We've been conditioned to think something is wrong with us, we're broken, and what's on the outside is more valuable than the inside.

I'm a disruptor - here to break down the lies and bullshit, including old patterns and habits that are no longer serving you. I'm here to show you how to start trusting yourself. 

Trust you are a good mom.

Trust you don't need to be on a diet.  Ever again. 

Trust your intuition, you know, that "gut" feeling.

Trust that you are beautiful. Trust that you deserve more.

Trust that chasing numbers will never lead to happiness.

Hey there, thanks for stopping by! I believe the obstacles we face, AND how we react and learn from them are what makes us who we are.  At the depths of our pain and suffering, we might not understand why.  Divine timing and reasoning will eventually be revealed.

~ My first back surgery was 20 years ago, it gave me the power to realize my lifestyle was what put me on that operating room table, and I had 2 choices - change my lifestyle or be back on the surgical table in 3 years (according to my neurosurgeon).  

~ Finding out I was pregnant gave me the time to question and the clarity to see why I was using alcohol to cope, to find the root of my anger, and see the influence it also had on my depression.  I've been sober for almost 10 years now.

~ Already feeling shame from having a c-section, then struggling with breastfeeding had me consumed with guilt from completely failing at this mom thing.

~ As excited I was to be blessed with two kids, our second child really triggered my deep rooted feelings of never being good enough. As much as I tried to please him, he had a completely different demeanor with me.  I wore myself out to the point of exhaustion trying to anticipate his needs, be in control, be a good wife, and at the same time not neglect the needs and feelings of our first child.  I was mentally and emotionally drained from doing too much for everyone else and neglecting my own needs. 

 

~  Leaving my family for a month-long yoga teacher training in Peru ended my breastfeeding journey with our son, filling me with some serious mom guilt. It wasn't until after I came home, I realized my time in the Sacred Valley and climbing Machu Picchu Mountain, showed me strength I never knew I had and fueled my newfound love of cold showers!

~ Looking around and talking to other moms, it seemed they all had this mom thing figured out. Well behaved children, a loving relationship with their spouse, their appearance was flawless and beautifully put together.  Meanwhile I can't get my kids to listen to me, they hated everything I tried to get them to eat, I didn't have the energy to make it 20 minutes into watching a TV show or movie after the kids went to bed, let alone enough to be loving and intimate with my husband, and let's not even talk about my inability to style an outfit so I just stuck to what I know best - yoga pants.

~ The recovery from my second back surgery (from changing my lifestyle I made it 19 years without issues and pain free) almost two years ago sent me down the darkest depressive spiral I have ever been down.  After my ninth cycle of not washing my hair for at least three weeks, I became aware of my patterns and felt compelled to make a video revealing my struggles I had been hiding.  Publicly posting this video flooded my inbox with messages from other women thanking me for my bravery and being their voice.  They also thought they were the only ones going though this.  I also discovered the deeper reason behind the passion I have for fitness; my mental health depends on me moving my body.

I could have allowed each one of these to destroy me.  Letting them be the excuse I didn't or couldn't do something.  Instead, I learned from them.  These, and many other experiences not only shaped me, they became the foundation for my business and why I created my programs to help other moms.

We are all uniquely individual and should be treated such. You are not given a cookie cutter plan to follow with my services and programs .  You will discover how to reconnect to yourself, radically re-define your self awareness and acceptance, tune into to your body and it's needs, and we will develop a plan specific to you. You will be empowered to intuitively make changes to your plan to meet your needs as you enter a new season of life or goals change. 

Are you ready to drop the labels?  Ready to stop trying to fit into a box of what the perfect mom and woman is?
