New Health Coaching Program
Thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, we are excited to announce our new Health Coaching Program, which will enable selected Bounty & Soul participants to embark on a 12 week journey to holistic well-being. Our two certified health and wellness coaches, Valerie Holbert and Christine Elliot, will be working one on one with participants, supporting and assisting them in creating and achieving personal goals. They will also lead group classes to create a network of support and community. Health coaches are professionally trained, caring counselors that work with participants to explore specific concerns and discover the tools needed for a lifetime of balance. Part of this grant will also allow for the continued expansion of our partnership with the Yoga Service Movement, including additional yoga resources and monthly health and wellness presentations by Danielle Rottenberg, a certified Ayurveda Yoga Practitioner and Aromatherapist.
