"I love sharing my knowledge and experiences with others!
With passion and enthusiasm, I take my workshops throughout the Province so that instructors can get their CECs at their doorstep. Living in the Northwest of BC for many years, I know it can be challenging for the instructor to get their yearly CECs.
As a compassionate team member and leader, mentor and coach, I encourage and support personal and professional growth for all to succeed, sharing how to create a balance encompassing fitness, health, and wellness"

Goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about your ideal future and for motivating yourself to turn your vision of this future into reality. Setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life and ultimately achieve them!
What strategies do you apply to overcome barriers to setting goals?
Do you often find yourself “drowning” in many thoughts? Sometimes not knowing which way to turn or feeling in a fog? Goals without action are empty dreams; actions turn dreams into goals. Even if we miss our goals, it does not make us a failure; it only means we have to replan to accomplish our target.
Goals must be S.M.A.R.T. and balanced. My 7 step system will help you get a clearer picture in your mind of what you need to do to bring you closer to your goals. Together we will identify what you REALLY want and learn how to inspire yourself through the Art of B.A.L.A.N.C.E. 2 hours
"Thank you, Rhona, for your presentation to the Vernon Retired TEacher's Association.
It was interesting, interactive, informative, and appropriate for an audience of age 60+. It was also entertaining. The use of the balloons to illustrate points about breathing, exercise and posture were inspiring!
There was something for everyone..."
