The Body Myth – Coming Back to Your Body Ft. Natalie Serianni

Brooke Warner

Natalie Serianni joins The Body Myth for a conversation about being a college athlete and losing herself in perfectionism and performance, society’s messages about our size, the effect dissociating from her body had on her well-being, and how she’s learned to integrate the physical, mental, and emotional and find joy in her body again.


Natalie Serianni is a Seattle-based writer, professor, and mother of two with work at Motherwell, the Manifest-Station, Ruminate Magazine, ParentMap, SheKnows, and Literary Mama. She has an essay included in the recent anthology, “The Pandemic Midlife Crisis: GenX Women on the Brink.” Her work centers on grief and motherless motherhood.
