Welcome to Courtney Ford Wellness!

I am so happy you're here! Let me take a brief moment to introduce myself and share my mission! I am a Colorado native living in San Diego. While I feel blessed to be in this beautiful city during this season of my life, I sure do miss the mountains and definitely see myself moving to the woods sometime in my future. What's that saying? "You can take the girl out of the mountains (or wherever) but you can't take the mountains (or wherever) out of the girl". RESONATE.
I started this page during the 2019 Carona Virus pandemic and my second year living in SD. Like many of us, I've had a little extra time on my hands so I tackled this goal of mine. I have been working as a full time yoga teacher and this profession was not deemed "essential" so like many, I was out of work. At first I was PISSED. Then I realized, Heyo! I've been itching to add to my tool belt. I took the plunge in holistic training,starting with Ayurveda and moving to nutrition and life coaching. Why? Because I love to be in servitude to my peeps. Going through these freaking "unprecedented times" (If I hear that one more time, I'll probably blow a gasket) I realized that my future was changing weather I was ready or not, so why fight it? I decided to lean in and see what happens.
I went route of Holism because I believe there are some major discrepancies within America's health industry. Westernized anything places value only on the almighty dollar with little to no care about the well being of the people those decisions are affecting. It's almost impossible to know what to eat without poisoning yourself, big Pharma doesn't care about prevention and the efforts of the FDA to regulate chemicals conventional farmers use on our food products is lackluster to say the least.
I believe we can effect change by educating ourselves and one another. Holistic nutrition, in my eyes, believes that food is our medicine and focuses on prevention of disease with proper nutrition. That will mean something different to each human on the planet and I'd like to help you start the journey if that's where you're headed.
Here I will talk about a lot of different topics, because this is how I learn also! I'm passionate about movement, mind body connection, resetting our thought processes to live our BEST FREAKING LIVES. If you're into it, tag along! This information should be free to everyone and I'd like to share it with you.
