Posted by Taylor Jablonowski on 2/21/19 3:00 PM

“As cliche as it sounds, I truly cannot believe I get to do what I love each day,” Taressa Riazzi, Hypnotherapist and Life Coach, tell us.

It used to be a very different story for Taressa. Prior to her healing journey, she was struggling through a challenging time; doing her best to be a stay-at-home mom while battling significant depression and debilitating anxiety. After realizing that putting everyone’s needs ahead of her own was having a negative impact on her emotional landscape, she knew something had to change.

“I originally was drawn to Southwest Institute of Healing Arts for the nutrition program,” she tells us, “however, after I experienced hypnosis and saw the impact it had on me and those I worked with, I decided to primarily practice hypnosis and life coaching.

Heal the Healer: Do You Need Some S.O.U.L C.A.R.E?

Posted by Taylor Jablonowski on 11/12/18 2:00 PM

Healers are highly sensitive, which is why they’re so drawn to dedicating their lives to helping others! 

However, if you’ve been spending a lot of energy focused on the healing of others, you may be pushing through warnings from your own system that something is off.

Signs that you may need to pause and do some S.O.U.L C.A.R.E include:

  • Your personal to-do list is a mile long
  • You haven’t been sleeping or eating well
  • Your schedule is not a reflection of your priorities
  • You’ve had limited alone time lately
  • Your body is inexplicably ill or in pain
  • Your physical space is cluttered and disorganized
  • Your emotions have begun calling the shots
  • You feel like you’re operating on auto-pilot

Yoga Body Psychology is Not Your Average Asana. It's Science!

Posted by Taylor Jablonowski on 11/1/18 2:00 PM

Our bodies are filled with electrical and chemical impulses that keep our brain and body in constant communication. Most of the time, we actively decipher the information and can quickly interpret it. A common example of this is when we accidentally touch a hot surface, our body moves itself away without a conscious thought to do so.

Posted by Taylor Jablonowski on 9/27/18 2:00 PM

Yoga Body Psychology is not your average asana practice; it’s science.

Roots and Wings: How Will Zecco is Helping SWIHA Students Soar

Posted by Staff on 1/31/18 8:00 AM

For those who have had the pleasure of seeking support from Will Zecco, it will come as no surprise that he has the business savvy to back up his coaching!

Will has served as an entrepreneur and business owner for over 40 years, starting with the creation of his very first business in 1982, which he opened up with a $10,000 personal loan secured with the help of his parents. He was able to pay that loan off within two years, secure a second loan, and continue to expand the business— testament to his larger vision and gift for growth.

Yet, the road to entrepreneurship wasn’t always easy. “It was a learning curve all along the way,” Will reflects. “When I look back on it now, I wish that I had someone who knew about running a business to go to for support. I was not that fortunate and made mistakes along the way.” Will eventually ended up closing the business, and for the longest time, he felt that his venture had been a failure. With the passage of time, however, Will was able to see the whole endeavor as a series of lessons. “Expensive lessons,” he laughs, “Yet, lessons nonetheless!”
