I'm Savannah and I'm so happy you found your way here. I am a music school graduate turned passionate health, wellness & natural living fiend. I was happily raised in the middle of the woods in rural Michigan where I developed a deep connection to nature. I believe taking your health into your own hands through food & other conscious choices is deeply empowering and so important (and absolutely accessible to everyone). I am a Holistic Health Coach, musician, student of herbalism, avid reader, parenthesis-lover, self-care junkie, loving partner to Scott the rock star (literally but also figuratively) & mom to Ella (my calico kitty).
The significance of "Nourish Shakti"
The name "Nourish Shakti" came to me over a year before I officially launched my business. In Hinduism, Shakti (SHOCK-tee) is the personification of divine feminine energy.
I received my music performance degree from Ithaca College, NY. My passion for holistic health was cultivated at a young age thanks to my parents, who were sending me to school with a packed lunch of homemade whole wheat bread, soups, veggies, etc. (in a reusable lunchbox, too) before it was "cool"! After graduating music school and becoming aware of unhealthy habits I had developed & retained while there (hindsight is 20/20...), I began to dabble in herbalism, making my own beauty products, veganism (decided it wasn't for me), improv-cooking (can I coin that term?), I moved to France (hence the no veganism)--hello cheese!, and I did a lot of research and reading on all things natural living.
I received my holistic health coaching training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and many dietary theories ranging from Ayurveda, gluten-free and Paleo to raw, macrobiotics, vegan, and everything in between. With my knowledge and experience, we co-create completely personalized actions based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health, within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources.
With my unique perspective and experiences, I help those who feel their health & happiness are affected by a lack of balance, mental, physical & emotional exhaustion, a lack of energy, negative self-image & low confidence, who feel creatively blocked, and who are ready to embark on a lifelong journey of transition, awareness & radiant health.
