Carla Golden: Happiness Facilitator

 

Tell us about your magical healing powers:

Professionally I am a massage therapist and a spiritual nutritionist. In my massage practice I specialize in therapeutic essential oils. With food coaching I have online programs and 1:1 coaching to help others eat well to fuel their physical body, and nourish their spiritual body. I use a high-fruit and mega veggie approach, compassionate living (to people, animals, and planet) combined with energy medicine using the chakra system.

 

Please tell us about your home team:

Chad and I have been married for 13 years and share the parenting pleasure of raising our 12-year old daughter, Bella. We live in a small house on a small island off the coast of South Carolina with two cats and one territorial little dog.

SAM_0371crop
 Besides your work, what else are you passionate about?

I am passionate about compassionate living: compassion for ourselves, others, animals, and the planet. I believe my work can help with personal transformation, human evolution, and global revolution. Food is so often seen as physical substance on a plate. I see a powerful tool for change because with every bite we take, we are telling the world what kind of world we wish to live in. 7 billion mouths eating daily is a loud statement about world affairs! I am also passionate about roller skating and want to open my own rink, I love to read, and am crazy about movies.

 

How do you take care of yourself?

Eating well is my work and my lifestyle. I teach what I do. Choosing pristine food for optimal fuel is what I do to stay well and beautiful. In the summer I love to swim laps, year around I love to run, and in the winter I do more yoga. Sleep is paramount and I make a point to get 8 hours most nights, if not more.

 

Anything else you’d like to share about your business or anything else?

I love life and I love spending it with my husband, daughter, and friends. Each day is truly a gift. I’m so excited that I’m only 44 and have at least 50 more years to do the work and live the life I love!!!

Chara Armon: Mutual Flourishing Mentor

 

What are your magical healing powers?

I inspire women to see the connections between personal wellness and planetary wellness, between self-care and Earth-care.

 

Tell us about your home team.

I’m married to a loving scientist and we’re raising three gorgeous children who currently are 15, 12, and 8, along with a French Water Dog and an organic permaculture garden containing plants we love to tend.

Image

Besides your work, what else are you passionate about?

I’m passionate about healing the human-Earth relationship through teaching, activism, and approaches such as permaculture, bio-dynamics, and the Transition movement. I love to be informed about the natural world and how we can repair it, as well as about women’s issues and natural family living. My past work has been as a scholar of history and religion and the human-Earth relationship over time, and those topics continue to be meaningful to me.

 

How do you take care of yourself?

This is an area where I am trying to grow. I do small bits of yoga and stretching daily, I study Eden Energy Medicine, I benefit from EFT, I’m very thoughtful about my diet, and I walk daily. I have been enjoying wearing more jewelry and feminine clothing and generally embracing my femininity somewhat more. I would like to exercise more and gain relief from some health challenges.

 

What else would you like to share about you, your work or anything?

I would love to be in contact with any other women, especially mommas, who are on the journey of recognizing and honoring the connections between our personal wellness and the health and stability of the natural world.

{Mamas Healing Mamas} Cathy Cochrane: Holistic Health Specialist

Hello Pilates lovers,

I’m so thrilled to introduce you to yet another incredible mama. Cathy Cochrane is a Holistic Health Specialist from Canada whose passion is to help heal mamas from the inside out.

Please enjoy, ask Cathy any questions you may have, and share away!

big love,

The Pilates Mama

 

CathyPic-e1373938386117

What is your official title?

Holistic Health Specialist

 

What are your magical healing powers?

I guide women to heal from the inside out, by teaching them to listen to their body as the source of wisdom and healing for their needs.

My magic healing powers are disguised in the tools and support I offer to my clients, and in the commitment they are willing to make to enrich their health and their lives.

 

Tell us about your home team.

I’ve been blessed with a home full of men: a devoted husband, 2 sons in their 20s and an adorable angel who’s nearly 8. Fortunately, all that testosterone is balanced by our 9 year old lady cat.

Despite the challenges of smelly socks and trying to keep the fridge stocked, I know that I’m loved and respected by each and every one of them in their own way.

