Holistic Nutrition

Alisha created the Mindful Balance programs as models of empowerment that view the person as a whole rather than focusing on specific symptoms or ailments. As a Certified Nutritionist and Certified Yoga Therapist she will provide comprehensive methods to safely and effectively deal with health concerns.  This holistic approach would steer away from diagnosing or prescribing but focus on education that allows the opportunity to achieve a balanced lifestyle which creates harmony within the body and mind.   

This integrative approach to healing can include any number of therapies which are designed to compliment each other and western medicine. Once the initial consultation has been completed an individualized program will be designed to help guide you on this journey.

Alisha has changed mine and my partner’s life forever. As rational Engineers we both are, we started doing yoga as a workout routine to improve our flexibility and core strength. Little did we know… Alisha turned her yoga and mindful nutrition practice into a life style for both of us. Given her perfect approach of living a healthy but practical life, yoga has become not only a great exercise routine, but also way to discover our bodies together as a couple. Her holistic approach to exercise, nutrition, and mind health has been a realistic goal for us to pursue during the rest of our lives. I have also followed her cleansing program which was easy to adapt to our hectic schedules, while doing wonders for our bodies.

I’ve had the privilege of having Alisha Welch as an adaptive yoga teacher and a nutritionist. She displays by her actions that she has a vast pool of knowledge in yoga, so as a student you feel very relaxed and ready to give her your full attention. She never makes you push your body to a point of injury. She is by far one of the best adaptive yoga teachers that I’ve been under.
As a nutritionist she went above and beyond my expectations, my situation is a little different because of my disability. There are certain things I can not do but because of her knowledge she was able to give several suggestions for food and recommendations for certain tools I could try in the kitchen. Alisha has been a shining light in my life as a nutritionist, a yoga teacher, and a friend.
