Will power & you
Will power is a necessary ingredient for creating new behaviors that improve health and wellness. But why is it so hard to hold onto. This workshop/information session speaks directly to that question; offers bio/psycho/social explanations; and focuses on strategies for holding on to willpower through asana, pranayama, and mindful awareness meditation.

January arrives and we decide: Enough of this unhealthy behavior, I am going to change! Our intentions are good, our goals are set the strategies are put in place. But, by the end of January the will is waning, the rationalization starts, and visions of a new lifestyle begin to fade as old habits return. Where did my will-power go?
There are many 21 to 90 day challenges out there promising effective, long term change if you will just control yourself during the challenge. But changing behavior takes more than a few weeks of determination, and a lot more than an intense and short-term exercise regime. It takes knowledge, critical thinking, goals and strategies, and the skills of mindful awareness.
Join Martha for an introduction to Will-Power workshop. In this 2-hour information session we will:
• A critical look into the biology of will-power with easy, accessible language and descriptions.
• Explore how the intentions we set become derailed by our thought process.
• Bring awareness to the process of will-power’s strengths and weaknesses.
• Begin to uncover strategies for holding on to your will-power.
We will engage briefly in gentle yoga and mindful awareness meditation. No experience with yoga or meditation is needed. This workshop is an excellent introduction to the Mindful Eating 8 week session that will begin in March (to be announced).
