Hi! I'm Jessica Sowers, Holistic Health & Wellness Coach, E-RYT, Aerial Yoga Instructor and overjoyed owner
of Body Bliss Connection, LLC! I help people connect to increased energy, learning incredible foods to fuel your body,
fun activity, creating wildly satisfying relationships for a life overflowing with joy and whole health!
Do I love talking about yoga, nutrition and delicious goodies for our bodies? YEAH! I LIVE for it! I also love sharing
how to create a whole-heart-centered personal life, an active, fun and connected physical body, a healthy home
environment, one of a kind relationships and the significance of releasing creativity and...FUN!
How did I get here? I grew up in a small, wonderful, country town in Ohio. I was lucky enough to have the best parents
in the world, a fabulously supportive and kind sister and an adventurous life. After graduating High School and attending enough college to know it wasn't for me, I struck out to make it on my own in California. I landed a great job, in a bank, and loved life! Beautiful beach, great apartment, good food, great people, I couldn't ask for more. I worked my way up the corporate ladder into higher paying jobs, higher titles and yes...higher stress.
The changing point? Yeah, it came...hard and fast! After several years of curriculum development, training courses, public speaking, educational seminars and an Executive Board that changed their minds more often than their underwear...I'd had enough. Enough of the 60+ hour work weeks, enough with the impossible deadlines, enough of the last minute "organizational" changes...ENOUGH! I let the job destroy my family, my joy of life, my mental health, my physical health...EVERYTHING.
What next? I picked myself up, dusted myself off, grabbed the most important things in the whole world (my two beautiful, amazing, kind and handsome sons and my three face-licking, sweet natured dogs) packed them in the SUV and drove 2800 miles HOME.
And then? Healing occurred. Not quickly, slowly...painfully slowly. Then, I latched onto a lifelong love of food, how it works, how it heals (it heals everything!) and decided to learn more. Next, I found yoga. Life changing, soul moving, can’t live without it...Yoga!
What did I learn? SO MUCH! More than just about food…life lessons, more like LIVING lessons! I studied with The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, learning over 100 dietary theories, innovative coaching techniques, and lifestyle management techniques, all from outrageous world leaders in Health and Wellness. A few of my incredible teachers include Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Dr. Deepak Chopra (My Favorite!), leader in the field of mind-body medicine; David Wolfe, Health, Eco, Nutrition and Natural Beauty Expert; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities. I also began my Yoga studies with Maureen Lauer-Gatta, owner of The Yoga Room, she taught me more than I ever expected. About myself, my thoughts, my body and about acceptance...
This was the BEST time of my life! Next, I connected with a new passion...Aerial Yoga! I WAS HOOKED!!!
I then received my Board Certification with AADP (American Association of Drugless Practitioners), my 200 HR Yoga Training Certification, and my Ascension Aerial Yoga Certification, woohooo! This Wildly Amazing education has filled me with extensive knowledge in Holistic Nutrition, Preventative Health, Activity, Yoga practices, Body alignment and so much more. The Coaching and Lifestyle Management techniques have given me the skills to live my life, to the fullest. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY! I began Health Coaching and now opened a School in Warren, Ohio! I cannot wait to meet you and share all of this knowledge with you!!
