“I am so glad I met Elizabeth! 🙂 She is a real GIFT. She is ‘others-centered. ‘ She has a genuine passion for blessing others and helping others live life more fully, regardless, of disabilities, challenges and limitations. She teaches best that which she is: an ATX –model. Her life-journey makes her a credible example. Her expertise, professionalism, in addition, her optimism and hopeful attitude is refreshing contagious energy.
“I will share how I am benefiting personally from ATX. I like how simple it is to do whether with her in a class for a 30-minute session (always enjoyable) or on my own using the ATX DVD.
“ATX is practical ‘coping’ tools and techniques that help me better manage stress and anxiety. I have always been a high-energy, “go-go, non- stop” person, in fact my nickname is Zippy! 🙂 I have enjoyed good health and energy my entire life. What a blessing! Unfortunately, relaxing has not been high on my priority list.
“However, since I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s, 13 months ago, I am learning that I need to make some life changes and give myself permission to relax. It’s essential for my body, mind and spirit. I’m trying to tell myself to stop and be OK with my stillness and quietness. It is a choice, a skill and an art that requires desire, work and practice. ATX is helping me learn how to be comfortable with my silence (stillness, quietness), to relax by breathing, stretching, and practicing mindfulness — staying focused and fixed on one thing at a time. To practice being in the moment— the here-and-now.
“Since beginning ATX, I realize re-wiring my brain and adapting to new practices and habits takes time, but I am convinced of the benefits. I am committed to keep practicing and making it a way of life.”
