If you work with clients with eating disorders, you know how hard it can be to find recovery-aligned exercise spaces. Here is a list of resources I have compiled for you to share as a resource for your clients.

A Canadian-based running collective for self-identified women seeking a safe space to connect with others and their own minds and bodies.
