What Is Coaching?

Experience Engaged Living through Mindfulness, Mindset and Movement
When we practice, talk about, and teach engaged living, we are talking about living with intention and purpose. It's about getting in touch with what you want, from a place of internal motivation rather than external, and going after it. The goal is to be fully present and proactive. Engaged living isn’t so much about what you do, it’s about how you do it.
CULTIVATE MINDFULNESS: Cultivating a practice of mindfulness is like going to the gym to train and build the muscles in your body. Incorporating mindfulness, both formally and informally, into your day helps build capacity for emotional well-being and self-regulation. That way, when you find yourself in a moment of stress or anxiety you have the tools to manage and work through it in a healthy way. Learning to live with intention is foundational to our work.
DEVELOP A GROWTH MINDSET: Two types of mindsets exist: fixed and growth. People with a fixed mindset believe their qualities or abilities are fixed, or static, with little room for improvement. With a growth mindset, people believe their abilities can be developed and improved with time, dedication and hard work. For them, talent and natural ability are just a starting point and failure is an opportunity for growth and new learning
MOVE PLAYFULLY: Discover new ways to move around that you enjoy and find fun. Finding time to bring play back into your life, at any age, will boost your mood and physical wellbeing.
