Personal Day of Enrichment and Nourishment


Debra Brunk

Before becoming a nutrition consultant, I worked a number of stressful jobs in corporate America. Although I had a highly successful career, I was stressed and my health was not ideal. I decided that I needed to go back to school to learn approaches for treating the body and mind, naturally.

While learning about the differences between a healthy (balanced) body and a diseased (imbalanced) body, I also learned more about the mind-body connection, using food as medicine and effectively educating and supporting others in their health journeys. I also started teaching Kundalini yoga and found that I love to teach. It brings me great joy to see and hear my students’ amazement and excitement as they experience significant changes in their bodies and minds after just a handful of classes.

I love teaching and sharing my knowledge and experience to help others become more aware of their bodies, how they feel, what they can change and how to make those changes.

My educational background includes a MS in Nutrition & Integrative Health from Maryland University of Integrative Health and a PhD from Cornell University in Chemical Engineering and Biochemistry. I am a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) and Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT). I conduct one-on-one and group nutrition and lifestyle counseling with clients, teach Kundalini yoga classes and workshops and offer technical and educational consulting.
