Meet Coach Ashley
Grounded Pada Health is my vision for the future of health care. A future where YOU hold the keys to your healing! In my professional career as a Corporate Health and Wellness Coach, I’ve partnered with thousands of individuals all needing the same thing; to be seen, heard, and understood.
This pattern took me years to see.
My health journey started through exercise. Since I was a kid, I had been an athlete in every sport imaginable but as I entered college and then life after collegiate sports I quickly realized exercise was not enough to make me “healthy”.
I started eating better. Surely “diet and exercise” were enough to start my journey up the corporate ladder and succeeding in relationships and life. Years of salads and still something was missing.
I started to connect the dots.
I decided it was time to bridge physical health and the nourishment of my body with my mental outlook.
I went to a yoga class.
I stared at the clock the entire class. Between fidgeting and regretting my clothing choices; I felt nothing. I retreated home in despair. However, like a lightening bolt, I was so energized I did a month’s worth of cleaning in an afternoon.
A switch had flipped!
A few years later, I completed my Health Coaching and Yoga Teacher certifications. I felt more whole than ever before! With all of these dimensions sewn together my respect for myself grew. I found a new balance with work. I began to find peace in my relationships.
I thought: was “happiness” really this easy?
Step one: exercise regularly.
Step two: honor my temple with proper nutrition.
Step three: believe I am worth every second of this life.
Why then weren’t doctors prescribing yoga or apples at the rate they prescribed antidepressants?
I had stumbled onto something. I had to tell someone.
