-Maya Nahra, RD, Founder at Nuuaria & Creator of the Nuuaria Method®


Humans evolve. So should our coaching.

Our world is unhappier, fatter, sicker and more stressed out than ever before. From diets to motivational interviewing, and positive thinking skills to internet experts… we have more how-to’s and strategies than ever before. So what’s the problem?

The Nuuaria Method® does not stop at behavior change, in fact that’s only the first step. It teaches the client how think differently in order to create permanence in the behavior change.

It’s sustainable and refreshingly real.

Nuuaria believes that change within the individual will result in the global changes necessary for a sustainable future. The company is dedicated to bringing the integration-focused change program to the masses, accessible to anyone desiring a better way.

Nuuaria is change-work by the people for the people. Through the years, we’ve found something unsurprising… humans want to help other humans. Our multi-level education says: (1) Change me. (2) Be the change. (3) Learn to help others change. We believe experience trumps all. Lifting others up is the only way forward now.

It’s INTEGRATION-focused.

No one needs more knowledge. It’s time to close the gap between where your client is and where they want to be.

The Nuuaria Method® is 95% integration-focused teaching the individual how to think and how to feel despite external circumstance.

It’s evidenced-based.

The Nuuaria Method® uses modern-day brain science, tools in self-directed neuroplasticity, positive psychology and common sense to help your clients learn to think differently.

Proven results.

From a $3,000 reduction and elimination in script (medication) costs per year to a 93.5% increase in happiness and quality of life, the results don’t just speak for themselves, the community does too.

Implementation of the Nuuaria framework in your practice will increase your exposure, deepen your impact, and make you more money.

Coaching has never been more satisfying.

You’re not giving them fish anymore, you’re teaching them how to fish..

you’re teaching them how to think. 


The Nuuaria Method® was created by registered dietitian Maya Nahra who was in search of a better way, despite habit and circumstance. When Maya jumped from her corporate job in 2012, she quickly filled her practice from 0 to full and replaced her income in just 6 months. She then went on to make a 6-figure income as a solopreneur in her second year in practice while working and seeing clients from all over the world in her home office. She expanded into speaking and live workshops during that time, continually expanding her network and her income each year creating an unparalleled community. Maya has gone on to create a multi-level education structure. She loves speaking, teaching, writing and creating. Maya is also a lover of all things wine and enjoys a minimalistic lifestyle.


You will teach clients how to change a habit, how to think and how to feel. You will be their mentor, their teacher, their coach, and the voice of reason and sanity through their confusion.

“This has been the most rewarding work of my life.” -Maya


These are the proven results we will teach you how to achieve as you implement the framework across various platforms.

Change-work is the integration and application of tools specifically designed to help an individual close the gap between where they are and where they want to be through core competencies of Unconditional Positive Regard, presence and loving kindness.

It is not behavior change.

It is not therapy.

We are not mental health practitioners. (Unless YOU are!)

Change-work is specifically designed to help the client MOVE FORWARD.

“Hi friends! I joined the Nuuaria program 10 months ago and am now 4 months into Heart Training. Today was the first time going to see my doctor since joining the program. Happy tears came flowing out when I realized how my overall well being has changed. I didn’t need a refill on my antidepressant medication. There was a decrease in weight without dieting. When answering the questionnaire about feelings of depression, insomnia or anxiety, I could truthfully answer that I don’t suffer from it to the level I once did, nor do I feel it is something I need to fix. I’m simply being easy on myself, allowing, letting go and knowing that I am ok.” – Marisela, Nuuaria Student

You are witnessing direct results of practicing self-love and self-worth ❤️ Thank you for being the change 

“Keep showing up to do the work and relieve your painful thoughts. Coping with life and creating new possibilities.”

How powerful are those words?? Creating NEW. It’s POSSIBLE. To feel r e l i e f 💫 Nuuaria is — a breath of fresh air — 🌬

Nuuaria means ‘new air’. 


I’ve been part of Nuuaria for about a month now. For the last 6 years of my life, I’ve had high stress/anxiety translating to high to off the charts cortisol levels on my all of my labs. If you know what cortisol is and the dangers of consistently high levels, you’ll know it wreaks havoc in the body and on your entire life.

