Join this dietitian lead workshop series to provide guidance in building confidence around healthy habits. Intuitive eating is a weight inclusive practice to empower those who have been through the dieting ringer to re-nourish all parts of their lives. I lead a group of eager learners through the ten principals of Intuitive Eating during an eight-week series of nutrition therapy in order to cultivate compassion for renewed food relationships.
Send me a message to begin exploring the more joyful alternative to dieting, and develop community support in standing up against diet culture.
All experiences welcome!
