Bobbi Misiti FMCHC, is known for her enthusiasm and love of health through good local organic whole foods, herbs and oils, yoga, breathing and movement, and permaculture gardening.
I 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. I enjoyed working in Community Recreation Boards during this period offering health, nutrition advice, movement, and de-stressing techniques to our community at affordable rates.
1996 – 2017 Self-Employed Yoga Teacher & Yoga Studio Owner
In 1996 I found the practice of Yoga and delved deep into the yoga path following a soft 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.
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.
Member American Herbalist Guild
I have an extensive background in anatomy, kinesiology, nutrition, yoga practices, herbal home remedies, and fitness training.
I currently reside in Maui, HI when not teaching in PA or around the world.
I have three grown wonderful children and three lovely grand daughters.
From 1990 to present I have attended hundreds of workshops and seminars around the world on improving my understanding of the body and how it works, while developing my skills as a teacher and educator. I have also logged countless hours studying from Functional Medicine doctors through their lectures, summits, articles, and workshops.
