About Citrus & Gold


Hi. I’m Akansha – the creator of Citrus & Gold.

I want to inspire people to be bolder, happier, and healthier.

Citrus & Gold is a health & wellness community that covers topics  on nutrition, fitness, mindfulness/growth, and much more! My goal is to be honest and practical with my approach to health & wellness.

More about Citrus & Gold: The Background

I’ve learned a lot about who I am and what matters the when I started focusing on health & my well-being.

Personally, when transitioning to a healthier lifestyle, my South Asian culture (shared with me by mom) has had a big influence on me. Yoga, natural remedies, turmeric, etc. have all been a part of my life before they became trendy. I want to share a different perspective that brings it all close to home.

I strive to promote a well-balanced lifestyle and truly believe that people become the best versions of themselves when they listen to their body. It’s not easy, and maybe not always possible, but it’s important to be consistent.

A little more about me:

I grew up in the Bay Area and currently live in San Francisco. I have 4+ years of experience in tech as a data analyst and I’m also a POP Pilates instructor. I recently quit my corporate job to pursue my wellness projects. We will see what’s next!

  • My favorite kind of workouts include running, pilates, and functional strength training.
  • The most important thing to me in life are my family and friends.
  • I love plant-based desserts and anything with chocolate.
  • My pet peeve is when people fail to respect others.

I would love to hear from you! If you have any questions or just want to say hi, drop a note here.

Lots of love,
