Eat mindfully. Love your body. Live consciously.

Yoga pose

ENROLMENT IS OPEN! Next session starts September 5, 2017!

What would it be like…

  • to look yourself in the mirror and appreciate and respect what you see? To want to nourish and care for your body, instead of “shoulding” on yourself and grasping for control? To feel comfortable in your own skin and to have a level of confidence that allows you to not worry so much about what other people think?

 

  • to be able to go to a party and actually enjoy the food on the table? To be able to have all of your favourites in an intentional way and know that you’re not “blowing off your diet?” To be able to focus on the fun you’re having and the good company around?

 

  • to have a balanced mindset toward health and wellness, instead of feeling like you’re “all-in” one moment and “falling off the wagon” the next, only to start that cycle again?

 

  • to live an inspired life, awakened to your dreams and desires? One that’s about way more than criticizing your body and obsessing about food (or neglecting it altogether)?

Wouldn’t it be AMAZING?

But right now it might not be that way. In fact, if you’re reading this, I can almost guarantee it’s not that way. Right now, you look in the mirror and want to run or change or fix… or you avoid mirrors altogether. You feel uncomfortable in your own skin. You feel frustrated by the fact that you can’t seem to stop obsessing about your body or weight and comparing it to everyone else’s. Food isn’t just food to nourish and enjoy; how you eat predicts whether you’ve been “good” or “bad” that day and how “good” you need to be tomorrow. You sometimes miss out on fun and connection because your mind is somewhere else. You totally get sucked into the “all-or-none” mindset traps and feel pretty stuck, stressed, and sick of this being your reality. It feels like there should be more to life.

There IS more to life. Deep down I think you already know that hating your body is not going to get you one that makes you happy. Determining your worth from the number on the scale or what goes into your mouth that day is a recipe for disaster. And the “all-or-none” eventually gets you none. 

It doesn’t have to be this way. You deserve to have a body you appreciate, a peaceful relationship with food, and a life that turns you on!

And with all that said, I want you to know that you’re not alone with how you feel in this moment.

yoga for mindful eating and living interview seriesI’m Casey Berglund. I spent the better part of my life having a hate-on for my body – always thinking it should look different. I was a total perfectionist and people pleaser, taking on one thing after another in an effort to prove to everyone else that I was good enough. And although I knew a lot about food and nutrition as a Registered Dietitian, I didn’t really have a healthy relationship with it. Food controlled me and how I lived.

It wasn’t until I started seriously practicing yoga that my relationship with my body and food started to transform.

Yoga helped me let go of my perfectionist mentality and made me more mindful and balanced. It allowed me to connect with and trust my own unique inner wisdom. It helped me learn to love my body {and my body transformed in the process}, to manage my stress, and to feel in charge around food.

I started yoga for the workout, and I stayed for everything else that yoga brought to my life.

And now, I want to share the power of yoga with you. I developed Yoga for Mindful Eating and LivingThe Course, an 8-week experiential group yoga program, because you can’t just talk about yoga and mindfulness, you have to actually practice it. In order to heal your relationship with your body, you need to be in your body, to learn it, to feel it move, and to experience all that it can do. To manage the craziness of your mind, you need to challenge the mind, learn to watch your thoughts, and let them pass. You need to practice mindfulness to let it infuse your eating and your life. And chances are, you’ll discover so much more {maybe even how to love yourself} through a consistent yoga practice!

I teach yoga classes that are actionable and transformative, and I’m great at breaking down poses and concepts so that they are easy to understand and easy to practice. And you DO NOT have to have a certain body type, or certain level of experience to do yoga. If you can breath, you can do yoga.

I will guide you to explore the following themes, week by week, to help you get the most out of our work together.

Week 1: Presence

  • What does it mean to be present on your yoga mat, in your body, with your eating, and in life?
  • You will learn the foundational elements of yoga and explore the memories, experiences, and messages that have contributed to your current beliefs about your body and food.

Week 2: Pleasure

  • How do you embrace pleasure in a healthy way to bring more joy?
  • You will learn to observe – without judgement – how you react to emotions as you practice. You will ponder the emotional connections to food and your body and learn how your relationship with food parallels every other relationship in your life.

Week 3: Power

  • What does exercising personal power mean to you?
  • You will practice being with discomfort as you challenge your body and mind. Build confidence and self-esteem to take ownership of your current situation and act in accordance with your intentions, goals, and soul purpose.

