Hi I'm KIMBERLY MAINE owner/operator of Inner Warriors Wellness and Coaching. I live in beautiful Victoria BC with my husband and 3 year old son. I am a Mental Health and Trauma Coach, Registered Yoga Teacher and CSEP Certified Personal Trainer specializing in mental health and wellbeing. I love running, yoga and spending time in nature with my family. I have been in the health and wellness field since 2007 and through my personal and professional experiences found my niche/calling helping people dealing with mental health challenges, trauma and/or those wanting to improve their mental health, resilience and wellbeing.
I’m often asked why I chose to specialize in working with people dealing with mental health challenges and trauma survivors. My answer is, “because coaching, yoga, mindfulness and meaningful movement gave me hope, and provided a safe landscape for me to cope, heal and grow from the losses, trauma and mental health challenges I had endured, and empowered me to use the strengths, wisdom and gifts gained from these experiences to pave the road for the future; thus, allowing me the freedom to create my most PURPOSEFUL life filled with possibility and authentic joy." As a coach, educator, trainer, and guide my goal is to help you do the same.
MY STORY-In November 2018 After 7 long months of extreme sleep deprivation after the birth of my son, I was committed to the mental health ward for 2 weeks and told that I had experienced post-partum psychosis and diagnosed with Bipolar-Disorder. I knew that from this day forward my life would no longer be the same. I am incredibly grateful for my life and the experiences I have gained, but I also know that my greatest joys and accomplishments have come from moving through difficulties, disappointments and losses of my past and using them to navigate the future. I know now that, ultimately, I am the creator of my life. I get to begin anew every day and create who I want to be, how I want to show up in the world, and trust that even on my darkest day that there is an inner warrior inside of me here to awaken, evolve, and flourish.
I envision a day when all people dealing with mental health challenges and trauma survivors can easily access coaching and compassionate yoga-based care and movememt based therapy that takes into consideration the top-down (mind to body) and bottom up (body-mind) methods of healing body, mind and spirit. The work I do is my contribution to this vision, and this story is my motivation.
