Hi, I'm Laura
A registered dietitian nutritionist, an intuitive eating coach, a yoga teacher and an unwavering optimist, dedicated to helping you heal your relationship with food and your body.
Restricting. Bingeing on ice cream and chips. Starting over on Monday.
Holding onto the pair of jeans from college, hoping to "one day fit into them again." Self-imposed weekly weigh ins. Feeling shame, regret, self-loathe. Juice cleanses with no favorite foods allowed. Dreaded workouts. Pressure to fit into a swimsuit. Counting calories.
Does any of this sound familiar to you?
If you've said yes, I want you to know that you are not alone.
I know what it's like to dislike the body you're in and to feel like you're not good enough.
I also want you to know that it doesn't have to be this way.
If you're tired of fighting food and your body, and want to be able to enjoy ALL FOODS without guilt, to live life with more balance and ease, then it's time to re-connect with your own body. This is known as Intuitive Eating.
Let go of the diet mentality and rediscover the joy of eating and movement.

Laura Iu, RD, CDN, CNSC, RYT, is a registered dietitian nutritionist, intuitive eating coach and yoga teacher in New York City. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from New York University and completed her internship in dietetics at Weill Cornell & Columbia Medical Center of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. She went on to work in New York City’s top hospitals, including Mount Sinai Hospital and NYU Langone Health. With her extensive experience working with a wide range of medical and surgical conditions, Laura combines nutrition-science while taking a holistic approach with every client.
Her mission is to help you feel nourished from the inside, out. She believes that true health is all encompassing — physical, emotional and mental wellbeing — not an external measure via shape or size. Her nutrition philosophy is rooted in the principles of Intuitive Eating from a Health At Every Size® perspective. Passionate about helping people heal themselves through food and joyful movement, Laura founded Nourish By Laura, where she now offers private yoga and nutrition therapy.
She received her yoga training through Strala. Here, she began to explore movement in a novel way—By moving her body in ways she felt good, she was able to connect with herself in a way that she hadn't experienced before. Her symptoms of IBS resolved, she became more connected, aware, creative, stronger and happier—from the inside, out. As a yoga guide, she helps people reconnect to their breath & body, empowering them to drop the stress, heal, and handle life’s challenges with ease. This is yoga that moves beyond the poses and off the mat, it’s about helping people feel good in their own bodies.
