Health comes from the balance of all areas of life, physical conditions, and emotional wellbeing. This principle drives my holistic approach in order to make personalized plans and implement them gradually. I provide education, practical guidelines, mindset support, and accountability - no quick fixes here, I keep it real!. I focus on making nutrition and healthy habits simple - even enjoyable - while learning about how the body works and what it needs. I'm also an advocate for education and simplification of the practical application, which I find especially important nowadays that the amount of information can be overwhelming. In my approach, it is important to understand the person's life context, guide them to become more in tune with their bodies, provide the knowledge and tools needed, and optimize areas of both physical and emotional wellbeing. And, I consider that developing self-awareness is a very important factor for transforming habits, so I give guidance to help question assumptions, beliefs, or other factors that may lead to certain habits, patterns, or limitations. In other words, we work together towards a healthier and happier lifestyle considering all factors required for that.
I am passionate about every topic related to health, how the body works and the life around me! As part of that curiosity, I love travelling, exploring nature and countries, learning and expanding my views, creating new recipes, walking in nature, roaming in markets, creating new projects, painting, and working with people!. I'm originally from Spain but have ever since i was a teenager lived abroad in many different countries, finally settled in Asia!

What is your favorite kind of workout?
Walking and cycling because i love to be outdoors!
What is your main focus?
My specialities are nutrition and mindset. My approach is focused on adjusting principles to each person's needs and circumstances while simplifying health. This means that we work as a team for a more balanced and sustainable lifestyle considering real-life factors like family, social circles, work schedule, preferences, previous conditions, and mindset/self-development. I guide to find the best method for each person, provide education for lasting changes, increase body awareness, and tune to listen to the body. I am an advocate of mindfulness and understanding health as a constant journey instead of looking for quick fixes.
How did you get interested in health?
My health journey started as a teenager due to an autoimmune condition which caused chronic fatigue and joint pain affecting all other areas of life. Health became the priority, and by adapting my whole lifestyle, symptoms have been relieved since then. For the last fifteen years, I have been fascinated by the body, nutrition, mindfulness, and life, while devoting myself to share this passion for guiding others in their journeys. I am certified as a Nutritionist and in Fitness Nutrition by ISSA (International Sports Science Association from US) and in Advanced Nutrition by Hong Kong University (HKUSpace). I have kept learning from both Western and Eastern practices in areas like child nutrition, Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, women hormonal balance, immune conditions, gut health, and compassion mindfulness practices. I'm an advocate of education and self-awareness and have self-publishing author of health guides..
What was one of the biggest health changes you’ve made?
The biggest health change was to accept an autoimmune condition as a teenager and adapt my lifestyle to it. This required a process of food elimination, finding triggers of flare-ups, understanding the body, and finding alternatives for balanced and sustainable diet & lifestyle. Learning from this challenge, I discovered how amazing the body and the mind are, and I have been dedicated to health ever since. Having grown up in Europe but lived abroad, mainly in the East, i try to combine lessons and wisdom from all the different parts of the world to put more balance both in my life and in my working practice.
What do you think most people should do differently to be more healthy?
More mindfulness and self-awareness. Simplify your life. Include more real & unprocessed foods. Go for food variety, more veggies and colours, enough water, and focus on quality. Prioritise sleep and move everyday. Take challenges in life as opportunities to learn. Question beliefs, ideas, expectations and assumptions that limit you more than help you to grow. And, open yourself to try some art!
