Meet Samahita Nutritionist Tracy McDonald
Tracy is passionate about helping people to regain vibrancy, radiant health and well-being through educating them about nutrition, yoga and mind-body holistic therapies. She loves helping others learn a daily practice in order that they can evolve towards greater self-awareness and self-acceptance, which she has had to painstakingly go through herself (and still conscientiously works on every day).
She believes in the healing power of foods and natural herbal supplements, and Hippocrates’ veracious saying: “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” She has seen food help, with consciousness, as much as it can hinder with lack of consciousness, and is committed to assisting people in shifting into a “helping,” honoring relationship with bodies and food.
Tracy is also a mind-body-spirit integrative therapist, practicing and teaching cranial-sacral and polarity therapy for over 5 years. Tracy is blessed to have a personal Ashtanga yoga practice since 2004, and pranayama practice since 2011, which have both already been through several evolutions in this lifetime – and they just keep evolving!
She is blessed to have completed 600 hours of formal yoga teacher training in the magical space of Samahita Retreat. Nutritionally, she has completed Natalia Rose’s PhDetox program, has her Clinical Nutrition degree as a Certified Nutritionist Consultant from the Natural Healing Institute of Naturopathy in San Diego, California, USA, and is currently completing The Southwest Institute of Healing Arts’ Holistic Nutrition program.
