May the nourishment of the earth be yours- John O’donohue
Sometimes it is more easy to make changes in your life style and food habits with some extra help. I work with people individually to support them towards a new balance and more energy.
With a personal intake, tests, cleansing and detox protocols, recipes, cooking instructions/ private classes, prepared food and products and a (yoga) exercise program. Designed on what you need at the moment.
Digestion & Energy
A healthy digestive system is key in maintaining good energy levels. Do you experience low energy? Do you have digestive discomfort, especially in periods of stress? Feeling tired, bloated after eating, constipated, having cramps? So many people are struggling with digestive issues. Often it is not serious enough to really be bothered but still it can take a lot of your energy.
Or maybe you don’t experience anything specific but you do have a general feeling of exhaustion without really knowing what is the cause, or being aware of what food could help to regain energy.
In the last 20 years years I have gained a lot of experience and understanding in the relationship between what we eat and how we feel. I have studied Ayurvedic food & nutrition, plant based food techniques & cleansing protocols, Macrobiotic cooking and Tradional Chinese Medicine. It is the combination of these different insights that can be so supportive in finding your unique balance.
Further, as a Kundalini & Vinyasa yoga teacher, I can support you in bringing together awareness of body, digestion and daily food choices that are suitable for your specific situation. It is here where yoga and food come together.
From the Ayurvedic perspective, you will be in good health when there is a balance between the life energies, called dosha’s. A dosha is a combination of the five elements (water, earth, fire, ether and air). The three type of dosha’s are Vata (elements ether and air), Pitta (elements fire), Kapha (elements earth and water)
For example, you can imagine that when you are a person that feels cold quickly, you may benefit from different food than a very warm blooded and fiery person.
You can do a test to get a general idea of your body type. This is just a starting point from where you can discover what works for you.
