Eat Breathe Thrive is a not-for-profit organization that helps individuals to recover from disordered eating and negative body image, and also works to prevent eating disorders through education and training.
Eat Breathe Thrive was created by Chelsea Roff, a former sufferer who found healing from an eating disorder through yoga and community support. Chelsea created Eat Breathe Thrive to give back the gifts that were given to her by yoga teachers, therapists, and community in her time of need. EBT programs teach individuals critical skills for long-term recovery, including how to track hunger and fullness signals, cope with difficult emotions, and overall create a sense of home in one’s own skin.
Our programs are designed to serve individuals who struggle with food and body image challenges on all ends of the spectrum, including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and negative body image. Our clinical programs, offered as a complementary treatment in treatment centers around the country, aim to shorten treatment, reduce relapse, and give clients skills for full recovery. Our community-based programs, offered in yoga studios, universities, and community centers worldwide, act as a transitional program for individuals coming out of treatment and help individuals who struggle at a non-clinical level recover from negative body image and disordered eating.
