Before founding Above the Grind, Aimee Reiss spent the majority of her career in high performing sales on Wall Street so she understands what it is like to work and exist in a frenetic, fast-paced environment and the costly toll it can take.
She became a Mindfulness Consultant and founded Above the Grind to help professionals who want to free themselves from the daily grind; specifically anyone who feels as if they are on an airport moving walkway (which seemed fun initially) but now do not know how to get off.
Aimee’s goal is to help others transition from distress and confusion to peace and clarity.
In the midst of movement and chaos, clients learn how to keep stillness inside of themselves.
- The body benefits from movement, the mind benefits from stillness.
- The best views come after the hardest climb.
- The goal of meditation isn’t to control your thoughts, rather to stop letting them control you.
- The mind is like water. When it’s agitated and swirling, it will become difficult to see. But when it calms down, the answer becomes clear.
Aimee offers tailored mindfulness solutions to fit each individual or business team’s needs via one-on-one consulting, group workshops, speaking engagements, and an accompanying e-course she created.
