A Road Map To Optimal Health & Wellness

Whether you are currently experiencing health challenges – or just in pursuit of a higher level of health and personal performance, this 8-week immersion program offers a unique opportunity to establish a solid foundation for healing and maintaining well-being at a higher level.

We will journey together for 8-weeks

Every week, through our online academy platform, you’ll receive a lesson, a meal plan, a shopping list, a fitness schedule, and additional resources to help cultivate a healthier relationship with yourself and the world around you.

Your journey will be supported by eight weekly small-group coaching sessions with Nikki and Zuzana. All sessions are approximately 90 minutes in length and conducted via Zoom video. These interactive sessions are a vital component of the Integrated Living program. They provide a unique opportunity to strengthen your knowledge and are designed to get you ready to apply what you learn to your daily life. A small group coaching environment is also an ideal way to stay committed to your goals and discover more about yourself in the process.

Because we want to ensure that you receive the attention and guidance required for success, space is very limited.

*Small-group coaching sessions will only be available during the designated time slots you select during registration. If you are unable to attend, a recording will be provided.

Holistic living practitioners, founders of ActiveVegetarian.com, authors of Vegan Weight Loss Manifesto and The Plant-Powered Athlete.

Both of us have been living a plant-based life for over two decades, and during this time we have encountered many amazing benefits this lifestyle offers. Overcoming personal health challenges along the journey have inspired us to emerge into the study of nutrition and holistic wellness. Over the years our passion has evolved to empowering and coaching individuals to take responsibility for not only their health, but their life experience as a whole.

We created the Integrated Living program to help you improve your health and transform the quality of your life in the comfort of your own home. You will learn how to create a healthy, balanced lifestyle by overhauling your eating habits, movement, mindset and daily routines. We’ll take this one step at a time so you won’t get overwhelmed. The Integrated Living course is a vehicle of change, loaded with helpful health information and practical knowledge and tools to enable you to take action and change your life one step at a time!

We are pleased that you’ve found this holistic online experience and we look forward to supporting you on your journey to a healthier and more conscious life!

A lot of stress and unhappiness is caused by the pursuit of stuff. More money, a bigger house, a better car, more clothes, more this, more that. Do we really need it?
