I believe that our relationships with food and movement don't have to be complicated or overwhelming—I help people comb through the noise, understand the basic science, and learn to trust their bodies to guide them in a healthier, happier, more compassionate and mindful relationship with eating, exercising, and life.

— Autumn Rauchwerk, MS, RDN, E-RYT


Autumn has a diverse array of experiences in the food and wellness world. She spent three years working in food justice and sustainability for the Food Recovery Network and Bon Appetit Management Company before shifting to nutrition and yoga.

Autumn started her own nutrition and yoga private practice, where she explored a diverse array of opportunities—from hosting nutrition workshops for students and employees to working with clients one-on-one on nutrition behavior change to teaching private and group yoga classes.

Over the past few years, she's honed in on writing, dipping her toes in academic writing and editing, creating original content and editing for newsletters, blog posts, and websites, and authoring her own wellness and self-love-focused newsletter throughout the pandemic. She is the co-founder of mendinground nutrition and yoga, a private practice focused on helping people reconnect with their internal cues and heal their relationships with food and their bodies.

She currently serves as the senior commerce editor for nutrition and supplement content for Dotdash Meredith's health group, managing a team of editors and freelance writers to provide readers with up-to-date, research-backed, wellbeing-focused guidance on nutrition and supplements.


Autumn graduated from American University with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and went on to receive her M.S. in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology from Teachers College, Columbia University. She completed her dietetic internship and clinical training through Teachers College, where she worked with a variety of private practices focused on gastrointestinal health, intuitive eating, and eating disorders, as well as with an eating disorder treatment center. In 2021, Autumn completed her training to become a certified intuitive eating counselor through Intuitive Eating Pros.

Autumn completed her 200 Hour yoga teacher training in January 2017 with Jaya Yoga in Brooklyn, NY where she also completed her Reiki Level 1 training and took part in a reiki collective. She has additional yoga training in anatomy through Jason Crandall and yin yoga through Corina Benner and has taught enough hours to qualify her to serve as a teacher of yoga teachers.
