Kate Strakosch is a nourishment coach who believes in the inner and outer connection of wellness and radiance. She is the owner and founder of Sunshine Kate’s wellness center, with two locations in Wanamassa and Red Bank, NJ.
She has a degree in whole-foods based nutrition from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. Upon graduating, she expanded her education by becoming an esthetician to understand the relationship between skin health and nutrition.
Katie is also a certified yoga instructor. She has also completed her children’s yoga training through Karma Kids Yoga in NYC, as well as “Yoga in the Preschool Classroom” and “Yoga for the Special Child” to work with children with special needs.
Kate has studied under Sierra Bender, founder of Goddess to the Core, and is an Inside Out Workout Instructor. This is part of the Sierra Bender Empowerment Method. This method empowers women to face their fears, awaken their spirit and redefine what it means to thrive in the world. It's an opportunity to stop, look, listen and feel what is going on spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically in the body. It is part physical workout, part yoga practice, part spiritual reflection. It is designed to give you tools to challenge, work, heal and treat your body.
She worked as a nutritionist at Sophia Health Institute in Woodinville, WA which is one the nation’s leading health clinics focused on chronic illness.
She also spent time in Aspen, CO where she worked as a whole body detox educator facilitating programs with sauna therapy, colon hydrotherapy and nutritional support.
After moving back to New Jersey in 2008, Sunshine Kate’s came to fruition through leading cooking classes for both adults and children, as well as providing gluten free goodies for local juice bars and coffee shops.
Kate’s work deepened into understanding women’s health as she worked through her own hormonal distress with PCOS. This led her to dive into offering womb wellness services in her practice. The services offered under this realm allow women to heal, restore and nourish their wombs on physical and emotional levels.
Kate focuses on nourishment through connecting nutrition, movement, self-care and creativity.
A secret about Kate… After graduating high school, she wanted to become a travel agent before studying nutrition. Kate’s curiosity and passion of travel and food have led her to different parts of the world to experience and explore including Morocco, Spain, Bali, Greece, Italy, Australia, Iceland as well as extensively through the United States.
She leads annual women’s wellness retreats in Italy, Bali and Wyoming. These are weeks dedicated to divine self-care through journeys that support women awakening their senses and their spirits. These are magical journeys full of yoga, inspiration and nature..
