Yudy doesn’t just talk the talk, she walks the walk. She has re-written her own personal story. After suffering for many years with anxiety, depression, an eating disorder and a sense of not feeling worthy, she suffered a heart attack caused by irresponsible lifestyle choices, medications, and high levels of stress that almost took her life --- at 36 years of age. One night, she woke at 3am, looked up at her ceiling feeling defeated, trapped and lost… a silent cry of anguish invaded her whole being and she asked … Is this how I am supposed to live? Is this how we are supposed to live and feel? Did she get an answer? Oh hell yeah! …. Loud and clear! The answer was an EMPHATIC AND SWEEPING “NO”... This is not how you are supposed to live! That night she embarked upon a journey of awakening and self-discovery to find out how we are supposed to live and feel…And from that day on she changed her life radically! During her healing journey, she has discovered the secret to stop living on autopilot and create a life worth living; mindful, happy and free. Creating stronger, long-lasting, heart-centered relationships based on love, compassion, commitment and trust starting with loving yourself first.
Tamra Healey, Health Coach
Tamra Healey graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where she learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between. Tamra’s education has equipped her with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention. Tamra takes a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that she looks at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your family cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? She looks at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole. Her approach is not to dwell on calories and scales. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, to work with her clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.
