and learn to keep it off from someone who lost 50 pounds 10 years ago and has been able to keep them off ever since.

The secret to a lighter you does not lie in another diet, but in making a few healthy changes to your lifestyle. Changes that can be both fun and delicious!  

And if you have been struggling with addictive eating habits, you’ll get helpful tips on how to stop the cravings from an experienced addiction counselor.

Most importantly, you’ll learn some important secrets about your own, unique body-type, which foods and herbs can best reduce your food and sugar cravings, and why having a few extra pounds may be nothing to worry about. This retreat is not about becoming skinny, but rather about feeling comfortable in your own skin, about feeling healthy from within.

Description

A one day workshop introducing the latest science on how to create super-immunity and slow the ageing process. The best way to do that, according to the latest scientific research, is to eat nutrient rich foods and herbs and practice intermittent juice cleansing, yoga and meditation.

According to Dr. Valter Longo, the world’s foremost expert on longevity, the digestive system needs periodic rest in order to reboot the immune system. In this program, you will learn how you can do that at home with simple lifestyle changes.

Since 70 percent of the immune system is in the digestive system, a strong digestion equals a strong immune system. But stress and a bad diet--the two main culprits in compromising the digestive system—can easily make us susceptible to disease.

In this educational workshop, you will learn how to improve digestion with certain super-foods and herbs as well as by reducing stress with yoga and a simple mindfulness and concentration technique.

The workshop will include:

Yoga exercises to improve digestion

Special meditation technique to reduce stress  

The latest research on immunity and longevity

Dos and don’ts checklist for colds and flus

How to perform intermittent juice cleanses at home

List of super-foods and herbs to boost immunity and slow ageing
