My integrated health coaching fuses yoga practice, theory and philosophy with integrated and holistic health and nutrition coaching.
I believe health isn’t just about going to the gym every day or eating cardboard. Health is loving life, feeling vibrant & energetic, and being prepared to handle life’s everyday stresses. Yoga and nutrition are critical components, but holistic health also takes into account the affects relationships, career and spirituality have on a person’s ability to eat healthy and be active.
I practice a holistic approach to nutrition, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we look at how all parts of your life affect the whole.
THERE IS NO ‘ONE’ WAY
The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has their own nutritional needs. So, when the experts say, “dairy is good for you” or “fat is unhealthy,” it’s too much of a generalization. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets don’t work in the long run. I look at your age, health, activity level, blood type, metabolic rate and personal preferences to determine your dietary needs.
EVERYTHING IS FOOD
Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual practice are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary.
