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.

To do anything, you must do everything - we will take an integrative approach and draw upon patterns in nature, such as seasons.

Meditation and Mindfulness Coaching

Mindfulness & Meditation coaching explores how to establish a regular practice and identifying and overcoming challenges to practice. Your experience will be further supported with recommended resources including applications, guided meditations, podcasts, discussion and books. 

Option to book a single session or a 5-session exploration; best for ongoing guidance and deepening your practice.

Through repetition there is potential for insight.

Choose Meditation & Mindfulness Coaching if you want to:

  • Awaken from automatic pilot

  • Improve your resilience to stress

  • Establish a home practice to change habit patterns that hold you back

  • Learn to hone your concentration, clarity and compassion


Yoga private sessions are informed by Katonah Yoga theory using metaphor such as your body is a house to inform your practice, move beyond the personal way you do things and set conditions for change. We will utilize body, breath and imagination. (
