Real Food Advocate
I’ve always had a strong pull towards wellbeing and all things natural. In 2000 I discovered Yoga and Ayurveda, which set me on a path that proved to be one of the most rewarding and transformational experiences to date.
Nutrition is critically important in the Ayurveda & Yoga tradition, so it felt only natural to expand my knowledge and study Naturopathic Nutrition. During my studies of the abovementioned I discovered a whole new world and came to understand the vast interconnectedness of the human body and mind.
To enjoy good health, one must take care of the whole, not just its isolated parts. Vibrant You Ltd. was born out of passion for human health and deep respect for the innate intelligence of our minds & bodies.
My philosophy is simple, I believe that we should eat foods as close to their natural state as possible and listen to our body as it is a vital messenger in the health equation. Our environment, social networks, daily ‘rituals’, sleep patterns and state of mind are all intimately connected to our wellbeing and an imbalance in one affects the rest.
