Do you struggle with loving your body and eating what's right for you?

Do you sometimes eat to feel better, even if you're not physically hungry?

…then feel guilty after?

You are not alone. 

This dynamic of craving-bingeing-guilty is a brilliant subconscious system, designed to serve us in some fundamental way.

In most cases, it provides a momentary feeling of relief when we experience physical or emotional discomfort.

But what causes YOU to do this is what we can find out together. 

I've created a unique and powerful blend of coaching techniques—backed by my own personal experience—to help you get to the root of what's going on between you, food, and your body.

And once we figure out what's going on, we can create a new way to move forward. 

I don’t dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It’s not about following lists of restrictions of good and bad foods. I'm not about dealing with the surface symptoms of emotional eating...

I'm about getting to the bottom of what's going on and building a fulfilling life from the ground up together, so food is no longer the go-to, and you start to really love your body—and your life. 

 
 

"Because of Ali, I finally broke out of my safety shell that I was so unhappy in."
—Christinna, 17

"Ali holds a healing and loving space that is deep and profound. In her presence, healing doesn't just 'happen,' it's INEVITABLE!" 
—Cora, 33

"I had been living the past couple of years completely out of touch with my body and its needs. After only one session, I now find myself checking in with my body a couple of times each day, each time with love, compassion, and inquisitiveness.  I feel much more integrated and whole as a result of our session. Thank you, Ali, for introducing me to such an amazing tool."
—Isha, 30

"Ali Dryja is amazing. Her work is powerful and like nothing I've ever experienced before. If you're even a little bit curious what it feels like to be held gently and changed deeply around how you connect to your body and Spirit... Take her up on her program. She's the best." 
—Katie, 52

"Ali helped me to heal the bonds of love and connection with my body. Now she and I work together to get my needs met, explore the rocky coasts where past fear meets present reality and live life from a place of wholeness rather than separation. If you want to heal the relationship with your body, take Ali up on her program. It will be time well spent. I thank Ali so very, very much for sharing her gifts with me. Our work together has been both gentle and holistically altering."
—Laura, 38

"Ali is amazing at her craft! She provided a very safe and supportive space for me to explore my inner truth. The questions she asked me while guiding me through a meditation were perfect. She helped me to hone-in on what my body was feeling and saying. The questions coupled with her warm, soothing voice as well as the depth of her guidance helped me to open up to a place within myself that I hadn't accessed before and for that I'm eternally grateful!"
—Emily, 35

“Ali's coaching is a life changer! My sixtieth birthday is just a couple months away and I am now healthier, more fit and happier with myself and my body than I was when I was a young woman. Ali's gentle yet powerful approach works! She helped me discover ways to seamlessly incorporate healthier living into MY life. I'm writing this review five months after completing Ali's program—the lost 10 pounds have stayed lost, and the love and appreciation for Allison's help stays very much alive!”
—Maureen, 59

"I have made some real changes because of Ali's advice, inspiration and motivation. Before our calls I felt very stressed, anxious, and I was ignoring my feelings. Ali really helped me acknowledge these feelings, which in turn cured a lot of my health issues (stomach problems, acne, overeating, energy crashes). I finally feel like I am accepting myself for who I am and focusing on the positive not the negative!"
—Katherine, 30

“Working with Ali over many months was not only beneficial in changing my diet to a more healthy and satisfying one, but taking a look at my motivations in my daily life, as well. Her gentle ways and powerful insight enabled me to see myself objectively and make changes accordingly in my lifestyle. This was a valued educational experience for me and I would highly recommend this wonderful coach.”
—Jeannie, 65

 
 

Like a lot of women, I grew up thinking that I wasn’t thin or beautiful enough. 

I not only hated how I looked on the outside, but I also hated how I felt inside. I remember having raging emotions that seemed too intense, irrelevant, or silly, so I taught myself to ignore them by stuffing them down with food. 

In my late 20's, after years of overeating, dieting, starving myself, bingeing, obsessing over my weight, and being addicted to laxatives, I knew something had to change. I decided I couldn't live my life like this anymore. I felt too depressed and disconnected from my body, I had zero success with love, and I barely ever got my period. 

Once I made a decision to change, the right people appeared in my life. I worked with various teachers, healers, and mentors who showed me a new way. They taught me how to listen to my body, how to give myself what I need, how to eat with self-kindness, how to honor and embrace my femininity, and how to see my own beauty reflected back at me in the mirror. I am forever grateful for everyone who has helped me on this path. 

Now I help women in the same way I've been helped. I serve as a support, a friend, an agent of change for women who know in their hearts they are ready for a new, sustainable way to relate to food and their bodies.
