Simple Yet Transformational Lessons From My Wise Clients

Since my husband and I started our 9 months travel adventure, one of the things I miss the most are my daily Skype sessions with the most amazing women from allover the world. Supporting women always felt very rewarding to me but I never realized how much I really loved the 1-1 work until I took a break.


My Step by Step Morning Routine (Refined and Validated Over 18 years)

Many of you have asked me how I am staying in shape, keeping my digestion regular and overall maintaining balance while traveling for 9 months.

Chocolate: The Bitter Truth

With warm weather upon us my chocolate cravings have been long gone. I always felt that the warming treat has its place in colder months but that it was completely out of place for my Pitta nature in the summer. Also the more present I become in my body, the more sensitive I am to the stimulating nature of chocolate ( I am talking about the really dark varieties without processed sugar. In milk chocolate with lots of processed ingredients, the stimulating effect can come mostly from sugar, not the cacao itself. The quality of that stimulation will be very different).


Sample Daily Lifestyle Analysis And What It Means For Different Mind/Body Types

Over the past year I have been diving deeper in studying ayurveda and doing a mentorship program in Clinical Nutrition with Liz Lipski. Both programs have been so extensive and time-consuming that I haven’t really shared much of what I have been learning with you. Lots of things learned and lots more to learn.
