Exercising in the Ayurvedic tradition focuses on the exercise itself, coming in tune with our breathing, physical responses, and sense of well-being. I will help you develop a workout program consistent with Ayurvedic principles.
Personal Wellness Coaching
According to Ayurvedic theory, “from physical exercise one obtains lightness, capacity to work, elimination of impurities from the body, firmness of the body, efficiency of digestion, and balance of metabolism.” Exercise not only burns calories and increases your muscle mass, but can also improve your flexibility, coordination, balance, breathing, posture and strength. The mind benefits from Ayurvedic exercise, too: self-awareness, mental agility, self-image, and self-sufficiency are all important goals in a well-rounded program designed with you in mind.
When we exercise in the Ayurvedic tradition, we focus not on future goals (such as weight loss or fat burning) but on the exercise itself, attuning ourselves with our breathing, physical responses, and sense of well-being. I will assist you to develop a workout program consistent with Ayurvedic principles and your own personal health and wellness goals.
A coach helps their clients achieve their goals, through goal setting, encouragement and questions. Unlike a counselor or mentor, a coach rarely offers advice. Typically, a coach helps clients find their own solutions, by asking questions that give them insight into their situations, and helps to motivate them to complete their plan.
I can coach you through one or more of several areas: transition coaching, life or personal coaching, health and wellness.
