Journey to Optimal Weight, Health, Energy, and Vitality

40 More Days of Transformation through Yoga and Ayurveda . . .

The Next 40 Days book cover"What goes on inside of your body and mind is what will manifest in your outer life. The external always mirrors the internal. When we make changes at the very building block level, our DNA, which we can do with eating habits and food choices, the pieces begin to fall into place inside of us. When we intentionally create balance, health and harmony inside of our bodies, it shows up in all areas of our lives. We often get so ingrained in the habits and lifestyle choices that we have been making, that we forget that we ourselves are the keys to change.

Transformation is a way of life. Either we are constantly growing and evolving or we are stuck. Each of us has everything we need to heal and thrive within our reach and within ourselves. Transformation begins with new, enlightened choices. Across multiple wisdom traditions, 40 Days is considered the optimal time period to set permanent change into motion. These 40 days will take you even deeper into the body, mind and spirit. Inspired by the healing sciences of yoga and Ayurveda, you will explore higher ways of living and being. These 40 Days will be a catalyst for profound transformation and enlightened living. Why not begin now?"

Watch your metabolism ignite, your moods lift, your energy surge, and your spirits soar.

I have taken the 40 Days to Enlightened Eating journey more times that I can count, and I still learn something about eating and about my relationship to food every time I walk the path! I do the 40 Days to Enlightened Eating along with my 40 Days classes, and on my own in between the classes! I do it each year for lent as well. Over and over, I've witnessed for myself that changing your eating alone, changes EVERYTHING: mood, energy, strength, water-retention, sleep, weight, body tone, mental clarity, muscle and joint aches, and much more! I just restarted my own 40 Day journey this Tuesday, after a collection of holidays: Spring Break, Easter, my birthday, Mother's Day, and Memorial Day! In just 3 days I feel so much better! It is my greatest passion to make people aware of the profound effects food has on the body, mind and soul! The healthier your lifestyle, the more your highest self can be expressed, and the more you are able to live to your fullest soul potential!
This is Enlightened Eating!
