Judy Banks, Chopra Certified Master Educator

Stress Management & Mindful Lifestyle Coach

Owner @ Balance Your Life


Judy worked on Wall Street for 13 years as an Efficiency Consultant in Government Operations.  She worked crazy long hours, drank bottomless cups of coffee, and burned the candle at both end for years.  Twenty-four years ago, she jumped off that hamster wheel to raise her three sons and began exploring the Mind-Body connection and the field of Integrative Health.

Judy is a Chopra Center Vedic Master, having completed The Perfect Health Ayurvedic Lifestyle Program, Primordial Sound Meditation Instruction and the Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga Teacher training at Chopra University in Carlsbad, California. She is a National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Personal Trainer, and a Massage Therapist licensed by the New Jersey State Board of Nursing.  Judy is certified as a Health Coach with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP) through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and Purchase College, SUNY.  She also she obtained a certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University and the T. Colin Campbell Foundation, a program based on the theory that many of the diseases that affect Americans today can be prevented and even reversed through proper dietary and lifestyle modifications.

Life in the 21st century can leave us feeling stressed-out, exhausted, and overwhelmed.  We often lack the energy, the clarity, or the focus to initiate change in our lives. Working with Judy you will learn powerful techniques that will enable you to live a stress-free, focused, and empowered life. 

At Balance Your Life, Judy enjoys conducting fun, fact-filled workshops and seminars that present a 21st century approach to reducing stress, and understanding the connection between modern diet and lifestyle and how it affects our weight, our clarity and our lifespan.  In a  very confusing and fast-paced world, Judy is passionate about sharing the path of true health and balance. She currently works individually with clients and delivers workshops and seminars in personal and corporate settings.  She loves making living a healthy, balanced life, easy, fun and exciting!

Class Syllabus: 

The Introductory Session

You will be introduced to the basic principles of meditation, its history, and the importance of your mantra. The ultimate goal of meditation is to empower you to walk through your life in a place of peace and balance. In this session, we will discuss the role that meditation plays in creating a positive shift in the way you experience your world. Most importantly, we will cover the concept of karma as the"Software of the Soul" and explore how you can apply these concepts to your everyday life to affect positive change. 

Personal Instruction

Your personal Primordial Sound mantra is based on the place, date and time of your birth. This is your personal instruction session where you will receive your Primordial Sound mantra and learn how to use it.  We will walk through the process together until you are comfortable. You will then practice meditating with your mantra,on your own, based on what we have covered.

Perfecting Your Practice

In this session, you will learn the practical aspects of meditation. The where, how and why's of your practice will be discussed in detail. As we explore your experience and address your concerns,you will have the tools you need to begin meditating on your own. This will bean interactive class that will help you develop a solid foundation; one that will ultimately create a personalized approach to your meditation.

Taking Your Practice to the Next Level

In this final session of your instruction, we will explore different techniques to bring the benefits of your practice into your daily life.  We will discuss The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, Higher States of Consciousness, and various approaches that will empower you to walk through life from a place of peace, balance and simplicity.