Week 4: Forgiveness

  • Forgiving yourself and others is critical to moving forward on your wellness journey. You can choose, right now, to forgive yourself of past harms, but I get that can be hard.
  • I will support you in letting go of the stories that keep you in self-criticism and self-sabotage. Forgiveness it critical.

Week 5: Love

  • How do you practice self-love, self-compassion, and self-kindness as a foundation for nourishing yourself and loving others?
  • You will begin to open your heart through safe and effective backbends and other balancing postures. Learn techniques in self-compassion to love and accept yourself, exactly as you are, without losing sight of your transformative power.

Week 6: Truth

  • Explore truth, creativity and self-expression in your yoga practice. Commit to effectively communicating your truths and boundaries, including your wellness needs and desires.

Week 7: Wisdom

  • Do you trust yourself and your body’s inner wisdom, or does false logic regularly get in the way?
  • Strengthen intuition and learn the language of the body to build self-trust.

Week 8: Faith

  • Explore your unique spirituality and discover your Higher Self. Learn to let go of what you can’t control and allow yourself to be more receptive to what the Universe has in store.
  • Practice postures that help you let go, relax, and feel at peace with yourself and the world.

who is this for?

glitterbar

Yoga for Mindful Eating and Living is perfect for…

  • The woman who deeply wants to heal her relationship with her body and food through yoga, EVEN if she’s never practiced yoga before, and EVEN if she’s got a couple of physical limitations. FYI, I LOVE teaching yoga to “non-yogis.”
  • The positive and action-oriented person ready to build strength and power in body, mind, and spirit.
  • The chronic dieter who is sick of the food fight and the body bashing, and who’s ready to find another way.
  • The busy professional who can’t seem to slow the mental clutter and calm the stress, and knows that a little mindfulness would go a long way toward living a more energetic and focused life. {And please don’t tell me the stress has nothing to do with your food habits and relationship with your body.}
  • The yogi who wants to deepen her practice and develop herself through understanding how she relates to her body and food. {Your relationship with food parallels every other relationship in your life.}

 Yoga for Mindful Eating and Living is NOT for…

  • The closed minded person with no need to explore her relationship with food and her body. She is 100% happy with her body and how she eats right now.
  • The complacent or non-committal person stuck in self-pity and not ready to move forward.
  • The individual who is struggling to put food on the table. This is a an amazingly worthwhile investment in yourself, but the cost should not add significant stress.

How do I know this will work for me? What if I fail again?

“What if I fail? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?” – Unknown

If you do the practices and work through the program as it’s laid out, you WILL transform. Yoga for Mindful Eating and Living – The Course, isn’t about superficial quick fixes, it’s about going deeper and really learning to understand and respect yourself. I can guarantee it is different than anything you’ve ever tried.

Forgive yourself of your past. You’re not wrong and you haven’t actually failed. Life gives you lessons, insight, and wisdom that you carry forth. Let go of the story that you’re a failure, right now! Say to yourself: “I’m sorry, I forgive you, thank you, and I love you.” You can choose to move on in a positive light.

I’m pretty busy, will I have time?

Each module should take 1-3 hours to complete each week, depending on how many times in the week you want to do the yoga practice and meditation. At the end of the day, you make time for what matters to you. Is it that you don’t think you’ll have time, or is it that you’re not sure you feel worth spending time on? These things are different.

I can’t afford it! Help, what should I do?

If you are struggling to put food on the table, then perhaps its not the right time to invest. Most of the time, however, “I can’t afford it” means “I’m choosing to spend my money elsewhere” or “I don’t feel worth this investment right now” or something altogether different. Regardless of what choice you make, I challenge you to change your language around this statement so that you can feel more like the victor over the victim. And then think: “what is the cost of me staying the same?” Or “what value do I place on my personal self-care, professional development, and connection with other smart and soulful women?” And then remember, there are payment plans available and options to help you overcome this barrier.

I don’t have a “yoga body,” will I be able to do the physical movements?

If you have a body, you have a “yoga body.” This program will incorporate movement of various levels in accordance with the themes. I will offer modifications for yoga postures and suggest props to support your practice so you leave feeling fabulous. If you have concerns about your health or physical limitations, be sure to ask your doctor if yoga could be a good fit.

What if I need to miss a class?

The next round of the program is online and you can work through it at your own pace, even though I will guide you according to an 8-week schedule. But truly, you are never behind and do not need to worry about missing a class.

What if I have more questions?

Please feel welcome to email support@worthyandwell.com if you have further questions.
