I want you to know what Hungryoga is, who I am here to serve, why I choose everyday to do this work, and to share all I have to offer.
I started Hungryoga right after my yoga teacher training in 2013. At the time I was really struggling with my own sense of self. This showed up in many ways – binge eating, negative thought patterns, over-exercising, hating my job, tension in my relationships, feeling disconnected from my source (or my higher power), etc.
All of these struggles led me to the practice of yoga, mindfulness, eating psychology, and lifestyle coaching. Hungryoga came to me as I was beginning to open up to all these new possibilities for healing my traumas and self-worth wounds. Another meaning for “yoga” is “union” – and I was finding this sense of union with everything that I was learning. As I began to heal, I had this deep inner knowing, that I was supposed to share everything that I had learned.
At the core, Hungryoga is here to help women stop self-sabotage around food and body image so that they can use that energy towards building a lifestyle and/or career they love without sacrificing who they are deep down.
The results my clients receive are life changing. To go from feeling compulsive and shameful with food, and hating the skin you’re in – to finally feeling relaxed, non judgemental, content, and maybe even sexy?!
I know at one point I never knew if I’d be able to feel that way again. But after you know what I know, and you practice the tools that I give you, and there’s a deep desire for change… there’s no unlearning it, just practice. My past clients have found a sense of hope that ‘this to shall pass’. Relief that there is ‘light at the end of the tunnel’. And clarity in all aspects of their life. They want these results because they are so drained from self-sabotage, and all they want is to feel better about their “self”.
Working with me gives women the one-on-one support of a dedicated and loving coach. That cares just as much about who they are and how they are choosing to show up in the world – as their diet and what they are choosing to eat.
I believe that our pains, struggles, dis-eases are here to teach us how to grow and evolve into the person we are meant to be.
I believe our eating challenges are connected to work, money, relationships, family, intimacy, life stress, and more.
I also believe our thoughts, feelings and beliefs impact our nutritional metabolism and health.
What I want you to know is that you are NOT broken. There is nothing to be fixed. You don’t have to GIVE UP being YOU!!!
Working with me is simply an invitation to grow.
If you self-sabotage and are struggling, feel like you are the only one, and that there is nothing more you wish for than to just feel better about yourself – please reach out to me.
I’m so grateful to be able to share Hungryoga!
I was skeptical at first with the 'yoga side' of the healing, and now it's my favorite form of movement. I figured since it worked for her and helped her overcome binge eating than I ‘might as well give it a shot’.
I got what I came here for, in different ways in what I thought I would. I was hoping that I’d lose a lot of weight, which I didn't, but now I look at life differently, I’m more loving to myself, I feel better in the exact same body that I had before. And now I know how to honor my body. I’ve learned ways to overcome negative thoughts and I’ve really gone outside of my comfort zone which has been the best.
I think any girl struggling with binge eating, or anyone who is unhappy with their body or even any part of their life could benefit from working with Macy. I look at myself differently now and in a more accepting way. I really can’t imagine where I would be if I wouldn’t have done this. I’m really proud of myself for doing this, it was the best decision."
"I came to Hungryoga to find freedom from stress and guilt that I had around food and controlling exercise. I didn’t want my self worth to be reliant on what food I ate or how much exercise I was doing.
I felt like I was in the right place after my Discovery Coaching Call with Macy. I told myself that I was going to find the relief that I had been looking for, and I ended up getting what I came here for - even more than what I imagined.
I feel like a new person and like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Food isn’t a major issue anymore, and it used to consume my life. I would recommend working with Macy to anybody who struggles with their identity or finding who they are. I think they’d be able to figure that out through this program.Courtney Cook
I came to Hungryoga to get relief from feeling lost, and didn’t understand why I was self-sabotaging in many ways. I was just really tired of feeling that way. I wasn’t 100% sure I was in the right place, but had a really good feeling once I read Macy's testimonial on Facebook. It hit really close to home for me. I wasn’t skeptical about the program, but I had my doubts about truly coming to terms with how I was feeling and being able to change - and have the desire to do so. When I finally took Macy's advice and started doing artwork in the morning, I realized I wasn’t taking good care of myself. I was working out like crazy but wasn’t truly taking care of myself. I had to be okay with it being a slow process.
I feel like I got myself back - the me that I remember years ago. My goal wasn’t to lose a ton of weight - I knew that that couldn’t be the overarching goal. I had to change what was ‘eating at me’.
I would recommend Macy's coaching program to several types of people. Anybody that's feeling lost, like they have tried every program out there, currently taking tons of diet pills, going for a quick fix intead of taking care of themselvecs, binge eating or have any kind of digestion or stomach issues, people using food or alcohol as a crutch, and people who have faithfully worked out for years and can't understand why they haven't seen the results they desire.Penny Sheldon
You reminded me that this isn't just me, other people feel this way too. When you showed me that there are other adult picky eaters, the way that made me feel was incredible. It reassured me that as an adult I'm not alone in this. The comfort and support you provided was amazing. You're awesome Macy!Jordy Frankel
