"Today I'm talking to Vonie Kalich. Vonie is on a mission to help women release the weight of the world by right-sizing their reality around health and wellness and understanding that stepping on a scale and meeting a number isn't the best way to achieve their goals. She's a long-time fitness professional with more than 30 years in the industry. She retired from running in 2018 and took up cycling when cancer in her knee took away her ability to run. Vonie is a horsewoman who in 2016 became a certified equine gestalt coach and developed Vonie Kalich coaching. When the pandemic hit, she created her signature program, one size fits none. Hello, Vonie, I'm so happy to be talking to you today.

VK: Hi, thank you. I am so happy to be here with you.

LHC: This is always fun to just kind of get to know people, and like I was telling you, this is just a meet and greet, so let's meet you. I am thinking that there may be some people out there who do not know what Gestalt Equine Therapy is. Can you explain that to us?

VK: Yeah, thank you. That's a good question. So gestalt is a German word for wholeness and is explained in very simplistic terms if you take a look. Remember those figures where you show the shadow and part of it is black and part of it is white and it looks like a face on one side and an hourglass in the middle? That's like two parts of a cell kind of thing, right, so it's like we have multiple parts of ourselves and gestalt and so on, like I said. In simplistic terms, it's like bringing all the parts together in a package. and that's very simplistic."
