Meet Ruvi Makuni
Global Workplace Wellness Specialist
Certified Stress Master Associate
Ruvi Makuni is a Global Workplace Wellness Specialist and a Certified Stress Master Associate who is passionate about supporting organizations to empower their teams so they can thrive in their careers without sacrificing their health. To that end, she facilitates holistic and multi-dimensional wellness programs and initiatives in the workplace.
Earlier on in her Personal Training career, Ruvi conducted several workshops for an organization that was grieving the loss of an employee who suffered a heart attack at just 29 years old. During that process, she started to notice that many of the professionals were on a never-stopping treadmill, suffering physically and mentally from the toll of the go-go-go lifestyle. She thus made it her core mission to support the health and wellbeing of the organization’s employees so that they could still meet organizational goals without sacrificing their health.
Ruvi believes that developing mindful behavior practices to help address and manage stress within the workplace is crucial in helping employees perform well, while enhancing company culture, morale and productivity. After all, at one point or another, we are all faced with challenging and stressful situations, whether in our personal lives or at work. Although we can’t always control external stressors, we can control our response and reaction to them.
After seeing the detrimental impacts of stress on professionals, Ruvi’s primary focus and specialty has turned to helping organizations implement Stress Management practices, and helping employees embrace mindful supportive habits, behaviors and actions that can be applied in and out of the workplace to help cope with stressors.
These include but are not limited to understanding how to recognize individual triggers and warning signs, using the power of the Nervous System to manage, regulate and end the Stress Cycle plus engaging our relaxation responses before peak levels and burnout. She also guides employees to explore strategies for handling stress during uncertain times, while offering the best techniques for reducing and preventing stress from escalating. When you work with Ruvi, she will facilitate open communication and team camaraderie while helping establish a supportive culture within the workplace.
