Mela Stevens is a National Board Certified Health Coach, an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, and a Quantum Method Coach, working with holistic-based nutrition and wellness for individuals and with groups for over 15 years. This works focuses on the whole person and with health being a foundation, it also extends past nutrition/health coaching to include lifestyle and business coaching.

Her passion for radical self-care came from a former career as the owner of a NYC based marketing communications company when she thought self-care meant getting to the gym a few times a week.  It ended there when a combination of burn-out and self-study on whole body wellness led to a return to school and a career change.  The journey began there and it doesn’t look like there is an end in sight! 

Mela holds a Bachelor’s degree from Long Island University, She is accredited by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners is a member of the Yoga Alliance, as a 500 hour registered yoga teacher.  She is a Myers-Briggs Facilitator and Mela is also a writer and speaker who brings all of her history/experience/life acumen into her teaching and coaching.  It is her belief that breath, movement, proper nourishment, rest, service and bringing some joy/fun into each day comprises an extraordinary life.  And if there’s a will, there’s a way.

She teaches and coaches individuals, groups, and corporate clients in person and through teleclass, throughout the country, based in the Hudson Valley in Rhinebeck, New York. As an adjunct for her passion for self-care, you can find Mela dancing with the Manhattan-based NY Pacemakers senior dance team. And, one night a week she is slowly honing her skill at table tennis (which, she admits, she oftentimes had been referring to as “ping pong”!)
