Marika Cominos – Being Awesome
NAME: Marika Cominos
LOCATION: Melbourne, Australia
Yoga & Complementary Therapies Practitioner, Project Manager
As an inquisitive philosopher of life, for many years I searched beyond what my physical eyes could see, knowing that there was more to life than what was being presented. I eventually came to understand and value my deeply felt inner knowing and the enormous potential of what could be lived when connected to my heart.
At age thirteen I joined what was the soon to be infamous, ‘Flying Fruit Fly Circus’ and at age fifteen was appointed as a senior acrobatic teacher learning alongside some of the best international teachers in the world. This was the beginning of a twenty-year acrobatic performing career. Living life on the edge seemed to be a common theme for me from a young age . . . from walking on narrow fences as if they were tightropes, diving off seventy foot cliffs in Canada and hand-balancing on twenty foot of chairs for a living.
I then ditched my adventurous twenty-year performing arts fame as an acrobat for a more gentle approach - finding a true balance in life.
Relationships with people have been both amazing and challenging - the more I work on developing a true connection with myself and adoring me from the inside out, the more rich my connections are with others
This is why I am passionate about my work as a Wellbeing Professional delivering and advising on health, fitness and lifestyle medicine; tailoring wellbeing programs that truly support and open possibilities for individuals to evolve towards greater body awareness and self-care.
Organisation is my middle name, and making things happen as a Project Manager is also what I love to do. Although I already have a Business Administration Degree (BBA) in Management and Marketing, there is a far more important BBA that in recent years I have dedicated my life to – the increasingly popular, ‘Bachelor of Being Awesome’. And I must say, it is the most enjoyable degree I’ve studied to date, and one that doesn’t ever seem to have an end.
With a love of butterflies, long luxurious baths, and a deep care for people, I love the diversity of my life and the volunteer projects I give my time to, each one offering an opportunity to share my expression with the world – from writing blogs about life, love and truth, to creating short videos and inspiring others to live a healthy and vital life. Every day I am inspired in witnessing the evolution both in myself and others and the magic that life unfolds.
Well known and appreciated for saying it how it is with care and purpose, I am one super cheeky, sexy, cute and playful woman who can cut up the dance floor with some fine and sassy moves, bring fun and joy to work, and cook up a feast in the kitchen with friends and family.
