NIka Eshetu, Pilates Trainer, Sports Fitness & Patient Empowerment Advocate
 

She didn't find The Work, The Work found her; She didn't find a Life's Mission, The Mission found her. Through the welter of pain, uncertainty and struggle, Nika Eshetu, Pilates Trainer, Sports Fitness Specialist and Patient Empowerment Advocate, discovered a highly noble purpose in life, one that taxes her young, strong and yet frail body. Born with a genetic chip in her DNA strand, resulting in kidney and upper limb mobility issues, she ended up having a kidney transplant at age 21, a gift from her Mother, and then discovering Pilates as a means to build renewed energy, vitality and mobility into her body. This life-changing exercise regimen, a gift from Joseph Pilates to the world, allowed Nika to shed the use of many toxic prescription meds while she tuned up her diet and found a lifestyle pace which kept sickness at bay. 

And from that process grew a Mission to teach Pilates, fitness and natural solutions to others suffering from chronic pain or severe illnesses. Nika Eshetu's experiences with doctors, pharmaceuticals and medical bureaucrats, combined with knowledge found in and out of that process, has made her a valuable asset for clients finding their own way through the weeds of traditional and natural treatment options. What is the old saying, "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is King," well, in the land of modern medicine one needs six faces, three hearts and twelve eyes to navigate safely through the numbing maze of info and pressure. Modern medicine is indeed truly amazing, however, as was said in Hamlet, "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy (science)."

Nika's empathy comes from knowing how it feels to be "in the process" and to be ignored and not listened to, feeling like a number, a chart or a test result; a past master in the lost Art of Listening, because survival in that world requires ears open to glean vital info, not much escapes her perceptive mind and sensitive soul when dealing with others. Nika's Mission comes from riding thru the Dark Tunnel and finding her own way into the Light.
