Either way, it leaves many feeling unsatisfied with their food. Because eating is often done in a communal setting, breaking those habits and healing the relationship is also best done in a community. This passion for healing and feeling good is what brought Michelle to her current path of mindful eating. As a student of mindful eating since 2011, Michelle then honed her skills and brought that passion to others by teaching the practice in 2014.
