What’s next?  SESSION IT

 

Our holistic approach to optimal health and performance empowers you to discover your true potential.

 

Everything we do is about finding your freedom.

 

Why “Après”? Because “after” coaching, you will find your line.   

 

Inspired by riding mountains and surfing oceans, Après Coaching Sessions are a nod to the discipline and diligence necessary to master these epic environments, the freedom found in doing so, and the reward of post-excursion celebrations known as après-ski. Après Sessions, on and off the mountain, are holistic meaning an integrated whole experience.

 

Holistic health coaching considers the whole human system to spearhead what we find in the state of “flow” resulting in optimal performance and wellness in all realms of life.

Team Brain Function

Peak Performance

Changes in the brain function of your team for the better are necessary for neuro-chemicals to arise that push people into those amazing effortless places where everything else falls away and we are 100% honed in on the task at hand. We produce so much more at such at optimal level in these states. Why would you not want both you and your team to obtain this knowledge, know how, and quick daily implementation in order to meet peak performance desires?

These uber amazing neurochemicals are naturally occurring, after all.  They are ready and willing to take you, your team, your company, your family and friends, from where you are now to where you want to be. Learn how to further access them today.

Serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, endorphins, anandamide and oxytocin all play special roles. How can you alter your states each day, throughout the day, to optimally activate these guys? We are super geeked out on these tricks of the trade. Are you ready to commit to taking your team toward best performance in all realms of life? Session it.

Within social bonding specifically, norepinephrine and dopamine uphold and sustain “romantic love”, endorphins and oxytocin connect friend to friend like mother to child, anandamide and serotonin deepen feelings of openness, intimacy and trust. Flowing in combination, and in groups of people, these neurochemicals create not only tighter bonds, but also heightened co-operation and therefore co-creation.

Let’s all level up. Let’s Après.    

Be A Beginner

BeABeginner.jpg

Part of training your brain to find overall improvement requires being a beginner for life. Creating new neural pathways and leaving old pathways, patterns, samskaras behind involves several different life exercises including learning new skills. In doing so your brain takes note of and remembers the good attempts, while discarding the not-so-good attempts. Then, it recalls the last good pass, makes incremental adjustments, and progressively improves. Few minutes a day can go a long way.

Practice and all is coming. –K.Pattabhis Jois

WITH HEALTH COMES EVERYTHING ELSE /// ORGANIC LABELING

 
organic-food-nutrition

At Aprés Coaching, we really do believe that with health comes everything else. Not to say there are not other realms to be considered beyond nutrition and exercise. But it has been published time and time again, backed by science, that our gut is now considered our second brain. What you consume affects not only your physical body, but your mind and your emotions.

When you are eating well, you are clear-headed, potentially more aware of yourself as well as your words and actions, more productive, and simply feel good. This in turn affects yourself, your relationships, your career, your entire reality for the better.

Organic foods can be a stretch for many to understand, approach, and sometimes to make sense of financially. Holistic health coaches can arm you with information, answer your why’s, and look at all aspects of your life in order to tweak certain areas so that you can easily add in organics where you can.

Understanding labeling is a first step.  HERE, Whole Foods Market breaks down organic labeling, so that you can put your knowledge toward your buying power. Start where you are. Embrace change. Food is medicine. Be well.

 

RUN WITH WOLVES

 
run-intuition-rightbrain

While many within business and career are left-brain dominant, it is so refreshing to continually meet those also leaning into working from another realm. Those who collaborate, share, listen, learn, support and allow for that leftover percentage of space available after “I”, “You”, and “We”. The space where we not only co-author our experiences, but co-allow for a little more expansion.

Much like the saying about the gods laughing while you make plans…

We believe in planning, visualization and taking action. But while you dive deep into spreadsheets, networking events, claiming barely-there friendships, going super hard after potential clients until they formulate or oops disappear, doing what you know to be THE way because of what you were taught in school… are you actually shutting out another entire realm of possibility? By living and working solely from a place society deems civilized, we more often than not lose creativity and gain fear.

Get quiet and pretend you know nothing about anything. Listen. Listen deeply. To others. To yourself. What do you hear? Trust that.

A pack of wolves doesn’t have a plan per se. They run, they protect, they are intensely relational by nature and highly involved with their mates, their young, and their pack. Keen, sensing, playful, devoted. Loyal, hard-working, reliable, yet know when to rest. Diligent yet simultaneously BE-ing. Wolves adapt to constantly changing circumstances. They are deeply intuitive. As humans we have lost a sense of trust, trusting ourselves, and therefore one another. We have lost much in the way of elemental experience allowing for further cultivation of intuition. There is a re-wilding within all of us that desperately needs to take place in order to evolve and progress. While this is not a women-specific post, the book Women Who Run With Wolves comes to mind as we continue to collaborate with like-minded folks who understand that this is about oh so much more than anyone’s bottom line. You know who you are. Thank You. Thank you. Thank you.

Questions about running with wolves and running your team, family, and yourself toward peak-to-peak performance? #SessionIt

When seeking guidance, don't ever listen to the tiny-hearted. Be kind to them, heap them with blessing, cajole them, but do not follow their advice. -Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves
