Deepen your experience of nutritional healing in a training that includes

  • The psycho-physiological mechanisms through which yoga and other mind-body practices support lifestyle change
  • Kripalu’s approach to mindful eating

  • The dynamic relationship between digestion and health, and the critical role nutrition plays for the brain and heart
  • Integrative approaches to nutrition assessment
  • How to use whole foods, dietary supplements, and mind-body nutrition therapeutically

This immersion focuses on the science, art, and practice of nutritional health and is ideal for physicians, nurses, nutritionists, registered dietitians, and other health-care professionals looking to find inspiration for both personal and professional development.
