About Gabrielle:

I am a Registered Dietitian, RYT200, Certified Yoga for All Teacher, and an AIH ME-Yoga Facilitator.

My colourful path as a Dietitian for 35 years allowed me to help people in a field that I feel passionate about.

I worked in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, private practice, public health and college level teaching.

My motto - make small, simple, sustainable changes over time - an approach I firmly stand by because I know first hand how it cultivates a peaceful relationship to food while the alternative fuels the opposite. I have had the privilege of helping many people meet their nutrition and health goals this way, which reinforced it in my own life.

Yet, for society at large, and even for many of the clients I worked with, the struggles with food and body expectations are rampant. The constant cycle of extreme eating patterns in the endless pursuit of the perfect weight, size, shape. The shame, guilt and frustration - struggles stemming from deep seeded thoughts and beliefs primarily fueled by our diet and fitness culture/industry. The slow small sustainable, steady approach is great but it still doesn’t get to the root of why people eat.

I began to feel increasingly drawn to find more effective ways to help people overcome these challenges, so that they could live a full life, free from what the outer world attempts to convince them of. I used mindful eating approaches, including many of AIH's mindful eating resources but I still didn't feel I had enough expertise to help people dig deeper or even get them interested in digging deeper.

I felt frustrated and needed to find a different path.

As an avid fitness enthusiast, I have always been well aware of how moving our body makes us feel good, and optimizes our health. Beyond that, it cultivates a deeper connection to it.

This became more evident to me when yoga became a consistent practice for me in 2016. I began to experience a profound shift in the way I related to my body and my inner world. I became much more attuned with both, and with the messages they were giving me. It deepened my ability to listen, trust and follow my intuition in every aspect of my life, including my own eating.

I was absolutely convinced that it was the missing piece in helping people transform their relationship to food and their body and it stirred a deep curiosity within me to find out. A powerful tool to help people truly learn what was beneath their eating behavior.

Following my intuition, I signed up for Yoga Teacher Training so that I could share with others what yoga was doing for me. Within 2 weeks, I noticed a facebook event post by AIH for their first ME-Yoga retreat in Sedona in 2017. Without hesitation, I signed up! The retreat was a blessing, as it confirmed what was calling me - to weave mindful eating practice and yoga!

My focus over the past 2+ years has been on honing my yoga teaching skills and on deepening my practice and studies in yoga philosophy. I also became a ME-Yoga facilitator in May 2018, and again experienced the beautiful synergy between the two disciplines.

I am currently working towards the AIH Mindful Eating Coach certification as well as becoming an Empowerment Coach through S.W.A.T. Institute founded by Crystal Andrus Morrisette so that I can better serve my clients on a deeper level.

I have run 2 workshops so far, and am preparing plans for my next one. A labour of love, years in the making. Constantly learning and growing. I am thrilled!
