Informal Classes: What can students expect out of your class?
Blessing Anyatonwu: They will learn new ways to fit healthy living and long term lifestyle change into their busy lives! Most people think that it is difficult to eat healthy with a hectic schedule but it can be done without the guilt of dieting.
IC: What are you most excited about sharing with your students?
BA: Helping them come up with ways to create a healthier lifestyle on their terms. I help students come up with ways to eat and live healthier (while managing stress) without sticking to strict diets and guilt.
IC: Please tell us a little about your background.
BA: I have a holistic health practice where I provide nutritional counseling and chiropractic care. I use my knowledge of the human body to tailor nutritional expertise to the needs of my clients. Whether they are looking to reduce inflammation and pain in their joints, maintain their weight or increase their energy naturally.
IC: What do you as the instructor learn from working with your students?
BA: When I work with students it exposes me to new perspectives and struggles that come with long term lifestyle change (eating healthy, exercise and stress management). It allows me to better understand where they are coming from and work with them to come up with creative ways to live healthier.
Blessing’s class, Stress and Stress Management, takes place on Saturday, March 8.
