In this Changemaker Challenge Career Clarity Session, Carly Banks chats with fellow Yoga Health Coach Marcia Wilson. Marcia is a newly certified yoga health coach running her second pilot program and starting YHC Mastery.
Marcia has been in the wellness industry for a long time, but she feels she has never had the level of impact on the people she has worked with as she has had with yoga health coaching. As a studio owner and yoga teacher, she knew by the interactions with her students after class that her students wanted more contact with her. As an occupational therapist, Marcia feels she didn’t have the tools she needed to make a difference in her patient’s day to day lives until yoga health coaching.
Yoga Health Coaching is a great fit for yoga teachers who want to make a bigger impact without burning themselves out. Often yoga teachers are so busy running around from class to class, and maybe even working a side job, that they miss out on yoga’s sister science, ayurveda. They aren’t taking care of themselves and they’re out of integrity with what they’re teaching.
The habits of ayurveda that Marcia has learned in Yoga Health Coaching have benefitted her personally in how she shows up in her personal life, and the business training she received in YHC has been significant and impactful on her professional life. She now sees herself as a community builder with the skills of a savvy business woman.
Marcia Wilson is an Occupational Therapist, yoga studio owner, and Yoga Health Coach (in training) in Kamloops, BC. A life-long learner, she’s navigated career changes, motherhood, health issues and marital breakdown with increasingly refined skills gleaned from the world of yoga and ayurveda. Her current passion? Supporting others on their journey of evolution by sharing the simple self care practices that have shifted her into a consistent space of clear energy and deep connection.
