New Year, New You

What’s Happening at Blum Center

Happy, healthy 2015! With January comes the start of a new year and the opportunity to set resolutions as well as goals for the year ahead. A common thread of New Year’s resolutions often includes losing weight and becoming healthier in our mind body connection. This year we’re focusing on giving you tools that will set you up for an overall attainable healthy lifestyle plan versus a fleeting quick fix. Through group weight loss programs, mindfulness classes and healthy cooking demos, we’re confident that the knowledge and support you’ll receive will bring out your healthiest, happiest self in 2015. Here’s a look at ways you can get involved this month at Blum Center for Health!

You will also have the opportunity to purchase all of the ingredients to make the Kitchari, along with recipes, ghee, supplements, and a comprehensive Instruction Guide! Fresh home-made Kitchari will also be available for sale at Organic Pharmer.

Winter Weight Loss Group: Beginning January 26th, our 2 month Winter Weight Loss Group provides a supportive group setting for long lasting weight loss results. The group meets 4 Monday evenings from 6:00 – 7:30pm, and focuses on warming foods that help restore and boost your mitochondria, the energy producing cells that play an important role in your metabolism. Come discover which foods can improve your health and promote weight loss!

Mind-Body Skills Groups: Eating healthy and staying active are only part of the equation. Beginning January 21st, our Mind Body Skills Group provides a supportive small group environment to gently begin the journey towards self-discovery, reducing and relieving stress and creating optimal health. You’ll learn a series of powerful and effective, research-based healing tools such as meditation and breathing to help you explore life changes, stress and well being. Anyone can benefit from the deepening self-awareness that comes from these explorations, as well as people who have a particular health or life challenge and want to understand more about the connection between what is happening on the outside (life!) and what is happening on the inside (your body, mind and spirit). Groups meet weekly from 9:00am – 10:30am over the course of 6 weeks.
