Paleo Nutrition and Primal Living Course (12 x  2 hour sessions, February to May, 2015)

Comment: Carolyn provided me with so much information throughout the 12 week Paleo Nutrition and Primal Living course. Carolyn taught this course with so much dedication and passion that gave me the motivation and support I needed to try out new ideas and approaches each week. This course not only covered primal living, it also taught me to look at health in a completely new way. The information that Carolyn gave me along with her willingness to share just what her journey has been like gave me a lot of inspiration. Carolyn is very involved with all of her students and has a beautiful nature! Her paleo treats are so delicious! It was sad to see the 12 weeks finish, but i I would recommend these courses to anyone who wants to take control of their health, and wants support along the way. Thank you Carolyn (Sally Harris)

Comment: Carolyn, thank you so much for 12 weeks of enlightening Saturday afternoons. I really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and have learnt a lot. I’m looking forward to reading quite a few of the books you’ve recommended too! Thanks too for all the yummy paleo treats – they certainly inspired me in the kitchen. I’m looking forward to a happier, healthier future (Joy Walton)

Comment: I would just like to thank you sincerely for my wonderful journey in learning all about Paleo Nutrition and Primal Living.  It has opened my eyes to a healthier alternative life style and given me the tools to achieve it. (Julie Cutting)
