INSIDE/OUT: Tell us about your weekly wellness routines and rituals.
KARLA DASCAL: My sacred morning ritual is what sets the tone for my day and week. It begins with a four to six mile walk, outside and with intention. There is nothing more grounding than being in nature.

After the walk, as directed by the Medical Medium, I drink 16 ounces of celery juice on an empty stomach. The benefits of celery juice are endless. Celery juice is an incredible anti-inflammatory, balances your body’s pH, and supports natural energy and immunity.

Next, I make an adaptogenic super-smoothie which consists of an array of superfoods, healthy fats, mushrooms, and adaptogens. Following an 80% plant-centric diet keeps my energy high throughout the week.

 
 

Your favorite trainer, class or method.
Nothing beats moving in nature. My personal trainer, Richard Love, also believes in the power of nature so we always perform our sessions outside. He is all about exiting your comfort zone and sometimes I need that push to get to the next level, or achieve specific goals

My other favorite practice is the ancient technology of Kundalini yoga taught by Guru Jagat. Kundalini is about awakening and clearing the subconscious mind, tapping into your infinite consciousness, and being fully present.
