Time-Tested, Intelligent Fitness Designed for Your Life Stage and Lifestyle
I think we can all agree that our lives are much richer and more fulfilling when we feel good. We all reach for pleasure and move away from pain, its our natural response. Our clever bodies know how to compensate, and adapt to injuries and illness and our clever minds know how to find coping mechanisms to self-medicate through bad habits. These things do serve us for a while... until they don't. The loss of the ability to do the things
we love, be it from illness, injury or our aging bodies can be cause for concern as it can lead to depression and isolation.
But it doesn't have to be this way.
There are simple tools that we can use everyday that can help us get stronger, live better and cure or at least cope with chronic pain.
Maintaining wellness is a journey. There are ups and downs along the way. Periods in our lives when time is so limited we can't see clear to do anything for ourselves at all. Times when we get focused and "go for it", doing all the right things. And most of us are pretty aware of which one feels better! My programs aim to help you find the middle way. Creating self-care and self-compassion that will last a lifetime and
will be the rock for which we can always rely upon.
Yoga, Chair Yoga & Mindfulness Meditation
Yoga and meditation are time-tested techniques for stress, pain management, and
sensible fitness. Although yoga has come to be known as a complicated set of
gymnastic moves for the young and nimble, in its true form, yoga is for everyone! I design the practice to suit the individual and their unique needs and goals. Chair yoga can be adapted for everyone, whether you are wheelchair bound or spend to much time at your desk! I work with small groups or with clients on a one-on-one basis, so together we can develop a program designed to address issues specific to each individuals needs and goals.
Staying Fit Forever
Lets face it, some of us just hate going to the gym. The noise, the crowds, the overall energy. But staying strong is a lifetime commitment, so what to do? My active aging programs feature strength training, fall prevention and balance, skills and drills to help develop and maintain neuroplasticity. I work with post-cardiac rehab and cancer patients, those with chronic pain and injuries as well as healthy folks looking to increase their fitness levels. I am available for free consultations, working in retirement facilities, or in your home or mine.
Finding Flow Life Coaching
Sometimes we need a little help to get back on track. Coaching is based on the strong premise that we all have the answers within us, but they have gotten lost in the unconscious beliefs and old ideas about ourselves that are no longer useful. As a coach, I help to uncover whats holding you back from living your life with balance and ease. I am trained in the Co-Active Coaching tradition which is recognized by the ICF (International Coach Federation). I am also certified in NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) and hypnotherapy. But my real training comes from life experience and my love of helping people!
