Celebrity Health Coach Koya Webb Encourages Community to Achieve Holistic Wellness This Year

This is a sign that it’s time to balance your mind, body, and spirit.

Health and wellness coaches are extending their practices, encouraging their communities to enhance their lifestyles and become more grounded by modeling healthier habits that everyone can incorporate into their new year routines.

Stretching her expertise in the industry, Koya Webb is an internationally recognized yoga instructor with over 15 years of holistic studies, amplifying the physical and mental benefits of holistic health practices.

The celebrity holistic health coach has committed herself to promoting daily self-care, oneness, and an eco-friendly lifestyle to combat mental health challenges, social injustices, and global warming.

With her core mission to help others launch into a healthier and more active lifestyle, Webb shared her personal journey shifting into yoga, personal training, and life coaching with BLACK ENTERPRISE.

Making the shift into the yoga and wellness community

Webb, a small town girl from Humboldt, Tennessee, was led into the holistic wellness community following an injury during her years as an athlete pursuing track and field.

“Being born and raised in the South, health wasn’t presented to me as a way of life. Prioritizing health was presented as something that you do only when you get sick,” Webb says.

“A counselor suggested I try yoga,” recalling her attempts toward recovery.

“Yoga and breath work really helped me heal my mind and body. When I took my first deep breath in class, I could feel the effect it had on my nervous system. Yoga helped me prioritize self-care everyday and I learned not to push myself too hard,” she adds.

Webb says the practice helped her heal—and changed her life.

Webb’s mission as a yoga instructor and holistic health coach

My mission as a yoga teacher is to inspire as many people as possible to try yoga, and for those who are entrepreneurial my goal is to inspire them to get certified as a teacher because we need more teachers, especially Black women and men.”

Advice for yoga and wellness newbies

My advice would be to trust yourself and trust your body. Try a couple of different things and see what feels the best. Once you find what feels good to you then be consistent. An accountability partner can be helpful if you don’t have a coach.”

Webb’s tips for navigating holistic wellness

Take things one day at a time.

“My biggest tip is to start one day at a time and one breath at a time. A lot of people try to do too much at once, but really if you just start with 1 mile a day or one or two yoga poses that you like, you can start to feel the benefits and not get too overwhelmed.

Partake in spiritual, physical, and mental exercises.

“Spirituality, I would recommend 10 deep breaths as soon as you wake up and sit in stillness for 10 mins,” Webb explains.

“Physically, I would recommend walking a mile a day and doing at least one yoga pose that feels good in your body. Mentally, I would recommend creating an affirmation that empowers you to repeat every morning and night,” she says.

Webb’s consistency landed her a sweet partnership

The wellness expert entered a partnership with Sunsweet, the prune company running the largest dried fruit plant in the world, to expand her mission to help those seeking healthier alternatives when it comes to indulging in sweets.

“I’ve partnered with Sunsweet to help enhance my wellbeing and show others how they can support their wellbeing and achieve their performance goals by simply adding California Prunes and Prune Juice to their routine,” Webb says.

“Adding California Prunes and Prune Juice from Sunsweet to your daily routine can help fuel your workouts and may even help you feel fuller longer so you can move through the day feeling energized and satisfied. For people looking for new ways to support their wellness in 2023, it can be as easy as adding California Prunes and Prune Juice to your day—pop a few prunes in your mouth for a snack or add prune juice into your favorite smoothie recipe.”

The future for Webb’s wellness journey

Webb believes communities should have access to wellness coaches and similar health resources.

I think it’s important to have a coach during your wellness journey because it’s easy to get discouraged when you have an injury, miss a class, or face a challenge in life,” she says. “Accountability and encouragement really helps people stay consistent.”

Webb also hopes to see memberships under her coaching expand in numbers.

“My goal is to have 10,000 people working out together daily via my get loved up online membership. I would love to certify 1,000 teachers this year through my accredited yoga teacher training school and I would love to personally coach 20 wellness entrepreneurs in building their brands.”

She is a registered RYT 500 yoga teacher, (with certifications in Ashtanga, Rayoka, SUP, AcroVinyasa, and AYfit), NASM certified for personal training, and graduated from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN).

Webb has starred in the reality show, Yoga Girls, and has attained a roster of celebrity clients, including Stevie Wonder, India Arie, and P. Diddy.
