Arianna Sertoli is a triple threat: clever chef, knowledgeable health coach and patient yoga teacher. She is a very warm person and easy to talk to. I asked her a little more about what she does and what inspires her. See the mini interview lower.
Arianna, tell me exactly what do you do and what inspires you?
I am an Italian enthusiast woman living in the hectic New York City, owning my business as a private chef, health coach and yoga teacher. I live in Brooklyn and I spread my love around.
To start as a private chef this entails that I cook a lot, the kitchen is my sanctuary. I organize supper clubs in various locations to debunk the idea that healthy food is not tasty. I bring healthy farm to table, local and homemade to the table. I also believe that at home you should learn how to cook and make simply meals for you and your family to stay healthy and happy. Here is where I come into, and teach you how to make this happen.
As an health coach I work with man, women and young adult and focus on making changes to fit their mental and physical goal trough different methods. Everything is custom fit. Since we are all different and one diet doesn’t fit all.
I include yoga in my practice because I believe is a great way to bring movement to the body and there are many practices to learn and keep our mind calm. In today’s world we are always pushed with many worries and stresses with meditation we can clear our mind and become more focus, and with yoga movement we can strengthen the body is a more elegant and ligneous way then simply lifting weights.
My guess is that as as a health coach you suggest incorporating a lot of vegetables and fruits in your clients’ dishes. What do you personally prefer – vegetable or fruit?
I love all kind of mother earth fruits and vegetables. As a fruit I love summer ones, peaches, berries, watermelon or apricots, as veggies the leafy greens are delicious to me, as well as I adore pumpkins of any kinds and summer zucchini.
What is your favorite dish?
I love fish and anything that goes with it is a winner for me. I am also a lover of guacamole (is so simple to make and good for you!)
What are you most excited about right now?
My Book coming out this summer! It took sometime to get the courage to do it and finally everything is falling into place. I wrote a in season cooking and yoga book that will bring you back to the simplicity of a healthy home cooked meal, as well as few yoga poses to make you feel open, relax and ready to embrace each season.
