and speaking about passion…I am excited to share my space here, coming up next week, with Shamra Byrnes, as my guest blogger, who is over the top excited about the nutrional health coaching work she is doing, and she is delighted to share some insights with you dancers. To see her in action is healing of itself!

Shamra Byrne is a weight loss + emotional eating expert and founder of Natural Nutrition Health Coaching in Portland, Oregon. She encourages women to take an honest, heart-driven approach to health and weight loss which allows them to have a more tangible, messy, and free relationship with their bodies and their lives. By helping women awaken the inherent wisdom of their bodies, they are able to release deeply ingrained emotional eating habits and excess weight without
dieting, deprivation, or giving up chocolate.
