Naked truth about your life
A SUICIDE survivor and motivational speaker will host two workshops on the Tweed in April.
By the age of 27, Rebecca Jaeger had been a rugby league cheerleader, a member of three Australian Softball Championship-winning teams and had a four-year job at the Great Barrier Reef.
After suffering a major back injury, Ms Jaeger's life was turned upside down.
“My back was so excruciating at times I would lie on the floor for days,” Ms Jaeger said.
During the worst of her pain, the star athlete tried several times to take her own life.
Now, Ms Jaeger has developed five unique empowering programs to inspire people to find their inner self.
The first of these, to be held at Greenhills on Tweed, is a women's workshop entitled ‘Raw – The Naked Truth'.
“It's not about getting naked, it's about life and preservation,” Ms Jaeger said.
“We preserve jams, wildlife sanctuaries and marine life so why can't we preserve ourselves to live a longer, healthy life.
“The motto of the workshop is, ‘it's none of my business what you think of me'.”
The two-day workshop will teach people how to improve their mental toughness, become emotionally resilient and flexible.
The program will also focus on eliminating toxic thoughts in the body and toxic relationships, she said.
Fifteen years after her personal crises, Ms Jaeger is studying for a degree in Social Science specialising in Sports Performance and Development.
She's also a toughness coach to V8 Supercar driver Steve Owen and Nascar rookie George Miedecke.
