About Me

Hey there beautiful soul seekers. 

Welcome to the community of happy, healthy living where together we explore a lifestyle full of all things natural, nourishing food, lots of yoga, mindfulness and gratitude. 

I'm Alexandria, here to guide you through this empowering journey to allow you to be the best version of you. Let’s explore all that life has to offer while practicing each day with awareness and intention. Learning to dig deep to develop our spirituality and living our best life in harmony with all that Mother Nature has to offer.

I created this platform as a sacred space to solely share my knowledge with the world. I want to inspire each and every one of you and offer a simple and accessible way for everyone to begin their own holistic lifestyle.

Here’s a little about me + how my journey began.

I grew in a small town in the US with your typical American lifestyle; family, friends, college, work, stressing about work and student loans, repeat. I was always more of a home body, could spend hours on end cozied up with a book and had wanted to go to Medical School. After college, I went on a little hiatus and decided this monotonous life wasn’t for me. Being the impulsive woman I am, at 23 I bought a one way ticket to India to get my yoga teacher certification. Flying solo, I headed to the land of spirituality unsure of what I was really seeking and when I would return. Having a degree in Biology, I have always liked to look at things realistically and with much needed support and evidence. I’ve always had an interest in health and wellness as I’d trained for marathons and began my yoga journey. It wasn’t until I started solo traveling in the East and found myself battling PCOS that I’d started questioning Western medicine. I can attest all of my inspiration, knowledge and passion to my travels and personal experiences I had within these cultures. I have spent a lot of my time in India and Southeast Asia learning the ancient philosophy of yoga, the healing power of meditation, pranayama, Reiki, sound therapy and crystals. I experienced first hand the practices of Naturopathy, Ayurvedic Medicine, Herbalism and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Throughout these experiences I began to form my own practices, my own beliefs, diving into my spirituality and discovering my true passion. I am so full of gratitude every single day for the things I have experienced. 

Three years have passed since I first left the States and although I am still unsure of what I am looking for…. I know it was the best decision I have ever made in my life. It has allowed me to find my true path in life and now, to share it with the rest of you.

I am so passionate about living this life harmoniously with what this planet has to offer. To me this means nourishing my body with plant based foods and healing superfoods, living life sustainably and creating the least amount of waste possible, using products that are completely natural and non toxic, and exposing myself to the beautiful power of spiritual practices and consciousness. 

Here you can begin to nourish your mind, body and soul. 

Let’s walk this path together.
