Jaymie Meyer and Resilience for Life
What I love most about my work is the uniqueness of each individual. Since no two people are the same, working with clients to find their next best steps is a stimulating and inspiring collaboration. This holds true whether I’m working 1:1 with individuals or presenting to groups.
Change is difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. Establishing new habits is a science – not a ‘hit or miss’ process. Once my clients begin to understand how to witness behavioral and mental patterns and start to employ simple yet powerful mind/body techniques, exciting transformations often occur.
I founded Resilience for Life® 17 years, ago and have worked with thousands of people from age 16 to 82. Most frequently, I serve women in mid-life who have any combination of concerns including: stress, insomnia, back pain, weight gain, cancer, depression, heart disease, menopausal symptoms, MS, OCD, osteoarthritis, pain, post heart attack, post-operative, scoliosis, anxiety, balance issues, CAD, high BP, IBS, intellectual disability, migraine headaches, osteoporosis, and sinusitis.
It’s important to note that in my role as a coach and Yoga Therapist, I am not a medical practitioner. The work I do treats the whole individual, not conditions. The wisdom of an holistic approach is that all aspects of the individual are addressed. Thus, even if a condition cannot be cured from a western perspective, states of mind and quality of life frequently improve. I am always available to consult with a healthcare provider if required or requested.
Among the first to be certified by the National Board of Medical Examiners as a credentialed Health & Wellness Coach, I am also a certified Stress Management Specialist, a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT), an ACC credentialed coach through the International Coach Federation, a HeartMath® trainer and an Ayurveda Health Educator.
I’ve presented Resilience for Life Stress Reduction workshops and HeartMath Resilience Advantage workshops to groups at the National Institutes for Health, IBM, Columbia University, Panasonic, Stanford University Graduate School, the Arthritis Foundation and many other companies and institutions. The newest addition to my portfolio of offerings is the Prime-Time Health c-Course.
I also work as a spokesperson and educator for Humana and served for 2 years as a member of the Dr. Dean Ornish faculty, working as a Stress Management Specialist for his program for Reversing Heart Disease. I also acted as Co-Chair of the National Speakers Association Health and Wellness PEG and coordinated and hosted monthly health and wellness seminars.
For the past 10 years, as a Senior Faculty for the Integral Yoga Academy, I’ve co-taught Stress Management Teacher Trainings in VA, NY and SF. I also serve on faculty for Raja Yoga Teacher Trainings.
It’s a joy and a privilege to inspire people to create sustainable healthy lifestyles, to reduce stress and to age optimally.
