Mind-Body Practices for Stress Management & Better Self Care
With Stephanie Lewis
Hi! I'm Stephanie.
Mindfulness or meditation does not have to mean incense, sage, or sitting in a lotus pose. But it does mean making yourself more of a priority and changing your brain elasticity to help you manage stress better, overcome challenges, and be present in the moment no matter what the moment throws at you. It's all about taking back and tapping into your own power to improve your well-being. At LiveWellFlow we help you create, integrate, and maintain mindfulness in the midst of the daily flow of your busy life so you can skillfully manage stress, increase your concentration, and release the barriers to performing and achieving your personal and professional goals.
Our offerings, whether group or personalized, focus on stilling the mind, moving the body, and being present in your daily life to better care for yourself and honor your needs. This does not just mean a sitting or moving meditation. It could also mean, for example, working together to help you integrate mindful eating into your life, set boundaries at home or work, or achieve longed for goals. Why the multiple approaches? Because there is no one-size fits all approach to a mindful, more centered, and content you.
We all have our own unique journey. Yours should be as unique as you are.

What People Are Saying About LiveWellFlow
"I owe Stephanie and her meditation classes so much. They are providing me with the tools to manage myself, my experiences, my expectations, and my life. I didn't realize before I began learning mindfulness techniques how much they would touch my life." Elise
"Stephanie has an excellent workshop facilitation style with good pacing. She encourages participation and doesn't overtalk, allowing silence and reflection between points. She does a great job of selecting and editing content and mixing talking, activity, and partner sharing. She also curates excellent workshop topics and resource persons." Rebecca
"Stephanie was an invaluable health and wellness coach for me. She presented me with questions, resources, and homework that I found empowering and productive. She is a great listener and synthesized my thoughts and feelings in a way that made things crystallize for me. I realized how much control I have over my own life choices. I am better at taking the time I need for myself so I can be a happier, healthier "me" which makes me a better mother, wife, and friend. I am responsible for my own happiness and I feel like I have the tools to achieve it now. Thank you Stephanie!" K.F.
"Stephanie was such a wonderful coach, and I'm thrilled that I had the opportunity to work with her. She frequently started our sessions with a short guided meditation that I found both calming and incredibly useful as we moved on to discussions about progress I had made and possible upcoming pitfalls. I found working with Stephanie a really rewarding experience and one that I would highly recommend to others. She did a great job integrating physical, mental, and emotional health in helping me set goals for myself." M.H.
"Stephanie is a thoughtful coach, guiding with insightful pacing and placing caches of wisdom within reach. She was faultlessly professional and generous. I appreciated her patience, wisdom, warmth, and humor." Catherine
"I was able to spend 12 weeks working with Stephanie, and the Live Well Flow Coaching Program. Stephanie started with discussing my mindset, determining my goals, and digging deep into the mindset around eating and wellness. During the sessions with Stephanie, I was able to focus on determining deeper reasons behind eating, eating emotionally, and eating mindlessly. We spent time meditating and I felt like I was finally able to hear what my body was telling me. I feel better able to know when it is the right time to eat for my health, and when I need to pay attention to my feelings. We did three different mindfulness sessions, tasting food and really paying attention to what we are putting into our mouths. For the first time (in a very long time) I actually tasted my food. It has been life changing for me. I have learned to slow down when eating, what to do to taste my food, and enjoy what I am eating-all without eating mindlessly.
"Stephanie is a thoughtful, compassionate, and empathetic coach. She has been direct and forthright, not allowing me to hide behind the excuses or "stories" as she aptly calls them, which I know don't serve me well. She has shown a dedication and focused energy that has helped me to hone in on effective, practical ways to proceed - not simply with a job search, but with a real pathway forward in my life as a working mom. I highly recommend her for any life, wellness, or job coaching needs you may have!" M.F.
Above all, Stephanie made me feel listened to. I’ve always had dreams, but they were wispy and cloudy, too varied to bring into focus. Stephanie guided me to clarify which dream most needed to take precedence, and then she helped me build habits that have allowed me to realize my visions. She did this all while listening so carefully it shocked me at times, always making me feel like what I said was important. She did not diminish any of my concerns. She listened to the realities of my situation, and helped me determine which obstacles were only perceived, which were legitimate, and which needed to be honored. By holding up a mirror to me in important moments, she helped me set priorities.
Her professionalism is unparalleled, and her way of looking at systems gave me a different lens through which to examine various dynamics.
Nothing seemed to faze her—I asked for guidance on a contract at work, my family-work balance, and time-management. She was masterful at determining and wading through details.
Now, many months after setting my priorities, my entire perspective of my life has shifted, and I am enormously grateful for Stephanie’s presence on my journey.
"Stephanie was my coach during a challenging life transition to self-employment. She has a wonderful ability to actively listen, summarize your thoughts, and ask reflective questions that help you stay focused and get at the real issue - all while giving you the nurturing support you need. I highly recommend Stephanie Lewis to anyone wanting to move forward in life to a better version of themselves!" Janice
"Stephanie has great presence and her warmth and engaging personality make it easy to be authentic while working with her. She asked powerful questions that helped me with personal exploration and she held space for me to process information and feelings. I would highly recommend Stephanie to anyone working on personal development and seeking to dive deeper and make some effective changes in their life." Emily Kushvaliev
"Stephanie was my coach and mentor and there is not enough room here to say all the wonderful things about her. When we met, I was just beginning my mindfulness learning. About three sessions in, my life took a nose dive and my stress skyrocketed. Stephanie was steady, calm and focused on what I needed. She helped me become aware of my motivations and feelings while teaching me so much about the mindfulness practice. Her guidance led to me a steady and growing commitment. Plus (and I have told her this) she has the best meditation voice ever!" MKC
It’s been two years since our work together. While I still have not built that regular meditation practice, I do practice mindfulness daily. I’m mindful of what I eat—even when I make an unhealthy choice. I’m mindful of my thoughts. I’m able to move things out of my mind, but also able to process thoughts that I need to address. I’m mindful of what’s going on in my body. The mindfulness lessons led me to finally change/manage my relationship with food. I'm eating at home 90% of the time. I’ve also developed a regular exercise routine/habit, resulting in weight loss, lower cholesterol, and improved overall health.And a lot has changed. I got married. I changed jobs. I moved across the country to the place closest to my heart. That’s a lot. It could’ve been stressful. Well, it was actually. But you gave me tools. And I use them as needed.I wanted to check in to let you know how your former pupil was doing and to say thank you!! You helped me change my life for real! Tomeka Hart
