WHAT I DO IN A FEW SHORT WORDS.
It’s no mystery that yoga and nutrition go hand-in-hand. Together, these two practices nourish us and lift us up, making us better people, inside and out. Not to mention, happier.
I’m a certified yoga teacher and registered dietitian/nutritionist in Westchester County, New York with over fifteen years spent learning, growing, and teaching in the field of health and wellness. I apply my experience, my expertise, and most of all, my enthusiasm when I work with clients who want to make big or small, but most of all realistic changes to the way they feel every single day. Through writing, coaching, and striving to simply be an example through my own lifestyle, I hope to inspire YOU on the mat, in the kitchen, and throughout your daily life.

WHAT I REALLY WANNA SAY I DO
Cause we all know a bio can be boring...
Hey! (insert wave).
I'm JENNIFER VAGIOS. I consider myself a wellness influencer, strategist and expert.
:: I help extremely busy professional women and men, working moms, and tightly wound Type A's who desperately want to make health a priority but need gentle (or swift kick) in the pants. Whether you've never done yoga or meditated, doesn't matter, I'll get you started, keep you inspired and help you achieve goals unique to you.
:: Having been in the field of health and wellness for 15+ years has given me loads of tools to create a well rounded and holistic approach to health. I'm a 500 hour + ISHTA trained yoga teacher who holds a Masters Degree from Columbia University in Applied Physiology and Nutrition, just for starters.
:: I'm like a zen fairy (or batman, minus the cape smelling like patchouli holding a broccoli wand). Through in person yoga, nutrition, essential oil treatments, or skype sessions, I provide tools to create realistic, simple and sustainable solutions to struggles such as severe stress, exhaustion, overwhelm, sleep issues, anxiety, digestive problems (specifically Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and/or aches and pains in the body.
:: I teach Yoga, cause It makes me all sorts of happy, strong, flexible and frankly it keeps me sane!
:: Through inspirational blogging, sharing of drool worthy yet indulgent recipes, and daily posts on instagram I'm here to remind you that healthy is a lifestyle, and a choice. It's your choice.
:: I'm the catalyst to change all with a side of dark chocolate, the scent of lavendar lingering and loads of laughs.
:: I'm somewhat famous. My advice, insights and tips have been featured on glossy magazines + web portals like Yoga Journal, NY Yoga + Life Magazine (listed as Teachers we love), Food Network Healthy Eats blog, My Recipes, MindBodyGreen, Oribe Hair Care, Disney Baby, Food Press and more.
WHEN I'M NOT....
Teaching yoga, concocting a recipe, squeezing in my own sweaty workout, or hanging out on instagram; you can find me plotting and planning my next vacation (likely in a warm environment), shamelessly binge watching bravo TV shows, singing out loud (I used to be a wedding singer) while probably sipping a cup of coffee. Or I'm feeding my pinterest addiction, cause let's be honest, that could be a full time job.
