I’ve worked in the health & fitness industry for five years. I’ve gained and learned a lot during this time. In the early days of my career, I worked as a GP Referral Consultant. On a daily basis, I worked with a number of patients with numerous medical conditions including spinal problems, pre and post natal care, injury rehabilitation, cardiac rehabilitation, weight loss/gain and so on. I always used a holistic approach toward each individual, for example, cases of weaning them off prescribed drugs for conditions such as high blood pressure or weight loss and substituting it with exercise, diet and a proper lifestyle to enable a balanced body. When I worked as a personal trainer, I used a similar holistic and flexible approach to training by combining physical, mental and nutritional training concepts.
I’ve trained in India in a two hundred hour Yoga teacher level course and travelled around Asia studying natural herbal remedies. During that time I reached a personal goal of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. I’ve also trained in ITEN, the top training camp for athlete runners.
My time at The BodyHoliday is the start of an exciting and new chapter for me. I’m thrilled to be working with such a great team at this award-winning resort on the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Lucia. I think The BodyHoliday is a perfect fit for me because their approach is holistic, just as mine. I love the way they invite their guests to do as little, or as much as they like. It’s a resort where you can stretch out and lounge on the beach all day or spend the day getting pampered at the wellness centre or have a day filled with activites, watersports and scuba diving or any mix of the three. An absolutely amazing concept if you ask me!
And now, onto my job as The BodyHoliday’s BodyAware Specialist. The BodyAware progamme is unique to The BodyHoliday – it’s a tailored progamme which helps improve nutrition habits, build a regular exercise rountine and make the necessary lifestyle changes for the combined goal of good health. By now, you can see that this will be a perfect fit for me. I’m approaching the progamme from a holistic point of view and aiding in supplying the tools to create balance in my guests lives. Nutrition is based on every individual’s Dosha type. By bringing about balance and nourishment, we can prevent the negative effects of an unbalanced body. The best lifestyle is based on achieving a daily balance of minimal or no stress, enjoying some leisure time through proper time management and good sleeping patterns. Exercise is about listening to your body and finding what complements it, both physically and mentally. All of these work to increase energy levels and leave the body feeling revitalized. Focusing on these aspects of life brings balance and harmony into the body and helps us lead healthier and more enjoyable lives. Now that’s something I know we all want!
If you’re coming to The BodyHoliday, you can book your BodyAware progamme even before your arrival with our BodyHoliday Specialists. Let me work with you during and after your stay to tailor the right progamme to you. It will change your life!
