Hi there, I'm Johanne.
I am a certified health coach, yoga instructor, Reiki master/teacher, wellness retreat leader, heart-based entrepreneur, and a lover of tropical climates, animals, and nature. I am a constant learner of subjects related to wellness and personal growth. Sharing my passions, meaningful connections and authentic conversations nourish me.
I am devoted to empowering the health and wellness of others with the intent of helping them live their lives to the fullest. I believe everybody should have an advocate for their health and wellbeing.
I am originally from Montreal, Canada, I am trilingual and I am living my best life. After quitting my corporate job and investing 15 years in the best form of education; i.e., traveling, I have made my home on a gorgeous nature reserve in the Peruvian rainforest where I offer quaint, authentic, nourishing transformational wellness retreats with Armando, my life partner.
Creating a heart-based career I love has been a big motivator in my life. I love to connect with people in a meaningful way. Inspiring others to become a better version of themselves and supporting them on their quest to thrive, is what gives meaning to my life journey.
I have arrived at many crossroads on my journey and I succeeded in creating a life I love. I am always growing (learning) and my life is fulfilling.
“Each one of us can use our own personal journey to serve others and do rewarding work in the world that supports us and makes a real difference."

On the left side of the screen, you will find more details about my training, specialties, credentials, and passions.
I would love to get to know you and support you on your own unique journey to health and fulfillment.
I can do so in the beautiful setting of wellness retreats. For those who cannot make it to the Amazon rainforest, it is possible to connect in the comfort of your own home via the internet (Zoom) or over the phone for wellness coaching sessions.
I studied at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating and learned so much.
The art of healing your relationship with food and with your body is very powerful because food has the power to transform our health.
We are all eaters, therefore we all have a unique relationship with food driven by our enviroment, beliefs, mindset, emotions, and past. Many of us have an interesting (read challenging, confused, frustrated, unhealthy...) relationship with food, to say the least.
Interestingly, what we eat is only half the story of good nutrition and health. Who we are as eaters is just as important as the food we put into our body. This is where my holistic approach (psychology of eating) is innovative; being in the ideal state to digest and assimilate food is the other half of the story. This ideal state happens to be relaxation.
Does stress have an impact on your appetite, on your digestion, on your food choices?
Do you often find yourself eating while standing or multitasking?
If you answered yes to some or all of these questions, I would love to help you cultivate a new relationship with food and your Self.
I am on a mission to help others heal their relationship with food and improve their health and create a better lifestyle.
Are you ready to transform your relationship with food and your body? Are you ready to create a more balanced life?
Are you ready to become a better version of yourself?
