SPORTS AND PERSONAL INTERESTS
A fascination with nature and harmonious living has driven Limor to immerse herself in the exploration of alternative views of medicine, particularly Ayurveda and yoga. In her free-spirited years, she has spent considerable time traveling the globe and learning about these profound practices and the body-mind connection. As her roots now continue to deepen in NYC, Limor expands on her vast knowledge by attending scientific conferences and learning about mindfulness and meditation.

Few things have the potential to so powerfully change our physical, mental and emotional states as the food we eat. Limor is an advocate of the non-diet approach where all food groups are part of a diet and counting calories is not a daily activity. She believes that attaining a healthy weight, eating a balanced diet, and avoiding many ailments are within arm’s reach for anyone with patience, reliable information, and compassion. Limor treats every new client as a blank canvas. No judgments. No pre-perceived notions. By carefully listening and fully understanding clients' special needs, she crafts individualized nutrition and fitness plans and continues to motivate, educate, coach, and share her love for food and nutrition.
"The body is your temple. Keep it pure and clean for the soul to reside in." (BKS Iyengar)
