Katrina McGiffin MSN, CYT
Katrina McGiffin is a Nutritionist who works with people, tired of chasing the next trendy diet, to find an authentic relationship with food and eating.
Katrina believes that eating can be joyful and guilt free. That the wisdom inherent in every body acts as the best nutrition guide you could dream of, if you let it. That there is no need to have a battle of the wills to be healthy. Katrina believes that true health comes easily when you step out of your mind and into your body.
As a Nutritionist and Yoga Teacher, Katrina has assisted people in all types of settings to discover a healthy way of life that is personally attainable for them. From active military personnel, to busy parents, to high level executives, Katrina has provided guidance for each person to find a path with food that works.
Katrina is a Certified Yoga Teacher. While her teaching is influenced by many teachers with whom she has trained, she completed her teacher training with Ana Forrest in 2005. Forrest yoga resonated deeply with Katrina on both a physical and spiritual level. Additionally, Katrina completed her pre-natal yoga teacher training in 2014 with Bridget Boland and Lauren Wessinger.
Katrina holds a Master’s Degree in Dietetics from Bastyr University, a leading school for Naturopathic Medicine and Natural Health.
