How can an RN Holistic Health Coach help you?

“The Five Pillars of Lenora” is the way to achieve these results!

Meet Lenora Colarussa, RN

I am a registered nurse and holistic health coach dedicated to achieving and maintaining TOTAL health and wellness for my clients for the rest of their lives.

I am a nutritional counselor, personal trainer, yoga teacher and reiki master.  I focus on the body as a whole, that is the mind, body and heart.

My Journey to Wellness
Like a lot of great stories, this one starts with pain. My brother who served in Vietnam committed suicide when I was nine years old. The shock left me with severe PTSD and I coped with destroying my body and mind, bulimia being the worst of it.

I was trying to get rid of all the pain in me by throwing up. This left me at death’s door emotionally and physically. Although the bulimia ended when I was 22, it did not heal the highs and lows in my moods and behavior, which lasted until I was into my late 30’s

In my 20’s in life a major car accident left me with serious hearing loss, a fractured skull and damaged facial nerves. To this day I have permanent hearing loss and some movement in my face has not healed. This also contributed to low self esteem and therefore abuse of my body and mind.

Connection at last
I found better nutrition and when I did, my blood sugar stabilized and so did my moods!

Mind
Things radically changed on my 39th birthday when I was given a gift of a weekend retreat with a spiritual healer. It was at this retreat where I first meditated. Something resonated deeply within me and after the retreat, I listened to as many meditation cassettes as I could get my hands on. (A lot of Deepak Chopra).

I had my 5 children to take care of, ages 7-14, but was determined to get this meditation “thing” down. While caring for my five children between the ages of 7-14, I would sneak in meditation while waiting for them to get out of karate or football. It has become a lifelong commitment and launched my desire to get credits for my fitness certification at age 30. I have been working out since the age of 16, but now I was doing it with a healthy mindset. The yoga and meditation and consciousness that I achieved from the two changed the whole thinking of my fitness aspect.

After that, I became certified in Hatha yoga, where again, I felt that same deep connection that I had experienced from meditation. It felt right.

Fitness is just one part of the equation. Mind, body and spirit have to be in equilibrium to achieve optimum health. So working out for me is yes, extremely important but only one part of the puzzle, and this is something I share with any personal training clients and how I train them. I work out for pure health and not just for the aesthetics, and it is so freeing to be free of the constant judging in my brain, and I owe all that to my yoga and meditation practice. It’s not always a linear path but I have learned to collect myself and move on in the past 15 years.

Since then I have healed my mental anxieties. Using meditation, fitness and yoga as my medicine, I have kept my PTSD at bay and kept my moods stable with great food. I have so much gratitude for this that I often cannot speak of this precious gift without crying. It literally gave me my life. I have come out of the deep hole of despair. Being conscious of my words and actions is truly a gift.

Now my life mission is to share this gift with women who need and want it. Especially nutrition. It is my passion, and I enjoy empowering each client to help her realize the strength that she embodies not only in body but in mind.
