I was born and raised in Tehran, Iran. After leaving Iran at 11, we went to live in Turkey for 3 years and then my family moved to the United States where we have been living since.

I studied electrical engineering and French at university, the perfect preparation for a self-employed author/speaker/business-coach as you can agree (just kidding!) and then entered the corporate world.

In 2011, I resigned from my 12-year long career at a Fortune 100 company to start my own company, Prolific Living Inc. My husband joined our company late 2012. We've never once looked back!

Today, I am a 4-book author, speaker, business coach, and an avid health nut and yoga practitioner. I am passionate about showing my readers and clients how to define freedom,

8 Ways Yoga Made Me Grow in 2019

2019. It has been a fantastic year. I thank my lucky stars for every wonder, every sweet blessing, every ounce of health and wellness, every speaking gig and client and business engagement, every trip and discovery, and every single yoga pose, and there were thousands of them in my yoga practice in 2019. It’s funny how you think you can predict something, and you’re not even close.

I can't believe I'm giving this book a 5-star. I avoided it for the longest time because of it's crass language and then I started listening to it and decided to keep an open mind, to listen to a book with which I may disagree altogether and it surpr ...more

Farnoosh Brock is 29% done with In a Dark, Dark Wood: Im a huge Ruth Ware fan but this one is such a letdown so far. I’m 10 chapters in and it’s the story of a loser protagonist who can’t make a single snark decision and a half dozen immature women and a man doing stupid shit and nothing about the dark dark woods yet. Not a thing, except it’s dark outside. Hmmmm.

“Juices of fruits and vegetables are pure gifts from Mother Nature and the most natural way to heal your body and make yourself whole again.”
Farnoosh Brock, The Healthy Juicer's Bible: Lose Weight, Detoxify, Fight Disease, and Live Long

“He that eats till he is sick must fast till he is well.
~ English proverb”
Farnoosh Brock, The Healthy Juicer's Bible: Lose Weight, Detoxify, Fight Disease, and Live Long

“Weight Loss Versus Health Gain:
"Forget the idea of 'losing' anything. Let that happen organically. Instead, focus only on adding the healthy habit of juicing into your system. Think only about the healthy changes you are integrating into your body and not so much about taking anything away. Now, this is more empowering position in which you put yourself. You are in charge of the adding, but you have no control of the subtracting. Let the weight loss be a natural result of the changes that you make and think in terms of adding health into your system instead. Juicing is one such addition.”
Farnoosh Brock, The Healthy Juicer's Bible: Lose Weight, Detoxify, Fight Disease, and Live Long

“The lust for comfort kills the passions of the soul.”
Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

“The man who does not value himself, cannot value anything or anyone.”
Ayn Rand, The Virtue of Selfishness: A New Concept of Egoism

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
Anais Nin

“Juices of fruits and vegetables are pure gifts from Mother Nature and the most natural way to heal your body and make yourself whole again.”
Farnoosh Brock, The Healthy Juicer's Bible: Lose Weight, Detoxify, Fight Disease, and Live Long

“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
Stephen King

Christopher Foster Hi Farnoosh, I just want to thank you for your friendship and send you love and best wishes. I admire Elizabeth Gilbert too, I have a quote of hers in my new cancer book. It goes like this: "We don't realize that, somewhere within us all, there does exist a supreme self who is eternally at peace."
