Hi, my name is Mike Murdoch. I am passionate about healing body and mind through Mindful Eating & Nutrition, Yoga, and Reiki. My vision is to shift our food system by sharing knowledge, all while helping people find their own personal path towards Optimal Health.
My entire life has evolved around food having worked in the Food Service industry coming on 20 years. For better or worse, cooking and eating has always played a central role in my day to day life. Growing up inactive, overfed and undernourished; weight and body image issues were a constant for most of my life. Beyond giving my thumbs a good Tetris workout, no form of physical activity ever fit. The whole thing was just too exhausting to think about. As life pulled me along I became a Cordon Bleu trained chef and started working in the corporate world. In the last decade I’ve worked for some of Canada’s largest food retailers as a recipe developer and tester. Yoga changed all of that. The practice transformed me. Not just physically, but emotionally as well. A consistent yoga and meditation practice helped me to find inner calmness and self-appreciation. Ten months after my first yoga experience, I was a certified teacher! This stuff works and I’m determined to share the magic with anyone who is open to shifting what’s possible. In the last few years I got more and more interested in nutrition and the healing potential of food and diet choices. In 2016 I became a Culinary Nutrition Expert and started combining my passions of Mindfulness & Yoga with Food & Nutrition. My own struggles shaped who I am, and I hope that through sharing my knowledge and experience I can help people to find their own Personal path towards Optimal Health.
