Bridge The Gap Between Who You Are & Who You Want To Be
Feeling stagnant in your current context or frustrated by plateaus?
Does it feel like you're spinning your wheels when it comes to making real progress?
Tired of working on your body instead of living in it?
Are you ready to find more confidence and clarity in what you bring to the world?
If you're here reading this, you've probably explored everything from yoga to strength training, meditation to MovNat, Feldenkrais to Functional Range Conditioning. And you still feel like there are hurdles you can't seem to move past.
You know the mind/body connection is real, but you don't know how to turn theory into practice.
You're at the point of information overload. You know there must be a way to connect the dots between everything you've learned so far, but at this stage you can't see the forest for the trees.
And speaking of...you crave more time in nature, more connection to the world around you. Not only that you want to deepen your relationships with the people who matter most, but you can't seem to find the right balance in your life.
You want to pay it forward and make a difference: with your students, your family, or your community, but you're not sure how. Sometimes you feel like a fraud, wondering to yourself: "Who am I to do this?"
You can't quite put your finger on it, but there's a feeling of dis-integration. You know you're not living up to your potential, and something just feels off.
How do I know?
I've been there myself. And I found a way forward. I'm here to tell you: it doesn't have to stay this way.
It's a year from now, and you feel like you've crossed a threshold. The limitations that once held you back and caused so much frustration have finally opened up. It feels like you've come home to your body, and you're living life in alignment with who--and how--you want to be. It's a whole new space where:
- You have effortless mobility...no more nagging aches and tension.
- You jump into your favorite activities without second-guessing yourself.
- You tap into new reserves of creativity and clarity in your work.
- You have a stronger connection to yourself and your relationships.
- You go through each day with a deeper understanding of your body and mind.
- You have the direction and drive to tackle new challenges with confidence.
It's possible. In fact you're closer than you think.
If we want to "unbox" ourselves, we need awareness of the edges and the courage to choose something different.
I'm here to guide you along the way.
Meet Your Coach
Hi there, I'm Chandler Stevens, and I help people who are passionate about movement make sense of their bodies and their lives. Through creative coaching in movement and mindset, I'm here to help you bridge the gap between who you are and who you want to be.
I work with coaches, teachers, artists and entrepreneurs from around the world.
We make magic at the intersection of movement, conversation, and awareness.
Together we tackle the limitations that hold them back through the practice of Ecosomatics. I've seen people do incredible things: re-learn how to walk, start a health village, tackle "impossible" movements like handstands and muscle-ups, create their dream job out of thin air, and more. But more important than the externals is the fact that they learned to be more of themselves.
After all you can only make your real impact on the world if you bring all of yourself to life's challenges and opportunities.
What I've come to realize is that your body is your most powerful resource.
It's your first--and truest--home. It's how you make your way through the world and connect to those around you. And finding a deeper connection to your body opens the doors to a deeper knowledge of your self.
What Past Clients Say About The Experience:
"I just wanted you to know that working with you gave helped me find the confidence I had lost and the desire to take control of my physical life back...I can start the journey back to being me, the whole me.
You make this process unique. You have more of a whole person (body/mind/spirit) approach...I'm not sure that you can make this process more valuable. By the end I felt amazing both physically and mentally." - Melissa
"The improvement I've made has been quite profound.
I have significantly less aches and pains now, and have a lot more range of motion in all my joints. I've never experienced such a transformation in all my life in such a short period of time.
I can't thank you enough! My body now feels like it did when I was a younger man, but in many ways, it feels and works even better than it did when I was in my 20's and 30's.
You have a great gift of distilling and synthesizing information from many disciplines and delivering it in a way that is meaningful and impactful." - Pierre
Here's What To Expect:
The truth is: coaching doesn't lend itself well to cookie-cutter descriptions. It's an ongoing relationship and a dynamic process, not a series of boxes to check. When we work together, we'll create an experience entirely unique to you, but these are the common themes:
A "Big Picture" Assessment
You don't live in a vacuum. When we work together, we'll take a look at the big picture context that led you to this point, including:
- Your joint function, movement quality, and body awareness
- Your habits, routines, and relationships
- Your personal vision and aspirations
- Where and how you spend your time and attention
This is how we get clear on how you can stop holding yourself back and start moving in the direction you want to be going.
A movement practice To Unlock Your Body.
Your body is an ongoing process, and it's endlessly adaptive. When we give it the right demands in the right doses, it's capable of extraordinary change. With an emphasis on body awareness, expanding mobility, and natural movement you'll find new possibilities for fluid movement.
And as you reclaim your movement, you'll find that it changes how you make your way through the world. As one student put it: "It feels like I finally grew a backbone, and I can literally stand my ground!"
Open Conversations To Spur New Insights.
I'm here to meet you halfway, but I expect that you'll play all out. You can expect honest (and challenging) questions and the space you need to come up with your own solutions.
I'm not here to prescribe any one way of doing things. I'm here to help you find your way.
I'm here to help you cultivate awareness and intention, in your behaviors and your words. After all both shape us in powerful ways. When we work together, you'll find new ways of seeing yourself, your relationships, and the world around you.
"After years of stretching, releasing and opening, I still had such limited mobility in certain areas of my body. I couldn’t understand why...I figured I’d overstretched from all the yoga, and I felt a little betrayed by my practice.I have so much more confidence in myself as a yoga teacher and personal trainer now.I’ve learned so much. It feels like I’ve discovered the missing pieces in my experience with my body and my trainings as a yoga teacher and CPT." - Erika
"I struggled with a lot before coming to you...I had been in pain for so long that I had become incredibly depressed. I believed that I would never be whole again to do all of the things I love. I had always felt I could do anything I set my mind to, and this is the first time in my life I began to think, "what can I do?"
All of these areas of my body and mind are getting increasingly better every day!
I now know that the pain wasn't in my head, so now I feel entirely validated. My confidence is growing every day! I'M NOT BROKEN! I believe I can and will make a comeback both physically and mentally." - James Swantko
"There was something holding me back from realizing my full potential.I’ve realized from working with you that what was holding me back was a sense of not having complete control over my situation because I lacked full ownership of the process.By reframing myself as the hero, not the victim, I now had to play the part.With your encouragement, I went in and kicked myself in the butt because no one else could do it for me." - Lauren Siegel
Not Local? No Problem.
I work with people from around the world through one-on-one coaching and immersion experiences.
You Have A Choice To Make
You can continue on as you have been, working hard to get it done alone, questioning whether or not you're on the right track. Orr you can get the guidance and support you need to upgrade your practice and jump forward into a world of possibility. Only you can make that choice.
Let's be clear here. This approach is NOT for everyone. We're going to swim in the deep end:
- It requires a high level of commitment and a willingness to play full out
- It's a serious investment in time, money, and energy
- It requires a willingness to reflect, to question, and to act...it's radical responsibility
I'm here to change lives, and I don't plan to settle for less. I'm going to fight for your potential because the world needs it.
