UPCOMING WORKSHOPS


FUNDAMENTALS OF PLANT-BASED EATING

Increase the amount of plant-based food in your diet in a delicious and nutritionally comprehensive way!

Saturday 14 October, 12.30-3.00pm

Plant-based eating has been in the spotlight recently and the secret is out that it needn't be boring, difficult, 'dangerous' or unpalatable - rather, it can be some of the most delicious, satisfying and nutritionally dense food you've ever eaten!

Come and join the owner of The Raw Kitchen and long-term naturopath, Heath Daly, alongside owner of Holistic Health Nut, Aurora Gilbert, as they cover this comprehensive introduction to all things plant-based! They'll delve into the very best foundational knowledge of plant-based eating, answer common questions and concerns, and showcase five hand-picked plant-based recipes that demonstrate a breadth of the nutritional areas of focus, which of course are delicious too!

"There is no 'one perfect diet' for everyone. Health is dynamic and our nutritional requirements change constantly. The key is to start working it out for yourself; you can do this by starting with a diet dominated by whole, plant-based foods. We can get most, if not all of our nutritients from a plant-based diet, once we know how. My job is to show you how to get the very most out of plant-based eating." Heath

The recipes are easy, super tasty and designed to meet all of our key nutritional requirements, whilst giving you the
basic tools and skills to develop on from.

We'll be covering, teaching (and tasting!):

  • The key nutritional fundamentals in approaching a plant-centric diet
  • The most important ingredients and how to use them
  • The benefits and the pitfalls to avoid
  • Best plant-based protein sources and delicious ways to use quinoa in a variety of dishes
  • Nut milks and dairy replacements
  • A Persian inspired spiced cauliflower recipe
  • How to utilise seaweeds and medicinal mushrooms, with a nutrient dense dulse and shitake broth recipe as an example
  • The power of smoothies featuring 'the most nutrient dense smoothie' of all time

You'll have the opportunity to taste every recipe demonstrated, ask all the questions you can think of, and take home a copy of all recipes in a printed booklet.

All recipes are 100% free from gluten, dairy, refined sugar and egg and made using the finest whole food ingredients.

 

PLANT-BASED FAT BURNING FOODS

The foods we eat affect the concentrations of certain fat storage hormones; the key is to eat foods that provide maximum nutrition yet have minimal effect on these hormones.

Saturday 14 October, 4.15-6.45pm

Learn how to lose weight or maintain your optimal weight the healthy way using a diet of wholefoods, superfoods and natural medicines with Aurora Gilbert (World Body Building Fitness Model's gold medalist) and Heath Daly (Naturopathic Food as Medicine specialist and owner of The Raw Kitchen).

Knowing which carbohydrates to eat is critical for long term, sustainable weight loss. If you get it right, you can eat as much as you want and not put weight on; it is not about denial or scarcity it is about understanding energy metabolism and stoking up that 'metabolic fire' so as to burn fat. This is a holistic approach to weight loss and weight management using a plant-based diet.

Come along and be inspired to achieve your fitness and health goals. Throughout the afternoon you will:

  • Learn directly from a world champion fitness model as she shares how she used plant foods and superfoods to win gold at the world titles
  • Learn how to make easy and delicious recipes (demonstrated by Aurora with tastings of each dish for all participants)
  • Learn about the latest scientific breakthroughs on how to use natural foods and lifestyle hacks to switch on fat burning genes
  • Receive a complimentary workbook with meal plans on arrival, written exclusively for this workshop by Heath and Aurora

All recipes are 100% free from gluten, dairy, refined sugar and egg and made using the finest whole food ingredients.

Sunday 2 July, 9.30-4.30pm

Join Heath Daly (naturopath & owner of The Raw Kitchen) and Sheldon Leon (Joyous Journey Yoga) for a wonderful day immersed in yoga, nutritional medicine and positive lifestyle tips!

"Each day is an opportunity to invest in your health and the key is to keep it simple. Optimal health is experienced by repeating healthy activities, as a holistic lifestyle will incorporate actions throughout the day that keep the body and mind expressing positivity and joy. This means that on at least 5 out of the 7 days in the week, we want to be practicing conscious breathing, drinking, eating, thinking and moving. You don't need to know everything about health to be healthy, you just need to know the basics and then repeat them over and over again."


For those that came to the first immersion into yoga self practice, we would love to invite you back for the ‘continuation of the journey’ deeper into the art of yoga life and the craft of food as elixir, as both sacrament and entertainment. For those that have not been to a collaboration between Sheldon and Heath before, we invite you to join us for a wealth of information, as both of these practitioners are leaders in the field of holistic lifestyle medicine, with over 40 years experience between them. They will take you through a journey of empowering lifestyle practice, designed to give you the practical steps to take home and use straight away:

  • Enjoy a warm herbal elixir upon arrival, crafted by Heath as the perfect kick off to the day
  • Learn a simple and highly effective meditation technique and the power of the breath
  • Move through a progressive yoga class with Sheldon with corrections and adjustments
  • Enjoy a catered 100% plant-based wholefood lunch by The Raw Kitchen and Gypsy Elixirs
  • Learn with Heath as he takes you through The Yoga of Food covering - The 5 Elements and how to balance your constitution with food
  • Finish off the day with a final summarizing session, Q&As and kombucha drinking!

THE ART OF FERMENTATION

The most powerful tool in your health tool kit

Sunday 18 June, 2.30-5.30pm

Learning the art of fermentation is one of the most powerful self-care skill sets you can embrace to increase your overall health and well being. Best yet, it is INCREDIBLY EASY, affordable and rewarding once you know how!

But why ferment? It's now understood that good health begins in the gut; the most important 'organ' in thebody is in fact the microbiome (the healthy microbes living in the bowel) - so whether it's improved immunity, the anti-flammatory effects or mood enhancement that you're chasing, it's the bowel microbes that set you up for optimum health. It therefore becomes important to appreciate the role that fermented foods play in supporting a healthy microbiome.

Join Heath & Aurora as they guide you through the following:

  • Sauerkraut
  • Kimchi
  • Kombucha
  • Ginger bug 'ginger beer'
  • Water kefir
  • Fermented nut cheese

You'll have the opportunity to taste every recipe demonstrated, ask all the questions you can think of, and take home a copy of all recipes in a printed booklet.

You'll first learn how to feed and nourish your body with nutrient dense foods (including finding out exactly which foods these are and how best to utilise them) before discovering and learning about the best products to be using on our skin topically. PLUS, you'll learn how to create these yourself (!) without spending hundreds of dollars on store bought brands.

  • Lifestyle tips and DIY options to create and maintain healthy, glowing skin

 THE JOY AND LOVE OF YOGA
WITH SHELDON LEON

No matter if you are a first timer or an advanced senior yoga practitioner, this workshop will open your mind and body to new places or strength, flexibility, and a new sense of empowerment through your practice.

Yoga is about taking the steps to grow and vibrate gracefully with ease and comfort. So that you are aligned and open for the life force to flow - creating a youthful body, mind and spirit.

Sheldon Grant Leon's yoga style stems from almost 20 years teaching thousands of people here in Australia, Asia and America. He was formally trained in Hatha, Vinyasa and Iyengar, so with this classical yoga background, he then creates and weaves his intuitive spirit into the other influences of his life (being dance-jazz, classical and modern, and gymnastics). Sheldon loves teaching his students what yoga is truly about, in all its forms and manifestations.
“I was always competitive, strong and determined, but not until yoga found me did I start to understand and learn how to open my heart fully to the true meaning of soft and hard, yin and yang, fire and water.”
