My name is Anya Benoit. I started my journey in the wellness and health field back in 2014 as a Dietitian and Nutritionist after completing 4 years of studies and placements in Melbourne Australia. I also got certified as a Sports Nutritionist the next year.
A few years later, I needed change in my professional and personal life and this is when I found yoga or maybe I should say - Yoga found me!
In 2018, I went to India and completed the 200-hour teacher certification to be able to teach yoga and it was definitely one of the best decisions for my work.
I am a Dietitian and Sports Nutritionist but above all I am a big fan of food.
I have studied in Australia for 4 years, with 3 semesters of practice under supervision before coming back to Mauritius in 2015. Since then, I have opened my private practice to share my nutrition knowledge with all of you.
You can find me on local Radio, R1, for “Le Club du Midi” show with Miguel Hermelin on Mondays. I have also collaborated on a few articles in the local newspapers and magazines.
I work with various companies organising nutrition activities for their employees and I help with the development of healthier food products.
Being a Dietitian and Nutritionist, people assume I have always been thin and I always had the perfect diet. You couldn’t be further from the truth, I have struggled with food for a very long time.
In 2018, I got certified as a Yoga Instructor (200-hour RYT). From then I have started offering yoga classes as a complementary therapy to help people lead a healthier lifestyle, allowing them to release stress and physical tension.
