Well Now: A Health at Every Size Class

Offered in 8 2-hour sessions in the Spring and Fall, this course helps attendees feel better about eating and weight using a non-diet approach called Health At Every Size (HAES). You can read more on HAES practice here [pdf].

You'll learn how to:

  • Tune into your body signals
  • Embrace body respect
  • Replace eating guilt with gentle nutrition
  • Move from food panic to food autonomy
  • Heal from body shame
  • Practice mindful eating
  • Explore the bigger picture of health and wellbeing
  • Learn compassion for yourself and others


The Well Now HAES approach has been shown to improve health measures such as blood pressure, heart rate, and blood sugars, as well as increase rates of moderate exercise, and most importantly, increases your sense of self-compassion, self-confidence, and wellbeing.

The Details:
This life-changing class is $385. Early registration discounts may be available.
