After a season of gifting and celebrating, we often find ourselves entering the New Year with our pockets a little lighter (an our pants a little tighter) - and though many use this as fuel to pursue the latest fad diet, we’re using it as an opportunity to fuel our bodies and souls with food that makes us FEEL good. With a month full of classes such as Superfoods & Adaptogens with the phenomenal Katrine Van Wyk and Meal Prep Basics, our goal is to help you kick off your year both happy AND healthy.
Far more importantly, though it’s early days in this brand new year, and withNancy back in the driver’s seat. we have high hopes for a season of more compassion, more change, and little more moral clarity.
The happiest of New Year’s to you all, and we cannot wait to see you in the studio soon for this brand new season!
