Lauren Anton shares “when people are so disconnected from their body this is when the disorder creeps up” on PHIT for a Queen.


  • Her role as a trainer in a gym gave her first-hand insight into the culture that contributes to eating disorders.  
  • Interesting fact that breathe work when going to school for acting helped her be able to use this as a mind-body connection tool.


  • Could be this disconnection a result of trauma?


  • Dispel the weight stigma of “what is a larger body in running?”


  • Feels that injuries can stem from negative thought processes about altering the body.


  • Self-compassion is honoring where my body is Today!


  • Can one separate their activities by intention for self and intention for disorder?
