My name is Kathy Grace, I am a Naturopath, Nutritionist, Ayurvedic Consultant, Doula and Yoga Teacher (Level 3) with over 30 years in the health industry. I specialise in working with women, I first started my business as ‘Conception Health’ which later became ‘Gracefully Fit Yoga’ in Oatley.
I grew up with a ‘hippie’ mum, who used to feed me lecithin, raw egg and molasses (plus more) drinks for breakfast. I believe in keeping your feet on the ground while allowing your body and mind to explore! it was the 90’s when I graduated from College as a Naturopath, later doing my Bachelor in Health Science. I also completed for first yoga teacher training and started along my own path of health. Initially working in Health Food stores, then Nutrition companies and finally running my own business.
Growing up with a ‘hippie’ mum i learnt to use food, herbs and vitamins over orthodox medicine (when possible) and she instilled a positive view point of the world around me. I grew up dancing, playing sport and having fun. Later in life, my fathers influence was more obvious with my dedication to working hard and providing excellent customer service by truely caring about the people you deal with and going the extra mile – he always did!
After years of practice as both a Naturopath and Yoga practitioner my focus changed on how I worked with people and which tools I used, now focusing more on Ayurveda and Yoga to help people align with their own true nature and to identify what is going to work for them, personally!
Having worked in the corporate sector for many years, I founded Conception Health, a practice focused on women (fertility and pregnancy) in 2009 and Gracefully Fit Yoga in 2010. When i sold this business in 2018 i moved to just working under my name – Kathy Grace
Kathy currently Consults at Vitalise Wellness and is involved in various Yoga Teacher Training & Mentoring Programs within Australia.
My love and passion is for working with women, at all stages. For more than 10yrs I have worked with women trying to conceive, pregnant and/or postnatal. I am constantly fascinated and in awe of the womens body and what it does during pregnancy. I have worked with 1000s of women during pregnancy and each women has taught me something about their individual journey!
