The fall season is related to the lung and large intestine organs. In this class we will cover foods and lifestyle that support these organs and thus your health throughout the fall and into the winter months.

Not simply a diet, Macro recognizes the profound effects food, environment, activities, and attitude all have on our body-mind-emotions. As the seasons change, our diets and available foods do as well. Using macrobiotic philosophy as our foundation we will look at the foods and methods of cooking associated with this time of the year and the organs that they are linked to. We will make a variety of vegan, gluten free, macrobiotic recipes to nourish the body and inspire us in this season.

Angelica Kushi is a yoga teacher, health & wellness coach, aerial performer and stunt woman. Born and raised in a macrobiotic home, her education stems from a lifetime of living a holistic lifestyle. Her grandparents, Michio and Aveline Kushi, were the pioneer educators of macrobiotics in the USA and across the world. Combined with the scientific knowledge of her father as a nutritional epidemiologist, Angelica's unique family upbringing created the perfect foundation for holistic health steeped in science, using wisdom from east, west, ancient and modern. Her formal training is from the Kushi Institute, Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and extensive studies in yoga and Tibetan Buddhism with the Asian Classic Institute and Yoga Studies Institute. Her passion is to provide people with easy and inspiring ways to live a healthy lifestyle so they can live out their wildest dreams.
