Two Yoga Health Coaches Talk About “Body Thrive”

In this Changemaker Challenge Career Clarity Session, Carly Banks sits down with Yoga Health Coach Colleen Hieber about the prerequisite to Yoga Health Coaching: Body Thrive.

Body Thrive is the prerequisite to Yoga Health Coaching, and it is the model we learn to coach. Prior to Body Thrive, Colleen was overwhelmed – teaching a lot of yoga and bartending at night into the early morning hours and sleeping til noon. Dinner was often between 9 and 10 pm and getting out of bed in the morning was really difficult.

The first habit of Body Thrive (Earlier, Lighter Dinner or “ELD”) was the hardest habit for Colleen. ELD often involves a whole recalibration of family values and long-held habits and beliefs. To get it to work, she had to change her schedule, which is the case for a lot of us. There were also some emotional and compulsive eating factors that she needed to address. Her conclusion is that there is always a workaround for any of the habits that challenge us.

Each habit is very simple, but emotional issues and self-sabotage  issues often get in our was, which is why we need the support of group. If you suspect you might need the support of a group.

Favorite Quotes:

“There’s always a workaround [for Earlier, Lighter Dinner], but the workaround was like a “come-to-Jesus” moment: That schedule does not work. I think that’s the hard truth. You hear people talk about what their schedule is and how they can eat dinner and you’re just like, ‘Well there’s a part of that that’s going to have to change.’ And we dance around it a little bit, but that’s what ends up happening.” — Colleen Hieber

“Every single one of the habits is so simple. . . . The reason we why we have to go through these programs in a group and have all this accountability is because of that emotional bit and that self sabotage bit and that discounting bit and our crazy amounts of justifications we come up with for why we CAN’T do the thing. When at the end of the day, something has to change.” — Carly Banks

 

Guest BIO

Colleen Hieber. As a professional dancer, I was first drawn to Yoga as a reliable method for physical therapy that I could practice on my own. Eventually, Yoga became so much more – I was hooked to its alignment principles, philosophy, mindfulness, and meditation. I also found a community of people on a similar path to personal growth. I made teaching Yoga my path in life, after experiencing the healing power of this practice, during a particularly traumatic event. I have never looked back. It is the greatest gift to share this practice with students and new teachers.

Currently, I am leading Yoga Alliance approved 200-Hour Yoga teacher trainings at Spectra Yoga in Costa Mesa, CA and 85-Hour Ma Yoga® Prenatal Teacher Trainings internationally throughout the year.

I have a deep and abiding call to bring the teachings of yoga to all different types of people. The lessons of yoga are universal. There is an innate intelligence and inherent power in the human body that is both accessible and transformational. I can give you the tools to dig deep and realize the power of grace.
