In this Changemaker Challenge Career Clarity Session, Carly Banks sits down with fellow yoga health coach, Mariko Lavender Jones to discuss how the 10 habits of Body Thrive have personally affected her.
Mariko is a yoga teacher, yoga therapist and yoga health coach who has been running her own business since 2006. The habits of Body Thrive have made it easier to strike a balance between work life and home life, between caring for others and self care. By waking before dawn to practice self care, Mariko is able face each day with a positive mindset.
Body Thrive and Yoga Health Coaching help us understand who we are and get grounded in our being. We refine our days and find time for learning and creativity. And there is no endgame. We continue to grow and deepen our practice. We’re not satisfied with “good enough.”
Our goal is “extraordinary.”
If you’re done with “good enough” and ready for “extraordinary,” have a conversation with one of our coaches.
