Get To Know Mikaela
Philosophy Behind Coaching
Knowing the difference between pain and discomfort when it comes to mindful movement. Finding that balance, checking the ego, and knowing when to hold back/not push yourself versus knowing when to lean into the discomfort of something different (deep strength sensation or deep stretch sensation) that is meant to shift your perspective. Bringing deep awareness into every shape, every transition, every breath.
