MP USA's Student's of the Month
January 2019 Athletic Adventure Program
Georgia started her training at MP-USA in the Wealth of Health Program in January 2018, moving into the Athletic Adventure Program this semester. Her purpose for training is to improve her skills, build more self-confidence and avoid anxiety. Her feeling is that by working on these things outside of class, she can come to class and get more technical information and improve even more. During her training, she loves seeing all the different pieces of knowledge and skills she has learned come together like a puzzle. Georgia says that her favorite moment, to date is hard to pinpoint because there have been so many! However, if she has to list one thing, it is feeling her own energy pulse throughout her body and the guided positive self-talk from the instructors.
Outside of her training, Georgia enjoys being outside in all that nature has to offer, from the mountains to the beaches. She loves being a mom, and genuinely loves learning about people and different cultures. In her down time, she enjoys reading, being creative, and finding adventure in the ordinary. An interesting fact about Georgia is that she is very introverted, but has a fighting spirit, which she uses as motivation to study ahead and get to know other people.
“The techniques learned here [at MP] will truly influence your life in ways you cannot find elsewhere… You will learn to let go, and to hold on, physically, mentally, and spiritually.” ~ Georgia
What the trainers have to say about Georgia:
“Georgia can always be seen practicing her Dasar 1 movement and seeks to master every detail. She encourages her classmates to work together. She greets everyone with a smile and offers words of encouragement. When challenged to deepen her stances or push just a little bit harder, she takes that to heart..” ~ Mbak Teauhna
