{Ep. 027} Shira Brenner, From Disordered Eating to Body Love

In this episode I talked to my good friend Shira Brenner about:

  • How she experienced weight stigma as a child, and how that set her on a path to disordered eating.
  • How she found dance and yoga in a dark and sad time in her life. And how it both made her feel both connected and disconnected to her body at the same time.  
  • How she was suffering from anorexia for months, and simultaneously being praised by colleagues and friends on her “dedication”.
  • How she worked with an eating disorder therapist and dietitian to help her recover.
