Lets Talk Cleanse

Lets Talk Cleanse
By Antanas Vainus, BodyMind Nourishment Coach


This time of year we often want to hold on to the memories of the holidays, but we want to let go of the 'holiday eating' ...With the new year upon us, it's a good time to 'talk cleanse'!

Let me briefly introduce myself… I'm Antanas, a BodyMind Nourishment Coach and a food magician.  A food magician is someone who has a deep understanding of nutrition and the body-mind relationship as well as exquisite culinary skill to create food that is delicious and deeply nourishing.

I want to invite you into an exciting conversation  about deep self-care. we'll start with exploring what and how to cleanse.  we may cover  juicing, blending, nourishing broths, green smoothies - sweet and savory, may even get into colon health, trampolines and dancing. the cleansing conversation is a fine line.  How do we cleanse in a healthy way that does not slow us down?  It's easy to get excited about detoxing -- getting unsupportive things out of the body. However in my experience, cleansing and detoxing are usually pretty unsustainable. the merry-go-round ride can become exhausting -- round and round we go. eat 'good' stuff, eat 'bad' stuff, get rid of 'bad' stuff, eat more 'good' stuff, etc, etc, etc.

If this is a familiar pattern and you're tired of the up and down, on-off, good-bad thinking, I invite you to come join me on saturday jan 25 at 2pm for a conversation to help you get off that ride and find a way back to nourishment - which cleanses and builds at the same time!

bring your friends and curiosity -- because there IS a way to have a deeply nourishing and loving relationship with our food... and ourselves!

-Lecture/discussion on the causes of insomnia as well as the preventative and curative measures we can take to keep ourselves sleeping soundly

Let's Talk Cleanse: A Facilitated Conversation 
with Antanas Vainius, BodyMind Nourishment Coach

Antanas Vainius, our BodyMind Nourishment Coach and resident food magician, will lead two conversations about cleansing and detoxification - on Thursday, January 9th from 6:30-8:00 pm and Saturday, January 25th from 2-4 pm.  

This is brainstorming session to support your new years' resolutions and inspire a healthier and more sustainable way of eating and doing self-care. The goal is to help you understand how to create and succeed at YOUR perfect cleanse; and after your cleanse, discover how to nourish yourself in a delicious and sustainable way.  As a food magician, Antanas will help you discover how to reconnect pleasure with nutrition. In fact, food that is not both enjoyable and nutritious is a dead end - just like ALL diets.  Only by bringing nutrition and pleasure back together do we have a chance to take back our sanity and power and find our way back to our Center. 


You will learn about all the necessary tools to cleanse successfully and shortcuts that make it easy.  Also we will explore the possibility of doing a cleanse together as a community - incorporating the many resources of WFW to support us to go deeper and have longer lasting benefits.   

INVITE YOUR FRIENDS and let's get healthy and happy together in 2014!

Cost: Sliding Scale $25-45

Self Care for the Holidays


Self Care for the Holidays
By Jenni-Kay Long, 
Holistic Psychotherapist
Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed by all of the holiday hoopla?  
While some of us are preparing for days filled with extended family and busyness… others of us are wondering how we will fill our time with a lack of family and friends to share the holidays with.  Either way, emotions are abundant this time of year and it can be difficult to take good care of ourselves in the midst of all the fanfare. 
Here are a few self-care tips for the holidays:  
1. Make a plan 
When our stress and anxiety levels are soaring, it is difficult to remember how to soothe ourselves, get grounded, and re-group.  And it is especially challenging at holiday time when our senses are over stimulated with noise, lights, and people.  
So, before the company arrives and you are in the throws of activity (or in a slump of lonely melancholy), take a few minutes and make a plan.  Write down on a note card or small slip of paper five things that you can do to take good care of yourself when you are feeling stressed/anxious/overwhelmed.  
Need some ideas?  You might: take a walk; make a cup of tea; enjoy ten deep breaths.  Be sure and write down one thing that involves another person, i.e.: Call a friend.   
When things get difficult, pull out your plan and offer yourself a few moments of self-love.  
2. Take breaks
Constant hustle and bustle will tax the strongest of nerves so be sure and take breaks when you need them.  A five-minute mini-retreat to your bedroom/the bathroom/ the backyard, ect. isn’t too noticeable to everyone else and will give you the time and space you need to breathe and re-group.   Don’t worry, the holiday will still be there when you get back.  (If that sounds terrible, gently reminder yourself that the holiday hoopla will be over for good in a just a couple of short weeks.  This doesn’t last forever and your life will soon get back to normal.) 
3. Nourish yourself
Holidays tend to drastically change our routine (and put pressure on us to be jolly about it) so it is important to nourish your body throughout the winter festivities.  While you may be surrounded by delectable pies and pastries, remember to supplement the sweets with good food that is grounding and that will balance out the sugar high.  Let your body be your ally – take care of it so that it will help take care of the rest of you, particularly your mind and emotions.   
4. Reach out for support
It doesn’t always work to vent about our family/friends to our family/friends.  You might consider reaching out to a therapist for support.  Gift yourself the time and space to connect with a professional who will listen non-judgmentally, confidentially, and walk with you through the holiday season and into the New Year.  
Or, consider scheduling a massage, acupuncture session, or taking a yoga class.  You might set up a time to have tea with a friend.  You know yourself best… take a moment and consider who you might reach out to for support and then make it happen.

