Get to know Georgina, the beauty and the brains behind Vitalita Yoga. Why did you become a Yoga teacher? I first rolled out my mat in 2004 but, entranced by London’s hedonistic lifestyle and climbing the career ladder, my practice was sporadic. Diagnosed with anxiety and depression in 2011 after mistaking a panic attack for…

Grab yourself a cuppa and get to know Vitalita Health and Fitness founder, Sam Scibilia Why did you become a PT? After nearly 20 years as an electrician working in construction, my body was slowly shutting down.

Let me set the record straight. Sam and I never set out to become vegetarian.  Our shared love of food brought us together and our most vivid memories involve growing, searching for, preparing or eating food.

My aim is to feel good MOST of the time   That may seem like a strange goal but, realistically, we’re never going to feel 100% day in, day out. I want my body to function as well as it possibly can, for as long as possible. I want to feel good, look good and have…

My left arm prickled with pins and needles, my skin felt clammy and I was struggling to breathe. I looked up from my laptop, the screen showing search results for ‘symptoms of a heart attack’. Alice looked at me with concern from across the partition. ”Are you ok?” she asked, before running in the direction…
