about becky nagle
I am a Pharmacist-turned-Health Coach and Yoga Teacher.
I spent more than 30 years in health care working with pharmacists, doctors, and patients to prevent medication errors and side effects that could be serious, even deadly. Because it is often easier to prevent a problem than solve a problem, I went into health coaching and yoga to prevent or manage diseases that lead to taking medications in the first place.
Additionally, I have a family history of diabetes, heart disease, and cancer and carrying extra weight was not going to help me avoid disease and would likely make them a reality. I wanted to avoid a future full chronic disease, pain, prescriptions, expense, disability, and a shorter life.
I went to Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) for health coaching to learn nutrition and stress management to help others and myself avoid diseases associated with obesity and chronic stress.
As I went deeper into studying health and disease prevention, I recognized movement was just as important as what you put into mouth. Mobility and flexibility are essential to longevity, disease prevention, and living well. I found Yoga Mechanics, in Montclair, NJ where I practiced then studied anatomy, biomechanics, and alignment based hatha yoga and become a 500 RYT Yoga Teacher.
If you are reading this chances are you are interested in getting well or staying there. Need help? I have been on both sides of the fence. I have coached and I have been coached. Coaching helped me make greater progress and make changes stick.
Anyone can lose weight or make some hard changes. The hardest part is maintaining them. Some habits are hard to maintain. When I start to slide backwards, I rely on coaching to get me back on track. Coaching provides perspective and accountability that you but don't always have working on your own.
Good luck on your journey!
Have a great day and may you always be well,
about getting 2 well
My philosophy is simple…
A healthy mind and body requires that you sleep well, eat well, and move well. Unfortunately, the simple formula is easier said than done. It can seem impossible when our busy lives cause us to lose sleep and move less and the “Standard American Diet (SAD), is just, for lack of a better word, “sad.”
The good news is there are many ways to get well or stay well. A one-size-fits-all approach does not work. Knowledge and experimentation will help you find what works best for you to get you where you want to go.
