In this Changemaker Challenge episode, Carly Banks sits down with yoga health coach Hannah Levin to talk about her ongoing evolution into yoga health coaching. Hannah started out as an art teacher. After going through yoga teacher training, she stopped teaching art, went to ayurveda school, and opened a private ayurveda practice. Having a private practice was challenging prior to yoga health coaching. Hannah was ”scrambling,” teaching 10 yoga classes a week in addition to seeing ayurveda clients privately and working other jobs as well. She wasn’t having the kind of impact she wanted to have either.
Enrolling in Yoga Health Coaching was a big leap of faith. The financial investment was scary, but not as scary as her self doubt. As she prepared to launch her pilot program, she realized that all of the work she had done up to this point had prepared her for the work she would do with yoga health coaching. Hannah feels as though she is still in transition, but she sees the time coming to where she won’t be teaching as much yoga or seeing as many private clients, which will allow her more time to support her group and get back to pottery.
Although Hannah started in February of this year, by September, she had enrolled enough members to pay off her YHC tuition . . . and she’s not even certified yet! Even better, she’s having the impact she wants to have.
Hannah grew up in an artistic/health-conscious family in the mountains of NC. She learned early on that health has many components.
As a young adult, she struggled with chronic sinus infections and digestive issues. Through changes in diet and lifestyle, and taking (and making) herbal medicine, Hannah rebuilt her vitality and realized that she was drawn to alternative health modalities. She became a yoga teacher, studied herbalism, and delved into exploring the body/mind connection.
Hannah has now dedicated her life to learning about individual health and empowerment through wellbeing practices and sharing them with others. She brings this integrated knowledge to working with each of her clients as individuals on a unique path toward integration and healing. Connect with Hannah on her website and Facebook.
