Spring 2019 Special Events: Breath Awareness and Mindful Eating Workshops

Breath Awareness for Stress Reduction


Take a break from stress and allow your mind, body, and spirit to find a place of rest and relaxation. Breath awareness techniques have the ability to stimulate the physiological relaxation response and turn down the "fight or flight" stress response. This 1 1/2 hour workshop will introduce two breath awareness techniques that have been shown to:
• reduce stress, anxiety, and some chronic illness risk factors
• increase focus and experiences of calm relaxation
These techniques will be taught during the workshop and resources will be provided so that you can practice these skills at home. In addition to breath awareness practice, you will have an opportunity for reflection and journaling to assist you to identify and envision a place of calm relaxation in your own life. Facilitated by Katie Winnell, Nurse Coach and Health Educator.

When: Tuesday evening, March 19th, 2019 at 6:30 pm

Where: 413 Waukazoo Ave. in Petoskey, the Integrative Medicine Office of Dr. Carin Nielsen

Cost: $40

Pre-registration is required and space is limited. Please call 231.638.5585 to register

For the Love of Food! Creating Integrated Health through Mindful Eating


No More Guilt

No More Dieting

No More Obsessing

You truly can "Eat What You Love, and Love What You Eat" while working toward integrative health goals.

This 8 week interactive workshop with Katie Winnell, RN, NC-BC, will utilize the Am I Hungry® Mindful Eating Program to help you recognize and manage your eating patterns and work toward a state of nutritional wellness. Far from “just another diet,” Mindful Eating helps you to:

  • break your “eat-repent-repeat” cycle - first depriving, then craving, then overeating, then feeling guilty, and returning to prior habits

  •  return to instinctive eating by developing healthful habits using our internal cues of hunger and fullness

  • learn to view food as a joyful opportunity for self-care

  • manage your eating patterns to assist in reaching integrated health goals

  • use the energy from your food to live a joyful, vibrant life

Workshop materials  always include the book Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat by Dr. Michelle May, a companion workbook and awareness journal, and access to the Am I Hungry® online participant portal, full of support and educational resources.

Katie Winnell is a Licensed Facilitator of the Am I Hungry® Mindful Eating Program.
