FLOW AND FOOD: THE CONNECTION BETWEEN YOGA AND INTUITIVE EATING JULY 11 530-730 PM
We are designed to eat intuitively. Imagine a bountiful potluck. Instead of analyzing choices for your future body, or being plagued with past addictions, you drop into connection with your whole being in present time. You scan the forest of potluck options and certain foods pop up with vibrant life. You touch, smell, and taste to let in what resonates and let go of all else without a second thought. In this state you are attuned to the choices and amounts you need without checking your diet app. You let go when you’re full. It’s native.
Aparigraha, our fifth Yama, means non-grasping. It is the doorway to learning intuitive eating.
Flow can also be defined as being embodied, responsive and available.. This takes practice, and the more you find it anywhere, the more you have it everywhere. In anything—from writing, yoga, or sex, to surfing, skiing, or food—we are in flow (embodied/responsive/available) when these three qualities exist. Being embodied, we choose with our present power. Being responsive, we let go of reacting out of habit. Being available, we let go and let in what we need in the now. We can’t feel flow if we are not in our bodies, are reactive, or are inflexible. In a word, we lose it when we grasp and try to achieve or “control”.
We also attach ourselves to a future body that we hope to gain by analyzing our food. Even the healthiest eaters are often missing the intuitive connection to food that creates real bliss through nourishment. You can choose foods based on abstract nutrition knowledge without ever listening to your own body. Grasping at your future self, you miss the present wisdom and flavor of the now. The potluck becomes a test for your nutrition knowledge instead of a flowing experience of trust and pleasure with your body. With Aparigraha, we let go of our need to know and need for control.
Aparigraha presents a radical notion; we can trust our bodies to tell us what, when, and how much to eat.
Join Susan Hoverson of In Sync Fitness and Adina Pearson RD of Adina Pearson Nutrition for an evening of yoga practice, mindfulness and intuitive eating.

PELVIC FLOOR AND CORE WORKSHOP FOR WOMEN: NEXT SESSION TO BE ANNOUNCED
Leaking is not normal and it can be fixed. Pelvic floor weakness is more than peeing when you sneeze or the occasional leak, it also causes, SI joint, hip and back pain. Studies show that leaking when you jump is not always related to pelvic floor strength but to correct firing of the pelvic floor/core musculature. In some cases the muscles are actually too tight. Join Susan Hoverson of In Sync Fitness and Sarah Scarborough RNP for a workshop on proper use of the pelvic floor and core exercises to retrain the musculature's neuro-pathway and normal function again.
