Sometimes the practice of Mindful Eating can be a struggle if your relationship with food is challenging. In this program you will learn how to bridge the practice of mindful awareness from your meditation or yoga practice to your plate.
Shirley Kessel, RYT, has worked in healthcare for over twenty-five years and has learned that health and wellness stem from tuning into and trusting your inner wisdom rather than relying on the many mandates from diet experts. Her center of attention is on teaching midlife women about the no-diet/self-care lifestyle.
Shirley holds a BS in Medical Dietetics from Penn State University. As a practitioner of yoga for over fifteen years, she is a Yoga Therapist who has completed a yoga teacher training called, “Reconnect with Food”®, a systematic, life-transforming, yoga-based eating disorder treatment program.
