Meet Clarissa "Riss" Karunaratne

Hi! I’m Clarissa, an integrative nutrition health coach, certified nutrition coach, fitness trainer, yoga teacher and wellness advocate born and raised in LA. As an LA native, sunshine is my favorite state of being! And I wholeheartedly believe that you can radiate your most aligned self through mindful movement and daily practices that feel good to YOU.

My health and wellness journey started on my mat back in 2014 and opened up a whole world of wellness - from diving deeper into my nutrition, to finding what daily habits worked for me, to strengthening my relationships, and beyond. It is a continuous journey that has taught me movement is medicine, there is no doubt about that - but everything else that shapes your life is crucial to your well-being. 

Health is a 360 approach. Nourishment is your nutrition, movement, relationships, spirituality, financial wellness, creativity, career, routines and habits. I wanted to create a space where you feel welcomed, celebrated and empowered on your journey toward becoming. As we evolve, our wellness does too and I'm here to hold space for that.

Karunaratne is Sanskrit (the language of yoga!) for Kind - Sun. It wasn't until recently when my dad told me this, that I found a deeper love for my last name. Kindness is one of those things that just keeps on giving -- it just makes the world a brighter place. Each day I start my morning with a gratitude meditation and tune into my compassion for myself and others. This instantly brightens my mood - it's almost like creating my own sunny day!

My intention with all of my clients is to cultivate this sunshine within them so that we can go out into the world and share our unique light with those around us, making everyone shine brighter and feel happier + healthier!

When I’m not on my mat, you can find me creating fun and easy recipes, reading from my ever-growing collection of self-dev books, and catching the sunset with my extra large goldendoodle named Tuck and his little brother Barrington, @tuckthepuff on IG!
