Welcome to Vitality!

Take a look around, grab a cup of matcha and make yourself at home.

“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul are open”

I’m Bianca MacLachlan and it’s this belief that has inspired (called) me to build this health and wellness sanctuary. I’m qualified in nutrition, holistic health coaching, yoga, personal training and mindfulness. I’m a plant-based vitality maker, carrying the torch for wholefoods, keeping things natural and taking control of your health (and your life!) in the most courageous way possible.

I want this life to be the most amazing, soul-tingling, inspiring, wondrous journey that it can possibly be. And at the centre of this?

Health! Of your body, your mind, your heart, your soul.

Your health is the vehicle that allows you to live the life you were meant for!
And I believe that you have the power to create that health for yourself. You can choose to nourish yourself through the food you eat, the way you move your body, through your thoughts and actions, the relationships you have, and how you live your life each and every day.
When you become open to this power that you have then there are no limitations.
There are no diets, no restrictions, no hunger. There’s no confusion, no frustration, and no self-doubt.

How do I know this? Because I used to be very, very lost.

I spent the decade of my twenties drinking, smoking, partying, taking drugs, and trying to have the most fun I could possibly have. And it was great while I was wasted, I could do anything, say anything, be anything, and all my inhibitions, shyness and insecurities would disappear.

But then I’d wake up the next day. Hangovers, panic attacks and the overarching feeling that things weren’t quite right would settle down on me again. So to get rid of that feeling I’d just get up and do it all again.

Growing up I was shy. I was crap at sports, a total bookworm, good at schoolwork, and kept myself to myself. I found it hard to open up to people, was very easily influenced, and didn’t have much faith in myself or my opinions. I found myself copying other people all the time – their clothes, music tastes, lingo. I was super introverted and it made me uncomfortable all the time.

But then I discovered parties. All of a sudden I was drunk and high, living the life of an extrovert – people liked me and I felt accepted. I was so distracted I no longer noticed the awkwardness I’d felt since childhood of not knowing or understanding the person I was. So there I stayed, with a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other, until my thirties. I thought I was happy. I thought I was living the kind of life that other people would be envious of (as if that was important!).

When I look back now I realise just how superficial it all was. I’d very cleverly built a big wall around myself so I couldn’t see the reality of my situation. I had no idea who I was, what I was doing or where I was going.

Then in my early thirties, I had a wake-up call. A little voice inside started questioning the life I was leading, and that voice got louder and louder until I couldn’t ignore it anymore. It was time to change. And I realised the only thing holding me back from living the life I truly desired, with all my heart, was me.

For years I had been searching for happiness in tBianca sidebarhings that gave me a fake high. But all I was doing was disguising my true self, because I was too scared to show her to the world for fear of not being accepted.

So I made the decision to not only get to know her, but to love her, nurture her, and introduce her to the world. And this is when my life truly began.

First it was my diet – hello veganism, whole foods and eating as nature intended. I fell in love with cooking, ditched the processed food and felt better than I could ever remember feeling. I started researching food and health and wellness and all those words that were drawing me in. I studied at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, reading everything I could find, and I felt like I was waking up for the first time in my life.

The partying was turned down and the healthy living was turned up. I quit drinking, I quit smoking – a truly liberating experience. I finally realised I didn’t need to be anyone else, being me was enough. My intuition came alive. My soul was healing, the walls were crumbling and I finally gave myself permission to feel what I really wanted to feel.

These days, my life is so incredibly different and better than anything that came before it, and I know in my soul that helping and guiding others on their own healing journey is my true purpose in this life.

A few more little insights about me:

 My friends call me B (and you can too!)

 I’m a Kiwi living in Australia. I currently call Mandurah home, having also lived in Melbourne, Brisbane, Karratha, Auckland, London and Dublin. So it’s no surprise that…

 I love love love travelling. The world is a beautiful, mysterious, awe-inspiring place and I want to see it all! I love this quote by St Augustine – “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” It’s my goal to be as well read as possible!

✶ Speaking of books, I’m also obsessed with reading. My bedside table is literally piled with half-read books.

 Being in nature is my soul medicine. I grew up under a mountain in New Zealand and lakes, forests, rivers and beaches weren’t far away. I’ll take trees over concrete jungles any day!

 I’m happily married to the man I was meant to walk this world with, Morgan. How I got to be so lucky I will never know – he taught me how to love, be loved, and love myself.

 I’m the proud mama of a pug called Taane (which means ‘boy’ in Máori), plus our adopted lab Chaser, and they are the light of my life.

 I brew my own kombucha, make green juices, love strong female vocalists, and spend a lot of time making – and eating – raw vegan desserts. Dark chocolate?? Yes please!!

 I’m a yoga junkie it’s changed me in so many ways and has become an integral part of who I am. I became a yoga teacher in 2014, furthered my training in India in 2016, and will continue to learn always.

 I love exercise and moving my body – the gym, cycling, running. I love seeing what my body is capable of.

 My qualifications include a Certification in Health Coaching, Advanced Certificate in Nutrition and Health, Certificate in Nutrition and Diet, 500hr Yoga Alliance registered Yoga Teacher, Cert III and Cert IV in Fitness, certified Personal Trainer, boxing instructor and Mindfulness Meditation coach. Phew! (I love studying – I believe when we stop learning, we stop growing.)

I believe happiness is a choice and I choose it every day.
