The Yoga Health Coaching Podcast with Cate Stillman


May 16, 2018

In this Changemaker Challenge conversation, Cate and Grace discuss trauma, turmoil, and evolving through transitions as a wellness pro. One week post-op major abdominal surgery, Grace Edison is glowing! Prior to her surgery, Grace made sure that her Body Thrive habits were solid, especially the ones she would be able to do post-op. Professionally, there wasn’t much to be done. Her annual planning was complete, and the structure and support for her courses was already in place. The YHC business model allowed Grace to relax and focus on what was most important - healing. When we put the “pro” in wellness pro, as we do in Yoga Health Coaching, it’s important for us to model ease and flow no matter what life throws at us. Trauma, turmoil, and transition open the liminal space, a space beyond the threshold of our own patterns and programming, that allows opportunity for new insights and growth. The habits of Body Thrive provide us with a groundness that leaves us much more available to our experience. Yoga Health Coaching creates a lifestyle and structure that allows us to turn trauma, turmoil, and transitions into opportunities for insight, growth, integration, and evolution!

 

What you’ll get out of tuning in:

  • How to turn trauma, turmoil, and transitions into opportunities for insight, growth, integration, and evolution.
  • How the habits of Body Thrive help us thrive through trauma.
  • How Yoga Health Coaching is more than just a business model.

Show Highlights:

  • 0:30 - One week post-op major abdominal surgery, Grace Edison is glowing! Prior to her surgery, Grace made sure that her Body Thrive habits were solid, especially the ones she would be able to do post-op. Professionally, there wasn’t much to be done. Her annual planning was complete, and the structure and support for her courses was already in place. The YHC business model allowed Grace to relax and focus on what was most important - healing.
  • 4:30 - When we put the “pro” in wellness pro, as we do in Yoga Health Coaching, it’s important for us to model ease and flow no matter what life throws at us. For Grace, that was simply a matter of getting really clear on what needed to be done while she convalesced. Because the structure and support that provides her ease and flow was already there, she was able to relax and enjoy a sense of relief while she recovered.
  • 7:54 - Grace’s keystone habit through her convalescence has been Earlier, Lighter Dinner. Start the Day Right is a close second, particularly with regard to drinking water and pooping, which is a common problem after surgery. She’s also practicing self massage. She’s enjoyed time for reflection and deeper integration.
  • 10:35 - Trauma, turmoil, and transition open the liminal space, a space beyond the threshold of your own patterns and programming, that allows opportunity for new insights and growth. Case in point, Grace is already thinking about how she can help other people prepare for and recover from trauma.
  • 15:55 - As we engage in a growth journey and step deeper into dharma, we require a stronger energetic container. The habits of Body Thrive help us ground and build that stronger container that can withstand higher and weightier vibration. On a growth path, we’re in transition a lot more, yet with that stronger container, that groundedness, we’re much more available to our experience.
  • 19:55 - Yoga Health Coaching is more than just a business model. It creates a lifestyle and structure that allows us to turn trauma, turmoil, and transitions into opportunities for insight, growth, integration, and evolution.
