La Holista Ltd. is a holistic health company founded by health coach and yoga teacher Chiara Squinzi. The company, based in Ho Chi Minh, provides personal health coaching, healthy nutrition, corporate wellness and corporate consulting services.
The company offers one-on-one health coaching programs, cooking classes, schools programs, public talks on health and wellness, shopping guidance, designs menus and creates drinks and food recipes for Food & Beverage establishments and sells homemade vegan products.
In regard to Health Coaching, Chiara Squinzi practices a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that she focuses on healthy whole simple foods and looks at how all other areas of the client’s life are connected. Stress, relationships, sleep or low energy and exercising are all as important as the food he or she ingests. During the health coaching programs they will set appropriate wellness goals and work together to achieve them for a more fulfilling and happy life.
To corporates, Chiara offers Wellness Days or Wellness Programs focused on improving the health and lifestyle behaviours of employees and leaders WITHIN the company. She achieves incredible results by teaching them how to eat and drink healthily during working hours, how to increase physical activity, how to stop smoking and how to reduce stress, with the ultimate goal being to increase company’s productivity and employees’ health and happiness.
To schools, and especially international schools, Chiara provides healthy nut-free treats, running classes that are fun and innovative and engaging kids to experiment (and love) healthy plant-based foods. The main goal for these classes is to give real dietary guidelines to kids so that they can let go of the obsolete USDA food pyramid and food conception in which meat, dairy and sugar are the main elements of each meal. In addition, she stresses the importance of spreading the message within the family so that health benefits can reach siblings and parents too.
To F&B establishment, Chiara offers menu design and chefs/cooks training to create delicious and inexpensive healthy juices, smoothies, sweets and other snacks, all low in calories and rich in taste.
