You want to get fit and healthy. You want that time to yourself to get in a quick workout. You want some happiness and calm in your life that you hear that fitness and yoga can provide. You want to eat healthy and feed your family healthy. Getting happy, fit, and healthy is NOT easy no matter how much you REALLY want it! I get it! Finding the time to work out, meditate, get to the grocery store, finding healthy foods, and cooking healthy meals is hard! When you have a job, kids, family, pets, etc. doing something for yourself is also hard and sometimes even feels selfish. I am here to tell you that YOU CAN DO IT! I have the solution!
I am Stephie Wharam wellness in the form of nutrition, fitness, yoga, and spirituality are my PASSIONS. After 5+ years of doing it all on my own I decided that I HAD to share my passion by way of helping others get happy, fit, and healthy in their own lives. Not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually! I am a 200 hour registered yoga teacher, I have been an Emergency Medical Technician for nearly 20 years; working on ambulances and in hospital, PiYo Instructor, Group Fitness Instructor, and soon to be working on a holistic health & nutrition coach certification and personal trainer. After nearly 20 years of working crazy long hours, rotating shifts, and precious holidays in the Emergency Medical Services/Healthcare field I learned how valuable it is for us to take care of ourselves FIRST in order for us to be able to show up and help take care of others.
Keeping in mind how your relationships, physical activity, career, and spirituality affects your overall wellness, I work with my clients several ways; through my online Wellness Community that covers at home workouts, nutrition advice, meal preparation, meal planning, and daily accountability assignments. I also work with clients through group and private PiYo and yoga classes that cover yoga asana, yoga philosophy, meditation, breathing techniques, yoga lifestyle, etc. If you are ready to get started, read over my tabs at the top of the page to find more details on taking care of YOUR needs.
UPDATE: February 2016- Since the original posting of this about section I have bought a home with my long term boyfriend and we are expecting a daughter April 2016. I am an “unofficial” step-mother to his 3 kids and this will be my first biological daughter. We have, according to many, and unconventional relationship as in we are not married, but committed just the same. You will see that my life, and therefore, this blog is undergoing some changes. You will see more family, parenting lifestyle posts, etc. in addition to the yoga, fitness, nutrition, spirituality, and over all wellness topics. When it comes to your wellness EVERYTHING in your life encompasses and plays a factor, so I find it important to include it all.
I would love to share with you my progression through the years. Please know that I was working out all those years, but it wasn’t until I found my love and passion for Yoga and Coaching with Beachbody that you see the difference.
My family, my world! My boyfriend and his 3 children, Christmas 2014.
A little before and after of all of us. The 2014 shows a family of 5 doing what we could in a little 2 bedroom apartment with 3 kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 rats. Then our first Christmas, 2015, in our new home with 3 almost 4 kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats, a gecko, some fish, and a guinea pig. We live on a lake and couldn’t be happier!
