I am a healthy lifestyle muse, a holistic health coach, a wild woman healer, a sweet sister's doula, and a non-stop nurturing mama bear care-taker. As a highly attuned empath, passionate about being of service, I sense people's needs and obstacles. My practice is founded on natural living, LOVE is my religion, and health is my way. My spiritual name, Ninaya, means "Follow the path of my laughing heart."
Although my focus is multi-dimensional, I hold the power of Water to treat and cleanse as my special tool for healing. Using water therapies, healthy living, seasonal foods and plants as medicine. I share and model how to enjoy staying healthy and balanced with all the Elements.
Born in 1966 in southern Sweden, in the feisty year of the fire horse, I was raised by a strong single mom, who taught me to be strong, resourceful, and master world cuisine. ~ Willful, resourceful, and adventurous, I left my home at 18 and spent 15 years traveling, and living around the world, while working as a fairly successful, yet bulimic and somewhat dissociated fitness and fashion model.
A divine inner sense of what my heart and health needed led me on a truly transformational healing journey through Asia and Australia, where my experience with internal cleansing, Kriya yoga, living foods, and breath work, made a profound and lasting impact. I found forgiveness, and Self-healing, realizing that true beauty, power, and vitality, come from the inside.
I immersed myself in studies with a master's in natural health, and settled in California over twenty-five years ago, to build my practice as a yoga and holistic health practitioner. ~ Blessed to have worked closely with master healers like Watsu® founder Harold Dull, life coach Anthony Robbins, rabbi Alyson Solomon, yogini Ana Forest, dance guru Marianne Karou, drum facilitator Paulo Mattioli, healer Connie Allred, and holistic midwives Mary Jackson, and Marina Alzugaray, founder of American Aqua Natal,
Having successfully home-birthed two healthy boys in my forties, and after assisting numerous births, I have a particular passion for working with women, and families preparing for pregnancy, during, and after birth. ~ My work is teaching Self-care, as I service people healing from birth, trauma, loss, stress, illness, and injuries, LOVE is my fuel and the most powerful force in the universe! ~ It is through acknowledging, embracing, and accepting what is, that we heal...
So, as I re-birthed mySelf through holistic disciplines, I'm honored and excited to offer you skillful and graceful guidance toward a healthier, stronger, more confident sense of yourSelf as you access, utilize, and enjoy all that you were born to be.
I look forward to connecting with YOU, via phone or email, so we can schedule a session or make a plan to co-create a program to support your greater wellness and vitality. Welcome! Ninaya

Ninaya's level of commitment
and desire to bring forth a
program for those at any level of understanding is inspiring!I am ever honored to be a part of anything Ninaya is doing as I know it will be nourishing and healing.
I got off coffee, sugar, dairy, meat and gluten completely and don’t plan to go back, yeah!! I have been told I look 10 years younger by 3 people already this week! And I have tons of energy.
Ninaya showed me how important it is to gently prepare my body before the juice cleanse and to gradually come out of it. I now have new recipes to support a healthy diet and many creative ways to prepare food and juice ahead of time
