My name is Lisa Manzo and I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (R.H.N), Personal Trainer (PTS), Author of the book Healthy is Sexy, Wellness Blogger and the Founder of PurEnergy Wellness Lofts in Toronto. Β Apart from my business titles, I am a wife and a new mom. Β All of these titles are wonderful, but serve a specific purpose: they give me the ability to fulfill a dream. Β My mission statement – if you will – is to bring each and every person I encounter a positive and lasting experience. Β I’m motivated and passionate about everything I do; helping others to live a healthy and happy life is my life mission. Β 

I believe that the key to a happy, healthy, holistic life is education and I am extremely excited to be part of a community that thrives on helping one another achieve longevity, balance and happiness. Β Yoso is a brand I truly identify with and have a passion for, as well as support as a consumer.
