Some of the other local co-authors who will be present during the book launch include Jacob Melaard, Transformational Coach and Feel Good Enthusiast; Nicole van Hattem, Holistic Success Coach; Dr. Maral Yazdandoost, Naturopath; Jacki Woodworth, MSW, Mindfulness, Yoga and Pilates Teacher; Gabi Pezo, Joy designer, Laughter Yoga and Gibberish Teacher, Tatjana Kulibabo, Instructor at College of North Atlantic Qatar and Jin Shin Do Acupressure Practitioner; and Emily Alp, Yoga Instructor, Nutrition Coach and Science Writer.
