The Yoga of Eating: A Mindful Eating Workshop

by Stacy

Back in October I did my first mindful eating workshop at Halcyon Tea in the South Park neighborhood of San Diego.

From previous class attendees:

“The handouts were great. I liked the tea and the cookie exercise.
Most useful was the discussion time. I learned a lot!”

“I had a great time at your workshop and I learned a lot! I’ve been trying to incorporate being mindful into more of my life. I’m definitely going to go out and purchase the book you showed us and would love any recommendations you have for other books on Mindfulness. All of this is very new to me, but I’m very interested in all of it!”

I’m offering another class in this series in January. What better way to start a new year?

The Yoga of Eating

In this workshop, we will focus on the ideas of Charles Eisenstein’s book The Yoga of Eating: Transcending Diets and Dogma to Nourish the Natural Self. You don’t have to do yoga to appreciate the information, and while we won’t do any yoga in the class, we will have tea and treats!

Topics include:

  • The Fallacy of Willpower
  • Discovering the right diet
  • Distinguishing appetites from cravings
  • Loving the body, loving the self
  • The Yoga of Cooking

Learn how to eat until you’re satisfied, not until you’re full.
Start listening to your body to create your own dietary “dogma” that actually serves you.
Find questions to ask yourself to keep yourself honest when facing a craving.
Eliminate guilt and truly feel nourished.
Don’t reward yourself with food, be good to yourself with food.

Each attendee will receive notes and worksheets to take home, participate in a discussion about the concepts, and take part in a mindfulness exercise using both tea from Halcyon and a snack.
