Three wellness specialists come together in this live workshop to talk about the natural ways of staying energized throughout the day without crashes, sleepless nights, or having to reach for that venti mocha-something 1/2 way through the day.

Ariana Fotinakis is passionate about helping people move their bodies in a way that excites them and makes them feel good. As a Personal Trainer and Holistic Lifestyle Coach, she believes there is no such thing as a one-size fits all approach when it comes to health and wellness.

Nadya Pecherskaya loves to share her knowledge and passion for healthy living. The success of Nadya's clients can be mainly attributed to the educational process and individual approach that Nadya always focuses on.

Kimmy Xiao envisions a matcha community for people who value leading a healthy and active lifestyle. As a busy mother of two young children, Kimmy struggled with low energy and caffeine overdose until she found her perfect cup of matcha, balanced diet and workout routine.
