Here are the highlights of my interview with Gina Tager: Mind Body Eating Coach on Women Developing Brilliance.
Gina Tager is a Body Mind Eating Coach, certified by the Institute for the Psychology of Eating.
She helps people heal their relationship with food, body, and Life itself through self-knowledge and body wisdom.
Her work is based on HAES (Health at Every Size) a movement that promotes body diversity.
She is passionate about helping people who are ready to stop the battle with their weight and their body in order to start embracing who they really are so they can create lasting wellbeing.
It was her personal motivation that brought her to this field. After cleaning out a lot of old beliefs, she started embracing the idea that you can be healthy and happy at every size/body type.
Having had personal experiences with body and weight issues, she now can channel that knowledge to women who come to her that previously struggled in shame and silence.
This empathy and understanding provide a deep connection, which in itself is very healing.
Because body diversity is such an ingrain value for Tager, she translates that to other aspects of her life and career. Meaning, she believes there is no 1 right way to do anything. She is also the first to say that even HAES may not work for every body and that’s OK.
You have to start with what “is” already. You need to look at the present and know what already exists and work from there.
She encourages you to stop for a second, do a fast check-in and see what motivates you. Ask what feeds you? What makes your soul sing? What are the different ways you can do it naturally?
Find the way that feels most comfortable to you.
Gina believes that the number of coaching hours per week, the size of her body, the size of her bank account, etc. are not the only determining factors of success.
She says we really need to look at other elements that contribute to well-being and happiness.
I love that Gina is not attached to titles or “shoulds.” Her integrative approach includes several self-care tools that she always personally vets before sharing wisdom on it.
She tailors her work to each client, using intuition to guide the ship where it will best serve and benefit the specific person, going as deep as the client chooses.
When it comes to accepting the various messages in her work, be it on the topic of spirituality or sexuality, Tager says, "Everyone is free to say I want a bite of this or no thank you.”
Gina and her team are working on an e-course.
This is exciting for the people that are interested in mind-body eating coaching but for whatever reason are unable to have one-on-one coaching sessions.
This way they can start embodying the knowledge and start turning it into action.
It'll be launching at the end of January 2019.
She is so passionate about healing, but my favorite quality is that she executes with sweetness and non-judgment. She doesn’t follow trends, she follows what feels natural and in the moment. I love that!
