Hi! I'm Michaela
I'm a Mom, Health Coach, Content Creator and Podcast Host of the Healthy Style Podcast (yep, I wear a lot of hats!)
I work with people who feel overwhelmed and who don’t know where to start when it comes to getting their life and health on track. I support them to live healthy and feel whole via some of my favorite tools – planning, having solid routines and creating a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits their unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals – all in a practical and pragmatic way.
I have been on a long journey to find the healthiest, happiest and balanced self. I'm still on the journey but I have come along way.
After doing my first yoga class in my early twenties, I have have experienced first hand the profound mind-body connection and was hooked and got certified to teach yoga at 24. I healed myself from negative eating patterns, anxiety and depression through natural methods. All of this self work led me to become a Health Coach in 2015 through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and starting my coaching practice.
I am passionate about simplifying health and yoga practices and making it accessible, fun and simple for today’s modern mind and lifestyle.
As your coach I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness. It simply means we will look at how all areas of your life are connected, because health extends far beyond the foods that fill our plate. Does stress at work or at home cause you to overeat? Maybe you don't get enough sleep, so you don't have the energy to work out. Together we will look how all these areas work together, and how we can create more harmony. As a health coach, we will not only look into your eating and exercise habits, we will also look into your self-talk, mindset, self-image, relationships, home, and work. All these areas impact your health!!
I received my nutrition and coaching training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods with some of the worlds leading experts in the health industry. With my knowledge, we co-create completely personalized action plan based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, and resources.
I was born and raised in Slovakia.
I competed in Ballroom and Latin dance since 6. Then...
My family moved to the US when I was 11. I didn't know 1 word in English!!
Mostly plant based, but I don't label my eating habits - you don't have to either!
I follow the 80/20 rule. 80% healthy 20% indulgent.
I also became Alcohol-Free in summer of 2018.
