Body Mind Connection


A Holistic Approach to Weight Loss and Body Image

An 8-Module Online Program with  Alana Cahoon 

Founder of Grow 2 B U, LLC 

Discover the Core Steps to shift your mindset and shape your body into your own physical masterpiece!

You’re striving to embrace each day feeling physically fit and filled with vitality.

If you’re like me you aspire to achieve optimal health by nurturing your body with wholesome foods and engaging in activities that excite you.

But the challenge lies in time constraints, making it seem like another item to add to your to-do list.

Imagine feeling strong, sexy and vibrant every day!

Picture the satisfaction of confidently fitting into your clothes, turning heads as you walk.

You may think you have to carve out time to get fit. The truth is, it’s simple. All it takes is a commitment to self improvement. 


As you start exercising and nourishing your body with nutrients, your life will awaken, and you’ll experience a burst of newfound energy. This vitality will infuse happiness into your life.

You’ll actually find that you have more time to do the things you love, like spending quality time with friends and loved ones. Shopping for new trends. Traveling to exotic places. Spending a week on a luxury cruise. 

Prioritize yourself by shifting from overthinking to embracing your body.  

It's time to make YOU a priority. It is time to get out of your head and into your body.

The way is clear, and this transformation is achievable for you. I’ve successfully guided numerous clients along this path to abundant health.

That’s why I created the Body Mind Connection program, to help you navigate a myriad of diets and exercise routines to find what works with your body, inspiring you to be excited by your new sense of health and wellness.

In this 8-week transformative journey you will discover how to prioritize your SELF and develop a new relationship with your body, treating her or him like your best friend.  

I promise you will find time for yourself, and make your physical, emotional, and spiritual health a priority.  


In this program you will discover:

  • Your unique body-mind type and how you respond to food
  • The 7 W’s of Eating
  • Identifying an exercise or movement that excites you
  • Removing blocks keeping you from your healthiest self

You'll acquire a potent toolkit to infuse balance and fulfillment into your daily life, fostering inner peace and external joy.

By the end of this course, you’ll experience:

  • A weight management plan that applies to your own rhythms
  • Heightened self value
  • Increased vitality through self awareness, stress reduction and exercise
  • How to shift your mindset into the realization of your goals

In your newfound state of vitality, you will live intentionally, creating an abundance of health, wealth, and happiness while synchronizing your relationship with both your body and the world around you.

My Personal Story

One of the most challenging times in my life began when I was as an aspiring actress and singer in NYC. After nearly every audition, I heard the same thing. 

“You’re not young enough. You’re not blonde enough, tall enough or thin enough.”

I was devastated.

I even ran into to a woman who remembered me from an audition. She recalled my ‘impressive monologue’ and was shocked to get the role herself.

I wasn’t surprised.

She was tall, blonde and thin.

There was nothing I could do about my height unless I walked around in heals all day. I had no interest in becoming a blonde. And my age, well, on paper I suppose it could be fudged, but not in reality.

What I could alter was my weight. I tried every diet that existed. None of them worked.

 I was inspired then to explore holistic health even more deeply. I became certified as a natural health professiona. I studied Ayurveda, and learned that our bodies are uniquely different, each and every one dancing to our own rhythm.

Out of my own journey has come a mindfulness approach to assist people like you to start where you are with self acceptance and to trust that you can feel and look amazing in your own skin.

This holistic approach to weight loss and body image brings awareness to one’s body and mind, creating a safe space for your emotions where you can cultivate self love.

Developing a positive mindset is the key ingredient to your new daily diet and exercise routine.

I invite you to come on a journey with me to empower your own life adventure and an experiential ‘Body Mind Connection’ program. Exactly as you are today!
