Jennifer at Springfield College

Over the past 4+ years growing Lean and Green Body® I have created several amazing opportunities for myself and my company. I have been able to check items off my bucket list that I wasn’t sure were even possible! It’s been incredible, and my brand only keeps expanding and growing in the most inspiring ways.

A little back story on my newest (possibly biggest) opportunity yet…

When I was 16 years old I had already decided what I wanted to create for my life, and I wasn’t afraid to go after it.

I wanted to be an Athletic Trainer (sports medicine for those unfamiliar with the title) with a master’s degree and a minor in nutrition. My goal was to not only care for my clients and athletes, but also to educate them. My dream was to attend Springfield College, at that time it was ranked the best Athletic Training program in the country. Thousands of students applied, and only 25 were accepted… and approximately only 12 would graduate the program. These numbers did not deter me, they inspired me.

I connected with Springfield College, not only because it was the best in the country for my field, but because their philosophy was MIND-BODY-SPIRIT. I have connected with this philosophy for decades now, and understand the concept of it far before my time. I wanted to open a business and treat clients & athletes, and honor their mind, body and spirit. I wanted to give my to my community, and help those who are less fortunate. From day one I have always wanted to help people, to be a positive light in their life, and make a difference in their life.

I am proud to say that I have achieved most of what I set out to achieve, pivoting along the way. I not only was accepted early decision to Springfield College, but made dean list every semester. I graduated in the top of my class, with that minor in nutrition I had dreamed about.

I pivoted my dream, and my schooling, towards nutrition after graduation. I have since completed 2 additional nutrition programs. I am currently working on my 4th and “final” nutrition program, and in 2020 I will graduate and be a Board Certified Holistic Nutritionist.

This is all a dream. Every late night, every exam, has led me to this point today.

Today I run a thriving health & wellness business… with the main goal of helping my clients achieve their goals, being a positive light in their life, and making a difference in my greater community. The mission I set out to achieve at 16 years old still holds true today.

In January 2019 I was approached by Springfield College to collaborate with them on a few events. A proud alumni I was delighted to be involved in dinners and events. The biggest opportunity came when the college asked to fly me up to Springfield to give a talk on entrepreneurship, building a successful brand, and pivoting my degree. I was honored! *cue imposter syndrome* This was a dream!

I am excited to announce that I will be flying up to Boston, and will be giving multiple talks over TWO days to various classrooms and groups at Springfield College. I will be the lead speaker at the October 30 Fit Over Forty event, and will be discussing “A holistic approach to living your most balanced life”. One day two I will be speaking to various classrooms on how to pivot your degree and launch a successful company.

This is all still so surreal to me, and much more than my 16 year old self could have dreamed of. My advice to you is simple… find something you love, find a reason, and go for it. It doesn’t matter what the odds are, if you want something bad enough you will find a way to make it happen.

Reach for your dreams, and don’t stop until you get there.

Guided Pranayama Meditation

Meditation | Lean and Green Body®

In the dictionary, pranayama simply means the regulation of the breath through certain techniques and exercises. 

Prana = breath or vital energy

Ayama = control

Pranayama, or breath control, was first mentioned in yoga literature as a breathing practice around 700 BCE. 

Pranayama has many benefits for both our physical body and our mind. This breathing practice has been known to decrease stress, lower tension and anxiety while relaxing the mind. Pranayama has also been known to help lower blood pressure and restore elasticity of the lungs, great for those with breathing conditions such as asthma. This type of breathing practice induces a meditative state and quiets the mind, allowing for healing and true peace to take place. 

I will guide you through a brief pranayama exercise, simply click the link below!

Namaste,
