Total years in practice: 5
Hi! I am Ceylan Ayik, certified Integrative Nutrition Healthy Living Coach and RYT 600hours Yoga Teacher. I am passionate about empowering busy mothers to help them transform their mind, health and bodies through optimal nutrition, as well as guiding them to become the healthy confident role model for their children, family and community which is really need in today’s world. I received my training at Integrative Nutrition in New York City where I had the opportunity to learn from the world’s leading experts in the field of holistic health and nutrition. I received my 400 Hour Hatha and Power yoga teacher training in Switzerland, 100 hour Hatha Antastha in Goa, India. I did my 100hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training on Body Reading and Anatomy in Nyon, Switzerland with Yogalife school. Alongside my busy family health coaching practice and yoga teaching, I am a mother of two, wife, writer for my Fit & Gourmet blog. I also lead workshops on nutrition and offer tailored private or group health coaching, as well as one-on-one health and nutrition coaching packages. They include optional pantry detoxes, cooking lessons and clean food shopping trips. Life before coaching! Prior to my coaching life, I worked in the marketing departments of international companies, for products that I try to limit myself to now! I was in the food and beverages industry for more than 15 years, did many new product launches and campaigns myself! I was a busy working mom, trying to manage my time among my family, house, work, sports, friends...you probably know the story! I changed so many habits that I would never think that I could! I was drinking almost a litre of Diet Coke, 3-4 cups of coffee, plus some black tea. I loved eating cheese and breads/crackers in the afternoon and always snacked in between meals with my "diet crackers"! Tried so many diets and usually disappointed with results. I had a sedentary lifestyle, had no or just little time to exercise. I did my best for healthier living yet struggled to keep it consistent. Through my coaching and yoga training, I finally enjoy a healthier lifestyle, consistent and pleasurable for myself and my family.
