Diversifying Boutique Fitness & Creating Transformational Healthy Living Changes with Briana Owens

Screen Shot 2019-10-06 at 9.01.45 PM.png

In this episode, Kayla chops it up with Briana Owens!

Health and wellness influencer, entrepreneur and empowerment coach Briana Owens is committed to improving the negative stigma surrounding generational health and wellness for underserved communities. After graduating from Hampton University with a degree in English, the New York native moved back home where she set out on a mission to serve as a catalyst to push people towards being their best selves. Strengthening her knowledge of the fitness industry while teaching cycling classes around NYC for nearly 5 years, Briana quickly noticed the lack of diversity not only in her classes but in the boutique fitness industry as a whole.

Her love of spin coupled with a deeply rooted desire to see more people of color engaging in healthy living practices, led her to create Spiked, a culturally relevant lifestyle brand committed to providing access to quality affordable classes and resources for underserved communities to thrive.

As CEO and Founder of Spiked, Briana has hosted hip-hop infused spin classes in NYC, Atlanta, the Nation’s Capital, and Los Angeles as well as partnerships with organizations such as Nike, Aquahydrate, Broccoli City Festival, DC Department of Parks and Recreation, Big Brother Big Sister, among others. Through The Spiked Brand, Briana leverages her years of experience in the boutique fitness industry and intricate studies of generational health and wellness to educate the masses on social determinants of health and how adopting healthy living practices, balance and consistency can lead to transformational changes.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why Briana decided to focus on spin vs other boutique fitness options.

  • Making boutique fitness feel more welcoming, inclusive, and accessible.

  • The reason behind why representation in the boutique fitness space is critical to changing the way we look at wellness.

  • Building an unapologetically diverse business and taking risks in that capacity.

  • And so much more!

Kelley Green on How to Create a Life of Healing, Growth, & Happiness Through Wellness Practices and Self-Love

In this episode, Kayla chops it up with Kelley Green!

Kelley Green is a self-love enthusiast, certified yoga instructor, podcast host, published author, and creative writer for her own personal lifestyle brand. 

Kelley impacts the world by providing people with the guidance and resources to see themselves in a way that amplifies their self-worth. Through her content, created as self-love quotes, blog posts, speaking topics, videos, etc., she introduces the importance of self-care, and creating a lifestyle and belief system that affirms the love and celebration all women deserve.

In 2017, Kelley debuted her first book “Perfectly Imperfect”, a collection of poetry and prose laced with gripping poems and inspirational tidbits of reflective experiences infused with valuable wisdom. Each piece reminds the reader of life’s only constant: change and life’s key to happiness: self-love. Through creative writing, Kelley learned how to overcome the grief of three loved ones in her family in one year and her battle with living in the unknown with society's pressures of success on her back. She now uses the knowledge she’s gained to help other women battling with self-doubt, a lack of confidence, and an uncertain sense of direction in their life.

Born and raised in South Jamaica, Queens, New York, she is no stranger to seeing faces that resemble hers while also witnessing the pain and challenges of the women inflicted by loss, trauma, and a vacant sense of self. This is why her work is designed to guide creative women of color to a life wrapped in confidence, self-love, healing, and alignment with their purpose and true selves. Kelley’s coaching work is strengthened by the 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Training Certification that she carries in order to introduce her clients to transformational breath-mind-body awareness, divine self-love, and a sense of community as a yoga practitioner.

She’s an advocate for giving creators a place to voice their experiences through the podcast she co-hosts called the WYL Take Ownership podcast, which is in partnership with Univision Broadcast Network. Kelley has landed partnerships and speaking opportunities with companies such as Allstate, Whose Your Landlord, Women’s Empowerment Groups, NYC Board of Education, and several Non-Profit Organizations, in New York City.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The challenges of healing from loss.

  • Why boundaries are critical for self love.

  • Why taking the first step towards your goal is the most important step you can take.

  • How journaling can help to unlock repressed feelings and assist in your growth.

  • The struggles of relationships as you're continuing to grow.

Sexual Empowerment & Breaking the Stigma with Be Guerra

Be Guerra.png

In this episode, Kayla chops it up with Be Guerra!

Be Guerra is the creator of Tinder Lotus, a sexual reawakening brand dedicated to help Women of color rediscover their Sex Goddess within. 

As a Sensuality Maven and a Woman of color, Be grew up with several limited beliefs around sex that left her feeling lost, confused around it and victimized when she experienced traumatic experiences around sex. She began to question everything that she ever learned about sex and came to the realization that there was no need to have shame around it. Sex is inherently neutral and just another part of what it is to be human. It's human beings that have made sex as something wrong and shameful. 

Be's journey of self inquiry on sex helped shatter her constrained beliefs around the reality of what sex is and unleash her power around sexuality and her mission is to inspire other women to do the same. She believes that letting go of shame is the greatest gift we can ever give to ourselves.

Be is an LA native, a Libra almost to a T, visiting cemeteries is her Chi and enjoys keeping things classy with a glass of Pinot Grigio.

6 Reasons You're Not Reaching Your Wellness Goals with Kayla Nedza

Screen Shot 2019-07-08 at 8.33.18 AM.png

"I'm eating healthy and working out, but I'm not reaching my wellness goals." Does this sound familiar? 

You know what you have to do to reach those wellness goals, so why is it SO HARD to get it done? My guess -- because it comes from experience -- you need to reassess what's really going on. I’m not talking how many veggies you're eating or how many steps you're getting, because you've got that.. I mean your those other external factors.

If your wellness goals are stagnant, you need to rework your mindset and address those crazy myths that we're constantly being fed in this space. I’m breaking down what's not being talked about in the wellness space of those things that have hindered my own ability to reach my wellness glow up, from comparing myself to other people's goals to ways you can address those toxic lifestyle factors.

Press “play” because we're about to address these reasons head on and get our glow up on!
