Judy Crowe -Tai Chi & Qigong Teacher, Naturopath and Health Coach

Hi there and welcome

I hope you’ve had a chance to relax and have some fun over the long weekend. As you can see here, I’ve been working on my own wellbeing, chilling out at the local cafe.

My passion is to educate, mentor and model health and wellbeing and I work with the wonderful chillout team to do this in the community and workplace.

I studied a Bachelor of Health Science and started my career as a Naturopath in clinic. From 2008 I broadened my horizons and stepped out to deliver health seminars and workshops in the workplace, at conference centres and in the community.

To stay chilled out myself I practice my Tai Chi, Qigong and Meditation. And to stay light and bright I follow my own prescription: to include smiles, laughs and play in every day!

Along with administering Corporate Chillout I run health coaching programs for individual clients and groups. Group programs are held in the workplace, individual programs are either in the workplace or by telephone.

Meet Lindy our Nutrition Guru and Joanne our Yoga and Meditation Teacher below. These inspirational women will educate and delight your team.

Lindy Cook – Nutritionist, Mindfulness Teacher and Centre for Sustainability Leader

“My personal goal is to live a healthy, happy, balanced life, and my goal is to give others the opportunity to experience the best possible version of themselves with optimal health, vitality and wellbeing. That’s what I am truly passionate about.”

Hi there….

I’m Lindy Cook and a qualified Naturopath, Nutritionist and Herbalist. To me eating a healthy, whole food diet is one of the fundamentals of wellbeing. ‘Let Food Be Your Medicine and Medicine Be Your Food’ as they say. So I guess it goes without saying how much I love giving Nutrition seminars and Cooking Workshops with Corporate Chillout. Getting out into the world and inspiring positive food choices is what it’s all about. Whether it’s replacing the lolly jar at work with a bowl of fresh fruit and nuts or encouraging you to cook more , getting you excited about eating nourishing, healthy foods is the aim.

I have been fortunate enough to work in many different capacities within the wellbeing world – recipe development, lecturing at Endeavour College, giving Nutritional workshops in the workplace and working in private practice. I have also been a regular contributor to Health & Wellbeing Magazines, on-line health sites and a speaker at events such as EcoExpo for Sustainable Living.

In 2015 I began a fellowship with The Centre for Sustainability Leadership. Not only do our food choices effect our health, they impact our environment. Diseases, such as obesity and diabetes, are in epidemic proportions and we have to ask ourselves why. Our lives are busy, leaving many feeling to time poor to cook. Often it seems easier to buy pre-packaged, ready made, nutritionally dead foods. Ultimately there is a disconnect between where our food comes from to how it ends up on our plate. We desperately need more ‘real food’ in our diets to create ‘real change’. I want to help you create that change …..

To chill out I practice yoga and love to get outside, with friends, and walk in nature. I feel my shoulders really start to drop when I spend time at our beach shack on the east coast of Victoria. Beach walks, bush hikes, swimming, reading, catching up with friends, eating good food, hanging out with my family. That’s my real chill out time.

Along with my corporate health talks I run a nutrition clinic and I also specialise in promoting healthy school lunches. To book an individual health consultation or for a school presentation contact us.

Joanne Jackett – Yoga Instructor and Meditation Teacher

Hi there …

I believe in creating a balanced life. For this to happen, one must first see the reason for achieving this. The inspiration may come through some form of life or health challenge or it may come through the teaching of someone who demonstrates a balanced life. The important point is that we maintain an open mind and a spirit of enquiry.

I believe in the long term benefits of a yoga practice, including yoga relaxation and the integration of yoga philosophy into ones daily life. This can thoroughly support us in our endeavour to create a balanced life. With a positive attitude, life is limitless in its possibilities. Life is exciting and can be a continuous adventure.

Yoga means ‘union’. Ultimately, union with the Divine. But as we are so deeply entrenched in the physical, we need to acquire certain skills and knowledge to take us further.

Yoga has many branches. For most of us a good place to start is Asana Practice….Hatha Yoga. This provides us with the means to achieve more flexibility, strength, greater concentration, clarity and most importantly, relaxation. Relaxation, not just at a superficial level, but at a depth that enables us to maintain calmness and stability when faced with life’s challenges. Relaxation that helps the body to function at optimum health and allows us to tune into the depth of wisdom that is within us all.

My teaching incorporates Asana practice, pranayama, relaxation, chanting, meditation and philosophy.
“Intuition is soul guidance, appearing naturally in man during those instants when his mind is calm…The goal of yoga science is to calm the mind, that without distortion it may hear the infallible counsel of the Inner Voice’ Paramahansa Yogananda, in Autobiography of a Yogi.

“In a world where our lives are often too busy to stop, reflect and even truly participate we aim to reconnect your staff with their inner selves, the food they eat, the world around them, so they may find the peace, resilience and happiness they need to shine.”
