Meet Miriam Amselem of Naturally Healthy By Miri in Hollywood/Fort Lauderdale

Today we’d like to introduce you to Miriam Amselem.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Miriam. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
My Holistic Wellness journey started 30 years ago when I started practicing Yoga and Meditation plus healthy eating and exercising. I loved leading a healthy lifestyle because I felt balanced, full of energy, fit and strong. My passion for optimum health led me to become a certified yoga instructor and meditation guide (20 years and counting). 15 years ago, I decided to get a degree in Holistic Nutrition (Bachelor’s) which educated me in Ayurvedic Health, disease prevention, behavior changes with habits of wholesome eating, nutrition counseling and how to improve the quality of life through an Holistic approach. In the past couple of years, I have taken Mindfulness workshops in order to incorporate that into my Holistic Health approach and I’ve added Corporate Wellness to my business.

As the owner of Naturally Healthy By Miri, I promote myself as a one-stop-shop for total wellness that covers the body, mind and spirit – with yoga and meditation session on the beach because in our high tech world, we all need to connect with nature; Holistic Nutrition counseling sessions to lead a healthy balanced lifestyle for the long term and prevent disease; Mindfulness workshops focusing on overcoming stress, anxiety and depression; and lastly I’m also a fitness coach, helping people of all ages incorporate exercise into their daily lives. Lastly, I bring all these Holistic approaches together in my one day Ladies Wellness Retreats which are meant to inspire, transform and empower.

Has it been a smooth road?
I don’t believe that there’s such a thing as a smooth road for any business. My biggest challenge is explaining how a Holistic Nutritionist differs from a Registered Dietitian. Additionally, I had to learn how to promote myself in the world of Social Media. All business owners face challenges but like I say to my meditation clients “Emulate the palm tree; it bends but doesn’t break during life’s unpredictable storms”.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Because I’m the owner and only “employee” of Naturally Healthy by Miri, I have been nicknamed the “Wellness Warrior”. My clients are my priority and I take a personal approach with every one of them. The company’s motto is “Transform Your Life and Embrace the Journey to a Healthy You” and that has been my personal mantra for the past 30 years. What sets me apart is that I bring all wellness approaches together for my clients. There’s no need to see three or four different wellness professionals when you can get the whole wellness and fitness package with one expert who is experienced in health, nutrition, fitness, yoga, meditation, and mindfulness.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
South Florida is an excellent place for a Wellness business. Most people want to lead a healthy lifestyle and even doctors are getting on board the wellness “bus”. For those starting out, South Florida is ideal since most of us spend time outdoors by our beautiful beaches and parks and are interested in fitness. Additionally, over the past 10 years so many Farmer’s Markets have opened up which is another sign that residents are into healthy living.
