About the Founder



A holistic lifestyle is a way of living.

You have a holistic lifestyle when you incorporate healthy choices in your daily life and yearly activities plan.

For example by adding new habits and certain practices daily to your routine. Or by participating in leisure and regenerative activities with some frequency and rhythm. Or by organizing leisure, culture, and travel destinations that create an empowering, and nurturing experience in your life.


A holistic lifestyle evolves over time, it becomes more personal, as you learn day by day what you really need or want, and how you prefer to experience it or give it to yourself. 

There is so much you can learn and do well for yourself. For example how to nurture and regenerate your body, feelings, mind, creativity, and inspiration. Your holistic lifestyle becomes slowly unique because it is all about you. So you decide your preferences and you make the choices, all the time.



  1. whole, entire, perfect, complete
  2. absolute, utter
  3. generally, on the whole


Characterized by the treatment of the whole dilemma, taking into account all factors, rather than just some or specific aspects of them. By applying the approach to health, education, lifestyle, business, family, creativity, innovation, and research, ... a new regenerative and inclusive culture evolves, in which each individual is acknowledged in their own values, needs, and preferences.


The theory that parts of a whole are in intimate interconnection, such that they cannot exist independently of the whole, or cannot be understood without reference to the whole, which is thus regarded as greater than the sum of its parts.
