Those who attend a Wordshop leave the session with an unequivocal truth or mantra that helps them change their chatter to better navigate life’s challenges.
“Out of all of the seminars that I have been a part of, very few have impacted me so practically and profoundly! Christine D'Ercole has such a beautiful way of telling stories that gets to the heart of what we need to hear. I, along with most other people, struggle with the way that I talk to myself - and this impacts so much of how we show up in the world. Attending Christine Wordshop has helped in developing my own mantra that is easy to use and relevant in every situation. Whether I'm trying to make it up a hill on my bike or preparing to do a presentation in front of a large group of people, thanks to Christine, I know that my mantra will help me succeed. I'm so grateful to both Christine and my company for bringing this into my life!”
“Let’s Talk about Christine. I AM a fan. The first time I took her class I was drawn in from her professach approach to fitness but also her magnanimous personality. I CAN tell you she is top notch and really cares about every person she touches. I WILL say that I have been in the health and fitness business for about 30 years and Christine has made an indelible mark in this arena. I DO know from my personal relationship that she is doing exactly what she was put on this planet to do. Be of service and help people.”

“Through our own self-talk, we can be both our harshest critics and our greatest cheerleaders. Most of us have a tendency toward the former, but Christine's gift lies in helping people to draw out the latter in ways that feel natural, creative, and playful. She has an uncanny ability to help you become a better friend to yourself; something we need more than ever in these trying and isolating times.”

“As a writer and a teacher of writing, I am notoriously a tough sell when it comes to any workshop involving work with words. Christine is a unique, compassionate and powerful guide, offering through her Wordshops, a way for people to examine habitual patterns that are no longer serving them, truly understand that changing the chatter and exercising self-love are NOT gifts to be given to us if we are "good" enough; these practices are part of our birthright as humans, and we don't have to earn them. Her signature way of combining participation, concrete exercises, and deep listening will transform anyone who attends, no matter who they are.”

“I am. I can. I will. I do. I hear these words in my head all the time now. They have become part of my brain's retraining, and they are now part of my growth toward greater self-kindness and belief.”
Grateful Wordshop Participant
"What I appreciate so much about Christine's teaching style is that it is rooted in actual human experience, not hollow social media memes. Anyone can talk the talk, but Christine has walked the walk. Or pushed the pedals, as the case may be. She also has a knack for helping her students embrace the discomfort, which ultimately leads to the greatest gains. Her Wordshops and my Style-Esteem workshops share a common theme: What we tell ourselves becomes truth so make sure you're the one defining and refining your message."
