Strengthen your connection,
   Evolve your thinking, 
      Move forward, inspired. 

At The Grey Monkey Gym, we focus on inner health and whole-person wellbeing. 

Whole-personal wellbeing is mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health. It's feeling good emotionally instead of stressed or overwhelmed; it's knowing how to shift your thoughts to be present or loving; it's knowing your truth, aligning with it, and being confident enough to act in it. Whole-person wellbeing is being able to:

  • kindly manage emotions (in yourself or others), 

  • inspire behavior change in those around you

  • communicate effectively regardless of circumstance

  • navigate everyday life with confidence & grace (Emotional Intelligence)

  • heal or improve your physical health

  • calm or energize by shifting your vibration


Strengthening your connection with your highest self, upgrading your mindset, or learning some kick-ass communication techniques are all part of the equation, but

You, in a calm, clear & connected state of mind, is the ultimate gift for yourself, and every one --and thing-- your life touches.

At The Grey Monkey Gym, we offer personal and group coaching, private group education and professional training, and practitioner collaboration in the treatment of illness or upgrade health from the inside out.

But why "Grey Monkey"?


Buddhists call it the monkey mind. It is a state of mind typified by feeling unhappy, overwhelmed, anxious, and unclear. Like a monkey, this type of thinking runs around your psychological house destroying your peace, clarity, inner calm, and essentially, throwing poo at your goals.

We help you evolve into a way of living that feeds your soul.

After being in the health industry for over 20 years, I have learned that a person can have an incurable chronic disease and still live joyfully. She can move forward inside when nothing's moving on the outside. She can be fit and healthy without surrendering the Oreos or wine. I know, because I am.
