My purpose and passion is to help others live an active and healthy lifestyle to help them be the best version of themselves.
Meet Roxanne, Professional Health Coach
Health and wellness have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, too. Growing up, I was always either running around outside with family and friends or playing organized sports. Through the years, I was introduced to the mind, body, and spirit connection and realized that to have optimal health, I needed to balance my life in all these areas, not just the physical realm.
A long-time yoga practitioner, I yearned to take my practice a step further and learn more deeply about yoga as a connection to mind, body, and spirit instead of just the physical practice I had come to know. So I traveled to Rishikesh, India, the renowned birthplace of yoga, to study Eastern medicine, meditation, and yoga practices under the gurus themselves.
As a lifelong learner, I still craved more knowledge and actionable steps to live my optimal life. So I decided to study holistic health coaching, to not only help myself become a better version of myself but to also spread my knowledge to a world filled with others wanting to improve their lives as well. I received my training from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods. I now love supporting others in a way that helps them become the best version of themselves in mind, body, and spirit.
“Using the techniques and approaches suggested by Roxanne, I have started to achieve the balance I’ve sought; it will definitely be a process, but in particular, I’ve started taking more time for myself without feeling as guilty about it as I previously had, and have also worked tiny changes into my day-to-day life that have started to make a difference. I would highly recommend Roxanne if you’re looking for a friendly, knowledgeable professional who is truly passionate about seeing you succeed, whatever your goals may be.” Marlo Iverson, St. Louis, MO

The Benefits of a Balanced Lifestyle
The ultimate goal of healthy living is to have a balance in your life that leaves you fulfilled and happy. All aspects of our life won’t always be in balance because inevitably there will be times in which you will focus on one part of your life over another, but to have them all in line is key.

Better Body Image and Happiness
Focusing inward during yoga helps you be more satisfied with your body and less critical of it. Additionally, one hour of yoga increases levels of depression-fighting chemicals in the brain by 27%.
When you hold poses for an extended period, you’re improving your balance, range of motion, and concentration.
Practicing yoga a few times a week increases muscle strength and flexibility by stretching out your muscles ligaments and tendons, boosts endurance, and tunes up your heart, lungs, and blood vessels.
Mindfulness developed through yoga can make you more sensitive to cues of hunger and fullness, which help you develop a more positive relationship with food. Yoga also promotes weight loss by stimulating the liver, activating the thyroid gland, and creating the right pH balance.
