Lina is a certified Well-Being Coach who helps women find freedom and joy around food by harnessing internal tools to experience a mindset shift in how they think about their bodies and well-being. Her approach is rooted in insights and tools from eastern and western thought on how to actualize emotional, mental, and physical well-being. Lina's teachings result from the mindset shift that began her recovery from an eating disorder after two decades of failed therapy sessions, Prozac prescriptions, hypnosis, and even meeting a monk. She believes the key to a sane relationship with food is developing self-awareness, self-responsibility, and freedom of choice. Lina leads mindfulness training sessions in organizations of all sizes. She's also a co-host of The Big Life podcast, which broadcasts live out of Full Service Radio at The Line Hotel in Washington, D.C. Lina is a Board Member at FRESHFARM, a non-profit in D.C. doing pioneering work in food access and nutrition education.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
