About

Rama Erasmus

At the young and influential age of 15, and after being kicked out of her family home, Rama started living on the streets of Vancouver. She joined some of the most notorious and dangerous gangs and sold drugs to eat and survive.

After moving back home one year later, feeling empty and abandoned by her family, Rama developed an eating disorder going from a healthy 115lbs to over 210 lbs. Food became a way of coping with emotions, a way to connect with self, and medicate to numb out from the world. At the age of 18, Rama felt unloved, lost and without purpose. Without having any tools to deal with her feelings of sadness and rejection, Rama took a bottle of pills in a failed suicide attempt.

One day in her early twenties, after spending many years high on drugs, drunk on alcohol, and most of her life in depression, Rama was sitting in her bedroom alone crying, when she heard a deep calling from within. She knew she could no longer live in the manner she was. She felt there was so much in life for her to experience and share, and that a deeper purpose was waiting for her. It was time to change.

Rama started by climbing a mountain twice a week, joined a gym and lost over 80 pounds. She became a personal trainer and passionate about helping others get healthy and fit knowing that it wasn't just about food and exercise, it is what comes from the inside that shows up on the outside.
After Rama's weight loss and helping others with theirs, she went in search for more. She felt better about herself, had more confidence, yet, she knew there was much more out there that she needed to learn and experience.
