New for 2022, a two part wellbeing workshop for institutions looking to support physical, mental and emotional health by teaching efficient self-care techniques that support wellbeing from the inside out.
We are experienced in sharing self-care practises with groups, going further than simple mindfulness, to improve energy levels, focus, productivity, mood, creativity and problem solving - working together to really create a firm foundation of the mindset for efficient and effective team working as well as an enthusiastic workplace culture.
Each participant will come away from our talks and demonstrations with the tools to support themselves and importantly, feeling empowered and motivated to use these tools successfully.
Meet the Team
Dr Samantha Wellappili
MBChB, MRCGP, DipION
A GP with a specialist interest in Lifestyle Medicine, Samantha has undertaken additional post-graduate studies in Nutritional therapy, Yoga therapy and is a coach and meditation teacher.
She is an author and speaker and is passionate about teaching methods that bring balance back into the physical, mental and emotional levels so that each one of us can reach our deeper potential, find purpose and resilience and be more productive to enjoy a harmonious work and home life.
Samantha recognised a personal, deep need for self-care as a daily practise early on in her demanding career and took a sabbatical to explore ancient methods in India and Thailand for balance in the body and mind. This ancient wisdom has stood the test of time and lays a foundation for the modern evidence-based methods we know today. Using a combination of these schools of thought, she has spent time mentoring junior medical colleagues and peers providing the support needed to create a nourishing foundation of self-care to inspire greater focus, motivation and creativity for a long and fruitful career.
Samantha is also Lifestyle Medicine Lead for
Boots Online Doctor.
Starna is a Health and Wellness Coach specialising in gut health. It is her passion to help people heal naturally through diet and lifestyle modifications.
After many years of suffering from anxiety combined with ongoing digestive issues. Starna went on her own healing journey after trying and testing various modalities to fix these issues but nothing worked until she discovered detoxification and healing her gut. This ultimately changed her life which led to her studying functional nutrition so she could help and inspire others to do the same.
I truly believe that everyone can heal and fully thrive if we invest in ourselves, you do not need to suffer. I have worked with many clients over the years to help them with their gut health and I specifically created a six-week programme for women which incorporates six key modules that helped me to get to that place of optimal health where I feel better than ever. My philosophy is all about cultivating more joy and planting new seeds for growth and wholeness as opposed to seeing ourselves as broken. When we embody this attitude, the seeds will blossom, and the weeds will naturally die. I have nothing but compassion for my clients as I have healed, and you can too!
Furthermore, Starna is a Brand Ambassador for Oxy8 Wellness.
