Upcoming programs in June

  • Series dates: Tuesdays, June 9-July 7 • 2-3:30 p.m.

    Instructor: Karen Ialapi, RD, LD, CDE, Certified Diabetes Educator, Wellness Coach

    Description: The paradox of our current relationship with food is that we obsess about nutrition and weight but are less present for the mealtime experience itself. Our routine mindset has us rushing through meals and eating on autopilot. Slowing down and bringing more attention and intention (mindfulness) to our food world can help us shift gears, embrace food as a gift, aid digestion, manage weight and feel more nourished on multiple levels.

  • Series dates: Wednesdays, June 10 and 24 • 2-4 p.m.

    Instructor: Karen Ialapi, RD, LD, CDE, Certified Diabetes Educator, Wellness Coach

    Description: This interactive class provides a safe place for people who struggle with food to connect with others and gently unpack what is happening with food from a place of curiosity vs. judgment. We’ll explore the multiple issues that coincide with our relationship with food, including emotional eating, deprivation-binge cycles, food boundaries and dieting. You will learn to practice mindfulness, identify unmet needs, build self-care skills and heal your relationship with food. This is not a diet class.

  • Dates:

    • Monday, June 15 • 3-4 p.m.
    • Saturday, June 27 • 10-11 a.m.

    Instructor: Peggy Welkner, Registered Yoga Teacher

    Instructor: Linda Kramer, MA, ATR, Art Therapist

    Description: This program is a quiet, safe place to create art to investigate, process and reflect. The intent will be to express emotions and thoughts that are hard to put into words.
