Definition of an Alpha Female
An Alpha Female is a powerful and assertive woman. Her confidence is due to being an intelligent and intellectual problem-solver. Being an Alpha Female is a State of Mind based on choosing ambition and being proud of it. She strives for a happy and healthy work/life harmony.
She is the brightest star in her constellation. When an Alpha Female stays true to their authentic selves and their missions they shine. An Alpha Female puts herself first because she deserves self-care and love. She knows that work/life harmony is found by staying true to your priorities and what makes you happy. She is never complacent about striving for better and nurtures relationships with all the people in her life.
Meet Colette Kent!
Colette, a native of Ireland, immigrated to the US in her early 20’s where she
worked in corporate America for over a decade. Wanting to hop off the corporate hamster wheel, she pursued her passion for health and fitness and began a full-time career in this field.
In 2008 she moved to Nice, France and opened a fitness and yoga studio. She was also an avid competitor, taking part in many sporting events, however, even with all her ‘healthy’ efforts, her health was not in a good place. In 2014, Colette took some time out to cleanse and reset her body. She underwent a 21 day Ayurvedic cleanse program in Bali and this is what changed her life personally and professionally.
After the cleanse, she stayed in Bali, working with the Ayurvedic Doctor for a year. Colette also completed her studies to become an Ayurveda Wellness Counselor and began her online business, Elements Healing and Wellbeing and her podcast Elements of Ayurveda. Elements Healing & Wellbeing takes a natural, holistic approach to healing, incorporating the body, mind, and soul. Using the ancient teachings of Ayurveda (the Wisdom of Life) to connect people to their ‘true nature’ (unique mind/body type), to Mother Nature and to each other. “I believe that life is a journey of self-realization and this journey begins with a self-study and understanding our own ‘true nature’ or unique mind/body type. We can then understand how to keep our body and mind in balance by eating the correct foods for our constitution and having some simple daily habits and living the right lifestyle for our ‘true nature’. When we are in balance, we are more
conscious and able to access our intuition to lead us on our Soul’s journey. The key to optimal health and contentment are in our own hands”
