Teachers and Method » About Bobbi Misiti

Bobbi Misiti FMCHC, is known for her enthusiasm and love of health through herbs and oils, good local organic whole foods, yoga, breathing and movement, and permaculture gardening.

liebe-liveinI combine this enthusiasm with education of the body, how it operates, and how it moves. I have dedicated my life to practicing and teaching lifestyle as a means of preventative medicine.  Here is an overview of my journey:

1984-1990 Purchasing Manager, Flight Systems Inc.
In this job I discovered I did not enjoy spending 40+ hours each week under fluorescent lights, breathing corporate building air, and sitting in the office environment.

1990 – 2001 Self-Employed Personal Trainer, Health & Lifestyle Management Consultant, and Exercise/Movement Teacher.
I have been working independently since 1990 teaching the world about the power of breath, movement, food, herbs, and oils.  My journey on this path began in 1990 as a self employed personal trainer, fitness instructor, and nutrition educator.

1996 – 2017 Yoga Teacher & Yoga Studio Owner
In 1996 I found the practice of Ashtanga Yoga and delve deep into the yoga path following the traditional method of old fashioned Ashtanga Yoga.  Over the past 20+ years I have been studying, practicing, and teaching the ancient philosophies of yoga, breathing, meditation, and Ayurveda world wide.

From April of 2001 – January 2017 I owned and operated a full on yoga studio; BeFit Body & Mind YOGA, taking a giant leap on my own to teach from my heart – influencing people with lifestyle medicine — teaching the importance of lifestyle as a means to prevent diseases — and thrive.

In the fall of 2009 I began traveling internationally and teaching world wide spreading the joy of yoga, physiology — our internal workings, and the importance of whole fresh foods.  More info here on my travels.  As of 2018 I am a taking two year hiatus from international travel (to protect my own health from the ravages of long travels!)

Health Coaching Independently since 2016
I graduated from the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, in June 2017 as a Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach, FMCHC.  In December of 2016 during the practical training of our certification I started accepting Health Coaching clients both in person and online, slowly evolving my business toward Health Coaching.  As my health coaching business grew I designed and developed a tool on my website called Learn & Thrive to use with my clients.  This wonderful section has information to support a healthy lifestyle; de-stressing techniques, seasonal recipes and cooking tips, planning and meal planning, ways to avoid chemical exposures, and a blog.

Aromatherapy
I have personally and with my family used herbal remedies, teas, and essential oils since the mid-80s.  I have decided to take this knowledge to the next level,
I am currently working through an Advanced Aromatherapist Certification with Floracopeia. 
Upon completion I plan to integrate Aromatherapy into my Health Coaching services.
