I am a certified holistic health coach with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition from New York and I hold a MSc in personal development and leadership by the Borja Vilaseca Institute, in Barcelona. But in addition to integrative nutrition and holistic health, personal development, leadership, coaching and wellness, I am an environmentalist with an international career and a wide transdisciplinar background including the environment, sustainability and human development fields. When I am neither coaching nor blogging, I am working as a researcher at the science-policy-practice interface on environment and development issues (mostly related to social vulnerability, sustainability and adapting to climate change) in developing countries mainly, which is my other passion.

 I support women to re-connect with their own soul so they can get their personal power back and really experience freedom once and for all! I help them create and live a VIBRANT life: charged with positivity and purpose, on their own terms!

I want you to feel REAL. WHOLEHEARTED AND POWERFUL.

I help you RE-IGNITE YOUR INNER BEAUTY!

I work with women who don’t feel good in their own bodies, or have had enough from yo-yo dieting and want to improve their relationship with themselves, with food and how they engage with the world by fostering habit formation and behaviour changes. They want to gain SELF-CONFIDENCE and LEADERSHIP in their own lives and live a VIBRANT life and adopting holistic self-care habits, shifting their mindset and overcoming mental blocks and self-limiting beliefs.

Connecting with self-love and self-worth, compassion, kindness and authenticity are really the superpowers for a vibrant life!

In my blog and through my programmes, you will find inspirational and motivational resources on how you can live better and re-connect with yourself so you can be unapologetically YOU to live a VIBRANT LIFE!

Ranging from holistic self-care practices that nourish mind, body and soul to mental health and mindset tools, creativity, lifestyle inspo and travel experiences, to name a few. Overall, I want you to feel more nourished and balanced so you are more satisfied, joyful and contented with yourself to create and live the LIFE OF YOUR DREAMS – A VIBRANT LIFE Mambo Vida style!

12 things about me

1. I am a free-spirited, gypsy soul. FREEDOM & FLEXIBILITY are my MANTRAS!

2. I am a CONSTANT LEARNER, of a very curious nature and passionate about understanding the complexity of human nature and human behavior.

3. I find BEAUTY in IMPERFECTION and in DIVERSITY! Even though I’m a PERFECTIONIST with myself  – a ‘work in progress’.

4. A true WANDERER, NOMAD and INQUISITIVE by nature – I love EXPLORING and INVESTIGATING the world and stuff… Being surrounded by people from different socio-cultural contexts and from all walks of life is really my thing! I enjoy myself most when I’m exposed to international contexts and different languages and cultures! I have to admit that I have a special thing for Africa and Southern cultures, generally! EXOTIC stuff is a MUST in my LIFE!

5. I LOVE DIVERSITY and enjoy exploring the world and the different worldviews as well as ways of living.

6. I can’t live without ART, COLOR and CREATIVITY.

7. A GOOD sense of humor, good FOOD, MUSIC & DANCING are A MUST! GOOD VIBES ONLY!

8. I need my dose of VITAMIN SEA – the sea or the ocean, sandy beaches, seashells, sunshine, sunrises and sunsets! – Water is VIDA to me and  NATURE gives me the balance and connection I need!

9. VITAMIN LOVE keeps my internal engine on fire and all my senses alive! I am here for a HEART REVOLUTION!

10. I love cosyness, warmth, all things ‘Hygge’ (how the danes like to call it) or ‘Lykke’ (how the swedes like to call it).

11. I have an inherent sense and intuition for connecting people, things, topics, resources… everything! I can’t help it! I guess I was born to be a TRANSDISCIPLINAR CONNECTOR..!? I simply can’t conceive the world in ‘silos’! I find interconnectedness in (almost) everything.

12. A BIG DREAMER, in capital letters,  a VISIONARY of LIFE, a seeker of THE TRUTH. Dream big, play big is my mantra.

My professional ethos and guiding values in Mambo Vida include:

  • Integrity
  • Love and warmth
  • Freedom
  • Flexibility
  • Diversity
  • Learning/growth
  • Creativity / fun /adventure
  • High Vibrancy: more vitality, energy & nourishment 
  • Passion and purpose
  • Joy and contentment
  • Inner harmony & balance
  • Imperfect consistent actions

My 10 guiding working principles:

Bio-individuality: No one diet or lifestyle works for everyone. People have differing needs and will have a way of eating and living that works best for them.

Mindful and intuitive living: more self-observation, self-exploration and more presence with yourself.

Emphasis on primary food refer to lifestyle factors such as career, relationships, spirituality, physical activity, etc. Primary food plays an equal or greater role in your health and wellbeing than what’s on your plate.

Holistic self-care with emphasis on mental health/spirituality by listening and honouring your deep needs and creating habits and practices that satisfy these needs.

Love, kindness, and self-compassion are superpowers for personal work and to deal with body image issues and your self-talk.

Fitting out and embracing diversity: celebrating what makes you unique rather than trying to fit in.

 

Flexibility is key in this journey.

Experience freedom.

Nourishment extends far beyond food and exercise.

Heal by yourself.

I am eager to help women live a life full of vibrancy, passion and purpose and re-define their own version of success! Because you can feel VIBRANT regardless of your size, your shape, or your appearance. Re-igniting your inner beauty will make you shine through and re-connect with who you really are, what you really need and what you really want!

With a little bit of love, kindness and patience we can all learn to nourish ourselves gently and intuitively!  And maybe the whole point is just about unlearning everything we’ve learned thus far so that we can be the maximum expression of our soul.
