Nourish Your Foundation

Oct 5, 2015

The season of relaxation is on the horizon. The darker edges of the day are starting to move into our mornings and evenings with a gentle nudge that says …slow down.

Sometimes it is hard to hear, as our kids go back to school, workloads change, the final harvests of the summer garden and fruit trees yell from the backyard, and in many ways life rolls on as usual. Maybe the nudge gets covered up and you change gears but find the hours in the day are still bursting at the seams. Where is the time for relaxation in such a busy schedule? Some of it is good old fashioned, carving out the time.


On September 26th, at Watershed Wellness, we will be celebrating the technique and essential qualities of this approach with an evening of restoration. Nourish Your Foundation is a three hour workshop that brings to light the ways that a “restorative approach” can integrate and work with our busy days and many hats we wear. We will learn how to bring a slower approach to one of the most important ways that we nourish ourselves several times a day – through the way we eat.

Nourish Your Foundation will be led by our Nutritional Therapist and in house yoga instructor, Frankie Leigh Niwot. She has crafted a fantastic evening that will include an hour and a half long session of restorative yoga. This part of the evening will be complete with relaxing visualizations and breath work to calm the nervous system and bring us into a deeper understanding of how to regulate our body’s parasympathetic system. There is no need for previous yoga experience, as the positions are gentle and modifications are available for all body types.

Once you have explored and experienced this deep state of relaxation, we will begin to unlock the ways that these techniques can be used for their metabolic powers to enhance our digestive health, increase nutrient absorption, and unravel the biochemical ripple effects of stress.  You will also come away with some essential seasonal foods that assist this process even further to ensure that our digestive powers remain optimal.


This is a great opportunity for anyone who struggles with dieting, interrupted sleep, sluggish metabolism, stress or anxiety. We will get beneath the focus of what to eat and the packed schedules and understand that we have the power to change our approach. Experiencing the effects of guided, deep relaxation is the perfect way to tap into your quieter side this season.

Since there is LIMITED SPACE, this will be an intimate evening and REGISTRATION IS NECESSARY. The cost is $45, paid in advance to secure your spot.

Hi, I’m Frankie
Becoming a Functional Nutritionist was born out of my love of working in women’s health and my own health crisis that hit in 2011. It was then that I realized that the body cannot be taken for granted. With two cancer scares in one year, I decided to take my health into my own hands, guided by the intelligence of functional medicine. As a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, I use data and mindfulness techniques to motivate change. My client relationships are filled with loving connections and precise planning.
