THE PLACE to find Vancouver’s Top Wellness Experts
Plug into the new, growing network of people interested in wellness in Vancouver
From learning to cook in his grandmother’s kitchen to VIP Chef and Guest Speaker at a United Nations conference, Preet Marwaha’s life has been defined by food. He was not to know how much until struck with a life-threatening illness at 18. Then, food became the path back to health and his life’s mission: to create a paradigm shift in how people live, starting with food and the systems that produce it. Today, he is an in-demand nutrition and food authority, locally and globally.
Preet developed curriculums for the “Nutrition and the Environment” and “Holistic Food Prep” programs at Institute of Holistic Nutrition (IHN) in Vancouver, where he taught for three years. Preet has also been instrumental in creating and mentoring sport nutrition programs for Douglas College’s Women’s Volleyball Team and Richmond Olympic Oval’s Elite Junior Girls Volleyball Team.
As a result of Preet’s depth of knowledge and his consultation with global experts in the fields of food, nutrition, physiology, anatomy, molecular science, and understanding the human mind, in 2010 he was invited to speak at a United Nations international conference in Bangkok, where he was also the Chef for their VIP night. This began an ongoing global association with organizations including: United Nations Environment Programme, World Wellness Project,and the Safe Planet Campaign.
Grounded in an uncompromising belief that we need to reconnect differently with our food and the systems that produce it, Preet is a powerful, optimistic beacon of light in a world seeking answers about how our food choices impact our personal health and the planet’s well-being. With compassion and humour, he lives the principles he teaches. Preet has witnessed, over and over again, the extraordinary healing power of whole food that comes from bio-dynamic, organic, ethical, and sustainable systems.

What’s the Vancouver Wellness Meetup??
The Vancouver Wellness Meetup was founded by myself (Brent) and my girlfriend (Val) in the Fall of 2014 as a way to bring together Vancouver’s Top Wellness Experts and have them share their stories and ideas at an affordable price anyone could afford ($10).
We host fun, engaging events on the 4th Thursday of every month at our amazing spot at the Empower Health Clinic on Commercial Drive (it has palm trees!!).
See you there!!
