Holistic Wellness Coaching

What is holistic health?
Holistic health looks at the WHOLE person, who is made of many interdependent parts - physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, social, environmental, etc. - and uses ALL factors when aiming to help improve a persons quality of life and help them reach optimal health and well-being.
Who can benefit from this type of coaching?
EVERYONE! A holistic health facilitator will look outside the box and at YOU as an individual person before cultivating a plan to help you reach your health and wellness goals. We are multidimensional beings and there is NO WAY a “one size fits all” approach can work for everyone. I take into account YOUR life, barriers, etc. and work WITH you to create a realistic plan that will help you reach your goals.

Intro to Shinrin Yoku (One on One)
Outdoors In Nature
Shinrin meaning "forest" and Yoku meaning "bath" in Japanese is a Japanese practice known (scientifically) to reduce stress levels, help us think more clearly, restore vitality and bridge the gap between us and the natural world.
We will allow nature enter through our ears, eyes, nose, mouth (when possible), hands and feet.
Studies also show that people who spend regular, mindful time, unplugged in forests have lower heart rates, lower cortisol levels (stress hormone), lower blood pressure and higher parasympathetic nerve activity. Overall improving our physical and mental quality of life.
Please keep in mind, like all other therapies, Nature therapy is not a "one session, fix all" approach. Nature therapy also takes time for each person to process and understand BUT I can tell you from personal experience that you can certainly get a glimpse of its life enhancing benefits after the very first session!
This 1 on 1 option is ideal for those who want the freedom to schedule their walks according to their availability.
Intro to Shinrin Yoku (Small Group)
Outdoors in Nature - Next Group Walk is April 3rd @ 11am in Merced, CA
Group Shinrin Yoku sessions offer all of the benefits of a private session but in a small group setting. A more budget friendly option for those wanting to heal through nature but working with a budget.
We will car pool when possible to offset our carbon footprint and spend some time at the start and end of each session in group discussion.
The next Group Session date is Saturday April 3rd in Merced, CA.
Via Zoom in an Outdoor Space at Your Disposal - No Charge (FREE)
Do you know the importance of making time and space in our lives for prayer and solitude? It’s easier said than done in a world that not only accepts but values;
1) Being busy - it disguises business as being “productive”,
2) Not slowing down or resting - which is perceived as laziness,
3) Not feeling - which is viewed as “weakness” or “too emotional”
4) Not listening - well, because most of us are constantly surrounded by noise.
Let’s go against the grain and follow Jesus’ example in Matthew 14 instead! “After He had dismissed the crowds, He went up the mountain to pray.” Matthew 14:23.
Jesus Himself saw the importance of spending time alone outside, praying. Since we are called to be like Him, let’s decide right now to dedicate this time to cultivating our relationship with our savior and opening ourselves up to living the life we were created for! I’ve learned from experience that God speaks the loudest in silence.
Join me every Saturday morning for a time of Holy Listening! Dedicating this time to breathing, praying, listening and reflecting; in turn allowing God to speak truth into our lives, grow us, heal us and equip us!
Though I will be there guiding us through prayer and meditation, this is not a "group event", this is a time for YOU to meet with our savior. I am merely the facilitator of time.
So find a quiet outdoors space and show up for yourself, for God, for your family, for the kindgom! I will be streaming live from my backyard deck most days. No extra "stuff" needed, bring only yourself but feel free to roll out a mat to move around on in case you feel discomfort remaining in a single position for an extended period of time. I will be recommending a few therapeutic postures before we start that you are welcome to get into., A journal might also be useful, I like to write down what I feel God is saying so I can refer to it later.
Let's all be a yes! Remember, you're not coming for me AT ALL; you're showing up to meet with Jesus! Like I said, I am just the facilitator of time.
Restorative Yin - Weekly (small group via Zoom)
Small Group Via Zoom
Yin & Restorative Yoga are both quiet and simple practices, Yin however, is not necessarily "easy". Yin yoga works deep into our body. It targets our deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues — ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body — rather than the muscles. Restorative, though similar in many ways to Yin, differs in that it is a more soothing practice designed to relax and restore. To be healthy, we need healthy organs as well as healthy muscles. I will offer up different poses throughout practice and you will decide if you want to be gentle (restorative) or prefer to go deeper and find your edge (Yin). Poses will be long held, sometimes up to 10 minutes.
Props are required for this practice. At least, 1 yoga mat, 1 blanket, 1 bolster, 1 strap, 1 sand bag & 1 eye pillow.

Ice Bath Therapy
Outdoors in Merced - 1 on 1 & Group Sessions Available
This isn't just a regular ice bath! We will start with focused, intentional breath work and meditation, followed by an intense 15 minute H.I.I.T. workout, then hit the ice!
Ice baths reduce inflammation and improve recovery by changing the way blood and other fluids flow through your body. When you sit in cold water, your blood vessels constrict; when you get out, they dilate. This process helps flush away metabolic waste, ease sore & aching muscles, treat anxiety & depression, improve circulation and tone skin. It allows the controlled elicitation of the body’s natural cell repairing, pain & and metabolic processes.
So if you are ready for:
Reduced stress levels
A stronger immune system
Heightened focus & determination
Less inflammation in your body
Improved sports performance
Greater cold tolerance
Then this service is for you!
Keep in mind, ice bath therapy isn't "a one time, fix all" solution. Like all therapy, it takes time, effort and dedication to reap its benefits but it IS undeniably, scientifically proven to be beneficial!
Small group option/pricing available. Email me for more info.

Intro to Plant Based Nutrition Consultation
Have you been curious about the benefits of becoming Vegan but don't know where to start? Or maybe you already made the switch but are not sure that you are getting enough nutrients with your current eating habits?
As a 23 year vegan (with a short stint as a vegetarian), I have navigated ALL of these tricky roads, making mistakes and savoring victories along the way. All with the help of my medical doctor, tracking my labs along the way.
Of course there is no "one size fits all" program for everyone, so my goal is to give you the knowledge you will need to make informed decisions and learn how to listen to your bodies physical and emotional cues to figure out what you need to consume to thrive in a plant based lifestyle.
I will share the top nutrient deficiencies in humans(including vegans), superfoods to boost immune system and ways to ensure you are consuming enough protein.

This is why it is important to identify which foods you are sensitive to and limit or remove them from your diet.