Do you feel grateful? Chances are you suffer less too...

gratitude philadelphia


What are the benefits of a grateful outlook? A study (PDF), by the Universities of California and Miami set out to examine just that. Here is what they found.

1. Weekly Graditute. One study focused on people who were to write down, on a weekly basis, 5 things they were grateful for from the previous week. They found that "weekly benefit listing was associated with more positive and optimistic appraisals of one’s life, more time spent exercising, and fewer reported physical symptoms."

2. Daily Graditude.  In Study 2, people were asked to complete a survey every evening regarding what they were grateful for.  This group had even more positive affects including more interpersonal benefits. "People led to focus on their blessings were also more likely to report having helped someone with a personal problem or offered emotional support to another, suggesting prosocial motivation as a consequence of the gratitude induction."

3. NMD and Gratidude. The third study focused on people with Neuromuscular Disease. They were also asked to report their gratidutes daily. The results were "in greater levels of positive affect, more sleep, better sleep quality, and greater optimism and a sense of connectedness to others. In Study 3, we even found that the gratitude intervention led to reductions in negative affect."

Community Yoga and Meditation


Community Yoga: A yoga class where people talk to each other

We all need our solitude, and yoga and meditation are both great portals into conscious, healing “alone time”.  Group yoga classes offer the added benefit of communal sacred solitude in which students energetically connect through shared movement and relaxation.
Often though, we need more than shared quietness – we need to talk and be heard.  We need to vocalize our intentions and discuss the challenges of mindful living with others who are on similar journeys.  It is helpful to have someone hold us accountable for our personal / spiritual goals and ask us how we are doing along the way. 
Our Thursday evening community yoga and meditation class at Wayne Family Wellness, offers time and space for both quite contemplation and facilitated group discussion.  Each class begins with a teaching and time for sharing, followed by movement, relaxation, and meditation.  The evening concludes with a group check-in and individual intention setting. 
The class is great for students with all levels of experience.  Depending on the needs of the class, the yoga postures range from gentle stretching to semi-vigorous sequences to longer held yin poses.

30% off Reiki through the rest of the year!

In a surprise Tuesday twist, Joana our awesome Reiki practitioner, is offering her services at a discount of 30% today, tomorrow, the next day and so on, until the end of the year! Joana says we all need some real stress relief around holiday time and this is how she can help!

Never tried Reiki? This is what will happen....

You will arrive at Wayne Family Wellness,  you will think to yourself "Self, I'm so glad to be here", then Joana will greet you and say "Welcome". Then she will chat with you for a few minutes about your health concerns, then you will lay (fully clothed) upon the  cozy reiki table. And Joana will place her magical healing hands upon or above you. And you will feel AMAZING! And afterwards, your family and friends will say "wow , you seem so relaxed and at ease!" At which point they will also relax and you will start a ripple chain effect of relaxation and ease in your community! Not bad for $59.50**!

**Math Support
For those who need math support here is the breakdown
$85/hour-30%=$59.50 

What to do next?
Here is a link to Joana's Online Reiki Schedule. Go there and pick a time that works for you (evening and weekend hours available!). P.S. It may be wise to book a few weekly sessions to experience the cumulative effects!

Have an amazing session!!!

Love 
The gang at WFW

P.S. We are being really grateful on our Facebook Page...Will you come share your gratitudes with us?
