​Nathalie L. Ishizuka

​Director of Beyond Our Best

​My mission is to see a world with 1, 10 or 100 or more people who love themselves unconditionally (and hence can love the world in its entirety), meditate at high levels (inner clarity) and experience a joyful competence in one field of expertise where they go beyond a previous best (inspired action).

Once again --  unconditional love, inner clarity and inspired action.

Such an individual and collective vision may be just enough

to ​transform ourselves and our world. ​

Coaching Simplicity, Joy, Humility & Transparance of Spirit

This is an advanced course and is on invitation only.  It involves Bio-Energy, Overcoming Blockages, Becoming Fully Present by using our Energy in Entirely New ways to heal ourselves and our World.  It is an introduction only course to get you curious about your full capabilities.  Having completed some of the other courses you can make a request for this course when ready.  Like everything in life, timing is EVERYTHING. 

Coaching Psychology to Go Beyond Your Best

Are you stressed? Pulled in too many directions?  Able to balance self, intimate relationships and achievements enough to experience joy everyday? Nathalie who has trained for over 25 years in LifeTrack in optimal success, health, intimate relationships and well-being lives life differently. Taught by a Harvard-Keio Japanese psychiatrist who was enticed by Zen and going beyond illness and symptom relief, she now teaches insights from the method educationally to all so they may not need transformational therapy.  Or if ever they do, they will know where to begin and have a tremendous head and heart start.

Coaching Yoga Meditations: a Clear State for Effective Being

Why Meditate?  Most people have tried meditation unsucessfully because no one taught us how to concentrate, how to focus or sit still–  yet alone sit or stand.  How can we teach something we don’t know or practice ourselves?  Meditation is the art of being.  It is for EVERYONE.  But it should not be taught the same way to all.  We will determine which way may best start you off.  And when you are ready to sit, we will give you something to do.  Until Being takes Over.  Raja Yoga Practioner, teaching asanas, pranayama, deep meditation, samyama (for those ready).   Certified Advanced Yoga Practices Instructor, RYT 200 Yoga Alliance.

Coaching Food : a Gourmet with a Higher Vibration

Franc0-Japanese gourmet chef who taught cooking classes at age 12, who thought she knew EVERYTHING about food, who tested even extreme and difficult food programs for people who have cancer on herself such as Gerson Therapy (detox, juices, vegan, plant based, cleansing, distilled water, coffee enemas) for over a year, who cleanses with Ayurveda from the best Indian and Nepalese yogic doctors, who lives in three different cultures and has a family who has different food needs, brings to you a slow but steady journey with food to experience Joy, Mystery, and Awe about All Living things.

Coaching Art Expression for Being and Living Fully Now

Short meditations in the First Meditative Art Gallery in Singapore.  Meditate on a Painting or chose an Artistic expression best fit for you RIGHT now.  Meditate, Paint, Draw, Doodle, Experience the Anchoring of Black Ink and Color to Express Emotions, Desires, Dreams, Pure Joy and focus in the Moment. From drawing stick figures of difficult relationships or deep attachments, to Drawing Meditative Circles with a mantra, to doodling health concerns in the form of a picture, to Cranes Flying, finger painting or shodo to express an asanas or body posture, we draw, doodle and paint to release into the ink the unconscious.  To Liberate our emotions, joy and creativity.  Pure Joy in the Present.  No judgement or result.  Art experience or prior meditation experience is not necessary. 

Coaching Visual Learning for Getting the Full Picture

Meaning in Kanji for Kids & Adults.  Learn to Learn and See What You Think You Know : Grasping Better the Whole Picture aided with Joy, the Poetry of Pictures, Understanding Connections, the Power of Images.  Even if you Don’t Need to Learn the meaning of Japanese or Chinese Characters take this Course to See Differently, Holistically, Learn how to Learn Creatively.  Some use of Mind Maps for Connections, Anki Flash Cards for Recall, Geographical Memory Maps for Spatial Memory, Shodo Ink for the Senses, and most importantly Curiosity for All Things You Think you Know.

A Coach Aligning Body, Energy, Emotion, Mind and Spirit.  

Working on all levels to go Beyond Your Best.

From National Crisis

To Individual Transformation.

Watch the Video

I sought to create a small movement in Japan searching for a few individuals after the March 11th 2011 tsunami, earthquake and nuclear crisis who wished to use national crisis as a stepping stone to individual fundamental change.  I thought we could change a country.  

I realized I had to change Myself.

I continue that work focusing on inner transformation.  I also assist others to change themselves:  One individual at a time.
