Mafalda is a healer, holistic coach & PT.
Here is her story:
From a young age sport and fitness has been an integral part of my life as an athlete. Even though I was always fit and disciplined, I struggled with body image and confidence issues stemming from the need to be perfect and in control. I began burning out, anxious and stressed from training too extreme but that was all I knew, thinking I was healthy.
However, after going through a bad break up and developing depression at the age of 23 I knew I had to change my ways by ceasing self-sabotage patterns and sought out help in order to create balance and a healthy lifestyle. That is when I appointed a personal trainer/wellness coach and with regular strength training I began to feel good because I became stronger, more positive and present.
Thinking I had it all under control life again took a turn in my late 20’s as I experienced another personal trauma which triggered depression and regular training wasn’t enough anymore. I turned to spirituality intuitively and found additional ways to manage my health and wellbeing, I incorporated holistic modalities such as energy healing(reiki), kinesiology, yoga and acupuncture. Not to say these methods are for everyone but I knew I didn’t want to take the clinical western route and from regular training and new holistic regime I am now able to be and operate at my best (most of the time).
My drive and motivation is now to help, support and empower others to be their best.
