WHY THE WELLNESS LIFESTYLE AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE WELL?

Wellness can be characterized by not merely the absence of disease, but by feeling good and enjoying one’s life. How you feel – physically, mentally and emotionally – determines the state of your overall health and well being.It might be said that your health is your greatest asset, since it affects how you think, feel, move, interact, prosper and achieve.

Our culture often encourages a dependence on doctors, drugs and health care systems to fix and heal these physical and emotional ailments. Yet it is widely known and accepted within the medical community that learned behaviors and lifestyle choices, such as poor stress management, inadequate nutrition, physical inactivity, inefficeinet sleep, smoking and excessive alcohol consumption are major contributors to illness and a diminished quality of life.

Modern medicine tends to fixate on diagnosis and treatment, whereas a wellness lifestyle focuses on education, self-awareness and prevention. Instead of merely treating disease, the wellness lifestyle addresses its causes- what lies beneath the disease and its symptoms. Our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, habits and choices are fueling the fires of inflammation, pain, toxicity and illness in the body. By addressing the root causes of disease rather than merely treating the symptoms we can assist the body in healing itself.

MY APPROACH & PHILOSOPHY

I believe this whole-heartedly! Our bodies have an inner wisdom that, if listen to, can guide us towards optimal health & well-being. We live in a world where “technology is king,” “there’s a pill for all that ails us,” “I’ll sleep when I’m dead mentality,” highly processed & fast food choices reign and… I think we can all continue to add to the list.

What I want to ask is,”are we living healthy lives?”

My wellness philosophy very simply stated is eating right ,exercising, rest & manage stress, reduce toxic load, informed self-care & proactive medical. May I offer you the guidance & support to tap into your inner wisdom that so wants to heal you!

WORKING TOGETHER

I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.

My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.

Together we’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.

WELLNESS & LIFESTYLE COACHING

Here are some concepts that we will explore during our work together:

BIO-INDIVIDUALITY

The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background. I use a personalized, holistic approach to ensure that you will have great success!

PRIMARY FOODS

It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

REVIEWS

SEE WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY

“I finally like working out! Pilates with Victoria is challenging yet fun.  Because she continually requests my feedback, she knows when to push me or when to ease up.  She weaves her knowledge & expertise into each session making the subtle adjustments to my body’s positioning that not only increases the effectiveness of my workout, but decreases any unnecessary pain. And just as important, the variety she offers completely dispels any chance of boredom.
Thank you Victoria!’

“Pilates with Victoria is awesome! I love how my 68-year-old body is feeling so good and looking so lean!”

KRISTIN

I first met Victoria in April, 2019. She was my Master Trainer for my Comprehensive Pilates Training in Atlanta, Ga. For three weeks I had the privilege of being trained, tutored, mentored and taught by her. I quickly learned of her extensive and expert knowledge in the practice of all things Pilates and was truly impressed. Beyond that, she is an incredible motivator with a kind, compassionate soul, and her energy is contagious. Her creativity and support have helped me to become a confident and complete instructor and proficient in my own personal practice. She is always available to help with specific concerns and questions about how to improve my personal and professional Pilates workouts. I would 100% train with her as my instructor on a consistent basis if proximity allowed. Choosing Victoria and Bentley Bodies to enhance your strength, fitness and wellness is one of the best things you can do for yourself!

Donna

Victoria Bentley is truly amazing to work with! She puts SO much personal care and attention into each client to make sure that each workout fits their individual goals and takes into account what their body is capable of. Whether you’re looking to start working out for the first time, looking for a lower impact complement to add to your current workout routine, recovering from an injury, or if you want to tone up and work on your balance and core strength, Bentley Bodies is the perfect place! I can’t believe how great my results are in such a short period of time.

RENEE

Professional, knowledgeable, Intuitive and strong, Victoria has been my massage go to gal for years. As a licensed Pilates instructor, health coach and massage therapist, Victoria is the whole package. She understands the human body incredibly well which makes her an even better massage therapist, working with various massage techniques. Having endured years of sports injuries, when things go out of wack, Victoria is always able to make me feel soooo much better…..every time. I could not recommend her more! 

ANNIE

Victoria was there when I did not realize I needed her.  In our weekly sessions, she guided me through so many life issues to really understand and drill down to truly what I needed to do to heal both my mind and body.  She addressed it all – physically, mentally and emotionally – professionally with such compassion and care.  I highly recommend Victoria for all your wellness needs.
