I am Ilana Kosakiewicz and i am a CPA accountant, business owner, kinesiologist, coach and speaker and i serve my clients with my own unique skills, talents and discoveries that i have experienced and grown from in my own life.
My personal growth journey really started at the beginning of 2014. Back then i worked in a large organisation as a chartered accountant and i was the perfect employee – a workaholic, perfectionist, people pleaser, organised, reliable and 100% responsible for not only my own work, but that of others. A few years prior i was also studied my degree and CPA part time for 9 long years while working full time. I was striving for great career opportunities and always seeking approval and gratification from my superiors.
Outside of work i had a very active social life, loving partner, healthy diet, exercised daily, did 4-5 dance sessions a week and so from the outside observer I looked like a perfectly healthy, happy and energised 29 year old in the prime of her career and life. However, looks can be deceiving because on the Inside I was far from “healthy” – fatigued, stressed, depleted, burnout, overwhelmed, highly anxious, sleep deprived, lacked confidence, was unfulfilled and even depressed. But if you had of asked me this my response would have been, “I’m fine, i’m just tired, i can handle it, I’m OK really”, Really? Really? Not at all!
The week of my 30th birthday my life as I knew it changed forever. I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue, adrenal fatigue & lyme like diseases! Slap…… talk about a massive message from my mind, body and soul saying “wake up”! And that’s exactly what I had to do, evaluate the life I was currently living. And guess what? It’s the best thing that happened to me…….Yay!
While this journey has not been easy by any stretch or means, I have learnt a great deal about health, cleansing, diet, the mind, energy and myself. Not only do I know what boundaries are now, but I understand the importance of self care, self love and how to say that little word that can be so hard at times called “NO”. I have found out who i am and what my values are in life and the importance of practicing self care DAILY!
This healing journey lead me to my true calling and purpose as Kinesiologist, yoga and meditation teacher, mentor and to educating others. I am passionate about being able to serve my clients in their own life’s journey and who want to learn and embrace the importance of self care and living a balanced lifestyle.
If you have experienced a similar journey, want clarity about your path, have the desire to practise self care daily, want to live a balanced lifestyle between your career and personal life than i am here to guide and motivate you to achieve your goals.
I encourage all of my clients and students to find what brings them joy, passion and love for this is key to an energetic and passionate life.
And I now live and breath for myself and my clients the moto “Nourish to Flourish”.
