APRÈS

Après Sessions embrace embodied and progressive practices. Holistic Health. Train Your Brain. Find Your Freedom.

 

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.

WHAT IS HOLISTIC HEALTH COACHING?

holistic-health-coaching

Health coaching is still a new industry and much like yoga, there are many related styles without a truly unifying alliance yet in place.  That being said, when the coaching is described as “holistic”, “integrative” or related, it is referencing integrating all realms of life. Holistic refers to the whole; an intimate interconnectedness of all parts explicable only by referencing the whole. We are of course speaking on the human experience - body, mind, emotion, spirit - spirit can be substituted with whatever works for you from a specific religion to nature.

Health coaching is an industry on the rise given the state of our nation’s health and healthcare system. Health coaches are not doctors, therapists, or nutritionists per se although the practice holds strong components from all three. We support these professions, in many cases working alongside them, as well as referring out to them as necessary.

So what happens within a coaching session? Holistic health coaching means we are looking at all realms of life to find areas we can tweak to benefit the whole….

health

movement of body 

food and water

sleep

home environment

relationships

social life

spirituality (insert your own vocabulary)

creativity

finances

career

continuing education

overall joy

We are looking at root causes of disease or lack of well-being, preventing or healing that, rather than slapping a Band-Aid on the byproduct for temporary relief. For the coach, sessions include deep deep listening to the client often beyond what the client is actually saying. What does this mean?? Well, some folks want a coach to be specialized in order to supposedly understand what exactly they do and what exactly the outcome will be. Commonly heard: “I want to lose weight.”. Commonly thought: "This person will give me the magic combination of diet, nutrition, cleanse, green juice and exercise which will for sure help me lose weight." While all of these will certainly assist and often remedy an issue, many times a deficiency in an area seemingly unrelated is actually the missing link.

Digging deeper, and this happens quite often, the client eventually finds that a certain person in their life, friend, relative, or partner is actually causing tremendous stress, turmoil, obsessive thought, and all related emotions leading to a severe lack of wellbeing expressing itself through additional weight, that annoying skin condition, chronic fatigue, and so on. These conditions then will not go away by adding more vegetables to one’s plate. In fact, when a force to be reckoned with is sucking energy, it’s really hard to eat more vegetables!! So once we get to the root cause, we work with the client on THAT realm. And then the magic happens.

Holistic health coaches listen, support, guide, teach, coach, consult, deduce, heal, and inspire change in mind, body, thought, leading to transformation - taking you from where you are right now to where you want to be.

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.

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
