Whole Health for Performers
All the health lessons you never learned in school, for Dancers, Singers & Actors
Whole Health for Performers
A scientifically-based mind-body approach to get the most out of yourself,
so you can focus on creating the performance of a lifetime.
THIS COURSE IS FOR: people who want to know how to prevent gastrointestinal issues at performance time, get the timing of food for ENERGY, overcome barriers to healthier living, and find out what NOT to do performance (and every-) day. It's for performers (community, regional, high school), directors, musicians, and drama or dance teachers.
THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR: top-tier athletes, pro ballerinas, or those who are not invested in creating a healthier lifestyle.
Hi! My name is Libby Parker, and I am a Registered Dietitian (or nutrition expert) with both a Bachelor's and a Master's Degree in Nutrition Science. I specialize in eating disorders, and am finishing an advanced credential as a "Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian" from the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. I am also a performer (singer/dancer/musical theatre), and love to work with and educate performers on better health practices.
I have been teaching nutrition classes at a local college both in-person and online for several years, and decided to bring my experience to YOU in the comfort of your own home - no admissions application necessary!
To learn more about what I do when I am not teaching, please check out my website HERE.
I hope you enjoy the lessons! Leave me a comment in the course you take.

"I’ve only just started Whole Health for Performers and the course has helped me in these ways:
1. I bought new, effective running shoes and threw out my sub-par ones that weren’t cutting it, and were enabling my less active ways.
2. I’ve been eating more healthy, balanced meals. Not always, but more often, and I’m reaping the benefits, and developing a craving for better foods as well.
3. Due to becoming more aware and healthy, I’ve noticed what’s been ailing me, and unfortunately, being a pothead wasn’t the best thing for me. So I’ve given weed up for a month and my stomach and mind are clearer. Who knew that excessive amounts of a drug that I thought was helping my stomach and mood was part of what was causing negative effects, in the gastro-intestinal and anxiety department?
Thanks Libby for helping me be more self-aware and getting me more on track! I need this in order to finish my song cycle, tackle my album release with my band and, hell, live longer and more anxiety free! I have OCD and this kind of awareness is exactly what I need."

"I feel so much healthier at the end of this course than I did in the beginning, because I am healthier. That really says a lot for me too because usually I am so exhausted by the end of [the semester], I'm shocked I make it through. Today, I feel like I could go [another semester]!"
