NICOLE SUGIHARA, MS, HLC3, EXERCISE COACH, RYT
VP of EDUCATION, SYSTEMIC FORMULAS, INC
OWNER, EVOLVE EDEN WELLNESS STUDIO
GET TO KNOW ME:
Healthy living and balancing mind, body, soul wellness has been an integral part of Nicole’s life since she was very young. She comes from a lineage of healers, most recently her grandfather A.S. ‘Doc’ Wheelwright, who has contributed greatly to today’s alternative medicine model. Coming from a home that utilized herbal remedies and natural healing methods as the first line of defense, at age 7, Nicole quickly started to learn about balancing alternative healing methods along with allopathic medicine, for the greatest benefit, when her mother was diagnosed with cancer and embarked on what became a 20 year journey of illness and healing, ultimately resulting in her passing. Throughout those 20 years, Nicole was exposed to a plethora of healing modalities and therapeutic approaches. She also gained a deep love of the outdoors and embodied movement and made it part of her everyday routine, as she grew up as a swimming competitively, dancing and spending her winters on the snow either skiing or snowboarding. It was also during this time that she discovered her love of art and photography and began to experience its therapeutic effects.
For the past 9 years, Nicole has acted as the Vice President of Education at Systemic Formulas, Inc., her family’s professional line nutritional supplement company; overseeing all practitioner training events, materials, and spearheading communication with experts in the nutritional and wellness industry. Through this position, she has stayed on the cutting-edge of nutrition and wellness information and research.
Prior to her work with Systemic Formulas, Nicole earned a Masters degree in Art Therapy, where she created multimodal expressive therapies for people experiencing the effects of cancer, people with disabilities, and youth-at-risk. Her therapeutic skill set allowed her to assist clients with a variety of emotional issues while dealing with a multitude of diseases. She also managed 2 different yoga studios, created her own natural bodycare product line, Neekae’ Spa, and acquired Instructor Certifications in yoga, snowboarding, spinning, and rock climbing, and became a ropes course facilitator, all of which lead her to develop a multitude of integrative therapies for clients.
Most recently, with deep knowledge in the areas of alternative healing, natural health, and education, Nicole decided to tie all of her training and knowledge into one tidy package and become a Certified Holistic Lifestyle Coach (Level 3) and Exercise Coach from the esteemed CHEK Institute. She started her own business, Evolve Eden Wellness Studio, to guide her clients to their ultimate wellness, so they can live their dreams fulfilled. She incorporates customized integrative & holistic lifestyle, exercise and nutrition programming with relaxation, art, and outdoor play! Nicole embodies her companies motto and invites her clients to: Come with me, open your heart, release your body, ease your mind, free your soul, follow your bliss, spread your wings and fly!
Nicole received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography with triple minors in Community Arts, Business Administration, and Outdoor Education from the University of Oregon; and a Masters of Science in Art Therapy from Mount Mary College in Milwaukee, WI where she received a Collegiate All-American Scholar Award and performed collaborative movement art shows at a variety of professional conferences. She happily resides in the mountains of Eden, Utah, still enjoys skiing and snowboarding, and is an avid standup paddleboarder, yogini, trail runner and hiker (she usually goes with her 3 pups, and sometimes her awesome husband), and loves creating beautiful artwork with her hands!
My desire is to be gently and tenderly used up at the end of my days, through bettering the planet and all beings on it by: living fully with love and passion and helping souls heal along the way with an integrative holistic approach! I will help you dive deep into your authentic self by creating a clearing and a step-by-step path for you, so you can achieve your soul’s purpose and live YOUR dreams with love and passion!
