WELLNESS RESET: A NUTRITION AND YOGA RETREAT
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Wellness Reset is a holistic workshop that integrates contemporary nutrition education and body based therapies with the ancient wisdom and philosophies of yoga and mindfulness. Connections between mind, body, heart, and spirit open participants to discover, or re-affirm, the pathways to their health and healing journey.
Located on a scenic 90-year-old restored historic dude ranch, Rio Retreat Center, is set in a beautiful and peaceful desert oasis. Holding Wellness Reset on this gorgeous property offers a unique opportunity to replenish, restore, and reset your body and soul through nutrition and yoga.
Dietary change is hard, and the road to wellness is never one that is without bumps and detours. Finding the best methods of fueling your body is worth it. Your health, your weight, your mood, and your happiness can all be improved through nutrition.
Wellness Reset will take you on a nutrition journey to help YOU determine the path that fits the best with your lifestyle and preferences.
The nutrition portion of this workshop will include:
• Review of the connections between food and mood
• Analysis of participant food diaries and recommendations
• Food demo’s and meal prep
• Tools to adopt an anti-inflammatory dietary approach
• Exploration of the trendiest diets offered today and analysis on whether they actually work
Wellness Reset will also integrate the ancient teachings and philosophies of yoga with a lens of modern day living. Participants will celebrate their intentions and connect with the goal of finding peace within and the world around them. Various practices will allow each individual to find one’s path to abundance and wholeness.
Our innovative body approaches invite you to move towards living in your body by incorporating these ancient yoga teachings and insights of modern science; Heart Rate Variability, balancing the nervous system, and compassion practices. Our journey includes activities to connect deeper to oneself and the world around you via mindful movement, various breathing exercises, sound healing, discussion of the yoga philosophies, and creating dail practices.
This workshop is co-facilitated by Kristin Kirkpatrick, best-selling author, dietitian, and Senior Fellow of The Meadows, and Lara Rosenberg, OM3 Yoga Founder and Instructor who encourage you to just come as you are! Be open to the opportunity to connect with your breath, feel your body, let go of stresses, and observe what happens. As Gandhi said, “be the change you wish to see in the world.”
