My Story

Hi there! I’m Dr. Renata Taravski, Naturopathic Doctor, Life Coach, Yoga Teacher, & Chocoholic.  I’m happy you’re here and honoured to share my story on how I got to where I am today….

First things first.

I didn’t come out of my mother’s womb doing the downward dog and eating organic granola.

For real. 

Before I discovered the world of natural medicine, personal development and yoga, I struggled with severe IBS, an eating disorder, depression, anxiety,  and hormonal imbalances(PMS, irregular cycles, and seizures).

It wasn’t until my early twenties when I hit my breaking point.

I was at my lowest weight, and I never felt more lost in my life.  Being a straight A student, I was barely passing school, in complete denial about my problems, and  my relationships were all strained. I had so much shame about the way I looked and felt that I shut everyone out.  I felt dead inside.

I didn’t recognize myself anymore but deep down inside I knew in my soul that I was meant to do something bigger with my life. Even though I didn’t know how I was going to do it, I made myself a promise that I was going to over come this….

No. Matter. What. It. Took. I figured what’s the worst thing that could happen at this point. I get the life I want?

Through my journey in  Naturopathic Medicine, Life Coaching, and Yoga, I discovered that a lifestyle upgrade – both inside and out that was true to my soul(I know it just got real deep), was the way I was going to get the health, happiness, freedom, and fulfillment I was searching for.

And it was truly a life changing experience.

My health problems resolved, and I feel and look better than I’ve ever have in my entire life. But most importantly, I’m happy with who I am(quirks and all), I made peace with my body, I let go of who I’m “suppose to be,” and embracing instead who I am.

After everything I discovered( and will continue to discover), I’m here to share what I learned with others who are suffering feeling stuck, frustrated and unsatisfied with their health, body, and life

I believe that everyone(yes I’m talking to you) deserves to have a kick-ass life, feel and look amazing, and own their awesomeness. Even when things aren’t bunnies and rainbows, to have the resilience and ability to handle whatever life decides to toss our way. And I’ve committed my life to helping people get just that.

After all, life isn’t always “kumbaya,” but full of all sorts of colourful adventures that help us grow and allow us to learn more about who we are.
