My Holistic Life Coaching Journey
From a very young age, I was active, loved sports, and being outside in nature. I first joined a local Judo club at the age of six. I remember that day well, as it marked the beginning of a path that would later lead me to extensively train and compete (Judo; Karate) and eventually teach (Capoeira) in nearly every corner of the globe.
I reached a point in my early 20’s where I realized I didn’t want to just practice Capoeira – I wanted to live it. I had to learn how to properly train and feed my body to maintain the level of fitness, mobility, and health I desired. Thus I got qualified as a Fitness and Nutrition Trainer not knowing at the time that I was also building a foundation for my journey as a personal trainer and holistic life coach.
I gained valuable experience as a gym instructor and a Capoeira teacher while simultaneously testing the impact and effectiveness of various diets, natural supplements, and remedies. I was astounded with what I was learning, so I began to share my discoveries with students and friends.
As the news spread, I started preparing workout plans and nutrition consultancies while also offering personal and group workout sessions. Over the years, I was able to guide several individuals in reshaping their physical bodies and overall health. However, when following up with some of my friends and clients after a while, some seemed to have a difficult time maintaining or improving their results on their own.
It appeared that, while we had been able to impact the physical body while working out together, we had not properly addressed the emotional and mental aspects. As a result, their ability to self-motivate and continue implementing their new lifestyle suffered. I knew I could do more to help them.
It became my goal to not only offer hands-on workout sessions and nutrition plans but to also address the holistic being in order to maximize lasting results.
I continued to explore other modalities (Yoga, Reiki, EFT, Psychological First Aid, etc.) and my perspective expanded. I began to look at life – and my client’s and friends’ challenges – from a new angle.
We are all unique physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual beings on our own individual journeys towards self-realization. Acknowledging this has inspired and encouraged me to employ my experiences, skills, and abilities to help those who seek support overcoming their current challenges in life.
