hey there!

I'm shaira.

I am a holistic health coach, who loves dancing and movement.  I am obsessed with eating delicious whole foods that nourish our bodies and keeps the weight off. 


Get ready to hear my story.

It was my daughter's 13th birthday party.  We had organised a 'photo-shoot' birthday with all her friends dressing up and taking photo shoots with a professional photographer.  When the photos came back, I was shocked to see how chubby I was!!!  I know, I know... you always look a bit bigger in certain angles or pictures but clearly I had bigger cheeks in several of the prints.  Honestly I was appalled! I decided at that point I wanted to lose weight as I was also nearing 40 and didn't want to go downhill from there because I had heard that your metabolism slows down and it is harder to lose weight as you hit the 40's.  On the other hand the very word “DIET” when mentioned makes me rebellious, reminds me of failure. It is not a word I liked as I have often cheated on a diet and resumed to my normal way of eating more than once.  To me DIET meant 'Deprivation'. I had to find a way of eating AND losing weight.

So what did I do? I took a bet on myself, and I went all in.

I started by removing most processed food, became aware of the timings I was eating and simply being mindful of how my body was feeling at every meal. Slowly but surely I started shedding the weight off naturally. It took around 2 months to see the changes and the inches melted away. I thought to myself “why didn’t I do this before, it was rather easy!!” 

It is at this point that I realised that I wasn't taking panadols/paracetamol as often as I used to (I suffered from headaches quite frequently] before and as I improved my nutrition the headaches also diminished. Not only that, I was feeling so much more energetic and my digestion had improved. I got very intrigued by all the changes that were happening to me for the better and wanted to learn more about food and nutrition and its effect.  

I decided to enrol in a nutrition school as the changes in me were simply overwhelmingly good. I became a Certified Holistic Health Coach. Initially, I was only interested to learn about nutrition for my family but as we practiced the principles together, we started to feel and look really good, the weight was naturally shedding, and we became conscious of food and its effect on health. We were able to reduce inflammation and so I wanted to then help others do the same and hence that put me to where I am today.

I am committed to help and support others to take their health in their own hands through an integrative approach to wellness focusing on nutrition, emotional balance and stress management to achieve an optimal state of well-being

My idea of weight loss is eating nourishing foods and losing weight at the same time –  better sleep, digestion and bouncing with energy.
