Serena’s purpose and motivation as a nutritionist is to provide information and nutrient-dense food to help you thrive.

When it comes to making decisions about your health, no one prescription fits all, and that is why Serena works with you on a plan that fits your lifestyle. Improving your health shouldn’t be scary or stressful. Serena believes that looking after yourself is an inside job, which includes how you think and feel about food. With a holistic approach, functional testing and pathology, if needed, Serena can work with you to find the root cause of your health concerns.

From preconception care to postpartum nurturing, weight concerns, low energy, nutritional deficiencies, stress and children’s health. Serena educates and empowers you to understand your body to make better health choices.

Working with a nutritionist involves the investigation of your health concerns through case taking, pathology and functional testing to find the root cause. A plan is created that suits your lifestyle and budget through working together. Removing stress and overwhelm to help you learn and understand the changes that need to be made. Nutrition isn’t just about eating vegetables. It’s about learning about your body, its needs, taking control and ownership of your health to be at your best. Nutrition is about gifting your body, mind and soul the right fuel to fire your engines to propel you through the daily grind and what gets thrown at you. Nutritional consults are available to all ages and stages of life, from planning for a baby, fatigue, weight management, children’s health, women’s health to digestive complaints. We all need to eat to nourish and fuel our bodies, so why not learn more about your body and how to optimise digestion and absorption? Poor nutrition can impact performance, sleep, digestion, brain function and cause deficiencies. It’s not about eating perfectly. It’s about finding what works best for you. Everybody has a different starting point for health; seeing a nutritionist can educate and empower you to take better care of yourself.

Andreina Innocenti

Pilates 

 

Andreina is a movement nerd and a pregnancy and birth lover. After experiencing two very empowering home births that transformed her completely, she knew that she had to do something to help shift the birth paradigm and support families to experience that. Here is where her passion for movement and her obsession to prove that the body is an amazing, clever and resilient thing merge, and she focused on learning more from experts about how movement can

help pregnancy, birth and recovery. She is talking knowledge beyond the basics of do’s and don’ts in pregnancy.

We know that a balanced body that moves well will perform well, but it will also help with uterus alignment, balanced ligaments and muscles, Pelvic floor response, core support, space for the baby to navigate. A free pelvis that allows the Sacrum to move creates space in the inlet, mid pelvis and outlet. A supple pelvic floor that yields and much more (seriously, I could be talking about this for ages). Not just this, Breathing and psoas love will help to calm the nervous system, and a fascia movement approach will help to untangle many things. Wouldn’t it be amazing to nail all these things before birth? For the pregnant person to tune and trust their bodies before birth happens?Andreina’s pilates session approach is adaptable to the pregnant person’s needs and personality. It aligns what they want to serve them better through education while working in conjunction with their birthing team. We all know that most of us will need to do less and be more mindful of allowing the softness to make us stronger, and yes, pregnant people having caesareans also need this work for many reasons.
