Holistic Nutrition & Intuitive Eating

Our inner landscape and the world around us is constantly evolving. A diet is fixed and doesn’t consider or allow for the constant of change. Self-understanding through inner dialogue and mindful awareness empowers choice and supports a lifelong journey of conscious consumption and optimal nourishment for body and mind.

​When our nervous system is stressed, our immunity and digestion are sidelined. Mindful awareness and eating with ease may support our immune function, optimal digestion and managing emotions and cravings. Mindfulness meditation brings the unconscious to the conscious, creating an opportunity to explore habit patterns and potential to strengthen new patterns.  


Yoga private sessions are informed by Katonah Yoga theory and offer a chance to tune your instrument. (
