Hi! I’m Anna Shalray. 

   I’m a loss and rainbow mom, partnering with women to optimize hormone health, brave the challenges of medically and/or emotionally complex pregnancies, and create a nourished postpartum season

As your coach, and confidant - my sole focus is to care for you and help you care for yourself, on this intense rollercoaster ride.

From balancing hormones and nurturing fertility, to creating a nourished pregnancy and postpartum, 

I’m here to share resources, strategy and most importantly support!

Using the tools of my training as a Certified Holistic Health Coach and Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200hr), pre/postnatal, I’ll walk with you through the journey of supporting your hormonal health while creating a lifestyle you love. 

From mindset to meal time…

From hormonal imbalance to early motherhood... 

I’m here to help you find ease.

If this sounds like just what you’ve been longing for, click here to learn more about how we can work together.  

We all want to feel in control of our health...

That’s why hormonal imbalances and infertility struggles are so hard. They challenge us to the core, steal our stability, and leave us feeling defeated.

Whether your wading through the physical symptoms (hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, digestive issues, hair loss, muddled thinking, fatigue, pelvic pain, anovulatory cycles, or amenorrhea),

OR the emotional weight of searching for answers and relief;

You don’t have to do this alone!

I’m here for you, because I’ve been there!

I’ve experienced the frustration, anger, and confusion of hormonal health struggles, and how they ripple out into every area of daily life.

Discomfort and pain, limit concentration, making completing everyday tasks a challenge.
It can suck all the fun and romance out of your relationships, leaving you feeling isolated, stuck in an emotional prison, as hormones take over your life.

This pain, stress, and disconnect can make achieving hormonal balance, conception, pregnancy, and a nourished postpartum even more challenging.

Wondering if this support is for you?

My story:

        A few years ago, I was living in Los Angeles and found myself stuck in the daily grind. I was working 40-70 hours a week as a nanny, and although I loved the little ones, I was overwhelmed, and completely stressed out. I became engaged, and realized how uncomfortable I was in my own skin. My now husband traveled for work and we spent the majority of our engagement apart. This give me the time and space to really take a look at myself. I began to say yes to me, started to create some boundaries around work/home life, started incorporating more empowering movement like yoga and hiking, and spent time with friends and loved ones.

      As the daughter of a home economics teacher (who cooked everything with a stick of butter and a can of cream of something) and a pastry chef father, I quickly realized that eating this way was no longer working for me. I started making small shifts around food, adding in more plant based, unprocessed foods. In just a couple months I lost 25 lbs and gained so much more. More energy. More excitement. More curiosity. What had I done to feel this good, and how could I help other women feel this same sense of empowerment?

      That is what led me to study Holistic Health and Nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. While at IIN, I studied over 100 dietary theories, and lifestyle management techniques, from the world's top health and wellness experts. My passion for yoga, and a desire to deepen my personal practice, also led me to obtain my Yoga Alliance RYT-200hr.  Bringing this knowledge along with my own wellness journey has enabled my work with my clients to completely transform lives! We have worked together on a range goals from weight loss, stress reduction, productivity, and menu planning to establishing sustainable self-care practices, child and family enrichment, and re-balancing hormones... A few of my clients have even brought home happy, healthy babies after infertility issues and loss, which is so dear to my heart.

        My husband and I lost our first child, Audrianna, a couple hours after her birth. The outpouring of love, and support, that we received after loss, and the depth of love and sense purpose I uncovered, is what motivates my journey and practice. 

Her presence in my life has challenged me, unearthed me, and inspired me to use this gift of life, and to use all the love I have within me, as I support other women on their journey's.

My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, preventive health, lifestyle management techniques,pre/postnatal yoga and mindfulness. Drawing on these skills I work with clients to help them make simple lifestyle shifts, that produce real and lasting results.

My Approach:

      My desire is to make your life easier and  empower your management of your well-being, through customized one on one support. I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does your environment feel safe? Is stress at work or in your relationship impact your food life? Does lack of sleep, pain, or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole. 

     Then, we begin to create the small manageable shifts that enable lasting change. Little by little, these daily intentional pivots will empower you to find balance while creating a lifestyle you love.

 I’m here to help lighten the load, and keep you moving forward in a way that feels good for you, and fits flexibly into your hectic schedule. 

Our work together offers you the support you need to stay aligned with your purpose, motivated on the tough days, and calm on the crazy ones, so that you have the freedom to make an impact, be present, and build a beautiful future for yourself and your family!

     I practice the theory of  bio-individuality, that there is no "one size fits all," because you are a unique, bold, beautiful soul. No singular dietary theory (vegan, paleo, vegetarian, grain/dairy/gluten free, ketogenic, etc)  or lifestyle practice, is perfect for every individual. 

      My clients have found great success in areas such as: family growth, gut health, finding inspiration, clarity, and direction for daily life; achieving body confidence and weight loss; reducing food cravings, and improving food routines; increasing sleep, maximizing energy, increasing productivity, heightening a sense of relaxation, joy, and peace with in themselves and their households.  

Client Love:

Lauren's Journey: "The sessions were really eye opening, and really showed me ways to focus on the little things in life that I could make changes instead of having to change everything about everything I do every single day... I have a better outlook when I Iook at food. I do have a huge list of recipes... I would definitely put this to women who work full-time, moms that have full time jobs outside the house that need some sort of way to reduce their stress through time management, and changing the little things in your life..."

Shannon’s Journey: “I was living on pizza and cereal... I wanted to feel better, and healthier and have more energy, and feel better about myself... I felt like you understood where I was coming from and the struggles that I had and the reason behind why I was eating the way I was out of convenience and habit Then you didn't try to revamp everything I ever ate...it was nice that I could slowly work towards the changes I wanted to make without doing anything drastic that I would have abandoned. .... Total revamp of how I look at life, and how I look at food, and where I find my peace and joy. I lost 51 pounds. I sleep better. I have more energy. My joints don't hurt. (I would recommend this program to) people who are stuck.... anyone is struggling with how to do enough nutritionally, and the right portions, and how to do it in day to day life. I appreciate you helping to get me where I am healthy and happy again!"

Christina's Journey: "I was not really knowing what direction to go. I was hoping to find different ways to exercise, and be encouraged... to have a mentor and someone to have my back, and check on the diet I was eating, and give me suggestions as to different ways to modify, and different ideas of how to go about getting my meal planning together. I really had a great time! You are so nice and comfortable. I felt an immediate friendship with you. I have found a better way to motivate myself... the best ways to get my nutrition. I think this is for everybody, from healthy people..to the beginner..to the middle: who know what to do, but need the kick to do it! Your support, and your kindness, and the way you were willing to find answers to my questions, or even things I hadn't thought of... I just really recommend you to anyone!"
