What is your wellness philosophy?
My wellness philosophy is that we are all living our own experience and what works for each of us is truly unique. Experimenting with what works for you at different points in your life is the fun part of wellness. There is so much to discover.
What brought you into wellness?
I fell in love with yoga when I was 22—for me it was a game-changing, eye-opening moment that shifted me from a relationship of antagonism with my body to one of love. It changed the way I ate, thought, and moved. I became fascinated with the mind-body connection, and went to medical school to dive even deeper into that. From there my desire to help heal as many people as possible was born. Now, medicine, nutrition science, and yoga make up the fabric of my work and my life.
What does You. We. All. mean to you?
You. We. All. is such a powerful call to action for our times. It's a manifesto for change that starts with one and reverberates to the masses. Just how Parsley Health started with me and now has helped thousands of people. We can all affect change on such a big level these days.
What's your favorite ritual?
My favorite ritual is cooking with my family. It's healthy, it's calm, it's nourishing, and it's creative. It's the opposite of looking at a screen. It's one of the most powerful practices we have.
