Christine Smith

In 2013 I established SantePlus Coaching and Yoga with the vision and passion to inspire people to believe in themselves and move forward with confidence for a happier and healthier life.

My mantra: Re-establishing a life balance.

“Happiness [and wellbeing are] not a matter of intensity but a balance, order, rhythm and harmony”. Thomas Merton

Originally from France, I followed my Australian husband to Western Australia in the late 1980's and in South East Asia for more than 10 years. My personal experiences in migrating to Australia and living in Asian countries, while trying to establish myself professionally and becoming a mother were very challenging at times. I often struggled to re-establish my own life balance and my sense of wellbeing.

As a French Infirmiere (Registered Nurse) with a passion towards re-establishing better health, I wanted to understand the positive and negative impact of society and the environment on people’s health and wellbeing. This gave impetus to my studies and research in health, sociology, anthropology and communication.

After working for 25 years in various health settings and teaching across four WA universities, I decided to break free. Now operating independently as a professional coach and yoga instructor I embrace all my skills and follow my passion to assist individuals re-establish their ultimate life balance and wellbeing.
