Hello dear friends
I am writing to let you know of my new online home; YK Well+Being, a virtual space where I am in service to inspire and empower you to cultivate your radiant wellbeing.
Some of you know me from my two books ‘The Yoga Kitchen’ & ‘The Mandala Kitchen’ (Jacana Media) or perhaps you have been on retreat with me, attended one of my workshops, or practiced yoga and Pilates with me.
Books, nutrition & food inspiration…
Throughout my well+being journey I have loved sharing my recipes with my clients in my two books and through blogging.
My food philosophy is informed by Ayurveda, the importance of food-combining, gut-health, and blood sugar balancing. I will continue to share my plant-based recipes and nutritional guidance via www.yogakitchencoach.com as well as a coaching tool to help you harness your best health.
Take time to pause & reflect with me…
Taking time out to pause, reflect and re-balance is an important element in our quest to live a healthier and happier life. Choosing a Well+Being Retreat is an opportunity to intentionally cultivate renewed clarity, purpose, and energy to take home and infuse into your life.
I have created 2 blissful retreat experiences in 2023 – for more information navigate to https://ykwellbeing.com/retreats/
Since entering my 40’s, I have been exploring some important personal questions. Questions such as ‘what does my ultimate holistic wellbeing look like now, and what gives me real purpose and makes me feel connected to my highest self? After deep enquiry, learning, and inner work, the resounding answer to that question for me is to take care of myself in a holistic way, and to use that ingoing energy to serve others. Service to my children, my friends, and my clients. In response to my intention to serve more effectively, I have trained to become a health coach to facilitate this holistic wellbeing journey for others ~ www.ykwellbeing.com is where you will find more information on how I can support you.
As a health coach my job is to explore some important wellbeing questions which can guide you to your highest self-expression, help you find your true purpose, and identify your (deeply personal) wellbeing vision. You will make time to pause, reflect, eat-, move, play, work, and rest mindfully. You will make space for the thoughts & practices that matter—the ones that tell you what you want and need to fulfil your wellbeing vision.
Health coaching examines the larger picture of your life to focus on areas that require change and redefinition:
What can a health coach offer you?
• cultivating a positive mindset
• uncover barriers that have held you back in the past
• managing and minimizing stress
• how you organize your life and relationships
• you may want to address your weight, or relationship with food & exercise
• emotional and mental wellbeing
• and very importantly (this is the key to transformation) the relationship you have with yourself
Lets work together…
My role as a coach is to unconditionally hold space for you, to support, love and trust you until you can love and trust yourself on the path to your best wellbeing. The truth is that wellbeing (physiological, emotional and spiritual) cannot be unlocked until we truly (and compassionately) love and trust ourselves to identify and implement our wellbeing practices.
To get in touch (I would love to hear from you), learn more about the coaching programs I offer, as well as my retreat’s scheduled for the coming year, please navigate to my new website www.ykwellbeing.com
In dedication to your well+being journey
What my clients say…
“Marlien offers the opportunity to reflect and make changes to the way you view your health and wellness. Through reflective coaching sessions she has helped me uncover what health and wellness means specifically to me. She is also very knowledgeable about her subject matter and able to offer sage and practical advice when tackling diet and physical changes you would like to make. I highly recommend that you take this journey with Marlien and reap the benefits of incorporating health and wellness thinking into your routine and daily life” Maryke Snyman
“Marlien’s retreats are something everyone deserves to treat themselves to. I left feeling so nourished, relaxed and calm. My only regret was not adding an extra two nights stay after the retreat for some additional moments of relaxation to nourish myself. Thank you for such a healing weekend.” Jennifer Kanyumna
Testimonial for Marlien Wright
Marlien is an extremely caring, gifted and intuitive Health Coach who offers so much more than advice on diet and exercise. She has an incredibly deep knowledge and understanding of holistic wellness and healing – and during our sessions together, her gentle guidance brought me to a place where I truly understood and learnt the importance of ‘embodiment’ and ‘self-compassion’ for the first time, as well as many other tools and techniques that I believe will hugely benefit my all-round health journey in the years to come. I would highly recommend Marlien to anyone who is looking to empower themselves on all levels, and who is willing to dig deep and expand their self-awareness, with a non-judgemental and compassionate companion/coach alongside you on your journey.
