My name is Caroline Jordan and I am a health and wellness coach based out of San Francisco California. I lead regular classes, workshops, and seminars designed to help people keep their minds, bodies, and spirits in great shape. I love what I do and everyday I am excited to share my passion with others. My goal is to make all of my work inspiring, uplifting, and provide resources participants can immediately use to improve their wellness and life. I believe in the power of this work, in creating an environment of awareness and support, and inspiring positive lifestyle changes in individuals (and hopefully the world as a result :) I have just completed my first book, “Balanced Body Breakthrough”. This book is my coaching resource guide to getting your body, mind, and spirit in great shape so you can love your life. It’s the modern hero’s journey from burnout to balance.

Through my work in wellness, I see so many people struggle to find balance, health, and self-love in their lives. Burnout is a growing epidemic that is making our world sick, tired, and joyless. My goal is to make this book a source of inspiration, information, encouragement, and support. Much of the content presented here is material I present at wellness workshops, speaking engagements, classes, and client sessions. The material has been so well received, I wanted to put it into one place in order to share it with others.

The introduction is my own personal story; It tracks how I recovered from burnout and became the balanced wellness coach I am today. Chapter One is an in-depth coaching exercise designed to help you define your ideal vision of success; to help you set smart goals and take action. The following body, mind, and spirit chapters are full of resources, strategies, and tools that can be used individually or together to accomplish your own personal goals. I designed each chapter to help you to take action towards achieving your vision of success and find balance in your life.
