About Estelle Brodeur

I coach people who want to build a healthier life, from the ground up. Whether we focus on personal or work themes, you can expect energizing conversations that identify barriers, create resiliency, develop goals, and secure habits for joy and satisfaction.

In addition to my credentials from Duke Integrative MedicineInternational Coach Federation, and The Wisdom Of The Whole Coaching Academy, my career experience and personal health practices make for a unique coaching style. I hold graduate and undergraduate degrees from Virginia Commonwealth University and The University of Virginia. My knowledge comes from over three decades working in the fields of corporate wellness education, psychotherapy, and advanced nursing practice.

I often combine coaching and yoga in the process of helping clients create healthy changes. My personal experience is that awareness of mind, body, and breath builds a strong foundation for navigating life. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) specializing in Hatha Yoga and Yin Yoga. I believe that yoga is accessible to all who want to explore and benefit from this ancient practice. I enjoy modifying practices for all bodies and ages.

I also orchestrate Laughter Yoga RVA, a group that promotes wellness using the practice of unconditional laughter.
