What a glorious Sunday this is panning out to be. Chilly, autumn-like weather aside, I’m feeling pretty darn good right now!
Reason being, I just got home from attending the Eat Well, Feel Well program run by Registered Nutritionist, Joy McCarthy of Joyous Health and Certified Yoga Instructor, Michelle Uy of LoveActionYoga. And let me tell you, these two lovely ladies know where it’s at when it comes to Eating Well and Feeling Well!
The class started off with a nutrition session led by Joy. Today the focus was on foods for heart, brain and skin health. As we know, true beauty comes from the inside out. It’s not what we slather on our bodies but what we put in our bodies (or rather don’t put in them!) that is key to anti-aging. Joy has a truly joyous nature about her and will inspire you to want to eat well!
Next we moved on to the yoga session led by Michelle. Today was all about heart openers and back bends. Did you know you could open your upper back? We practiced this today, and let me tell you it feels amazing. If you are one of those people who holds tension in your upper back (think sitting in front of a computer for long hours) then you will truly benefit from this. This class is intended for all levels, so if you are a beginner don’t be intimidated. Michelle provides gentle guidance throughout the whole class to ensure you are getting the most out of each exercise.
The program runs the course of 6 weeks and every class is different in terms of nutrition topics and yoga exercises. Check out full class details here on Joy’s site. Next class starts in July and space is limited, so make sure you sign-up soon if you’re interested.
I must say this was the perfect way to start off my Sunday, and a great way to wind down after a busy weekend.
It also gave me that added push to get out of bed a little earlier than I probably would have on a Sunday morning to ensure I made it down to the class on time.
Now that I’ve got it under my belt, I can continue on enjoying the rest of my day basking in my rejuvenated body!
And on a final note…
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mama’s out there:)
