Yahweh Yoga Christian Yoga Teaching Academy Hosts Workshop on Weight Loss Through Raw Food and Healthy Christian Living

CHANDLER, AZ--(Marketwire - October 9, 2009) - Yahweh Yoga Christian Yoga Teaching Academy, in conjunction with Whole Foods Market in Chandler, Arizona, is presenting a raw food workshop to teach people how to lose weight and gain health by incorporating raw foods into a balanced Christian lifestyle.

"Our belief is that there are three parts to wellness: spiritual health, emotional health, and physical health," says Yahweh Yoga Co-Founder DeAnna Smothers. "But many Christians today only focus on spirituality and neglect their bodies and minds. Permanently losing weight requires all three wellness aspects to work together."

Raw Food Eating Demystified

According to Smothers, one of the most important aspects of losing weight is incorporating more organic, raw food into the diet. "Most people don't know how to prepare raw foods," Smothers says. "Workshop participants will learn how to prepare and get to taste exciting raw dishes."

The food demonstration will be taught by raw food authority Coleen Poiani. Colleen is an expert on detoxification of the body and works professionally with cancer specialists and anti-aging physicians helping patients transition into healthier lifestyles.

Developing Emotional and Spiritual Health

In addition to the raw food demonstration, Smothers will present information on the emotional and spiritual components of healthy Christian living. Workshop material will be excerpted from the "Eating and Healthy Living" course taught to yoga teacher trainees as part of the Yahweh Yoga Registered Yoga Teacher program.
