For GYROTONIC® Exercise Sessions:
In our GYROTONIC® exercise coaching sessions, my primary focus is to guide you through a progressive series of gentle strength, flexibility, flow and coordination-building movement sequences, primarily making use of (but not limited to) the GYROTONIC® Pulley Expansion exercise apparatus in my studio.
In keeping with a “holistic” approach to fitness and mind-body health in general, in these sessions, we may also discuss, albeit more informally, issues such as sleep patterns, diet, other complimentary physical activities & exercises—and anything else we feel may support you to become more healthy, fit and full of vitality.
While the focus is more focused on the “physical level” in our GYROTONIC® sessions, I periodically ask my GYROTONIC® clients to fill in the “UZAZU Eight Life Areas Quick-Self-Assessment” (typically at the start of our work together and then a bit later on as well) so we can more consciously do our GYROTONIC®exercises in a way and with a mindset that optimally supports the rest of your life.
Understand that all forms of body conditioning, including the GYROTONIC® Expansion System, has inherent risks which, despite reasonable precautions, could lead to serious injury. In working together you agree to assume the risk and further agree follow the prescribed safety indications and follow instructions as to how to perform the exercises.
If you have any significant health concerns, especially if you haven’t exercised for some time, you should consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise program such as this. You may refer your healthcare practitioner to www.gyrotonic.com so they may evaluate
For UZAZU Embodied Life Coaching Sessions:
Some clients with whom I’ve been working decide to do some life-coaching sessions with me as well. (I am certified in UZAZU Embodied Life Coaching.) In our UZAZU Embodied Life Coaching sessions, I am here to serve as a support, guide, coach
Our focus, in these sessions, is to free up and make available from within you the emotional and mental energy, insight and inspiration that will naturally empower you to live more of the life you want to live.
Keep in mind, our coaching process is not a replacement for psychotherapy and I, Kyung-sun Baek, am not a certified psychotherapist. While from time to time I may give you self-assessments to complete, offer my reflections, ideas and personal observations on any number of personal and professional matters, I do not diagnose or treat disorders, nor offer business and financial advice. (That’s the official disclaimer part.)
The UZAZU embodied life coaching sessions you experience with me, while typically working very well on their own, can also be very effective either as a precursor, complement, or follow-up to professional therapeutic services. If you are currently receiving any other related support, I encourage you to inform each of us about the other’s work with you so your overall process can be optimally effective.
THE COACHING SESSIONS
Length of Sessions:
GYROTONIC® sessions are 60 minutes and the UZAZU Embodied Life Coaching sessions run 75 minutes.
Starting on time is important. If you arrive late for a session, I reserve the right to still finish our session at the originally appointed end-time. (I very often have another client scheduled as well, and so I need to finish on time.) Please, always contact me by cell phone at (207) 841-5770 and let me know if you are running late (call or text, not email). If I don’t hear from you within 15 minutes of our scheduled start time, then I will deem the session a “no show” and it will be counted towards your total session package.
Session Cancellation Policy:
All scheduled appointments must be cancelled with 24-hours advance notice to avoid being charged for the session. There is some flexibility in this policy for emergency situations, but please be aware that in most cases if you cancel less than 24 hours before our session start time your reserved session will be billed.
Coaching Package Fees & Billing:
Coaching Packages are typically paid upfront in packages of 10 sessions. Please refer to my pricing section for the current rates. You can pay me in person in cash or check after our first introductory session together of before your first session of the 10-session package.
General Confidentiality Commitment:
Your identity, our coach-client relationship, and nature and content of your work with me, including anything we may discuss will remain private and confidential, and neither myself nor anyone I work with will share any information about you and our work together with a third party without your express consent.
I may ask you at some point during or after our process to share a testimonial about the results you are experiencing, but this is always entirely at your own discretion.
Exceptional Exceptions to Confidentiality:
In the event that I believes there is clear and imminent danger to the life and physical safety of one of my clients or others in their life, I may need to disclose selected information in order to make appropriate and potentially life-saving interventions.
Additionally, in highly unusual circumstances, legal requirements may demand that confidential material be revealed.
