Wellness by Roma

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino met with the Garden State’s newest business owner on the block, Roma Bajaj Kohli of Wellness by Roma!

Roma, a certified yoga teacher and fusion food enthusiast, has developed a wellness journal that guides users (specifically, time-starved moms!) on achieving a holistic lifestyle that encompasses the best mind, body and soul practices.

“I understand that time is of the essence for a lot of people, so I want to help them adapt good habits that will allow them to enjoy a peaceful and energized life,” explained Roma.

Roma knows first-hand on how embracing yoga and organic recipes can help bring about positive changes to one’s life. “I was struggling with my husband working around the clock while I was home with our two children. Being a stay-at-home home, I felt lost. My background was in fashion, but I felt trapped and wondered where my life was going. When I dived full-force into this lifestyle, a part of me was healed.

What Roma couldn’t have predicted was that her new mindset help bring her family closer together. On weekends, the family practices yoga together in their family room and enjoys a healthy meal afterwards. Roma looks forward to these moments more than anything in the world.

Kirk Charles on Staying Healthy

Certified personal trainer Kirk Charles sat with Joanna Gagis on “A Life & Living Moment” to offer tips and tools to stay healthy.

“I believe we should all be eating predominantly plant food,” Charles says. The type of plant food best for you is determined by what part of the world you’re from.  “The best ratio for you,” Charles concludes, “would be 90-95% plant and maybe 5% meat products.”

Kirk Charles is a Master Trainer at the New York Sports Club. He is also the author of “Live in the Power Zone” and has written more than 50 nationally published articles. For more than ten years, he has given presentations on enhancing personal performance and business development.
