Join Travel Channel host Kirsten Gum on a weekend retreat that will give you a kick in the pants on your journey to wellness. Two full days -- June 17-19 -- of yoga and hands-on raw food classes will provide you with a solid foundation for self-care for body, mind, and soul.
The first two Examiner readers to apply and mention this article will receive $300 off the full program cost, which includes all classes, meals made by Kirsten, and accommodations at the stunning L’Auberge de Sedona resort and spa.
Known best for hosting Treasure Hunters on the Travel Channel, as well as a sports journalist who covered NASCAR and the Tour de France, Kirsten has recently switched gears to focus on the healthy side of life, having embraced both the raw lifestyle and yoga with passion and determination.
“I’m not raw 24/7,” says Kirsten. “I’m about 75% raw. I’m not here to tell people what they shouldn’t eat. I’m here to introduce them to beautiful, nutritious (and delicious) food, which just so happens to have amazing healthful properties." These properties are purported to help give you energy and lose weight.
"A lot of people get into raw foods because they are diagnosed with a sickness," Gum says. "But why wait until something like that happens to you? Why not experience this energy awakening now? I consider myself a gourmet raw food chef and health concierge. I help wake you up to a conscious lifestyle by connecting you more closely with your energy source (food). It'll open up all areas of your life."
Although the retreat focuses on raw foods, attendees will come away with skills that can be used in all sorts of cooking, including knife skills, getting the most out of your juicer and food processor, and how to deal with difficult foods – such as opening a coconut. You'll learn how to make deliciously nutritious meals such as Gum's signature Berry Green Smoothie, and you'll discover a multitude of uses for that miracle green, kale.
