Hey, I’m Elisangela!
I’m a Certified Holistic Nutritionist (CNP), Certified 500-RYT Yoga Instructor and Reiki Master from Los Gatos, California - with a burning love for all things nutritious, delicious and endorphin-inducing! As a curious soul for all forms of natural healing modalities. I’ve been a health nut for as long as I can remember.
My journey into the world of Yoga began back in 2005 when I was going through a lot of emotional trauma on top of my childhood ones. I was feeling lost in many areas of my life. Since I started Yoga, I have learned to use my practice to heal my physical body, calm my emotional mind, and bring balance into my life. Yoga was the bridge that I needed to connect my mind, body and to become aware of the spirit and became whole again.
My journey into the world of Healthy Eating began when I moved to the United States in 2006. I was shocked to see the health problems and obesity rates, which I had heard of, but seeing it was really sad. It was then that I made the connection between nutrition and health; I knew right then I had found my calling! I had to help others with health problems.
My grandmother and father had diabetes and suffered all the complications from it. All of that suffering could have been avoided with the right health education! That's why, I have decided to dedicate myself to help others with their health issues.
I, myself have had my share with a broken relationship with food as well. I had been skinny all my life and after changing my eating habits I was able to gain weight healthily. Today, I appreciate food for the energizing fuel and nourishment it provides.
My journey into the world of Reiki Energy Healing began in 2018 after reading a book that mentioned Reiki. I got curious. I wanted to provide extra emotional support to my clients, so I got all the Reiki attunements to Master level. Since then, I, myself, and my clients have experienced the benefits of stress relief, relaxation, better sleep, and concentration.
Today, with my new found passions for health and well-being – I combine Yoga, Healthy Eating and Reiki to help my clients to see the connection between nutrition and health as well, along with a proper exercise routine and stress management to find their balance again.
For over 10 years, I have studied many different healing modalities including Holistic Nutrition, Natural Health & Healing, Yoga, Yoga Therapy & Mindfulness, Breathwork, Crystal Healing and, Reiki energy healing.
I feel extremely lucky to have found my true calling in teaching and coaching. Seeing my clients and family living healthier and happier lives is really satisfying.
