All three areas need to be balanced and firing simultaneously. I also want my patients to know that regardless of their genetic predisposition, they can be healthy and avoid the dreaded family history/diagnosis. Read more>>
Ola Kayal | Chef and Environmentalist
When I was in culinary school 5 years ago, I studied culinary trends and discussed the effects of food production and consumption. I studied sustainable business before that and it is a topic that is very close to my heart. I also had a class called product development where each student had 11 weeks to develop a complete ready to sell product. Mine was Plant-based ice-cream! I wanted to create ice cream that is healthy, nutrient dense and environmentally friendly. It was quite the challenge. Since, ice cream’s main ingredients are milk (dairy), sugar and eggs; the animal agriculture industry has become extremely detrimental to our health and the health of our planet, and white processed sugar is basically poison. I had to avoid using these ingredients and after a lot of trail and error I found the perfect creamy balance guilt free! Fast forward 5 years later, I was in Miami for the first time and I saw a great opportunity to bring my project to life. Nabati is redefining ice cream! Everything is made in house from scratch in Wynwood. Read more>>

Flow State Studios is a community wellness center where people can come and participate in different activities that induce a healing state of flow. In positive psychology, a flow state, also known colloquially as being in the zone, is the mental state in which a person performing some activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by the complete absorption in what one does, and a resulting transformation in one’s sense of time. Being in this state of flow allows for energetic harmonization within each individual and results in lowered levels of stress and anxiety while increasing strength, health and happiness. At Flow State we offer free yoga, breathwork, movement, and sound healing classes weekly. We also host personal training, jiu-jitsu, music, and ceramics classes. The space also includes a professional grade recording studio for musicians to create affordably. We have created a beautiful space for the community that is centered around creativity and support, and it has really grown into a family. Read more>>