Nothing pleases me more than seeing my children out in the world, doing their thing; I’m bursting with joy that they’re each forging their own path.

 

Cathy & K 

Besides your work, what else are you passionate about?

I live for any day that I can be out in Nature – specifically surrounded by trees. Walking in the woods, sitting quietly under a tree with a book or my journal, meditating their beauty and strength. The only thing that makes it better is when there’s a lake nearby that I can swim in. Now that’s icing on the cake!

I’ve a deep, uncanny, connection to our green symbiants – something I don’t generally talk about – and I’m starting to look around for a suitable organization through which I can give back to those organisms that bring us so much.

 

How do you take care of yourself?

As you can imagine, being outside charges my batteries like nothing else, so long as I conscientiously connect with some piece of the natural world around me. Grounded into Nature, I have boundless energy for work, for looking after my family, for the mundane tasks of caring for my home.

In fact, that one piece has become the cornerstone to my spiritual practice, and it reminds me that every gesture I make during the day is a continuation of that practice.

Though I’m not one for many products or decorations when it comes to my own toilette, nor into drastic diets, there’s so much pleasure in what I do when I approach it with the idea that I’m adorning or feeding the goddess inside.

 

What else would you like to share about you, your work or anything?

Through my work I hope to inspire more women to take the same approach.

Rather than separate body & soul to be considered from different points of view, I aim to inspire women to feel their soul through the body and allow its love and purpose simply to pour forth from the container.

It’s through hearing a woman’s story that I draw together the themes & images that permeate her life, provide clues to her ailments and the keys to her healing.

I want women to understand that being IN that overweight, cramping, mucousy body is all a part of the package – that it’s through the celebration of its wonders that she’ll transform it (or it’ll transform her!)

 

Do you have a favorite inspirational quote?

This quote touched me so much when I first read “The Poisonwood Bible” ages ago, but suddenly, the context of my work has breathed new life to it for me:

“Listen. To live is to be marked. To live is to change, to acquire the words of a story, and that is the only celebration we mortals really know.” Barbara Kingsolver

What is your official title?

Body-Centered Coach and Self-Transformation Catalyst for Moms

 

What are your magical healing powers?

My magical healing power is to see the greatest version of the conscious and spiritual moms with whom I work as I help them tune into their physical bodies, heal emotional pain, and embrace the essence of who they truly are (but just may not be able to see…yet). I work effectively with them through utilizing my intuition, personal experiences, training in body-centered psychotherapy and coaching, mindset shifting, and energetic techniques so that they can shift patterns they’re sick and tired of repeating (and don’t want to pass down to their children). As my amazing clients begin to work with me, I help them notice or tune into their physical body, which allows us to tap into some unconscious beliefs or emotions they still carry, so that they can start to heal past trauma and current issues affecting their lives today. During this process, we are able bring their unconscious emotional and familial patterns into consciousness, and I offer them the tools needed to break patterns as they connect to their intuition, gain confidence, and create the happy and fulfilling lives they desire (and SO much more!).

 

Tell us about your home team.

Oh, my little team at home… I have a very supportive and hard-working husband of 10 years, who is always on my side when I am making big shifts personally or professionally. He truly loves me unconditionally and supports me in all areas of my life. I have an almost 9-year old daughter who is so kind, loving, thoughtful, creative, and spiritual. She’s strong and confident as well and we have a beautiful connection. I have a 6.5-year old son, who is creative and intellectually gifted beyond words. He is also inquisitive (I have to Google many of his thought provoking questions!) and super sensitive. He’s an interesting combo in that he has a very blunt side to him as well. In fact, you might hear him saying things like, “Your breath smells like rotten tomatoes and popcorn!” That’s a direct quote! And I love every inch of him. Then there’s my sweet little surprise 3 year old daughter (who was more of a surprise to my husband than me, since I completely manifested her into our lives) who is fearless, active, and makes my heart skip a beat on a daily basis. Each of my children have taught me new things about myself, and have really “forced” me to become a better woman, partner, and mother. It ain’t all unicorns and rainbows, but it’s the life I love and wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Besides your work, what else are you passionate about?

