Authentic Health

I’m Mikayla, nutritionist and personal trainer on a mission to help people find healing and freedom in their relationships with food and body. I passionately believe that we were all made for more than being preoccupied with what we eat and what our bodies look like, but that we live in a world that can make us feel stuck in patterns of thinking which can hold us back from truly thriving here.

Sustainable Living

I ‘met’ Francesca through the world of Instagram, coming upon her gorgeous art work that both captured me and challenged me in my journey with sustainable and conscious living. It’s clear Francesca has a heart for justice, people and this beautiful world. It shines through all that she does.

Winter Wellness

These darker months bring with it a distinctive mood, fading light at sunset and quietness in the streets. This time is often the hardest for us all, we long for sun on our skin and to rise with the light and the singing birds, and yet, this time can be soulful and warm, it can be ritualistic and gentle and has it’s own joy to be found.
