Hi! I’m Izzy, a naturopathic health coach, whole-foods loving yogi, and registered nutritional therapist
For as long as I can remember I have wanted to help people 'get healthy' - I cooked and shared recipes and natural self-care tips with my friends and family from a young age. As a health coach I offer this through an integrated approach including whole plant foods and mindful movement, but mainly through a positive mindset and empowering my clients to achieve their health goals and commit to them.
My interest in natural health began 25 years ago around the time I took my first yoga class. The link between body and mind became more apparent as I practiced and discovered more about yoga philosophy. I loved practicing and experimenting with different styles and yoga became more than a physical practice - I turned to yoga for mental health support, and practiced throughout my pregnancies. After many years of personal practice I completed my 200hr teacher training in vinyasa flow / anusara alignment with Yoga Alliance, and I’ve since gone on to train and qualify in trapeze, gravity, and children's yoga.
I get a huge amount of inspiration from nature. I love the outdoors, big walks in the country, travelling and exploring new places with my family. I feel very connected to the seasons and like to weave this in to my food and themes for my yoga classes. For me there is no better way to gain that perspective on life and our place in the universe than by gazing out on an amazing landscape or by watching an angry storm over a turbulent sea.
But most importantly, I am a mum to four lovely energetic boys. You could say my health coaching journey started as a parent, and from tiny encouraging the children into the kitchen to help me prepare meals, nurturing their love for nature, food and yoga, counselling them on conflict with friends, encouraging and cheering them on from the sidelines, and instilling a love and understanding for self-care - all valuable tools for long term happiness and emotional wellness.
Now I offer health coaching through Zoom - and soon at a local clinic! I also teach yoga and yoga trapeze and in addition offer nutritional therapy to those wishing to address any symptoms pertaining to their diet.
