My name is Kathy Bobadilla. For the last nine years I have passionately taught people to improve their lives. How have I done this? I am a master trainer of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven Covey; a powerful three day workshop that empowers people to improve themselves personally and professionally. I also teach and develop classes such as Introduction to Collaboration, Conflict Resolution, Change Management and How to Facilitate an Effective Meeting. Additionally I teach two professional power business writing classes. I have a BA in Italian Studies and an MA in Spanish (I like to talk – what can I say? So I learned a few extra languages so I could talk to even more people).

I am also an apprentice Essentrics teacher. What is Essentrics? It is a workout designed by Miranda Esmonde-White, Public Broadcasting Station’s (PBS) number one fitness instructor for over 20 years. The reason I love it and decided to become an instructor is that it is a stretching and strengthening program that works all the muscles and joints in your body. That’s a pretty good deal if you ask me. It is all about body awareness and the power of movement and how it is vital to our health at any age.

I like you have been through many life experiences, both good and bad. I have three kids, I have been married and divorced, I have had breast cancer and have recovered. I have eight siblings and my dad. My mom passed away in April of 2018. I have had good relationships and bad. I have had good jobs and bad jobs. And so on and so forth 🙂

I’m also extremely passionate about personal and spiritual growth. I want to explore with you some of our innermost challenges: stress, anxiety, fear, anger, confusion, conscious mind verses the subconscious mind, and outright healthy behavior patterns to name a few. if you’re anything like me, you are constantly “searching” for “happiness” and release from pain. Pain manifests in so many ways and I always wonder if my cancer was a result of too much unresolved pain in my life. My brother who is a doctor, and many other doctors would put the kibosh on that I’m sure, but I am extremely curious about our minds, emotions, life experiences affect and that includes our physical and emotional health.

We are on this journey together. I will explore holistic healing: meditation, body movement with exercises like yoga and Essentrics, my stories and yours. I will share my research, review books, techniques, body awareness, inspiration and stories with you. I’m so excited to have you here. I hope we become good friends.
