“I wasn't sure if it was the best or worst time to start Radiant Body. I was in the midst of an intense travel season for work, mothering a toddler, and my husband was starting a new, demanding job. I was a bit dubious, but I was willing to give it a shot. I desperately needed a way to focus on my health and self-care. I wasn't so familiar with the content of the course, but as our birth doula and yoga instructor, I was familiar with Jamie's skills as a facilitator. She's grounded, calm, has a great sense of humor, listens deeply, mirrors insightfully...and she's great at meeting you where you are and working from there, abolishing all my tendencies toward guilt.
I found camaraderie with the other participants, and I also heard my own story reflected back in many ways. I learned tips and tricks, and received encouragement and affirmation, as well as accountability. Working within a group was effective.
Some deep ruts were hit during this course, as I ran up against old patterns and habits that haven't served me well. I got discouraged...and I made some major progress. There was room for it all in the space that Jamie's able to hold. She worked to support me through the fullest spells of life and I was able to ride the waves with Jamie offering achievable goals and setting me up for success, which motivated me.
It's been two months since I finished the course and I can say that I actually have new, healthy habits that have been incorporated into my daily routine! In addition, I have tools to create new ones for myself going forward. It turned out it was a good time to begin Radiant Body. I was able to build habits that helped me during challenging times, and now that there's some reprieve, I have a foundation to practices to deepen into. This is one of the best things I've done for myself (and, ultimately, my family) in a while.”
