About Luis Rivera

I’m the owner/operator of Embrace Yourself Wellness, which provides virtual wellness coaching and education services to individuals and families around the world so that they can experience a fuller, healthier life today.

I began in healthcare in 2004 when on the technical side of the spectrum working for medical billing and data authentication for hospitals around the US and eventually went into the service industry as a personal trainer and massage therapist. However, there were some aspects of those professions that often went unanswered. Ultimately causing me to seek out higher education. After enrolling in a doctorate program seeking my answers, I became seriously ill, and no one had a solution for the possible cause. From personal experience, I can tell you that not having coordination, having the inability to walk straight and losing control of your ligaments is no fun. They titled the challenges via many medical terms and added idiopathically occurring, which means no known reason, and left me to sort the issues. Once I was able to tape myself back together enough, I began to dig into the sciences of exercise, meditation, and movement, eventually earning my Masters in Science.

Eventually, after years of studying under some of the best teachers I could find in eastern medicine I have been able to make a recovery which has allowed me to live a fulfilling and satisfying quality of life helping people just like you live a healthier and more mindful life.

My favorite part of having a virtual business is the flexibility it gives me because it allows me to work from anywhere and with anyone in the world. Also, learning the customs and lingo from around the globe can be a lot of fun!

When I’m not working with clients or building content, I like to hike, meditate and spend time with my family, my significantly large Maine Coon cat who is now 3.25 feet long and about 16.5 pounds. (I didn't know she would be this big, but I did hope she would eventually stop growing.)

Lastly, I'd like you to consider three things that could set you up for success today. The first is to learn what makes you happy. That means to approach life with playful curiosity as much as possible. It can be hard for you as an individual to get out of the rat race, but when you are playful and curious, you will be able to open doors that you didn't know existed. The second would be learning to take a step back. Learning to take a step back from emotions, situations or even relationships will give you a better view and allow you to have space to respond instead of reacting. Lastly, remember that you are the one who was born and you are the one who will die, so cherish every moment along the ride of life. At the end of the day you cannot take anything with you but the memories you have made. I look forward to interacting with you and feel free to visit my site to speak with me further.
