We had the good fortune of connecting with Kai Landworth and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kai, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
I’m inspired by the opportunity to work with clients who are searching for the potential of growth, change, and improvement. Someone might reach out and share they feel plateaued, stuck, and looking for some direction whether it be weight loss, gaining muscle, improving energy levels, stress-management, or a myriad of other aspects of their wellness.
It’s an exciting and inspiring journey to collaborate with someone through their inner process of discovering what works for them to improve and ultimately create balance in their life.
What should our readers know about your business?
KaiBodyMindWellness is a boutique wellness practice in Los Angeles that helps people actualize their health goals.
My business is built upon the principles of holistic health and sustainable lifestyle.
Clients reach out with the desire to explore and transform their mind, body, and spirit to help live the life they want to live.
It’s an honor to watch someone discover the depths of their
I’ve helped dancers step up their technique, parents find mental balance amidst work and life demands, and seniors improve their quality of life through movement and exercise.
I guide my client’s toward their inner-strength and confidence.
It’s moving when a client looks back and realizes how much has changed a month later as they have continued to explore, discover, and move towards their goals.
I offer a variety of integrated techniques to facilitate people towards their visions of wellness.
I’ve realized there’s no “cookie cutter” fit when it comes to wellness. Everyone is unique and will resonate with a different approach.
My services include health coaching, personal training, yoga, corrective exercise, balanced nutrition, and meditation.
Building quality relationships with my clients fosters a safe environment for them to search within and challenge themselves.
The mind-body connection is a key principle in the work that I do.
Even when it comes to body based techniques such as exercise and personal training, the mind plays an essential role is helping to overcome self-limiting beliefs and build a platform of motivation, willingness, and courage.
While transformation came manifest early on, I place a strong focus upon sustainability. I’ve witnessed that the best results are the ones that maintain and improve over the long run.
In addition to the sessions I have with my clients we also develop routines that can self-empower and equip them with tools for prevention, maintenance, and progression.
My clients and I co-create their routines and programs. This client-centered approach has shown to create routines that are engaging, sustainable, and provide long term results.
Before starting KaiBodyMindWellness, I was working in a physical therapy clinic doing rehabilitation exercise with patients. I was also privately teaching yoga and doing personal training.
I realized that while these techniques seemed to stand apart on the surface, underneath there was an interplay and convergence of application between them.
The idea came forth to integrate these distinct modalities under the umbrella of a holistic wellness practice.
I continued my education and after receiving my certification as a health and wellness coach I created a holistic health practice that offered personal training, corrective exercise, yoga, meditation, and balanced nutrition. This marked the inception of KaiBodyMindWellness.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Hah, where to start? I love Los Angeles. It’s such a unique and eclectic city. Art museums are one of my pleasures so we’d probably start at LACMA or the Getty Museum. I also like the Broad and that makes for an adventurous day in Downtown L.A. Lunch time at Grand Central Market is a feast of international cuisine.
A stop at The Last Bookstore is a bookworm’s delight.
A delicious dinner in Little Tokyo and a night exploring the Arts District to top off a Downtown adventure.
Griffith Park is a beautiful place to spend the day, there’s great hiking, and some of the best views in the city. I’d definitely do a day at the Griffith Observatory and then hike some nearby trails. Late lunch in Los Feliz and then some live music in Echo Park.
The nature along the coast of Los Angeles is amazing. We would spend a day at the beaches in Malibu along with some hiking in the Palisades. Temescal Canyon and Los Liones are great hiking spots. The Lake Shrine is also a nearby gem for relaxation and peace.
As for short out of town mini-vacations, there’s so many lovely places to visit. For some desert scenery Palm Springs and Joshua Tree are the “hot” spots. Santa Barbara and San Diego are up top for a relaxing coastal getaway.
Back in L.A., Venice is an exciting area to spend a day, exploring the canals, eating at Cha Cha Chicken, and then journeying over to Hollywood in the evening. There’s so many fun nightlife activities in Hollywood. A great concert at the Hollywood Bowl, a night at the Magic Castle, or some belly aching laughs at The Comedy Store.
The list goes on! There is simply an inexhaustible array of things to explore and do in this amazing city!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Shoutout to all my amazing clients, teachers, friends, and family who continue to support my work. I owe it to all of you!
