What is Beast Mode Nutrition?
An opportunity to learn and apply mindfulness-based practices for achieving mindful eating offered in partnership with CKO Kickboxing Grand Rapids.
Each 90-minute interactive class includes instruction, discussion and activities. Practicing mindfulness directly influences grocery shopping and dining-out, as well as your social, work, and personal food struggles. Anita will teach you tools learned through her study of mindfulness, including her certificate course in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy.
How often do we meet?
First class is May 7 then each consecutive Tuesday from 6:00 to 7:30pm through May 28. The first and final day of class includes a 15-minute appointment for measuring and tracking goals.

What exactly is the nutrition side of Beast Mode Nutrition?
