Erica Profile


Nutrition Expert

Erica Vtoraja
BSc (Hons) Human Nutrition

Erica holds a BSc (Hons) in Human Nutrition from The University of Westminster and a Certificate in holistic health mentorship from Health Creation founder Dr Rosy Daniel, an expert who specialises in Integrative Healthcare. 


Her journey to becoming a nutritionist started 20 years ago and was sparked by her incredible 3-stone weight loss without following any specific diet. She became fascinated by all aspects of nutrition: how it affects our appetite, satiety, energy level, mood, and helps combat a range of illnesses and diseases. 

After graduation, Erica started her professional life in healthcare/pharmacy business managing prescription medicine and providing health and wellbeing/nutrition advice to patients, ran workshops and wrote articles about nutrition for online publications. 


Erica does not believe in diets, as dieting, by definition, is a temporary food plan, it will not work in the long term and can cause nothing but confusion and frustration. She believes that the only way to lose weight, keep it off and stay healthy is to transform our relationship with food. 


The word diet comes from Greek diaita which means “a way of living or lifestyle”, so putting weight loss at the centre of changing health is like fighting a losing battle. 


She truly believes that healthy eating is about helping a person to find his/her own unique way of getting back in touch with natural body signals. It is about going back to basics and eating simple, fresh, real, colourful and varied foods, mainly based on fresh vegetables and fruit, healthy fats and proteins.


Based on her over decade long experience in the healthcare industry, Erica became confident that many health and dietary problems have got psychological and psychosomatic underlying issues. She diligently studied her patients' cases and accumulated deep knowledge in the field. Hence, her approach to health is holistic."My vocation is to inspire and help people to discover what is best for them” is Erica's life motto.

Ameet's profile


Postural Alignment Specialist

Ameet Bhakta

BSc. DipHE, Postural Alignment Specialist

Ameet qualified as Postural Alignment Specialist from the Egoscue Institute. In his own words:

“I’ve found that most people want to improve their posture because they’re either in pain, they’re unhappy

with how they look, or they want to keep their bodies working well as they age - or sometimes all three!"

As a Postural Alignment Specialist, Ameet thinks that the biggest mistake people make when trying to improve their posture is believing that they have to learn how to sit, stand and walk correctly. They think it’s all about consciously trying to force their body into a better position. Ameet says that his clients are often surprised when he tells them that this is absolutely not what having good posture is about.

A much better approach is to improve the balance of our muscles from left to right, and from front to back, because it’s the balance of these muscles that determines our body's alignment.


Ameet gives his clients gentle posture correction exercises to do daily, which stretch and strengthen certain parts of the body and get his clients into better alignment without even having to think about it. His aim is to help his clients to end their current pain, feel more confident about the way they look, and reduce their risk of future pain and injuries.


Postural Alignment Specialist

Caroline Clarke

Postural Alignment Specialist

Postural alignment has been a passion of Caroline’s since competing for many years in the equestrian world, giving her an amazing eye for irregularities in the human body as well as her four-legged friends. She uses gentle corrective exercises to bring the body back into the human blueprint. 

Having trained with the Egoscue Method nearly ten years ago, Caroline has been working with clients all over the world running ten classes a week online as well as one-to-one classes in Devon, UK.

As a Postural Alignment Specialist, Caroline reveals that the body works as a unit and has the most amazing ability to heal itself given the right conditions. Caroline adds however, that she can only advise her clients what exercises to do – the hard work is down to them and her bespoke exercise routine needs to become habit forming. The most remarkable factor, even after the initial assessment, is that her clients feel the difference in their bodies immediately. Part of the journey for both Caroline and her clients is to capture before and after photos, thereby highlighting what needs to improve with their posture – seeing a client walk and their gait is such an important part of the process. After a few exercises, the difference becomes abundantly clear.

Caroline believes a lightness and humour should be part of the Postural Alignment experience and is dedicated to formulating assessments that are both enjoyable and inspirational to all.
