Life and Integrative Health

Coach and Mentor specializing in life long wellbeing, Licensed Teacher at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Certified Gluten Practitioner, Satori Flow QiGong Instructor and Author of Vague Memories and Stripes.

My mission is to encourage you to  meet your needs, to take good care, grow intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, develop strength and vitality in the body through movement, breath, mindfulness, condition appropriate healthy habit,  meaningful conversations and engage in restorative, calming and rejuvenating practices and rituals. My coaching style is educational and highly experiential designed to make you feel good immediately and inspire you to know better so that you can do better throughout all life stages.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Intervention. Prevention. Purpose.

Healthy for Life coaching focuses on long term physical and emotional wellbeing throughout all life stages, life visioning, education and healthy aging on your terms.

During our time together we focus on current state of health and wellbeing and address it through lifestyle modifications, creation of pro-life habits in all areas and adjustment of the belief system to match the desired outcome and support.

As we age, our main, highly preventative issues we face are cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, immobility, stiffness and Alzheimer’s, some of which take thirty years to form. Taking care of any issues today will affect the quality of our life, our longevity, autonomy and financial stability.

Healthy for Life is a true body, mind and spirit approach to bring more health, ease and joy into life under any circumstances.

Individual sessions are conducted virtually, over camera call.

For small group sessions with your friends, at home visits within Northern suburbs of Chicago or women get together, or to schedule a brief conversation please contact me here.

So much love, kindness, smile, willingness to help, to distance yourself… in one person! Every change has a beginning. Your: “nice to meet you Monika” was it!
I heard recently – “Change gently the flight direction of another human without undercutting his wings” Joanna you are doing doing it!!! How wonderful to watch it every day. How wonderful to know I have you!
With great humility and gratitude in my heart thanks you.

Working with Joanna and Anna has been an amazing experience. They are very different, but complete as a team.
In my case, I’ve worked in the corporate business, as an employee, for more than 20 years and hired them to help me launch my own business as a health coach.
They helped me see that I was creating my boundaries and every single thing that happens in my life is my TOTAL responsibility. At first, it can sound overwhelming, but in the end, it is freeing.
As an entrepreneur, I am learning that success comes from the courage to get in touch with my fears and trespass them.
As coaches, they are always there to guide me, to alert me and to push me, when needed. They are cleaning my vision and making me feel secure.
My business is already a success!

Thank you, ladies! You are the best.

Being a college student, you don’t really hear people talking about health coaches or anything like that. It’s definitely not the norm but I am really grateful that I have the two amazing health coaches.

I feel like I’m learning things from them that most college students don’t really know. Based on the people that I have met, a lot of them don’t know how to take care of themselves. I’m learning life skills from them that can help me all my life.

It’s a little awkward being with a group of people, going out to eat and being one of the only people that isn’t getting something deep fried or unhealthy. I’ve learned to deal with it and ignore the criticism that I sometimes get since I’m bettering myself.
