Founded in 2005, we provide resources, education and adventures in the fields of nutrition, yoga and the subtle body.
Through Nutrition, Yoga and Adventures, nourish your physical, mental or subtle bodies, bringing forth the vitality of your being. Like Rumi said long ago, there are a hundred ways to kneel and kiss the ground. There are many paths to honour the life force; through nutrition counseling, yoga, adventuring, meditating, eating, broadening your horizons or simply the act of loving. These acts of love and devotion to ourselves as part of a global consciousness can take place in many different environments; classroom, boardroom, farm, table, mat, mediation cushion or at the beach on retreat. Join us where it feels right!
