OUR APPROACH TO NUTRITION & FITNESS 

A “Holistic Approach” –  considers the whole person and how the body and mind interact . Programs, practises and classes are based on the belief\philosophy that everyone had unique nutritional and physical needs including:

  1. Live – contains live enzymes (ie. fresh fruit, vegetables and sprouts

  2. Natural – unprocessed, unrefined foods (ie, whole grains, and legumes)

  3. Good Quality – grown in soil rich in essential nutrients such as organically grown.

  4. Free of pesticides & grown without synthetic fertilizers)

  5. Mindful Movement - moving in full awareness and focus on your body and mind

  6. Intuitive Movement - Moving in a way that feels good to you. Tuning in and listening to exactly what your body and mind are craving

 

The result of a holistic approach is to empower clients with the knowledge, understanding and tools they need to fuel, support, and move their bodies, in order to obtain optimal health and sustainable balance in life

A Extensive Lifestyle Assessment Form is completed which collects and  evaluates one's  health history, emotional state, lifestyle, habits current diet habits, level of stress, hereditary diseases and much more.

 

A Nutrisystem profile is also completed. One scores 67 symptoms as a 1, 2, or 3.  Using these scores we are able to focus on which of the body systems is unbalanced.
