Ayurvedic Integrative Nutrition

I have finished the Fundamentals Course of Ayurvedic Nutrition and Culinary Program with Divya Alter at Bhavagat Life and now currently studying at their Professional Ayurvedic Chef Training. I am also studying to be an Ayurvedic Health Counsellor at Yoga Veda Institute.
As I reach my 50s, and experienced perimenopause symptoms in my early 40s, I became curios about natural methods to manage menopause. I am a certified Menopause Yoga teacher with Petra Coveney, and learned how to balance our hormonal system and help the menopause symptoms with the help of yoga, meditation and other supporting natural methods.
I then studied with Dr.Wendy Sweet, a world leader in Women’s Health and graduated from her MyMT™ Menopause Practitioner Course, to ensure that I can coach with the best advise to make your transition through menopause as healthy and happy as possible.
Currently I am coaching women one-to-one, online or in person and you can find all details on my Menopause Coaching Page.

Life Before Coaching!
Prior to my coaching life, I worked in the marketing departments of international companies in the food and beverages industry for more than 15 years and did many new product launches and campaigns. I was a busy working mom, trying to manage my time among my family, house, work, sports, friends…you probably know the story!
I changed so many habits that I would never think that I could! I was drinking almost a liter of Diet Coke, 3-4 cups of coffee, plus some black tea. I loved eating cheese and breads/crackers in the afternoon and always snacked in between meals with my “diet crackers”! Tried so many diets and usually disappointed with the results. I had a sedentary lifestyle, had no or just a little time to exercise. I did my best for a healthier living yet struggled to keep it consistent.
Currently, I am in my early 50s, I went through some hormonal changes due to menopause knockings on my door! I went through challenges like sleep, stress, weight gain, foggy brain and concentration, lack of motivation for life.
Through my coaching and yoga training, I finally enjoy a healthier lifestyle, consistent and pleasurable for myself and my family.
By working together we will discover the food and lifestyle choices that best support you, and your family. Getting this kind of support to transition to a healthy lifestyle is the best commitment you will ever make (trust me I know, because I have done it!).
