I am so excited, because an idea I have had rolling around in my brain for months has finally come to fruition!
Yesterday, January 8th, I opened for enrollment my course for performers,
"Whole Health for Performers!" This course is "A scientifically-based mind-body approach to get the most out of yourself, so you can focus on creating the performance of a lifetime."
This class is aimed at non-pro level actors, dancers, singers, musicians, directors, drama teachers, and techies who get their heart rate up on (or back) stage.
We cover: Physical fitness, Eating healthy, even when you are busy, Avoiding digestive issues on stage, Hydration, Vocal health, Mental health in the theatre, Better coping skills, and more, with step-by-step "homework" with each module so you actually TAKE ACTION on your goals!
It is being offered at a low cost of $97 for beta testing. This means you get to be a voice in the creation of this course! I will be tweaking the course based on your suggestions, and will be offering free live Q & A sessions to overcome personal barriers in a private facebook group for those who sign up. I normally charge $125/hour for individual counseling, so this is a steal!
Keep your eyes peeled for more educational courses coming later this year! I have some free education available on the online education page under "services" - check them out too
(I admit they are my first online creation, and not the prettiest!).
If you are in the performing arts, and want to take better care of your body on and off stage, what are you waiting for? Go to the course now!
Don't just take my word for it, a wonderful article about this course was written by the creator of OnStage Blog. Here it is for more info:

A common myth I hear from people is that we need to "cut out carbs."
No, we need the majority of our daily calories from carbohydrates.
Yes, different conditions require different amounts, but we still need quite a bit.
If we are eating the correct amount of calories for our needs our composition should be broken-down roughly into the percentages shown below.
I created a quick cheat-sheet for you about how much Carbohydrate/Fat/Protein we need.

A gift to my lovely readers, a printable format for a food and feelings journal. I use this format with all my clients so we can search for connections between triggers and eating behaviors.
Simply add your e-mail below to get a PDF to print off your own copies.
One page does not mean that is all the space you get for a day, use more paper if necessary. If you are working with a dietitian or therapist, this format can be helpful to show them several days of logging what you eat.
Let me know what you think.
