Classes delve into a variety of topics surrounding natural eating and health. Check the class calendar for upcoming classes! Here is more information about what to expect for my classes:
Venue: My goal in choosing a venue is that it be as inspiring as the contents of the class and facilitate students’ blooming into the ideas communicated and discovered during the session. I currently teach at The Florida School of Holistic Living and I am looking for a venue in Sarasota.
The Florida School of Holistic Living is in downtown Orlando. A hub for herbal medicine, natural health, and sustainable living in Central Florida, I am honored to be hosting classes at the School! The classroom is a cozy, bright room with comfortable seating. Check out all of the wonderful classes offered at the School here!
Content: The aim for the content of my classes is to be a springboard for further learning. Content includes discussions on nutrition, history, new and interesting ideas, and at least as many questions as answers. I will bring to the table what I have learned through my training as a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) and what I have discovered through personal research and experience.
Interaction: Classes tend to be highly interactive, each person bringing to the class their expertise and experience with the relevant topics. In a very casual manner, discussion is encouraged and new discoveries are made by students and teacher through the sharing of anecdotes, experiences, research and stories. I attempt to connect with all types of learners during the class: auditory, visual and, always, experiential.
Class usually begins with introductions. At the beginning of class, I will ask everyone to introduce themselves and say a little about what they do or are passionate about in life and what part of town they reside in. This helps me to get a sense of my audience and also for members of the class to connect with each other. Many fun and important connections are made through these classes! I will have a handout with relevant notes and recipes for those visual learners, and we will begin going over the topic at hand verbally. If you attend a food-related class, we’ll likely be creating at least one recipe during the class. (Hands-on learners rejoice!) Group discussion helps to further our learning, so please feel free to ask a question or share a relevant story at any time!
Results: My hope is that after the class, you will feel inspired and equipped to try it on your own. Whether you learn to make sauerkraut or keep a food diary, I hope by the conclusion of the class, you will feel ready to take action and make positive developments in your life by starting a new practice, recipe or thought pattern. I also hope that taking my class is just the first step in a series of new and interesting discoveries in your life of learning.
