Welcome! I’m Jess. A Chinese Peruvian gal living in Toronto, Canada. Your wellness coach and Strala yoga guide.
I created this site to share some of my favourite things: Healthy finger licking recipes, fun yoga sequences to get you into the groove plus some effective tools to help you connect the dots. Self-care doesn’t have to be complicated, I’m here to make it more easy peasy for ya!
You know how it goes. You don’t really think about your health until you’re sick.
Just like you don’t think about fulfillment until you’re not.
It all started with a sleepless night, and then another one, and another one...
sleep was a dream away ;)
Not being able to sleep puts things in perspective - or maybe I was too loopy from the lack of? Anyways, I was not in alignment.
Aside from insomnia, my immune system consisted of more snakes than ladders. I was sick 24/7 and becoming a real life Eeyore. I didn’t like this version of myself. Snappy, unmotivated and helpless. Everyone around me showed the same symptoms — surviving instead of thriving — how did this become the OK?
I want to make a difference for the greater good. I was spending 60+ hr a week in a corporate job that drained the life out of me and wasn't helping anyone. I was making good money but was miserable. It was time to get my soul back.
My intentions were not aligned to my actions. The job I was good at wasn’t good for me.
So I decided to do something about it. My happiness is in my own hands, just like yours is.
Fast forward to today, I’m a holistic wellness coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and a 500 HR certified Strala yoga guide. I quit my soul sucking job — we weren’t the right fit anyways — I am finally free and happier than a clam.
It’s now my mission to guide you back to yourself and help you find clarity in creating a life where you too can thrive.
The Institute for Integrative Nutrition taught me innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw and more. So we can work together in figuring out what works best for you and your goals.
