Mood & Food

Harmonize your eating with Ayurveda & the Wisdom of Patanjali.

Work with challenging food patterns more skillfully with the Mahagunas of Ayurveda & Polyvagal Theory.

Discover safety cues that work with out-of-balance eating for you and your clients.

Use pranayama as a tool for settling your nervous system.

Explore shame and the right use of power safely.

Stay grounded when you or clients hit trigger places, and food patterns veer dysfunctional, to steadily support healing changes.

Give yourself and your clients the space to heal.


This course serves both professionals and lay people of all genders.
