Hi, I am Cassandra Hope, a registered holistic nutritionist (RHN), certified life coach, and certified personal trainer, based out of Leslieville, Toronto. I am a co-founder of The IBS Academy, the founder of Healthstyle by Cassandra Hope, as well as a co-host on Alive’s TV show ‘Alive + Fit’.
I’ve been fortunate to have been featured on The Marilyn Denis Show, The Social and ETalk as a guest expert where I talked about fitness, wellness and all things healthy and good!
My dedication to my clients and my passion to help stems from my own battle with disease, depression and anxiety, physical injury as well as battling an eating disorder.
Having such an array of physical and mental challenges over the years is what led me to become educated as a holistic practitioner, because I know from experience that healing comes from addressing all areas of life; the physical, mental and emotional. My dedication in life is to help clients create a plan that will lead them to achieve true wellness.
My journey to becoming a coach stemmed from the same place many a coaches’ and healers’ does. Pain. From living through a traumatic childhood of mental, emotional and physical abuse, I developed beliefs about myself that led to debilitating digestive issues, depression and addiction, abusive relationships as an adult woman, and eating disorders. I know first-hand the mind-body connection when it comes to pain and disease in life. Though, my resilient and loving spirit never let me give up on the possibility of healing. I realized around the age of 28 that healing was possible and that I needed to ask for help in order to climb out of my downward spiral.
Today, I am an empowered and healthy woman who is dedicated to sharing her knowledge, wisdom and healthy strategies with those who are looking for true change and vitality.
