Work with Takeyah

There are things that you want to get done, right?

Lose weight, eat healthier, go back to school, actually use your vacation days and travel more, get some green food into your body, take that art class that you were so passionate about many moons ago, take a breather…wow!


There’s a lot you NEED to get done. There’s a lot you need to BE.


For some reason, you’re not BEing it. It’s cool. No judgment from me. What I have to offer is honest, sometimes firm, sometimes gentle, action-oriented support + coaching….AND you don’t have to deprive yourSelf to make shifts happen.

Nikita T. Mitchell shares her experience with Health Coach Takeyah A. Young

I really enjoyed how patient and thoughtful Takeyah was during our conversation. She really took her time to get to know me, asking questions about aspects of my life related to my physical, emotional and spiritual health. I particularly loved that she was willing to offer me suggestions of lifestyle changes I could make even in our first conversation. I look forward to working with her in the future.

Shelley Chapman of thanks Takeyah for her amazing coaching

Wowzers! The small, simple sustainable shifts that Takeyah suggested in our session were the key to helping me overcome my sugar challenges. Thanks to her ability to hone in, intuit and assess the core issue, I was able to redesign my Lifestyle Equation™ and put it immediately into practice. I am so excited about my new discovery and I know that my body and business will reap the benefits. Thanks Takeyah + Core Connection Lifestyle!