Besides ending sex-trafficking and the enslavement of children as sex slaves, child abuse, child pornography, and any degradation of children, I am also passionate about helping moms stop the intergenerational dysfunctional patterns that have been passed down for years and years. I want to help women truly see their own divine light and the essence of who they are, so they can do the same for their daughters and sons. I want to live in a world where young girls and women can be strong, assertive, and confident (without being called bitchy), as well as sensitive, sensual, and compassionate (without being called a pushover). I want boys to be able to cry without being shamed and to be rough and tumble, but sensitive and caring at the same time. That’s what I’m passionate about and I feel that it all starts at home, with us…moms and dads.

 

How do you take care of yourself?

Right now, my favorite self-care practices are meditation, acupuncture, dancing, and simply slowing down and recognizing the beauty in life. I also enjoy a large cup of organic tea in my favorite handmade mug with vanilla coconut creamer added (YUM) and green juice. Just recently I attended an amazing retreat, which definitely felt like a luxury and massive self-care heaven!

 

What else would you like to share about you, your work or anything?

Right now I work with moms who have daughters and sons privately and for 12 weeks at a time, and this has been the only way to work with me up to this point. I’m super excited to tell you that my small group program is almost complete and will start no later than September of this year! It will include 1-1 AND group time for each woman in this group of no more than 8. This new program is for spiritual, conscious, and open-minded moms with daughters OR sons. It will encompass helping moms heal past hurt or trauma, feel more integrated in their feminine and masculine, trust their intuition more, become more aware of their bodies on a daily basis as it relates to their unconscious patterns, improve their relationships with themselves, their partners, and their children (there will be a parenting component as well). We will also talk about and teach rituals, guided visualizations, journaling, incorporating spirituality into your children’s lives, and more. I am beyond excited about it and I know it will help SO many women!

 

Do you have a favorite inspirational quote?

“A mother who radiates self-love and self-acceptance actually vaccinates her daughter against low self-esteem.”  

And the following is one of my quotes that I like.:)  

“When you choose to release your children from YOUR expectations of who you THINK they should be, then they have the space they need to become confident and to shine their own unique lights into the world.”

{Mamas Healing Mamas} Kate Lethbridge: Holistic Kinesiologist

Hello, Pilates lovers,

I’m so thrilled to offer what I think is going to be such a fun, inspiring, and educational series of blog posts.

For the next few weeks, I will be highlighting some amazing mamas who have made it their mission in life to help other mamas.

Each woman will be sharing a bit about their life, and the passion behind their work, plus a few tips that may be of help to you!

Enjoy! And comment below with any questions– Kate will be sure to answer asap.

Much love,

 Meet Kate Lethbridge: Holistic Kinesiologist 

 

picmonkey_image

What are your magical healing powers?

I LOVE to help people break through their limits, ditch their baggage and live their absolute dream life. I use kinesiology to literally clear out the stress from the body that has been keeping you stuck. Once physical and emotional pain-points are resolved, there is no other option that to live the life of your dreams! I specialise in one-on-one consultations in person or via Skype.

 

Tell us about your home team.

I am married to my extremely supportive and loving husband who is also just as passionate as me about business and health. We have a beautiful 9-month old daughter who we adore.

Besides your work, what else are you passionate about?

I feel very strongly about supporting organically grown produce. It is not only considerably better for our health; it is the only way to ensure that our animals are being treated as humanely as possible throughout the farming process. ‘Free-range’ is not free-range.

 

How do you take care of yourself?

Eating only organic produce; fresh lemon in warm water before breakfast; avoiding all refined sugar; use organic coconut oil as moisturiser; visit the beach barefoot as often as possible; Bikram yoga twice a week; watch a TV show I love every so often when I need to switch-off; daily discussion with my husband about our hopes and dreams whether they be soon or far into the future and not being scared to change them – regularly!

 

What else would you like to share about you, your work or anything?

I have a background as a registered nurse, having this knowledge behind my kinesiology practice really helps me understand what is happening within mine and my client’s body. I have also been through major life changes and have lived in fear for a long time. This is why I am so passionate about helping people make the changes that they want to make in the easiest and most supportive way possible; so that they too can live their dream life.