For the first time in 6 years, my cortisol levels have dropped and are closer to normal ranges. I have also felt better and better as time goes on (still a work in progress). That has to be proof that the program has helped me get here in such a short amount of time. This was an emotional yet invigorating experience for me 

Thank you 💜 -Vanessa, Nuuaria Student

You’ll increase your confidence, experience more clarity and quickly become a leader in your community.

These are the effects of change-work.



Fourteen years of testing, measuring and evaluating results and trends has birthed the most effective methodology, now available for you to learn, implement and create impact with.

You will teach with Nuuaria’s resources while adding your own levels of support and accountability. (Don’t worry, we’ll help you set up your own style that’s matches your expertise and passion and – of course – makes you money.)

The formula is simple:

Take your unique expertise and passion, add the proven Nuuaria framework, have fun, and 10X your life satisfaction factor.

clients access to our course curriculum and workbook (required) during their time with you. This is the marketing and practice support kit. There is a monthly fee for this that will automatically be deducted. The two options are: Pay-per-client – best option when starting out, OR, pay in one lump sum – best with a full practice of clients. Remember, these are the Nuuaria Method™ resources while you supply the support, accountability and personal/ professional expertise. MAPS is required as a Certified Nuuaria Practitioner. As part of the Nuuaria family of practitioners, everything is done-for-you, inclusive of future updates. You will also be welcomed into the network of Nuuaria certified practitioners across the country, used for additional networking and referral opportunities.



In the work of change-work… YOU, as a practitioner also change and grow, which is why we require continuing education to maintain your certification after your initial certification process. You will have access to additional resources such as

  • Practitioner CE webinars
  • Online events
  • Community-based events
  • Retreats
  • and more…

Some CE opportunities are complimentary while others are available at an additional cost.

How long will it take me to complete?
The certification is designed to be completed in twelve months. Upon graduation, you will be given a certificate of completion and a seal for your website to display your credentials.
Do I have to travel to participate?
Nope! While some programs have you travel to sites and locations (spending even more money), you can do this entirely online, from the comfort of your own home.
What are the enrollment requirements?
You automatically meet the requirements if you 1) have a professional license, certification, or associate’s degree or higher in any healthcare or wellness-related field; 2) have at least two years of full-time work experience in a healthcare or wellness-related field; or 3) have a health coach certification.
How many hours per week should I allot to course time?
We’ve broke it down into stepping stones for you. The course work will require 7-10 hours a week. Integration work is in your day-to-day routine. Lastly, your course-work time will increase during post-practicum as you see clients and begin setting up your practice (or add to an existing one). The amount of time spent here is up to you.
Do you offer scholarships, financial aid or payment plans?
Yes, we offer a 12-month payment plan. At this time there are no available scholarships or financial aid. We recommend Upstart ( to further finance your tuition.
What if I miss a class?
No problem. All classes with Maya are recorded and uploaded for later viewing.
What if I start the program and decide it’s not for me?
We make every effort to ensure that you have everything you need to make a confident and informed decision before you enroll. If you are considering enrolling but feel unsure, please schedule a free consultation with us: Email or call (480) 481-6697. Please do not enroll in the Nuuaria Certification program just to “check it out.” We offer a refund prior to the end of the enrollment period. After the program has begun, no refunds are offered.
What if my circumstances change and I can no longer keep up with the course work?
Although we do not recommend deviations, you do not need to stay on the exact schedule. You are free to pause and catch up again. You have access to the course materials for a full 12 months after the initial 12 month certification program (2 years total). Note that live support is only available during that first year and we do not accept transfers from one year into the next. You must complete and pass the final exam before graduating and receiving your certificate and credentials.
Do I have to use your courses and workbook after my certification?
Yes. You will be signing a ‘terms and conditions’ page for this. This certification is specific to the Nuuaria Methodology. We are a family and network of practitioners who work and play together towards a greater goal. Your role is to provide the support, accountability, and expertise while we provide the standardized resources that follow the framework.


Beyond the impact you will have on your clients and patients and the complete and utterly satisfying experience for yourself…

Know that you are on the leading edge of coaching and will be sought out because of it.

The whole world knows what to do… and 99% aren’t doing it. If more how-to’s really worked, we’d all be skinny, rich and happy!

Our role as leaders has evolved. There is a way to coach, teach and mentor in this world, that is not of this world. Your education with us will take your personal and professional life to the next level.

Who is the very best possible version of you?

Be that.

Then help others be that.
