Every day we are bombarded with social pressures of physical image, behaviour and even professional choices! 

 

Athletes have the added pressures of performance, competition and body image expectations.

Perfectionism is sometimes masked as personal excellence, and strict rules start to dictate our lives:

chronic dieting, food group eliminations, calorie counting, carbohydrate counting, eating “clean” and many other strategies.

 

 More often than not, such impositions are only limiting progress

and seriously impacting both physical and mental health, taking us further from our sporting goals. 

When we are in tune with our body needs, when we honour our internal cues of hunger and satiety, when we get satisfaction out of the food we eat and when we treat our body with respect, then we are able to make choices that work in our favour. We eat what we need to keep our bodies strong, support the training load, and take us to new heights.

 

There is no guilt. No shame. No feeling out of control.


 

 

ARE YOU READY FOR A NEW PERSPECTIVE?

MINDFULLY ACTIVE

is a series of workshops and educational sessions that provides the support and guidance to teach you the

empowering skills of intuitive eating 

with a focus on athletes and active people's perspectives.

The aim of this workshop series is to help active people who have struggled with eating rules and restrictions in the past foster a better relationship with food. This is specially for you if: 

- Food is a way of dealing with emotions or stress

- Eating is associated with guilt and anxiety

- You alternate between bingeing and restricting

- Exercise is used to counterbalance foods eaten

- Food is seen as "good" or "bad"

 

Together we will explore an alternative to diets and restrictive eating patterns, and develop valuable intuitive eating skills. As a result, this program will help you create more trust in your internal signals and make decisions about  eating choices that will honour your hunger, health and training requirements.
