Anamaria Pontes, MS, RD, CDN Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Ayurveda Therapist
For over five years she worked as a Registered Dietitian in a long-term health care facility in the South Bronx. Working with patients with a range of medical conditions, she became aware how essential good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle are to chronic disease prevention. In addition to her abundant training in clinical nutrition, anatomy and physiology, biology and human metabolism, Anamaria has long had her own vibrant physical wellness practice. She practiced Capoeira and has been practicing yoga for over a decade. These physical arts have deepened her own sense of holistic wellbeing. Through her personal experiences and counseling practice she realized that each individual, ultimately, is responsible for their own health. Developing wholesome daily habits is essential for ongoing wellness. She also appreciated how combining nutritious eating and exercise prevents disease and effects general flourishing. With that in mind she wanted to initiate nutrition counseling with a holistic emphasis, integrating nutrition, fitness and wellness.

To further that end, Anamaria studied Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy in a Gurukula style in Tamilnadu, India. After seven months immersed in these practices, she became an Ayurveda therapist and a certified yoga teacher. She teaches both ashtanga and therapeutic hatha yoga, to suit her students’ needs.

In order to share and integrate her expertise, she has founded Nutritioness, which will empower and guide you to develop a sound and nurturing relationship with food and physical activity in order to achieve optimal health.

Nutritioness integrates the ancient knowledge of Ayurveda, Western Medical Nutritional Therapy, and fitness. Her counseling guides individuals to restore and maintain vitality and supports longevity. Her services include private consultations, supermarket tours, cooking classes, cleansing programs and therapeutic yoga.
