in her voice: greta's story
seven years ago i became an english teacher; just one year later, i added the title “yoga instructor” to my identity. in that time, i’ve received another counterintuitive kind of education through my work as “educator” of girls + women.
as a writer + a teacher of writing, i’ve witnessed the profound power of words in shaping wellbeing on mental, emotional, social, + physical levels. similarly, my passion for movement as a yogi + a runner + my commitment to cultivating interpersonal connection have proven to me, time + time again, that a person’s happiness + health can be transformed through practices that do not have a place in our dominant disease-based medical model.
until duke integrative medicine.
through my training here, i discovered how to activate my own vision. in many ways, my own professional + personal journey up to this point has seen me seeking a role through which to share this simple magic; in integrative health coaching, i have found my life-work.
