Kori {Holistic Nutritionist + Life Coach} -- Lifestyle Session

"Half of me is filled with bursting words and half of me is painfully shy. I crave solitude yet also crave people. I want to pour life and love into everything yet also nurture my self care and go gently. I want to live within the rush of primal intuitive decision, yet also wish to sit & contemplate. This is the messiness of life – that we all carry multitudes, so must sit with the shifts. We are complicated creatures and the balance comes from that understanding. Be ok with the flow. Be water. Flexible and soft. Subtly powerful and open. Wild and serene. Able to carry and accept all changes yet still led by the pull of steady tides. It is enough”{Victoria Erickson}

If I had to choose just 3 words to describe Kori, they would be: intuitive, real, open-hearted. When I try and explain her to other people in my life, I always say that she has an energy about her that makes you want to tell her anything + everything; you can spend 5 minutes sharing wine with her and feel like you've known her for the entirety of your life. Kori is a holistic nutritionist, life coach, and personal + group fitness trainer who divides her time between Calgary, Alberta and the quiet solitude of her magical forest cabin on the Sunshine Coast. She's no stranger to my blog {you can find her free spirit session here}, and certainly no stranger to my life. She writes her own blog and fills her online journal with nutrition thoughts, recipes, tribe talk, exploration of the feminine heart, and so so so much more!!

Kori, Teresa, and I spent the entirety of this past Saturday hanging around Calgary shooting an incredible lifestyle session that took us from the bustling aisles of the Calgary Farmer's Market, to the calmness of our kitchen, to the wind blown hills of Nose Hills Park. It was a day filled with endless laughter, happy tears, and pure inspiration. I love you ladies so much.
