Inspiring lives – Anita Kaiser

I am so pleased to bring you another inspiring,

alternative life interview, introducing Anita Kaiser.

Please tell our readers a little about your life, where are you currently living, what you do?

These days I live in Hamilton Ontario which is the known as the City of Waterfalls but also has quite a gritty side having come up as a Steel Town.  I’m a yoga teacher, Reiki healer, as well and Business/Life Coach.  I’m a big believer in the things that hold you back in life will also hold you back in business if you don’t clear them.  We all came to this place to live in joy and instead we so often hold ourselves in that space of not good enough.  I like to help people lessen that energy and more into a freer, happier, easier place.  In my coaching I tend to pull from all sorts of training to create this shift.  I’m also a bit of super foods pusher because I know what a difference that has made in my life and the life of my family.

How did you start home education?

We started home education because it had always felt right, we both come from ‘normal’ families and were both schooled right the way through those years, but neither of us follow ‘normal’ life now, I’ve travelled quite a lot, lived in a lot of different places and we live a pretty alternative lifestyle (some would say) I’m a herbalist, we make and sell Tipis, live in a straw bale house which we built ourselves, run pay what you want workshops on low impact living and straw bale building, grow our own veggies etc, and living these choices means we have been surrounded by like-minded people for a long time, many of whom home school, it’s been a natural progression, just something we have always known we would do, more than a conscious decision, I suppose it started from our eldest (now seven years old) starting nursery, the feeling I had was all wrong, he only went for a few hours a week, but it felt all wrong and just confirmed my feelings on him being at school five days a week all day everyday, and so homeschooling happened 😊 as life has rolled along its become reinforced that this is the right thing to do, when making and delivering the Tipis it’s given us the opportunity to travel around Europe together without the limitation of ‘terms’ we spend most of our time in Portugal at the moment at our farm where we run the pay what you want workshop projects and our sons (we now have two seven and two years old) are getting a massive learning experience from this, learning about new languages, cultures, food, weather, geography and of course building houses too! We could never do this if they went to a normal school.
