About Melanie Monaco

Intuitive Eating, Integrative Nutrition, Mindful Movement melaniemonaco.com

Hey there! Iā€™m Melanie Monaco, a Certified Integrative Nutrition Expert, Yoga + Fitness Instructor, and Eating Psychology Coach.

I help women who have struggled with yo-yo dieting be able to freely eat the foods they enjoy, cultivate a body they love unconditionally, and develop lasting confidence.

After spending nearly over a decade of my life biting the hooks of diets promising 'easy/simple results' and being left not only disappointed, but hating my body even more... I knew something needed to change. 

I went on a journey of discovering how to feel healthy and confident without deprivation, guilt, or shame. 

97% of women struggle with a negative body image. I have definitely been one of those women, AND I have come out on the other side (thank goodness!) Unfortunately, because our dieting culture encourages these body image issues, so many women are left: 

  • Feeling overwhelmed by the wellness industry

  • Anxious around food

  • Attaching self-worth to a number on scale

  • Detached from their body's inner wisdom  

I created The Self-Love Lifestyle to offer a step-by-step individualized approach that helps women

  • Cultivate a healthier diet and lifestyle with ease

  • Create a confident and loving body-image

  • Turn emotional eating into enjoying true nourishment

  • Fall in love with their body and life  

I not only share what I learned on my own journey of healing my harmful dieting patterns and negative body image, but I also offer all of my knowledge as a graduate of Nutrition School, as a Yoga and Fitness Instructor, and Eating Psychology Coach to the women in my programs.

I work with women who, like me, are looking to leave behind a negative body image and anxiety around food, so they can feel grounded, glowing, and grateful for their body and life. Women who are ready to fall deep into self-love.

I am a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I was trained at Yogaworks in Santa Monica and Goodyoga in Brooklyn, NY and am an E-RYT (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher) through the Yoga Alliance. I am a certified Reiki Therapist through Glowing Heart Reiki School, and an AFFA-Certified Group Fitness Instructor. I have trained under Clarissa Pinkola Estes, author of Women Who Run With The Wolves and Shaman and Sacred Artist, Heyoka Merrifield. I am a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, with a focus in Psychology, Mythology, and The Performing Arts.
