Mindfulness for Weight Loss

Tuesday, March 09, 2021 at 12:00pm to 1:15pm

Virtual Event

Many people know how they “should” eat to lose weight and/or maintain weight loss - but they have a hard time maintaining a healthy diet & lifestyle. In this 7-week course, we explore the important role the mind plays in losing weight and how mindfulness (the ability to sustain present moment awareness, without judgment) and health coaching strategies (understanding why losing weight is deeply important to you) are the foundation for lasting change. Instructor Ashley Norwood uses her unique blend of training and experience to guide you through a journey of self discovery in relationship to food.

The 7 week program includes guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices, group dialogue and weekly home assignments.

"Ashley is a great instructor. I appreciate all of her knowledge and the tools that she has given me." — Testimonial from 2019 participant
