Jaymie Meyer and Resilience for Life
For the past 17 years, through my business Resilience for Life®, I’ve educated thousands of people in stress reduction, resilience and healthy aging.
I’m a certified HeartMath and New Life Story Coach with multiple certifications in stress management, Ayurveda, and yoga therapy. I show clients how to build sustainable, healthy habits to support mind/body integration and self-regulation.
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.
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’ve worked with people from age 16 to 82. But most frequently, I serve women in mid-life who have any combination of concerns including: stress, insomnia, back pain, 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, pancreatitis, 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 a 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.
In addition to my private practice, I’ve had the opportunity to present Resilience for Life Stress Reduction programs and HeartMath Resilience Advantage Workshops to groups at the National Institutes for Health, IBM, Columbia University, Panasonic, Stanford University Graduate School, the Arthritis Foundation as well as many other companies and institutions.
I’ve worked as a spokesperson and educator for Humana and am currently a member of the Dr. Dean Ornish faculty, working as a Stress Management Specialist for his program for Reversing Heart Disease. I also served as Co-Chair of the National Speakers Association Health and Wellness PEG and coordinated and hosted monthly health and wellness seminars.
As a Senior Faculty for the Integral Yoga Academy, for the past 10 years I’ve co-taught their Stress Management Teacher Training in VA, NY and SF.
It’s a joy and a privilege to inspire people to create sustainable, healthy lifestyles, reduce stress and increase resilience. As a firm believer in the concept of life-long learning I consistently seek new opportunities to learn and grow.
