Finding Your Dharma Later in Life

In this Changemaker Challenge Career Clarity Session, Carly Banks chats with Yoga Health Coach Lynda Spieser about finding your dharma later in life.

For 38 years, Lynda Spieser worked in facilities management for a national food company, leading a team of 20+ people in a deadline-based, high pressure environment. During that time, Lynda developed an autoimmune condition that manifested in her early 40s. She started to question the way she was living and working and took her first yoga class at the age of 55. The benefits were so profound that within two years, Lynda started teaching yoga so that she could share the benefits with others. From there, she went into yoga therapy training where she was introduced to the Body Thrive book. She read the book in one night and knew that it would shape the next phase of her career.

Lynda markets her yoga health coaching course to women 50 and over because she understands that transitional phase that they’re in and how the habits can help them mitigate that with grace and ease. Her program is called “CLAS: Clear Living Awake Space,” so named because the realization that she left no space in her day for herself was what led her to yoga and ayurveda. But that’s not the case anymore. Now in her 60s, Lynda is living her dharma on her own terms and she’s enjoying her journey!

  • 0:00 – For 38 years, Lynda Spieser worked in facilities management for a national food company, leading a team of 20+ people in a deadline-based, high pressure environment. During that time, Lynda developed an autoimmune condition that manifested in her early 40s. She started to question the way she was living and working and took her first yoga class at the age of 55. The benefits were so profound that within two years, Lynda started teaching yoga so that she could share the benefits with others. From there, she went into yoga therapy training where she was introduced to the Body Thrive book. She read the book in one night and knew that it would shape the next phase of her career.
  • 5:33 – Upon joining the Body Thrive course, the first thing Lynda realized was how sleep deprived she had been. The difference in the way she feels now compared to how she felt before she started practicing the habits is profound. The skin condition caused by her autoimmune disease is 80% resolved, but it didn’t happen overnight. She’s learned to appreciate slow, small steps, and she’s learned to enjoy the journey.
  • 9:20 – The longer we’ve been practicing “bad” habits, the longer it takes for us to get the full benefit of better habits. That’s why Body Thrive is a year-long course with multiple iterations. With each round of the course, growth occurs in both breadth and depth. Although Lynda is over 60 years old, she’s in awe of quickly the body responds to better habits.
  • 11:20 – Behavioral science plays a big role in Yoga Health Coaching. Identity evolution is a huge part of Body Thrive. When you start to see yourself differently, you start to behave differently.
  • 13:30 – In her previous career, Lynda had been coaching groups. Now she combines the skills she developed there with the skills she learned in Yoga Health Coaching to teach something that is meaningful to her. In fact, we all bring previously developed skills to our coaching, and it seems to many of us that everything we’ve done and learned up to this point has been preparing us to coach the habits.
  • 15:37 – Lynda markets to women 50 and over because she understands that transitional phase that they’re in and how the habits can help them mitigate that with grace and ease. Her coaching program is called “CLAS: Clear Living Awake Space,” so named because the realization that she left no space in her day for herself was what led her to yoga and ayurveda.

 

Favorite Quotes:

  • “YHC has very much given me permission to take my time and let it unfold.” — Lynda Spieser
  • “Much of what pointed me in the direction of yoga and ayurveda was realizing that I left no space in my day. And I was preprogrammed the whole time. So I was living on the surface of feeling and sensing.” — Lynda Spieser

 

Guest BIO:

 I experienced overwhelm, a component of which was the corporate environment. Coincidentally, I designed, built and managed corporate office work environments for over 25 years. I am uniquely positioned to see the challenges through both lenses AND to coach individuals to a more spacious place and business to support that shift by enhancing their environments. I understand the pull towards success AND I know that getting there is facilitated by taking care, body and mind, today to be productive and thriving tomorrow.

I am excited to also bring clear living awake space to individuals in their homes. Connect with Lynda on her website and facebook page.
