There is a sweeping change occurring in our world food system and it is inextricably linked with our changes in “modern” lifestyle and how we choose to live and eat. These changes and their effects are spreading across the world from America to Europe, Asia and beyond.

Many parents today are unfortunately too busy with work commitments to cook homemade food and pass on their traditions to their families. In schools, less times is spent on health education and more on focused examination practice. Conversely, science is at last now starting to prove that health and the ability to learn is heavily connected with the amount of exercise and healthy food that a child consumes.

Working with schools, it is my mission to inspire healthy eating, environmental awareness and fitness as a way of life for every student. To teach them healthy, sustainable habits that will last a lifetime. This is united around the very conviction that healthier bodies make healthier minds and that, conversely, unhealthy school environments interfere with student health, school attendance and academic achievement. My goal is simple: I want our children to have the “healthiest” possible environment in which to learn and grow.

Health & Wellness Workshops for Your Students

As a certified Health Coach, I can facilitate various Health and Wellness related workshops for your students at regular times throughout the year. These workshops include education on how to implement better nutrition and life choices to create a healthier life, produce a more efficient day, reduce stress in the school environment and much, much, more. They serve as a great first step in allowing your students to maximize their health, and therefore experience many of the benefits described above.

The workshops are a fun and informative forum for the discussion of healthy living. I utilize an interactive approach to facilitate active learning and individual empowerment. This approach allows participants to engage in discussion and interact with other attendees through various exercises and brainstorming. Participants also receive valuable giveaways to take with them, furthering their knowledge after the workshops.

The workshops are from one to two hours in length (depending on language and translation) and may be presented at multiple times to allow for the varying schedules of your students. A small group format of 25 to 30 participants is recommended per workshop session.
