I’m a Registered Somatic Movement Therapist (RSMT) and a Certified Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analyst (CLMA). I’m also an avid researcher. With a deep passion and respect for the human body, I have been exploring ways to help others reclaim their personal power and embodied way of knowing through movement, nutrition, and holistic approaches to health.
I have an MFA in Modern Dance from the University of Utah, and have taught dance and somatic-based classes at Brigham Young University, Utah Valley University, and the University of Utah. I have also taught for the internationally recognized Integrated Movement Studies Programs.
Along with my passion for movement and the human body, I have a passion for play and creativity. I love being upside down, creating new dishes in the kitchen, and spending time with my husband and two children.

I’m Erica Hale, and I’m happy to be contributing to Thank Your Body! A homeschooling mom of 3, I write about family, faith and food at my blog, These Three Remain. I have a degree in Psychology from Westminster College in Salt Lake City (but I promise, I’m not psychoanalyzing you). After giving birth to our third child, I developed Celiac Disease…a turning point in the nutritional history of our family. We soon learned that our oldest child also has gluten intolerance. Forced to closely study what went into every bite of food that went on our table, I realized that the only way to avoid eating things I couldn’t pronounce was to make our food from scratch. Since then, our diet and health have improved and I have developed a passion for cooking, baking, and preserving whole, healthy food. When I’m not homeschooling, playing in the kitchen, or writing, I enjoy photography, gardening and hiking with my husband.
Liz lives in Connecticut with her husband, two cats (and a human baby on the way!) She is a licensed clinical social worker who made the transition into the nutrition world after struggling with a health condition that she healed through dietary changes. This experience made her even more passionate about food as medicine, the local food movement, and helping people connect with what’s on their plates. She is a licensed health coach through IIN, a Natural Food Chef certified by the Natural Gourmet Institute, and is currently in graduate school earning a degree to become a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS). You can follow more of Liz’s writing and recipes on her blog and wellness website, Dishingwell.com.
Hello! I’m Miranda Barnhouse and I love to create and to feel alive! As a college student, I decided that the best way to stay healthy, happy, and sane about what I surrounded myself with was to deny the instant-ramen-and-cheap-soap lifestyle doomed to people my age, and instead put my creativity to work using the real and nourishing resources around me to create the healthy life I wanted to live. I am a Music and Psychology student determined to make a difference in the health and happiness of others by creating remedies of all kinds. When I’m not sitting and researching or reading blogs, I love to write music, blend yummy and healthful teas, spend time outside, and pretend to be a movie critic.
