Wellness Coaching Three Essentials
There are a few simple shifts you can make in your life that will help you disconnect from all the mental and physical toxins that keep you from being your best. These three wellness essentials are your starting point for this stage of your journey. They are game changers!
Let me Support Your Journey
If you are anything like me, you live a multi-dimensional complex life. You may be doing all the right things yet feel like you are not the bright light you have the potential to be.
At times being an aging gay man just feels tough!
You may struggle to find the right tools to support you physically, mentally and spiritually as you enter your wisdom years. You may have dabbled in a few shiny balls (figuratively not literally!) along the way. If you’ve found things that work figuring out the right mix can be elusive.
This is where I can help!
Three Wisdom Tradition Coaching
I offer individual and group coaching for gay men using the three wisdom traditions of yoga, Ayurveda and psychology. This is not your run-of-the-mill lifestyle coaching. From one gay man to another, I’m here to do more than motivate you.
My three decades of yoga practice, two decades of teaching yoga and Ayurveda, coupled with a soupcon of positive and cognitive behaviour-based psychology are a winning ticket to help you achieve your goals. I strive to bring clients to optimal wellness in their wisdom years.
Coaching sessions are geared to:
- Identify current issues
- Explore potential tools to address the issues
- Explore healing goals
- Jointly agree to a unique client protocol
- Assess progress
An initial self-assessment kicks off our work together.
Unique client protocols include tools from each of the wisdom traditions.
A wrap-around treatment plan, your home practice, is used to affect the progress between sessions.
You also receive access to hundreds of recorded complete yoga classes taught by Loren grouped in the following themes:
- Tantra Hatha
- Yoga Theory
- Yoga Nidra
And you get access to the Wellness Coaching Community Forum where you and other clients can post and share your thoughts and observations. Community is essential to your wellness journey, especially as we age.
Isolation kills, community heals!
Register for one of the coaching packages and you’ll also be invited to a weekly hour-long live session with Loren where you’ll be engaged on a number of topics and have time to ask questions while connecting with other gay men.
Hi, I’m Loren…
I'm here to share my years of study and practice to help you to become all you are meant to be.
With my coaching and guidance, you’ll access tools from the three wisdom traditions of yoga, Ayurveda and psychology to bring back balance and vitality to your life. You’ll learn to use these tools wisely and apply them with efficiency.
I’ll inspire you to find the deep, rich and rewarding satisfaction the three wisdom traditions continue to bring to my life.
I look forward to meeting you, working with you, and building a strong gay men's community very soon!
Using yoga, ayurveda and psychology to work toward developing self-regulation, adaptability and resiliency.
This is a bio-psycho-spiritual model of support created to weave together aspects of each of these healing traditions. It is a meeting of eastern and western concepts. There is an emphasis on creating an intentional community to support your journey as well. We gay men need to support and uplift each other.
Many of us have lost touch with a sense of who we are. We have symptoms ranging from anxiety to depression. Due to this confusion, pain and suffering, we find ourselves adrift.
The model develops a base from which you can begin to work to integrate and transform your life experiences, build self-worth and move toward self-evolution.
Through daily practice, you will find your way back home to yourself. Shining in your wisdom years is your right!
This is exciting work!
Yoga is more than physical, it’s metaphysical! Coaching includes both aspects. The goal here is to move you from your present level of functioning to a sattvic state - balance, ease, tranquillity and health. You’ll create an overall inspired state of mind. This is essential to aging. How wonderful is that!
Thinking patterns (samskaras) create a tendency (vasana) to make decisions or take actions (karma). Certain patterns create a narrow band of self-expression that can sometimes feel like there’s little breathing room. Various psychological theories are used in developing the tools for your wrap-around treatment plan. Changing patterns to change your future. Enter your wisdom years with intention.
Diet and lifestyle are used to balance your body and mind. This is essential to aging with grace. Tapping into the vital essence of prana (animating and nourishing lifeforce, tejas (self-worth and wise thinking), ojas (deep vitality, ability to enjoy life and durability) and agni (your digestive fire) we get rid of negativity, self-doubt, restlessness, fear, anger and grief. This is powerful work!
Basic Yoga Membership
Not interested in coaching at the moment? There are hundreds of recorded complete yoga classes available to support you. They are in archived by theme - Tantra Hatha, Theory, Wellness, Meditation, and Yoga Nidra.
Here's what students are saying about classes they've enjoyed!
I just did the Energy Reset practice - I really needed that right now. It was beautiful - energizing and so grounding. The kapalabhati breath at the end was such a great experience, where I really found that stillness and quietness in the mind. A beautifully balanced practice. Thank you Loren. Namaste.
About every 2 weeks I've been waking at 4 am and can't seem to get back to sleep. The Yoga Nidra for Sleep is saving me. I skip right to the 'get comfortable' part and listen to it and every time, I am able to fall back to sleep and what is best is that I wake up feeling so rested. It puts me into a deep deep healing sleep. The sleep app is proof! I'm grateful for this one at 4 am, that's for sure. Thanks Loren!
