Catriona Hughes before and after joining The Academy
The Academy by Karen Daly has proved to be a huge success since opening at 3 Jocelyn Mall in June.
Located opposite The Home Bakery, the Academy will hold an open night this Tuesday at 7pm so people can see what it’s all about. There will also be special offers and prizes on the night.
Catriona Hughes has recently joined the Academy’s health and wellness team.
Catriona is a proud wife and mum to four beautiful girls living in Jenkinstown. She began her career as a registered nurse and midwife and then spent a number of years studying and practising holistic therapies. She is qualified in reflexology, Reiki, Hopi Ear Candling, therapeutic use of oils and many more.
Having lost over 2 stone with Karen Daly in the Academy, Catriona became passionate about healthy eating and the impact food has on the body. With lots of motivation, learning and encouragement along the way she found the journey to health and happiness easier than ever and looks forward to helping others achieve their weight loss dreams. She is currently studying a Diploma in Holistic Nutrition and having completed her Academy training Catriona is excited about opening her own weekly classes.
She said: “I cannot wait to welcome people to The Academy, where they will learn so much about, food and nutrition as well as what works for their body and how to set goals and achieve them.
“I will run a half hour session at 10am every Tuesday and every second week I do a live cookery demo. This gives people an opportunity to learn new skills that will satisfy their body’s needs and help them enjoy delicious, nutritious foods forever.”
Her expertise in mindfulness of the body and soul from her holistic training fits well within the Academy teachings. Catriona will focus on helping you release the body’s natural narcotics and elevate your mind to reach your goals. Having lived with fibromyalgia for 15 years Catriona found that holistic practices helped her to alleviate symptoms overtime.
The Academy was opened in 2013 by Karen Daly founder of Slender Choice. Karen has worked for over six years in Weight Management and is completing her Masters in Weight Management this academic year. The Academy is built on a foundation of learning and fun and each week you will pick up nuggets of information that will change how you eat and live forever. The Academy teachings are all evidence based, no foods are banned and all is enjoyed in their fun, retro Academy on Jocelyn Mall!
The results speak for themselves, local lady Elaine Bates has lost almost six stone in six months with many others achieving their goals weekly. Food is the order of the day with fab recipes including chicken pie, chicken curry, Big Mac in a bowl and chicken in black bean sauce incredibly popular with members.
Catriona is so excited to begin this new journey with The Academy and you can contact her on 0868512466.
With Karen, Kathleen and Linda by her side she is ready to introduce and enlighten you on how to be the best version of you possible.
