Eat the Rules with Summer Innanen

I’m joined by Jessie Diaz-Herrera, the body-positive dance instructor otherwise known as Curves with Moves. We are talking about what her experiences were like growing up as a dancer, how she was able to use dance to embrace her body, the “science” behind jiggling our bodies, and her advice to others who struggle with their belly.
