Amy Cox, Life Coach & Personal Training of www.Losethementalweight.com
Amy, the Mental Weight Loss Coach, and I help smart, witty, joyful women lose the mental gunk that is keeping them from reaching their goals – like winning the love/hate game with food, losing the weight once and for all, and rocking out a great pair of jeans with confidence!
Why is this my passion? Because I spent the majority of my life beating myself up and feeling like a failure for not being able to keep the weight off or figure out my food struggles. When I did finally lose the physical weight (80lbs) and became a personal trainer, I still lugged around the mental weight of emotional eating and feeling like a fraud. It became clear to me that the work to define a healthy Amy, required more than rules about food and working out.
My AHA moment came when I realized that my limiting beliefs and thoughts about myself, my body, and food COULD change – I could write a new story – and I did.
I work 1 on 1 with women, just like you, because I know there is no “one size fits all” – we are all unique and deserve the space to write our own story. Through coaching sessions and email support, I will help you to identify what is holding you back from losing weight, how to cure your emotional eating, and to define what healthy means to YOU!
Amy Thedinger, Qi Gong, Thai Chi & Yoga
Amy’s journey with Yoga, Qigong and Tai Chi began after many years of long distance running and strenuous exercise. A mother to five wonderful children, ages 12 to 24, she found exercise as a way to relieve the stress of day to day life, and provided a personal outlet to regroup. Eventually the physical pain of strenuous exercise was too much for her to handle- running, weight lifting and dieting to match her program. During that time of realization, she started looking for something to take her on a different path, as the physical and emotional toll were taking her down, instead of uplifting her. Her personal life had become a rocky road of ups and downs, and the practices of the ancient arts of movement, meditation, self-reflection resonated with her. In these practices she found healing of mind, body and soul.

“My mission is to bring my students closer to experiencing their spirits through Yoga. By feeling the prana, life energy within, you get closer to the understanding that your are bigger than your body and that we are all connected. For me, that is the deeper practice, where Yoga reveals compassion, love peace and joy. I opened Wild Spirit because I wanted to create a Yoga studio where we can offer authentic, traditional classes and one-on-one training. Our classes are small and our hearts are big! Whatever brings you to your Yoga mat and which ever teacher you are drawn to, we want your experience in our studio to leave you feeling better than when you walked in.”

Naturally Nancy’s, Herbalist
Reiki Share, Sonny Seyler & variety of Reiki Master practitioners offering Reiki by donation.
Usi-Tibetan Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that has promoted healing for thousands of years. Rei- meaning Spiritual wisdom and Ki-meaning life energy. This is the same life energy the Chinese call Chi. It is that energy that nourishes organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When the flow of life energy is disrupted, it causes diminished functioning within the organs and tissues of the physical body. It is the disruption in the flow of Ki that is the main cause of illness. Reiki rebalances your life energy. It works with the energy flow of your body through the meridians and the chakras of your body. Reiki can never cause harm. It is a powerful healing and balancing practice that is very gentle.

Valentina Castro, Art Therapist, Theta Healing, Organagold Ganoderma Advocate
Art therapy is commonly used in the treatment of anxiety, depression and other mental and emotional problems; substance abuse and addictions; family and relationship issues; abuse and domestic violence; coping with disability or illness. Art therapy can be done individually or in groups. It can be performed in a single session (Workshop) or a series of sessions.
Creating art in itself is considered as a form of therapeutic self-expression. However, the formal use of art therapy typically includes analysis and interpretation of the meaning of what a person has created with the therapist and/or peers in a group situation. These analyzes can foster the discernment of what the work might reveal about the person’s life, goals, aspirations, feelings or needs.
