About our guest, Ilana Kosakiewicz:

Ilana Kosakiewicz one of Australia’s leading kinesiologists, energy coaches, and yoga and meditation teachers. She is a wholefood lover, an entrepreneur with a past life spent working in the corporate world as a CPA accountant.

Ilana’s own health journey with chronic fatigue and auto-immune disease taught her that slowing down, finding moments of stillness, living in the now, and listening to your body’s inner wisdom and intuition are not just important – they are essential.

Ilana is passionate about teaching women to live in alignment with their innate cyclical energy, menstrual cycle, and the moon. She helps women shift their energy and take back their inner power and self-care rights by making themselves the number one priority. 

Ilana also works with children (& some men) to assist in shifting their essence, energy, and zest so they can live authentic, content, and happy lives.

Originally from Gippsland Australia, Ilana now lives in Bayside Melbourne and spends her days with her clients, teaching yoga and meditation, writing, dancing, cooking in her kitchen, and spending as much time at the beach as she can.
