Want to improve your health and maintain a well-balanced
lifestyle? Put yourself in the right places and surround yourself
with like-minded people to change your mindset about fitness.
Heath is a lifestyle journey, not just a workout class a few times
a week. From teaching yoga for more than 5 years, I’ve noticed
behavior patterns that my most successful yoga students
implement to stay fit and look and feel their best. Changing bad
habits is the most challenging aspect of transformation while
being the single most important aspect of optimal health. By
being in places and associating with people that reinforce a
commitment to heath, the chances of success are much greater.
A shift in mentality, a strong support system and making minor
changes to poor habits will have a long-lasting effect greater
than any diet fads or workout trends. Being raised in Colorado, I
grew up with a love and admiration for the outdoors and nature.
That, combined with my yogi lifestyle, has been the catalyst for
bringing Juice Lab to Key Biscayne. We utilize locally sourced
produce to create seasonal, farm-to-bottle blends of fresh juices,
smoothies and cleanses.
