PTP335 - Asha Gala Mindful
In: Podcast2

In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Asha Gala, the Lifestyle Clinical Director at Ethos Primary Care all about MBSR – Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Techniques. MBSR is not only a system Asha helps people use for sustaining a plant-based lifestyle, but for overall physical and mental health. It was really interesting to hear how her personal plant-based journey began to find a natural way to help her daughter despite her husband being a mainstream pharmacist. That ultimately led her to find MBSR. You’ll find out more about what that is and get some actionable tips for using it in your own life, including guided eating! So cool.

Asha Gala is the Lifestyle Clinical Director at Ethos Primary Care, a farm-based medical practice specializing in the connections between diet, lifestyle and the prevention and reversal of diseases. At Ethos, Asha works directly with patients, helping them make long-lasting lifestyle changes through lifestyle, nutrition and health coaching. Asha is a certified holistic nutrition coach and holistic health coach in New Jersey, through the Nutrition Education Institute. In addition to health coaching, Asha is currently working on becoming a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction teacher and is a major advocate of incorporating mindfulness and meditation for a more fulfilling and healthy life. Outside of Ethos, Asha enjoys dancing, meditation, music, hiking, and planning family trips.

    Extremely thought provoking. In today’s fast paced world of multitasking we are becoming like zombies and such techniques are the need of the hour
