Why Choose Achieving Balance: A Journey with Erin Straker, Expert Kinesiologist
Thank you for delving deep into my world. I’m Erin Straker, the heart and soul behind Achieving Balance. As a leading kinesiologist, I blend energy, motivation, and a wealth of knowledge into my practice. My life is a testament to wellness, learning, brain integration, and the realisation of how powerful goals can be. Rest assured, I only advocate methods I’ve personally embraced and all recommendations are from personal experience and depth of research.
Speaking from a place of truth, experience, and grounding, I stand firm in the belief that thriving is within everyone’s reach, no matter the circumstances we find ourselves in. My passion for what I do is not just a profession; it’s a calling.
Below is a snapshot of my qualifications, but it’s my limitless experience that truly shapes my practice:
- Diploma in Kinesiology
- Certifications in Neuro-Linguistics Programming, EFT, Hypnosis, Coaching, and Timeline Techniques
- Bachelor’s degree in Personal Development, Health and Personal Education, and Positive Educational Psychology
- Certified Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher
- Certificate in Gifted Education
Over 18 years, I’ve dedicated myself to teaching, coaching, and promoting optimal health and well-being. My journey in the health and wellness arena has been nothing short of dynamic and exhilarating. There’s an unmatched thrill in connecting the dots, enlightening others, and fostering transformative change. As someone who has personally navigated through learning, behaviour, and brain integration challenges, I bring a unique perspective and deep empathy to my work. This personal journey fuels my passion for helping children unlock their learning potential, build self-confidence, ignite a love for learning, and expand their horizons of achievement.
Kinesiology didn’t just catch my interest; it felt like coming home. It was ‘love at first balance’ for me. Kinesiology not only filled a void in my life but also helped me connect with my higher self, answering many of my lifelong whys:
- Why I’ve been a genuine advocate for health
- Why teaching has always been a passion of mine
- Why I forge such a strong bond with new mothers and their babies
- Why I understand the crucial link between physical movement and learning
- And most importantly, why I’m committed to being the change I wish to see in the world
Kinesiology catalysed my personal and professional growth, pushing me beyond my perceived limits. It’s been a tool not just for my well-being but also a medium through which I help others find their balance and reconnect with their core selves.
