Dog and Human HeartDog Nutrition Coaching will help your dog be healthy and feel great. They are part of the family too. Your dog will love you longer because they will live longer. Since dogs aren’t able to go to the store to buy their food, their health depends on you.

Like people, we all have different health needs and it is important to find what works best for your dog. There are so many foods and supplements on the market and it can get confusing. If you need help finding what works best for your dog we are happy to help you.

It is your responsibility as a dog owner to provide your dog with proper nutrition. Allow them the chance to live most optimally. Feed them nutritious ingredients not artificial ingredients, animal by-products, or indigestible fillers. Look at the ingredients of your dog’s food. Choose by ingredients not by what the bag claims or if it looks “yummy” from the picture on the bag! The point of food is to provide your dog with the healthy nutrients they need to live, not just to fill their stomachs. You are what you eat, same goes for your dog.

The common concern is…its more expensive. Is it really? Generally, you don’t have to feed your dog as much with a higher quality food. This is because your dog is actually absorbing and using what you are putting into their body. When they absorb more then less comes out of them, which means less poop for you to deal with. Also, a more healthy food means less visits to your veterinarian. Simple health issues can be eliminated when feeding a higher quality food. Ear infections, skin problems, hyper behavior, allergies, basic immune system and even diseases like cancer can all be prevented.

Exercise, weight loss and training programs are also available for your dog. This helps keeps your dog physically healthy and mentally healthy too. Contact Aimee, a Certified Canine Nutritional Advocate and Certified Kennel Operator.
Each session is $59

Private Yoga

Private Yoga Sessions

Private yoga sessions are ideal for those who want personalized instruction to begin brand new or to grow their yoga practice. It is a way to learn and improve based on the specific needs and desires of the client. Private sessions can be a way to eliminate distractions of other people and to experience yoga completely based on the individuality of the client. Beginners can find that private sessions can be especially beneficial, providing them an environment that they can try new poses at entirely their pace with specific feedback and support from the instructor. Each session is prepared with care and encourages individual exploration. Sessions are by appointment Monday through Saturday.

50 minute session = $60

Small Group Yoga Class
We also offer small group yoga classes by appointment Monday through Saturday. A small group is 2-12 people. This is a great way to spend time with others while getting exercise and improving yourself. Get a group together and contact us to schedule your class.

50 minute class = $75

Yoga means union – the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul. Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day to day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions. ~B.K.S. Iyengar

That’s exactly how it is in yoga. The places where you have the most resistance are actually the places that are going to be the areas of the greatest liberation. ~Rodney Yee

“The autonomic nervous system is divided into the sympathetic system, which is often identified with the fight-or-flight response, and the parasympathetic, which is identified with what’s been called the relaxation response. When you do yoga — the deep breathing, the stretching, the movements that release muscle tension, the relaxed focus on being present in your body — you initiate a process that turns the fight-or-flight system off and the relaxation response on. That has a dramatic effect on the body. The heartbeat slows, respiration decreases, blood pressure decreases. The body seizes this chance to turn on the healing mechanisms. ~Richard Faulds

What we’re trying to do in yoga is to create a union, and so to deepen a yoga pose is to actually increase the union of the pose, not necessarily put your leg around your head. ~Rodney Yee

We are aware of yoga only as a technique to gain physical strength, flexibility, or increased health. And indeed these are potent side effects of the practice. But that is what they are: side effects. To focus on these largely insignificant manifestations is to miss the point entirely. ~John McAfee

I would like for people to realize that yoga is not about touching your toes. ~Gary Kraftsow

Basic Concepts

henryjo No Comments

I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.

My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.

Together we’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.

Here are some concepts that we will explore during our work together:

Bio-individuality™: The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background. I use a personalized, holistic approach to ensure that you will have great success!

Primary Food™: It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

Integrative Nutrition™ Plate: The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality. I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body!
