I’m Ashley Overholt, CNP. I teach yoga and I love to guide people along their path towards optimal health. I think wellness is so much more than just the foods we eat. It also includes our emotional health, our spiritual health and lifestyle choices.
I encourage everyone to listen to what their body is telling them:
Listen to those emotions we all tend to ignore; they are telling you something.
Acknowledge that feeling that something ‘isn’t quite right’; trust your body’s intelligence.
I want you to walk the path your true nature intended.
I was brought up to have a more holistic mindset, but didn’t truly embrace my path until life threw me some curve balls:
I was a working interior designer by age 21, and was burnt-out by age 23. I dreamed of teaching yoga even before I finished college. Instead, I listened to everyone’s advice to give it a few more years (just a few more years). Because I ignored my health and my true calling, I battled with depression, had suicidal thoughts and experienced severe appendicitis flare ups for years before it was finally diagnosed and removed.
I was unconscious, making unconscious choices and I wasn’t happy.
Let me tell you this: All of your choices matter, so choose them wisely. I hope to be part of your journey to help you make those choices that will make a difference in your life.
All of our choices either bring us closer to health or farther away from it. I want you to learn that health and wellness is not just a concept you strive for, but can become your natural state of being.
Conscious health means choosing health. It means choosing health with understanding, awareness, intention, and vision. Conscious health is the active and deliberate creation of a vital body, mind, and spirit, with full knowledge, understanding, and belief…
