RAW. YOGA. LIFE. Empowerment Retreat Intensive (East Coast)


Who do you want to be?


What do you want your life to look like?


How amazing do you want to feel?


My name is Brandi Rollins, PhD,

and my job is to empower beautiful individuals like you

to become the amazing person they want

to be.

I have been running affordable raw food programs and workshops

for 6 years (eating raw foods for 13 years), teaching yoga for 4 years,

and serving as a life coach for as long as I can remember

(it’s in my genes).


Empowering people to change their lives is simply what I do

and I am so honored to do it.

Introducing my NEW RAW. YOGA. LIFE.

3-Day Empowerment Retreat Intensive


I created RAW. YOGA. LIFE. to show individuals like you how to holistically make the changes they want to see in their lives. Change can be hard; but, here’s the GOOD NEWS!


Change is simply a series of choices!


Either your choices are moving you towards the person you want to be, or away from it. My goal is to show you how to make nourishing choices AND create the life you want to live.


RAW. YOGA. LIFE. is unique in that it combines



This is the ultimate package for creating revolutionary change in your life! And here’s why:


A high raw foods diet nourishes your body and increases your energy levels, making it easy to become more active. Yoga not only moves the body and increases energy levels, it can improve mindfulness and internal body awareness, further supporting healthy eating habits. And life empowerment coaching gets the whole ball rolling…and keeps it rolling, motivating you to stay on track.

What is a High Raw Foods Diet?

Raw foods is a way of eating that celebrates the flavor, texture, and beauty of plant-based foods in their natural state, which includes fresh fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, nuts and seeds, sea vegetables, sprouts, and fermented foods. These foods are prepared fresh and whole, and are not processed, cooked, or steamed. Foods are not heated above 115-118 degrees Fahrenheit to maintain enzyme content, thereby making the foods more digestible. A High Raw Foods diet simply means that 75% or more of your diet consists of raw foods.

A High Raw Foods diet detoxes and nourishes the body, while giving you the energy and momentum to make the revolutionary changes you want to see in your life.


Why eat Raw Foods?

  • A plant-based diet naturally increases your intake of fruit, vegetables, and dark leafy greens, which can help you to reduce your risk of high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and other chronic illness. This way of eating can also result in weight loss and more conscious eating behaviors (e.g. eating to live, not living to eat).

  • Many vitamins and nutrients are temperature sensitive (e.g. vitamin C), so when we cook our fruits and vegetables, we can actually destroy these nutrients.

  • Increased energy, stamina, mental clarity, and focus.

  • Happiness. For me, the biggest reason for eating raw foods has always been happiness. I am my most happy when I eat raw foods. I am less moody, more patient and content, and I have more energy to do the things I want to do. I eat raw foods because it helps me to be a better, happy human being.


Yoga is more than just exercise.

YOGA is about life and how we choose to live it. In every moment of everyday, we are practicing something. We do a great job of practicing stress, worry, anger, low self-esteem, etc…choose your poison. Instead, YOGA teaches us to become more conscious about what we practice AND it teaches us how to make decisions that nourish our mind-body-spirit. YOGA teaches us how to be our best selves.

I teach students to use breath, movement and sound to focus their mind, physically challenge their bodies, take up space in their existence, and to PLAY. In our culture, we have forgotten about the importance of play as a tool for learning and experiencing life. But as adults, we have the opportunity to infuse play with wisdom in how we authentically express ourselves on and off the mat.


What can STUDENTS expect from my instruction?
Students can expect to feel internally nourished, to be challenged, and to leave the class feeling stronger and clear-minded. In each class, I provide a space where students can experience yoga as their own, rather than simply regurgitating a list of movements. While this is what I offer, what any student experiences in my class will depend on their sincere interest in exploring and allowing creativity into their practice.

Why LIFE Empowerment Coaching?

Because getting off the couch can be hard!



We all know that it is good to eat healthy and exercise…and we all know how hard this can be.

Most of us have dreams about who we want to be and how we want to live. Yet, change seems beyond our reach. This is where Life Empowerment Coaching comes it.

Do me a favor and SAY this out loud 3 or more times:


“Today, I abandon my old habits and take up new, more positive ones.
I am a powerhouse; I am indestructible.
I am stronger than I can imagine.


How do you feel? Good? Well, that’s what I’m talking about!

Life Empowerment Coaching facilitates long-lasting change through setting goals, confronting and releasing fears, and being brave. It’s about SHOWING UP and saying YES to Life.

What people are saying about my Workshops, Programs, and Books!


Brandi, this 6-Day Raw Foods on a Budget Challenge was exactly what I needed in my life it was healing physically and mentally. Your way of putting veggies and fruits together without torturing them with heat and adding flava is amazing. This way of eating has made a tremendous impact on my life in such a wonderful way.
Thank you.

Betty Majors

Thank You!

Every time I feel I need a reset in my life regarding food I go back to Brandi and her Raw Foods on a Budget plan. It is what got me eating raw 5 years ago and it is what I am comfortable with after all of these years. I am not nor have I ever been 100% raw but I have learned that I can eat mostly raw and feel fantastic. Brandi’s recipes are healthful, easy and delicious!

It’s for good this time!

So my friend Brandy Heyward, who now is a Vegan Chef, encouraged me a couple years ago to do the challenge with you. I found the recipes easy to follow and the shopping list incredibly helpful. While I didn’t convert to total veganism, I found it provided a means for me to incorporate more of the vegan lifestyle in my diet. So I learned some things, like, peel the bananas BEFORE you freeze them. 🙂 But the best benefit, was when I had my annual checkup, my cholesterol numbers went down and my Doctor was very pleased.

I went back to my old ways of eating and most recently my numbers were up to the point where they were looking at putting me on a statin drug, but I was still borderline. I refused to go on a drug and am going back on the Book Camp to get my health back. Because of the Boot Camp I got used to having collard and kale smoothies for breakfast and I make my lunches at work, so my students and co-workers see me massaging my kale and yeast and onions in my raw salads and get to sample my yummy foods. I keep a copy of your recipes in the drawer at work so I can pull them out when I make my breakfast and lunch. I’m excited to be back on the program and it will be for good this time!


I am so ready for

I am so ready for this change! I was vegan for 4 solid years and went back to eating fish and chicken. I was so fit and healthy. I want to get back to feeling good. Putting healthy and fresh foods back in my body. It seems like a distant memory….but soon it will once again be my reality.

Loving it!

I have been loving your week one diet and it’s results!!!

Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and wonderful recipes.

I love you so much!

I’ve been doing a little raw here, a little raw there, and love it. I’ve done your boot camp…you are so inspiring!!! In fact, so much so that I’m doing a raw eating class to share some of what I’ve learned from you with my community! I hope you don’t mind, but I’d like to refer participants to you and the boot camp and your wonderful books, and FB page.
