Yoga is opening your heart to the present. It’s when you fully open yourself to the present moment, to all there is, that you are able to deeply experience and savour the magnificence of life.
Yoga is much more than the practice on the mat. It’s how you live your life. It’s how you nourish yourself from the inside out which enables you to live your life to the fullest. The way you think, eat, breathe, the space you allow yourself and even the company you keep affect all aspects of who you are. As a health coach I promote ways to take optimal care of yourself. I encourage you to cleanse your mind and body. I am passionate about food, healthy wholesome foods made with seasonal, local and organic resources, but I also understand that what you need is unique to you. No system or approach works for everyone so we need to find out what works best for you and you only. I also focus on achieving optimal health through physical exercise and through the practice of forms of stress-relief like meditation, breath work, yoga nidra and mindfulness. I support my clients in healing and transforming their relationship to food and to themselves.
