Meet The Healthy Livin Travelers
Hey Friends, Thanks for joining us!
We’re John and Ally, the creators of The Healthy Livin Travelers, both certified yoga instructors, and health coaches, currently traveling between our 9-5’s.
We started The Healthy Livin Travelers blog in 2019 with the intention of sharing wellness guidance to people who may have limitations, and have been told they can’t travel, in hopes of giving them some foundation and courage to follow their dreams. However, our intentions have evolved, as have we, and though this is still a big part of our purpose we also want to share the connection between travel and holistic health; in that travel is holistic health, along with how to travel minimally and mindfully, how to break out of your comfort zone, and how to be more connected!
Timeline… Where it started…
John had an autoimmune disease that we often felt reserved us from pursuing our dreams of traveling. From seeing doctor after doctor with no reassurance, no guidance whatsoever, and being told he’d never travel far from home.
So, we purchased a 39′ camper, restored it, and lived in it while we built our home to lay down some roots.
After selling our camper and moving into our newly built home, we began looking into a more holistic approach to living. We started with numerous diets until we found what worked best for us. This then led us to learn more about where our food is sourced, and allowed us to build a community with our local farmers, and learn more about horticulture and how to be more sustainable at our homestead. Food was just the beginning to a fulfilling and connected lifestyle!
We are continuing to learn how to limit our ecological footprint, and how to feel more connected to people, places, and food.
Are you ready to join us?
Hey, I’m Ally!
A Yoga Instructor and Wellness Coach, with a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Sustainability and Animal Science. I have always had a passion for animals (& tacos) and always pictured myself creating a perfect little homestead in NY with my dream hobby farm.
I grew up in Central NY, in this tiny little town, living life on a dairy farm, and attending an agricultural college.
In 2013, I met John, who later, introduced me to hiking, traveling, and backpacking, and a whole new world opened up to me! My passions have now broadened to traveling, wildlife conservation, and health and wellness! We since then built our dream home, and I started working on my hobby farm with chickens, ducks, gardening, and everything else that comes with homesteading!
Since then, we’ve started traveling as much as we can between our 9-5’s, from different parts of the United States to Europe, Asia, and so on!
I have come to find that this 9-5 lifestyle isn’t the only thing to life, and my plans are to find more ways to travel the world, live sustainably, and love my everyday life!
