Kwasi Boaitey LMSW, SAP, CASAC-1, ACC, RYT-200, NSCA-CPT is a dedicated wellness professional with over 15 years of experience. Kwasi is the owner of Upperlevel Fitness Inc. where his focus is using relational modalities of mindfulness and cultural humility to facilitate open lines communication, client resilience, and stress management. Kwasi comes to this work through experiencing 87,600 consecutive hours of incarceration - 774 of which were in isolation - in the NYS Department of Corrections. Kwasi has harnessed the skill of joyful discomfort through mentorship, loss, triumph, and friendship. Students often liken Kwasi to the constant gardener as he has learned how to cultivate the human spirit in places where others would offer that the soil is not rich with nutrients and there is limited light and water for growth.
