Pilates and Perfect Health: The Path to Perfect Health begins April 2016!

Balance-perfecthealth post

As many of you know, last August I became a Chopra Center Instructor. I am very excited to announce that I’ll be teaching the Perfect Health Program at  Body Fundamentals on 5 consecutive Sundays beginning this April 3, 2016. Every Sunday covers a different lesson, each building upon the other.

The Perfect Health program was created by Drs. Deepak Chopra and David Simon.  It represents the integration between the principles of modern science and insights from the world’s timeless wisdom traditions. It’s received worldwide acceptance in both the medical and nonmedical communities and is a comprehensive  movement toward total health.

Spring 2016 Perfect Health program dates:

  • Sunday, April 3rd, 1-3:30pm Lesson I
  • Sunday, April 10th, 1-3:30pm Lesson II
  • Sunday, April 17th, 1-3:00pm Lesson III
  • Sunday, April 24th, 1-4:00pm Lesson IV
  • Sunday, May 1st, 1-3:00pm Lesson V

June and Sept. 2016

I’ll also be offering the Perfect Health program as a mini retreat in June (23rd-26th) and in September (22nd-25th). You can take the full program as often as you like (see 2016 dates here).

Pilates and Perfect Health- a powerful combination.

The Perfect Health program is a natural complement to the Pilates focus that continues to be the foundation of our work at Body Fundamentals. The program will assist you in creating healing and transformation in your life through using the best practices of mind/body medicine from around the world combined with the beautiful wisdom of Ayurveda.

You’ll learn: meditation techniques, how to develop a daily Ayurvedic routine, understanding Ayurvedic herbs and nutrition, cooking and eating for better health, conscious communication techniques to improve your personal and professional relationships and gentle yoga postures.

With gratitude and love,

On the path to Perfect Health: What is Ayurveda?

stones in water genevievenedder.comAyurveda: a 5,000 year-old healing system founded in ancient India. Derived from Sanskrit words “ayus” meaning “life,” and “veda” meaning “wisdom.”

The “wisdom of life” that is Ayurveda is the foundation of the Perfect Health program and a way of living about which I’m passionate. Viewing our health as a state of “vibrant balance” instead of separate, disparate pieces has always resonated with me.  Teaching movement (Pilates) as a mind/body/spirit experience is a big piece of my own healthy lifestyle.

The connection of breath, the practice of being present with our bodies— this kind of awareness can allow for a truly integrative movement experience.  The beautiful wisdom of Ayurveda speaks to me in that same way, an opportunity to live with more balance from all levels of our being.

One of the primary reasons I sought the Chopra Certified Instructor path was to expand my tool box and continue my own healing journey. Another is that I want to share the healing benefits of Ayurveda with you. The process of integrating techniques and tools (like meditation) nutrition and movement into your daily life is transformative, as I can personally attest. I practice much of the Perfect Health program each day, from meditation, which has brought and continues to bring pain relief, mental calm and clarity, to successfully choosing the foods that will nurture my body and decrease inflammation.

I invite you to join me in 2016 on the path to Perfect Health. I’ll be teaching the Perfect Health Program, created by Deepak Chopra, MD and David Simon, MD, at Body Fundamentals Studio (Tucson) on 5 consecutive Sundays beginning April 3, 2016  There will also be two multi-day versions of the  program in June and September that I’m designing as mini-retreats with morning movement (Pilates and Yoga), healthy snacks, lunches and more!

Ayurveda offers a proven guide for a life filled with vitality, love, happiness and purpose. Balance of mind and body makes it easier to choose the best for ourselves. I hope you’ll join me this year!

In “Perfect Health,”

Geneviève
