Hi, I’m Janelle Laurito
As a Mindset Shifter and Change Agent, my purpose is to help you realign with your true, authentic Self.
I’m a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Yoga Teacher. I guide women in switching up the story in their minds by empowering them to adopt simple daily self-care practices so they can realign with their truest self.
I believe that life is too short to not be lived well, and it’s our birthright to love and live our true, authentic selves.
My method is simple: I guide my clients through my three pillars of wellness: mindfulness, movement, and nourishment.
Who I am
I’m a soul-seeking, life aficionado, native Rhode Islander, yoga and fitness junkie, wellness enthusiast, and food and wine lover.
I’m also a former disordered eater, perfectionist, anxiety-ridden hot mess, and corporate career dropout.
In high school I lost 15 pounds from anxiety and stress that kickstarted my disordered eating relationship. I developed emotional eating and drinking behaviors, turning to food and alcohol for every social event, every stressor, and every uncomfortable situation (yes, for celebrations, too of course).
Throughout college and into my twenties I experimented with nearly every diet on the market – until I figured out how to change my story.
I started practicing yoga to manage my anxiety and stress. I loved the physical exhaustion from pushing my body to a new limit, the way it calmed me down, enhanced my breath, quieted my mind, and ultimately connect me to my true self. I became hooked. It also forced me to take a real, raw look at myself. This was the start of my wellness journey.
I realized I was:
- living a life unaligned with my values and truth
- anxious, stressed, and miserable
- a denying disordered eater and alcohol abuser
- unfulfilled and unhappy in my job
I felt unaligned, lost and confused, frustrated and overwhelmed. But hopeful and determined to change.
I sought out healers, teachers, wellness experts and resources on personal transformation and healthful eating.
Ultimately, I changed my story.
I became a Yoga Teacher because I needed to share this ‘magical’ tool with others. I teach students to push their bodies out of their comfort zone and quiet their minds so they too can re-discover and marvel at who they truly are.
I became a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach so I can formally coach others how to change their story, too.
I quit my comfortable corporate career to follow my calling.
Now I help others dismantle their blocks and uncover their truths.
I believe that life is too short to feel unhealthy and to think negatively. I believe that we all have a divine purpose in life, and I know that my purpose is to help others return home to themselves.
I believe that living well doesn’t have to be scary, difficult, or costly; it can be empowering, fun, and creative. My goal is so make living well easy and accessible.
I want to empower, educate, and inspire you to adopt your own simple daily self-care practices that not only have saved me, but brought me home to my true self.
Here’s to living well, openly, honestly, lovingly, and joyfully.
