|What does meditation have to do with weight loss? |
After all, you just sit/recline there with your eyes closed, so how could that possibly help?"
This's a reasonable question - as most people don't think of meditation when they think about how to lose weight.
But, when you use the power of your mind and focus your meditation on weight loss, you can...
1) Relieve stress & reduce stress hormones which cause you to hold onto weight.
2) Lower your heart rate & breathing to ease the body & mind
3) Calm your central nervous system and communicate positive messages.
4) Create positive neural pathways for success for your weight loss goals.
5) Experience deep rejuvenating sleep.
6) Reduce inflammation in your gut and improve digestion.
7) Increase your body's sensitivity to the fat regulating hormones leptin & insulin.
8) Build positive feelings of self worth, love & acceptance, and life purpose.
With guided meditation, you are not faced with the challenge of keeping your focus on the present moment.
As your guide, you just keep your focus on Ty's voice.
Discover the tools to help you achieve the weight goal that you have always wanted and desired.
Reduce your appetite and look forward to exercising.
Practice gentle aerobic movements that you can do in the comfort of your own home.
What does "gentle aerobic movements" mean?
In these classes, it means a low impact, gentle, exercise routine, primarily using a chair.
Utilizing movement to burn calories, improve bone strength, and energize.
These are must do routines, if weight loss is your goal!
Some exercises will ask that you stand, but they can be done sitting as well.
As with any movement practice, it is expected that you have gotten your physicians approval before starting.
Honor your limits
Gentle movement does not mean that the exercises will never be challenging.
Each person has different limitations that must be honored.
You know your limits, your issues, your challenges, and you are expected to adjust each exercise as appropriate.
If you need suggestions or advice, just ask your Ty for ideas (in class or in email before/after class).
The basic rule is stop or slow down, if needed.
You can even leave the video off, if you prefer.
But, people having their videos on does help Ty lead the class, since he can see feedback on how you are doing.
This series is for individuals who would like to change their relationship to weight.
Change your mind, change your life.
Each class includes a 30 minute gentle but energizing movement session that prepares you for a deeper meditation
and a 30 minute guided meditation session that both deeply relaxes
and offers visualizations to support positive change
about weight, eating, body image, and pther related subjects.
Each series is comprised of 4 classes priced at $15 per class,
or you can purchase a class pass of four classes for $50.
Permanent weight loss does not come from fad diets.
Permanent change comes from positive change to how you think and act....
!!! Start your change !!!
