Bliss And Stars Experience

MEET your GUIDES

We have an inherent passion for life well-lived. We know how difficult and confusing it can be to find out what is best for our bodies, minds & hearts in the fast-paced world.

Daria & Melissa have been helping people lead themselves through the change. Our goal is to unlock your inherent wisdom and give yourself permission to pause and simply be. 

And in the simplicity of being, we find the most profound nourishment.

We tap into nature and combine health coaching, neuroscience, movement, meditation, massage techniques to help you feel better from within.
