Hungry: Trust Your Body. Free Your Mind.

While in recovery after a second relapse with an eating disorder, Jennifer made the practices of classical yoga the foundation of her recovery.  Eating disordered patterns create separation between the body and mind.

She is the founder of Yoga for Eating Disorders, creator and host of Real Body Talk, an online interview talk show, and author of the book Body Mindful Yoga, and an international speaker.  Connect with Jennifer at www.yoga4eatingdisorders.com On Instagram at yogaforeatingdisorders On Facebook at yoga4eatingdisorders Join Jennifer’s private Facebook group Yoga for Eating Disorder Community.
