TRAINING I received my training as an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Coach with Dr. David Frawley. I also took the Institute for Integrative Nutrition's cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program. My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in Ayurveda, holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
TESTIMONIALS "I am grateful for Anthea’s role as my nutrition coach! She has a strong sense of purpose and calling to do this work. Her knowledge, wisdom, kindness and stabilizing “earth” force, brings harmony and cohesion to practice. Anthea is such a pleasure and encouragement to me! I greatly respect Anthea’s abilities. Her ability to assist in creating concrete and reachable goals brings clarity. With her support, I have accepted and met challenges in nutrition, and made life style changes, including committing to an exercise program. Happily, habits are changed, new skills applied, new recipes explored, my kitchen is organized, and knowledge is gained. Anthea designed a glucose balancing diet for my wellness needs. This includes, but is not limited to, multiple food intolerances and reduced refined sugar. Another dietary topic was “heal the gut”. Instead of more discipline and restriction, I discovered how many wonderful foods and seasonal recipes I could prepare, eat, enjoy. My variety of food was increased by preparation and good nutrition. The food diary, which I kept religiously, was invaluable as a discovery tool for both of us. We knew what worked and didn’t. While reinforcing the basics without pressure, Anthea’s guidance was received at the appropriate time and pace needed. I believe, permanent outcomes are my measure of achievement and success. Anthea is also a compassionate friend. She often acts as a stimulus to ignite a positive energy. She is a good listener and learner, practicing what she preaches. Thanks Anthea for everything!" ~ Deb K., USA
"Originally I hoped to get a few tips on how to optimize my diet when I consulted with Anthea for the first time. Instead I experienced a holistic approach that had a deep impact on me and how I live today. She took her time and asked a series of questions to thoroughly understand where I was at in life and then guided me to a place in life where I didn't even know I should be. I don´t know if I would have found my place without your help, thank you!" ~ Sven, Germany
"Anthea has a contagious passion for nutrition and yoga and her energy on our Skype calls really helped keep me going towards my goals when the going got a little rough. If I was ever feeling a bit unsure or low in motivation, she always had a great and unique take on it that helped me see things from another angle and put things in perspective, she is a very grounding influence. I always found that no matter how I was going in, after the call I was pumped and ready to re-double my efforts towards my goals, she made me realise it was possible, perhaps this was one of the biggest blockers for me, the fundamental belief that it may not be possible for me. Anthea refused to entertain this and it made all the difference.
Anthea provides accountability without ever being critical, always supportive and positive....I no longer feel affected by others judgement of my lifestyle, I’ve learned that the most important thing is to be authentic in behaving in a way that makes me happy. The most significant overall change I have noticed has been I feel in control of and excited about my life, I'm starting to believe that things I had given up on are actually possible...The biggest physical change I’ve noticed is that I am no longer yo-yo’ing in weight.
Anthea is someone who has clearly found her true calling as a Yoga teacher and Health coach. She’s a fully authentic person, there’s no BS, everything she proposes is backed up with knowledge, common sense and experience...Just being in Anthea’s presence for a short time is enough to see that she authentically lives and practices what she teaches every day and that’s what inspired me the most.
Anthea is what I call an enabler, she see’s possibility in people and she genuinely wants to enable that possibility. She cares for other people and truly wants to help them achieve what she knows is possible based on her own experience. She is also honest, kind, friendly and down to earth and is a massive source of information on diet and yoga. She goes out of her way to help others. I would recommend Anthea to absolutely anyone who is looking in any way to improve their physical, emotional or/and spiritual health especially through diet and yoga. As someone who places huge importance on health, it’s no exaggeration to say that this has been the single best investment in my health I’ve made in a very long time, if not ever! Thanks Anthea for your encouragement, inspiration, advice and friendship over the 6 months, couldn’t have done it without you!!" ~Vernon, France
