This is something I've wanted for so long. Since I was in the midst of Yoga Teacher Training, I knew this would be the logical next step for me. The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and the Kushi Institute have both been in my sights for years now. I will get to the Kushi Institute someday, but in the meantime, I am thrilled to be enrolled in the distance learning program at Integrative Nutrition (with some classes at the school in the city, an option for any distance student, but very doable for those of us that live close to New York). I imagine being a certified Holistic Health Counselor will marry beautifully with being a yoga teacher and I'm happily dreaming of the possibilities ahead, both in virtual workshops/classes and in real life brick and mortar offerings as well.
I love to feed people.
It's going to be an amazing year and it officially begins in May. Between now and then there are plenty of warm-up classes and orientations to keep me busy and excited. Above is the first shipment of my books, and an iPod fully loaded with audio and video classes taught by some of the world's greatest minds in medicine, nutrition and spirituality. The online virtual classrooms that students have access to are simply astounding. At this early point in the program, I am nothing but impressed with the vast, well-organized level of resources, support and materials available to students.
I hope you don't mind coming along on this journey with me. There is nothing quite like personal growth and evolution and I expect I'll be sharing a good bit of my experience right here in these pages.
Speaking of evolution... how about a revolution? Will you be checking out Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution tonight? I'll be tuning in for sure...
Have yourself a great weekend, and please know the support of like-minded souls such as yourselves is a gift that I treasure.
