I am a living testament to the principles of a vibrant, holistic lifestyle—an advocate for health, a muse for those seeking balance, and a nurturing force in the realm of holistic wellness. Embracing the titles of a wild woman healer, a sweet sister's doula, and a relentless mama bear care-taker, my journey is woven with a passion for service and an innate ability to sense and address the needs and obstacles of others.

In the tapestry of my life, love is my guiding philosophy, and my spiritual name, Ninaya, translates to "Follow the path of my laughing heart." Born in 1966 in the spirited landscape of southern Sweden, I carry the wisdom imparted by my strong single mother who instilled in me resilience, resourcefulness, and a mastery of global cuisines.

Venturing forth at 18, I spent 15 transformative years as a fitness and fashion model, navigating success amidst the challenges of bulimia and dissociation. A profound healing journey across Asia and Australia beckoned, introducing me to internal cleansing, Kriya yoga, living foods, and breath work—a journey that reshaped my understanding of true beauty, power, and vitality emerging from within.

Formal studies in natural health culminated in a master's degree, and my path led me to California over two decades ago. There, I cultivated my practice as a yoga and holistic health practitioner, collaborating with esteemed healers such as Watsu® founder Harold Dull, life coach Anthony Robbins, and yogini Ana Forest, among others.

The transformative experience of home-birthing two healthy boys in my forties ignited a passion for supporting women and families through pregnancy, birth, and beyond. Grounded in teaching self-care, my mission extends to aiding individuals in healing from birth, trauma, loss, stress, illness, and injuries—fueled by the conviction that love is the greatest force in the universe.

My journey is one of rebirth through holistic disciplines, and I am eager to extend skillful and graceful guidance to those seeking a healthier, stronger, and more confident sense of self. Let us connect, whether by phone or email, to schedule a session or co-create a program tailored to support your journey towards greater wellness.

I Welcome You, in the Spirit of Love and Vitality,

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
