About Alice

Praana Wellness

Alice de Sao Joao

“I am perfectly happy in an imperfect world. I love my life with the highs and lows, twists and turns and know with certainty that I’m exactly where I need to be. If my house caught fire I’d save my passport and my juice extractor – in that order. I’m comfortable in my skin, plying my trade, on a plane, in a foreign country, painting a house, digging the garden, reading a book, debating a sensitive topic.”

“I relax in the bath with bubbles up to my nose. Of course I relax better when said bath is the freestanding ball-and-claw type perched in the middle of a huge spa bathroom with a view of the prairies, mountains or ocean. My most valuable asset is discipline, which has been the cornerstone of my life, enabling me to achieve my goals and live my best life.”

The quote by which I live my life is:

“All ambitions are lawful except those that climb upward on the miseries or credulities of mankind”. Joseph Conrad English (Polish-Ukrainian-born) novelist
