Hello! I’m Vicki
Ayurveda Wellness Coach & Yoga Instructor
I have been passionate about healthy eating most of my life. Gosh, I was the kid who would much rather have cheese from the Easter Bunny then candy. For many years, I followed a low-fat way of life. That all changed in December 2011 when I injured my back working out with weights at the gym. The first thing I did was to go see a chiropractor. The adjustments did not help at all. My chiropractor suggested I get and MRI to see what was really going on.I found out I had a 9mm herniated disk at L5/S1. I was told I needed surgery immediately.Needless to say, I wanted to avoid surgery and relieve my severe pain naturally. At the time, I was popping Advil like candy. I lost weight and hair. I looked like I was 130. While waiting to see a neurosurgeon, I laid flat on my back in pain googling natural remedies. While doing so, I learned more and more about eating good fat, real food and how bad sugar was for us. I finally got into to see Dr. Kakarla at the Barrow Neurological Institute. Dr. Kakarla told me I did not want to have surgery unless I absolutely needed it. He sent me to PT and pain management. I then decided to go back to taking yoga classes. Best decision I ever made. I am happy to say I avoided surgery. I became passionate about living a healthy holist lifestyle and yoga so much so that I decided to become an Ayurveda Wellness Coach and Yoga Instructor. It changed my world. I learned how to eat for my body type known as Dosha. It mkes a huge difference when you learn what food and lifestyle activities work best for you. It is a way of life. It is not what about you can’t eat and do, it is about what you CAN eat and do. It is all about balance.

My Approach & Values
I begin with a 30 minute Discovery Call in order for me to get to know you and for you to get to know me. We will discuss what you are looking for and if it looks like this may be a good fit for you. If so, I will invite you to take the Body Type quiz and we will go from there.
I start with an Holistic approach. I will offer ideas for herbal supplements if I think they may help. Do know, you will not be committed to taking anything for a long period of time. Supplements are only meant to help get you on the right track. I am not a doctor of any kind. I do not diagnose or write prescriptions. I will recommend you see a physician if I feel that anything is beyond my scope of work.
