#005 Rachel Bonifacio: The Incredible Power of Awareness
On today’s episode we chat with the charming and bubbly Rachel Bonifacio. She is an entrepreneur with 18 years of experience working in the corporate landscape, primarily in human resources and training. She’s taken up her Masters in Psychology from Southville International School and Colleges, while her undergrad degree in Business Management was from the College of the Holy Spirit. Her continuing education courses come from the Ateneo De Manila University, University of Pennsylvania, and Princeton University, and is an alumna of FLOW Coaching Institute Toronto. Apart from corporate training, Rachel administers psychological counseling and life coaching for Lighthouse Wellness and Life Coaching Services, and is also a certified yoga and meditation instructor for Treehouse Yoga Philippines, both of which she owns. This episode is very fitting in today’s time as we are continuing to experience a planetary shift in consciousness as more people are waking up in the truth and realizing that it is time to step up as humanity. This health pandemic has given so much opportunity for a lot of people to go inward and admittedly a lot of us feel uncomfortable facing change but it is in these types of conversations where we truly begin to see where we are, assess everything and from there take action to where we ultimately want to go. It was an absolute fun chatting with Rachel and talking about mental health from a wide spectrum of topics. There are a lot of tools discussed here that’s fairly easy to apply in your daily life. Hope you enjoy this one as much as I do. FOLLOW & SHARE this episode and tag us on your social media accounts! Light House Wellness PH Join the Private Facebook Group!

#004 Amy Berezowski: Badass Women & Challenging The Status Quo
History tells us that women are inferior to men. We’ve seen and heard this countless times through past generations and it has certainly led to how we were conditioned to think about women. More importantly, there’s just too many generalizations and labels around what being a woman should look and be like. If someone goes outside of that box, then she is not considered a woman. Coach Amy, professional boxer and owner of Empowered Clubhouse, is no stranger to challenging societal beliefs when it comes to women and strength. She firmly believes that being a woman doesn’t necessarily have to mean being skinny and bubbly. Her message? Just own who you are. Strength is her calling card and she thinks her mission is to empower women and give them the right tools to level up in their life. Through fitness and boxing, she is continuously helping fellow women and forming her own sisterhood to create a safe space for all women to come together, work hard and be the strongest versions of themselves inside and outside the gym. Amy is changing the game when it comes to women’s fitness and health. She is redefining what it means to be a strong and badass woman and I truly appreciate her courage to fight for what she stands as she continuous to help others do the same.

#003 Kelly Williams: Building Resilience & Bouncing Forward
Kelly Williams is a man true to himself. No question. One of the most celebrated players in the Philippine Basketball Association, Kelly decided to hang up his jersey and move on to the next chapter his life. I’ve known Kelly since his early days in the PBA and to see him outgrow himself not only as a player but as a human being is such a joy to watch. He is a true testament why giving up is not an option. Growing up in Detroit, he simply had to hustle and grind and find his way through. That’s basically how he lives his life up until now. There’s no denying that he really makes himself accountable and as he enters a new phase of his life, he is now prepared to help uplift all the other people who might be in the same exact shoes he was in years ago. A true honest and sincere man, this podcast episode goes deep into his early days as a child and how his setbacks fueled him to be a better father and a better person as a whole. I’m really happy to share this to you because I deeply resonate with his story. Having passion and love for fitness is something we both commonly share and we view it as an instrument to improve ourselves and start taking control of our life. A champion and was named the Most Valuable Player of the league, I think he’s more than that. He can be an MVP for a lot of people because he has such a rich story to share to us especially to those who are in need to be seen and heard. SUBSCRIBE & SHARE this podcast episode!
