Personal Coaching

We often find our true inner power when we find balance between our striving to be better, to manifest our dreams, and our acceptance of who we already are.

Personal Coaching with Bob Speck

One-on-one personal coaching designed for you! Whether your intentions are to find peace of mind, to open your heart, to increase strength and flexibility, or to build personal power, I am here to help guide and support you and your intentions.

Heart of the Village Yoga Teaching – We’ll work together to develop practices which are relevant to you and your current life situation. Whether you’d like to learn about Power Yoga, Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Restorative Yin Yoga, Aerial “Anti-Gravity” Yoga, Adaptive and Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, Yoga Nidra, or Bhakti Yoga, I’ll help you develop your practice. Usually, we’ll start with breathing exercises and mindfulness-based practices to focus our attention on what’s important.

Bringing Heart to Life Coaching – Often times, our struggles in life can be shifted by how we see things – our perspective or point of view. Practices based on yoga teachings can help us reduce our stress and struggles and help us find lasting happiness and peace of mind. I’ll guide you through my Four Perspective approach to help you find your way and stay on course.

Functional Strength Training – I’ll work with you to develop specialized training programs designed for your body and your highest aspirations. Whether your intentions are to be more lean, to feel more at ease, to be stronger, or to perform better, I will coach you through body-weight and functional-strength-building routines, weight-training methods, and day-to-day training programs, all of which are designed to progress over time to help you exceed your dreams!

“With his loving presence and vast knowledge in personal coaching, yoga, functional training, emotional healing, trauma, and more, Bob has guided me back home into my heart and helped me find the inner-peace I was seeking. If you’re considering working with him, take the leap.” – S. Farland

“Bob has an interesting way of showing you your own power by helping you create space for love and respect for yourself. Through yoga, meditation, and personal training I’m healing from the inside out. Over the last year Bob has helped show me how to love myself and appreciate all that my body does for me! Something I never thought was attainable for myself.” – A. Mullin

“As a competitive skier, my performance is directly affected by my mental state and physical conditioning. Bob showed me that it’s just as important to focus on my personal state of mind as well as strengthening my body. Focusing on being the best version of myself was one of the biggest things he stressed. Not comparing myself to others… but focusing on my own personal growth was a huge takeaway for me. He incorporated yoga and meditation into our workouts, which I learned to respect and enjoy. Every movement or action was done with a purpose. He is great at tailoring workouts for the individual.” – T.Carter

“Meeting with Bob weekly, I’m often impressed by his gentle & inspired instruction in the yoga studio, by his strength-training expertise, and by his sound tips regarding diet & healthy living. But his coaching is also integrative & holistic — it’s not just about training the body — it’s about training the mind as well. Bob is always gently reminding me that to have personal goals is good, but it’s important, too, to bring consciousness & awareness to all of my actions — including my workouts! And that this mindfulness is every bit as important in creating overall true health.” – M. Harrington

“The value of a great mentor is inexplicable and immeasurable. I am so incredibly grateful for your help in realizing my dreams, true potential, and for always believing in me.” – A. Webber

“As a young adult, I don’t know where I’d be without Bob’s guidance. I use the techniques he’s taught me to find peace among the chaos. I find myself more centered, focused, and thriving than ever before. Bob is not only a great coach and mentor, he’s an inspiration as well. I am grateful for the overwhelmingly positive impact his lessons and the example he sets have had on my overall well-being.” (L. Robinson)
