This yoga therapy series is designed for those that suffer from chronic stress, anxiety; GAD, Panic Disorder, PTSD.  Explore self-healing modalities which are effective and profoundly liberating when combating the debilitating effects of anxiety. Learn breath work, meditation and gentle movement techniques that help to break the psychological, biochemical, and physical cycles that keep anxiety in your life, and to eventually overcome anxiety. A presentation of what happens in your mind and body while experiencing anxiety, and tools to “turn off” the fight or flight response, and “turn on” the relaxation response will be taught in the first class. A take-home program with daily exercises and lifestyle practices will be suggested. The more you know about anxiety and learn the tools to regulate it, the more empowered you become to create your own self-healing journey.

Eat Life!: Food Energetics for optimal living and great health
4 weekly meetings w Katherine Conte
Next session: Tuesdays Starting 9/19-10/4, 1-2:30, All That Matters, East Greenwich

This is the program that will change the way you relate to, look at and prepare food forever. If you are chronically ill, or overweight, or simply confused by all the mixed information in the market about nutrition and diet and don’t know what is right or “good” or “bad”, then you won’t want to miss this information-rich, hands on experience. The approach is natural, no dieting or diet trends, no supplement pushing. This program is offered twice per year, in Fall and in Spring, auspicious times to focus on the habits that make up a healthy lifestyle. Come with a willingness to learn & discover habits that might be an obstacle to your health and well being.
week 1: Big Picture of Health
You will be introduced to a very wide perspective on health & nutrition based on traditional principles and the most current nutritional science. You will develop a framework that will help you to evaluate what to eat based on season, personal condition/goals & the energetics of food.
week 2: Habits
Not only what we eat by how we eat has profound influence on how we digest, our cravings, overeating…
week 3: Understanding Acid Alkaline
The condition of the blood is the foundation of good or poor health. Learn what foods create optimal balance and blood quality.
week 4: Let’s Get Clear
The program finishes off with an optional 4-day, natural, non-supplement-based “cleanse” that enhances your body’s own detox abilities.

Register: $149 for 4 week series + program material, daily email contact, tons of recipes

The Science and Practice of Breath
Workshop with Katherine Conte
Saturday November 4, 1-3:30,  All That Matters, East Greenwich

Above all else, the breath is the most accurate marker for how we are living our life. Many of us are chronically tense, irritable, lack energy, experience insomnia, stomach upset and headaches. Could a possible solution be as simple as breathing better? Many experts think yes! Come learn more about your most intimate partner–your breath. Part presentation, part experiential, you will learn the anatomy of breath so you will understand the mechanics of breathing and explore common breath patterns. We will focus on the main breathing muscles and areas in the body that, when constricted, diminish the range and depth of breath. You will be guided through a series of postures designed to open and free breathing. If you take one workshop all year, let this be the one. Not to be missed.
