WHOLE FOOD NUTRITION
YOGA & MEDITATION
Elaine’s interest and love for whole food nutrition began over 22 years ago when her own health was compromised due to a busy, hectic lifestyle and career in the mortgage business. Through exploration and experimentation, I found ways to regain her own health and wellness and discovered the importance of nourishing both her own body and her won heart.
As Elaine continued her healing journey, She began teaching classes and workshops at preschools, libraries, health care professionals’ offices, senior centers, corporate businesses, and wherever she could in order to educate and inspire others to make healthier choices in their lives for both themselves and their families. This soon led to healthy cooking and food choice classes for adults and programs to teach children of all ages how to make healthier choices.
Elaine brings a wealth of knowledge and wisdom as she leads the whole foods for health and wellness workshops and classes.

YOGIC & MINDFULNESS MEDITATION
David believes there has always been a “Divine Hand” in his life. He truly believes that Life, or Infinite Spirit or God has looked out for him. He has no doubt that there was a definite plan for his life. David’s gifts and talent did not ‘pop up’ overnight. For the past thirty years, David have been transforming his thinking, celebrating little daily victories, co-creating a loving family life. Plus he has been learning how to give into the world community with faith and joy.
David’s ‘challenging’ years gave him compassion, vision, clarity, humbleness and an ever growing appreciation for the Higher Power that is within all of life and it is always desiring the best for all.
David is very passionate about offering Mindfulness Mediation to individuals, companies, schools and corporations.
