The holidays should be about family and community but they so quickly become full of stressful meals, travel, and an elaborate juggling act keeping everyone happy. With all the busyness of the holidays you have the added stress of feeling like you have to constantly choose between an "unhealthy" choice (cookies) or a "healthy" choice (salad). But when you decide in advance what works for you you're not constantly struggling with what you should eat or not eat. You know when to indulge because you'll enjoy it and when not to because you will regret it.
You know what to do to be "healthy," but the holiday bells you hear ringing are just an invitation to eat more.
Together we will create your healthy living goal to smash during the holiday season. Then you will have 12 weeks of support and accountability so that you achieve that goal in a way that feels fun and still lets you enjoy the holidays.
You'll have me by your side through Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Years - whatever you celebrate.
Your health does NOT have to go to shit during the holidays. When you are clear on your intentions, having a healthier and more enjoyable holiday becomes effortless.
You have enough going on during the actual holidays so we will take the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's off (and you'll have the option to take other holidays off as well). During those times, you'll have my support so you don't eat ALL THE COOKIES, but you won't have any new exercises (or exercise). No new material will be released so you can concentrate on your healthy lifestyle choices and spending time with you family. We’ll create a lot of great memories together during the challenge but I want you to be able to create your own as well.
We begin on Monday, November 13 (I hate waiting for things to start).
What's so special about Healthy Holidays?
Instead of following strict meal plans with expensive ingredients and getting exercise videos you know you'll never do, I work directly with you to craft a plan that will work for YOU. Finally. Then I am your biggest cheerleader and challenger leading you through the steps to implement it.
At the end of the program you don't just tick off a box and go back "how you were." You're you, but that best version of you that you feel proud of.
I'll help you develop the mindset you need for long-term change and reducing negative self-talk.
We'll figure out a movement plan that feels fun and fits into your busy life (no gym membership required, unless you think gyms are super fun).

What if your holidays had less frazzle and more dazzle?
"With Maya's generous, gentle, enthusiastic help I did grow! I grew to understand myself better. I know now more about my relationship to sugar. I have become more mindful and disciplined about what and when I put food into my mouth. I am much more concretely aware of the balance/imbalances in my life. And, I have resources to address and ensure future growth as I leave Maya's program."

I know what it's like to feel like your life on a runaway train with no chance of slowing down and getting to make the changes you are desperate for.

"Coaching with Maya is priceless. Shifting gears from home to work was difficult and stressful at times, and Maya helped me understand my thoughts and feelings were valid.
Maya helped me to manage my time better and to adjust to an overall shift in mental perspective, which is what I gravely needed in order to achieve better work/life balance!"

Hey! I've run group coaching programs before and my clients have had amazing results. My clients are more focused and productive at work resulting in salary raises and promotions. They have better relationships with their spouses, partners and children because they are intentional with their time and energy. They lose weight, resolving long-standing health issues. I'd love the opportunity to help you achieve these same results (and probably more!).
Make the choice today to wake up in 12 weeks lighter, more energized and confident instead of feeling like the holidays hit you like a run away train and all you got were tighter jeans
