She introduced herself, and only years later did I realize how sisterly we were. It was Beverly Price – a dietitian-yoga teacher blending the two to help people with eating disorders.
Recently, I had the honor of speaking to the Michigan Association of Nutrition and Dietetics on Yoga and Nutrition. My colleague, Annie B Kay is also a pioneer in this field and wanted to share her blog on Yoga Therapy in Dietetics.
Annie states in her blog, “Those of you who have known me for a while know that I have been combining nutrition with yoga since before there was so much great science explaining the mechanisms of why it’s helpful. Yoga, it turns out, makes us better choice-makers. Yoga also creates an internal biochemistry that calms inflammation and when practiced regularly can be protective against chronic disease.”

Mountains are like life. As you climb your way up, you will encounter many challenges.
As I climbed Cathedral Rock, a famous landmark Mountain in Sedona, Arizona, this past March with my daughter and her friend, I reflected back on the past year. I went from transitioning a thriving business, that I had built from the ground up, to leaving it behind with new caretakers as I began to move forward onto the next phase of my life. Although not easy at first, I realized that the letting go process was an important step in this transition. What seemed to be harsh moments were actually gifts in disguise, as I embraced each wave with gratitude.
As I move into this next chapter, I now understand my “next” and trust that my life experience will serve me in the face of any challenge. As you take this all in, you too may be at the next crossroad with many decisions ahead. Know and understand the following:
Mountains are like life. As you climb your way up, you will encounter many challenges. Stay with your intention – believe in yourself. You may encounter loose gravel that may cause you to slip and derail you. Don’t go down that path. Follow the path on the mountain that is made of solid and sturdy rocks, as these are the foundation of the mountain’s integrity. Stay in your truth.
On your climb, forces of collusion may try to shift your balance, while the elements that you once thought were your support, are now your foe. Know that what appear to be adversities are truly powerless as they operate in fear. Be aware of your surroundings – know who and what you can and cannot trust. Remember that as you remain authentic, substantial ground will support you and on your path, you will attract same.
Mountain climbing, like life, is not a destination, but a journey to be enjoyed.

Hello and welcome to my blog!
I wanted to update you as to the acquisition of my business, the Inner Door Center, Eating Disorder Treatment Center this past September 2016. Recently, I have left the center, yet still plan to remain active in the national and local Eating Disorder professionals community through consulting, lecturing, board positions, supervising and mentoring, along with taking time for myself.
Through my certification as a Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) through the International Association of Yoga Therapists, I will be offering Yoga therapy specialty training programs in eating disorders, as affiliated with Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. I hope you will join me on my next retreat in Nicaragua, February 2018.
In addition, through my credentialing as an International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (iaedp) Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian Supervisor (CEDRD-S), I am available to provide supervision to registered dietitians on the traditional path to becoming a CEDRD.
It is said that Yogini’s don’t grow old, but grow wiser. I hope that you will find wisdom in my writings and look forward to keeping in touch through my blog, along with website and other social media outlets.
