Conscious Entrepreneurship and Steps to a Healthier Lifestyle with Riley Cote

Namaslay® with YogaByCandace®

 

In this episode, Candace talks about conscious entrepreneurship and steps to a healthier lifestyle with Riley Cote, a former NHL enforcer for the Philadelphia Flyers, and founder of BodyChek Wellness. Riley built a company on the belief that the road to recovery begins with natural solutions, with the mission of optimizing everyday performance and challenging individuals to rethink the healing process.

Riley's hockey days were spent getting his hands dirty the “old fashion way”, fighting on the ice as an Enforcer. Being a physical player was part of his role however it came at a cost. Putting his body on the line and sacrificing his wellbeing for the betterment of his team resulted in constant physical pain, countless concussions, mental anxiety and a laundry list of bodily injuries. Rather than relying on pharmaceuticals for pain management, Riley turned to hemp-based solutions.

BodyChek Wellness began as a play on words. In hockey, the most physical version of checking is the “body check”. BodyChek Wellness is about applying a “checking mindset” when it comes to our physical health. It’s about achieving wellness by being mindful, tuning in and listening to the body.

Riley built a company on the belief that the road to recovery begins with natural solutions, with the mission of optimizing everyday performance and challenging individuals to rethink the healing process. Listen in for more on his journey to wellness and inspiration to improve your own.
