Wellness and Weight Loss --

A Deeper Dive

New 8 session program starts

Wednesday, May 24, 2023

The overall themes continue in the WWL - A Deeper Dive:

  • Wellness strategies personally or professionally
  • Weight loss or maintaining a healthy weight
  • Learning simple lifestyle modifications to feel better
  • Building immune system resilience
  • Brain health related to memory, anxiety, and brain fog

Plus new health and healing topics and more conversation

to support and sustain improvements and positive changes.

Expand your knowledge and apply more strategies for optimal health and weight loss including diet/nutrition and lifestyle with a minimum commitment of only 3 hours per month, each session is 90 minutes, to maximize your wellness IQ to feel better, move better, think better, and sleep better.

By applying the model of our successful CDC-approved Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) plus our most popular continuing education courses for rehab professionals, these new Wellness and Weight Loss classes include the most effective strategies and helpful information based on participant reviews. Our 2019-2020 DPP group of 10 participants lost a grand total of 207# including losses over holidays! New update! 100% of our 2021 and 2022 WWL groups lost weight every class session, even with challenging events and holidays! Perhaps more importantly they reported making better food choices, feeling good, having more energy, and improvements in lab tests including cholesterol.

Popular highlights will continue to include sharing wins and successes, and actionable steps and information. Plus sessions will continue to include pearls for optimal weight control, optimal immune system response, and optimal brain health. Plus basic education and support for issues related to digestion, elimination, eating habits, and (of course!) exercise/activity/movement are woven throughout the program. Support is provided between sessions too!

Special addition to this 8 week program - Mindful Morning Movement! Learn and perform a series of 8 simple movement routines of 3-5 minutes each in sitting. By the end of WWL - A Deeper Dive, you will have a 30 minute personalized routine incorporating breathing, mobility, gentle strengthening, principles of Pilates and yoga, and brain training for neuroplasticity. (Very relevant for participating clinicians to share with patients!)

Less than $25 per session!
