Hi I’m Katherine, I am a big plant and nature nerd and I run the blog TheGreenYogini.com

It is my passion to share with you the power of plants, simple and natural living and healthy tips to help you live a simpler and healthier life.

Sometimes we just know that when it comes to our health we are not making the best choices…

But it can all seem so overwhelming when trying to make the transition to a healthier lifestyle.

I have discovered the secret is small baby steps.

Instead of trying to radically change your life, stop eating the foods you may have been eating for years… instead just slowly add into your life new healthier habits.

And that is why I have created this blog, to share with you simple healthy habits you can slowly add into your life and over time you will find the unhealthy habits simply fall away.

Your Health Is Your Greatest Wealth


Twelve years ago I was sitting in a detox center my life crashing down around me. I had pushed just about every person who loved me out of my life and slammed the door.

Physically I was very sick – I had been hospitalized 6 months earlier when I was peeing blood and in the worst pain imaginable, but still I drank. The whites of my eyes were a constant yellow and I was smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day. I was living in complete fear, I was so afraid and I felt so alone.

As I sat there in that detox center, shaking because of withdrawals from alcohol, a miracle happened. I made a new choice. I knew I had to do something different or I would die. I chose to live and I chose to get sober one day at a time. Little did I know, my journey to better health began that day. By the Grace of God, I stepped out of the darkness and into the light. One small step at a time I got my health back.

This journey is not about perfection, but making better choices one day at a time. ANYONE can start this journey. It does not matter how unhealthy or unhappy you may be, it starts with taking one simple step in the direction of better health. I promise if I can do this so can YOU!

In Nature Nothing Is Rushed, Yet All Is Accomplished


I’m an earthy person. I could dig all day in the dirt, rain or shine, I love to garden! That’s probably why I love essential oils so much!

I’m a bit of an introvert and prefer books and a cup of warm tea then going out on the town (9pm is definitely my bedtime :-)).

I have two awesome boys who have educated my all about Legos, football and Pokémon! I am married to a my soulmate who inspired me to follow my passion and create the life I love!
