Marcy Balter’s interest in health and wellness was awakened through her work as a speech pathologist with special-needs children. Discovering a connection between diet, behavior, and sociability problems led Marcy to help create the Student Nutrition Awareness Council in her home community of Weston, Massachusetts.

A former Kripalu Board member, Marcy trained at Kripalu as a holistic health educator and 500-hour yoga teacher. A dedicated student of adjunctive medicine, she is a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City, and teaches and counsels in her home studio. She and her husband, Bruce, are active in charity work in the Boston area, including at Temple Beth Elohim in Wellesley. They were founders of the Wellness Community of Greater Boston, a day facility that offered free psycho-social support services to cancer patients and their families. Marcy is a proud wife, mother, and grandmother.
