My life has been a journey of peeling back layers, exploring a desire to truly know myself and discovering new depths of vitality, joy and power that lie within. Growing up, I knew the importance of good health, but I struggled to consistently translate this intellectual knowledge into my daily experience. Knowing what I could do to feel my best, but not embodying it, kept me feeling ungrounded and shaky in my confidence and self-worth.
After years of a one-way dialogue with my body, moving quickly, demanding productivity, positivity and perfection, and rationalizing what I felt to the point of not feeling, I began a daily practice of taking time to gently check in with myself. I spent time, however small, tuning into my body and practicing being honest about what I found—not an easy feat. I soon realized how disconnected I had become from my compass and most reliable teller of truth. As I exercised a willingness to learn, rather than run, from discomfort and stress in my life, I discovered that I have all of the tools within to cultivate alignment with that which allows me to feel my best.
Re-learning how to value and align with what I feel in my heart and body and to be more discerning about the thoughts that flow through my mind is a never-ending journey. Making the choice each day to be on this path allows me to create a life that is more in sync with my values and inner compass. As a result, I feel more joyful, confident, and clear in my work and life.
The Self-Care Lifestyle is built on the foundation of 15 years of personal growth work and a decade of guiding hundreds of professionals and 60+ companies as a health coach, workplace wellness consultant, and yoga teacher.
But more importantly, The Self-Care Lifestyle was born from my first-hand experience of this powerful shift. Realizing that I was not alone in my feelings of anxiety and disconnection, I created this program to guide high-achieving, caregiving womxn to shift their focus away from who they should be, so they can rediscover who they truly are.
Because when this happens, we’re able to be much more intentional about the way we show up, and the impact we have not only on ourselves, but also on our families, workplaces, communities, and planet.
