Life Balance

This lecture is an experiential activity in which guests engage in a process of examining their current life roles, activities, and boundaries; through this exploration, guests are encouraged to re-examine how they can structure their lives from an internal place leading to greater personal satisfaction and alignment with life in general.

Nutrient Density vs Calorie Density

In this lecture we go deeper with nutrition, discussing how to rebalance our bodies and truly feed our metabolism. We dispel the myth of needing to starve ourselves to achieve sustained and healthy weight loss. Learning that when our body has the nutrition (information) it needs, we not only regain health and vitality, but we also naturally return to our optimal weight.

Macros and Labels

As we learn how different foods effect our bodies and give it different information, in this class we discover how to create our individual balance and create a template to meet our goals of health and weight loss. We discuss further what Macro Nutrients are and how they affect our weight loss goals. In addition how we learn how to look at nutrition labels to ensure our food choices match our goals.

The Plate Method

In this class we learn how we are able to create meals at Movara that make us feel so full and satisfied. We discuss how we can active certain receptors to achieve this same result at home! The plate method pulls all of this knowledge together in an easy to understand process that guests can take home and incorporate into every day life.

Nutritional Imbalances

What is my body telling me? In this discussion we learn to pay attention to what is out of balance in our body and how we can support it and re-establish homeostasis with nutrition. This allows us to achieve faster better results with health and weight loss. By learning to pay attention to our body and the symptoms we experience day-to-day, we become our own “expert” on know how to support our heath and vitality and overall function of our body.

Mini Habits: A Small Tool for Big Success

Habits happen - whether by default or by design -- and learning how to form positive habits is a learnable skill. In this talk, you'll learn everything you need to start making measurable change in your eating, exercise, and wellness habits. You'll learn how to use proven methods like "habit stacking," how to break bad habits using "friction," how motivation often follows action (rather than preceding it), how to create tracking systems to keep you accountable, and how shrinking your habits may just be the solution you've been looking for to help you lock in your exercise and eating routines. Habits are the key to your success and this presentation will show you how

The Brain Wellness Connection

Self care is one of the most important things you can do to perform at your best, become physically fit, and kickstart the healing systems of the body. Your brain needs breaks throughout the day just like your body. With our work demands getting faster and faster, brain science has now shown that the key to our most healthy, productive, and happiest selves isn't working harder, it's working smarter. In this presentation, you'll learn why scientists are advising you to take a nap in the afternoon, why you should schedule breaks throughout your day to "recharge" your focus, and how exercise and time in nature can have deep restorative effects on the body and brain. The science of micro-breaks has shown that getting more done isn't about managing time better, but about managing energy better.

The Power of Positive Emotions

Negativity comes naturally but positivity takes work. The brain, for all of its strengths, is often pulled toward the negative. Our brains tend to pay more attention to, believe, and filter in more negative information than positive information -- something scientists call the “negativity bias.” In this talk, you'll learn how to cultivate positivity and learn how positive emotions have a number of physical and mental benefits, including reducing inflammation, lowering stress, and increasing creativity. This talk will help you learn the tools and skills to get in the habit of focusing on the things that went well in your day instead of focusing on the things that didn't.

Building Stress Resilience

This talk will unpack the brain science of stress and give you the tools you need to reduce worry, conquer anxiety, and take actions that will help you manage uncertainty. Chronic stress is directly related to weight gain and puts us at increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, faster aging, and even cancer. Whether you need help to stop your mind racing at night or want to get better at not letting little things upset you, this talk will teach you how to work with your brain rather than against it to unlock a calm, centered, connected new you. Calm can become your new normal, but it takes brain training to get there.
