Meet The Contributors

Elements For A Healthier Life is community of contributors writers sharing their passions, life experiences and knowledge with individuals with a desire to live a life in motion. Our contributor writers are heart-centered coaches (health, life, business, marketing), business professionals, yoga instructors, women and men who have been-there-done-that and truly want to help someone in the early stages of a similar journey.

Our messages convey compassion, encouragement and tools to expand self-love. We publish nonfiction stories of transformation, professional insights, pearls of wisdom, helpful kitchen tips and healthy recipes.
