SMA is about sustainable results

High stress work environments aren’t the problem, the problem comes from how people perceive & operate within them.  SMA is a systematic approach that addresses every angle of these unique environments and supports the longevity and success of each person within it.

The SMA program was developed over the past 10 years as a practical solution to balancing high performance work environments.

The program roots grew from the busy floor of a finance firm, eventually finding its way down to Costa Rica where it morphed into a popular Stress Management retreat program that catered to burnt out corporate clients.

SMA programming has been delivered to hundreds of corporate clients throughout Canada, the United States and on-site at the exclusive wellness center, Sanga Retreats, located in breathtaking Playa Esterillos Este, Costa Rica.

Founder and creator Jamie Wood took a sharp left from her growing career in Finance back in 2008 and began studying the intricacies of the mind/body connection and the stressors permeating modern day working environments.

She has studied the science and art of Self/Stress Management with world renown mindfulness teacher Maitreyi Yogacharini, as well as worked along side behavioural neuroscientists while serving as a researcher with the BC Cancer Association.

Her successful corporate wellness program, “Stress Management through Awareness” (SMA), seamlessly integrates neuroscience and awareness techniques into practical tools for everyday use.

Her past experiences working for industry leading financial institutions provides an “insiders” perspective to operational management, team dynamics, and the unique culture of demanding industries.

Her popular speaking engagements throughout North America are widely praised for their ability to arm attendees with the education and tools to manage stress and build resilience in the workplace.
