CLOSE YOUR EYES AND IMAGINE IF...?
You got comfortable setting boundaries and were able to let go of people pleasing allowing you to be excited about your yes's and confident in your no's
You put away self-doubt, self-sabotage, and unworthiness and began to embrace your unique and beautiful self. Becoming a woman that recognizes, accepts, and loves yourself for exactly who you are and being proud to show up in life self-confidently and authentically.
You started using your voice more, no longer afraid to express your opinions or ideas. Truly beleiving that you matter! Your voice, opinions, thoughts, hopes and dreams matter! truly living in the fullness of who you are
You could kick up your motivation, get out of the feelings of being stuck and overwhelmed and were able to find new enthusiasm to reach your goals
You finally made your own health a priority and made the necessary changes that would give you more energy and stamina to do more of the things that you love
You allowed yourself to dream and set some new goals to become a happier, more fulfilled and passionate woman
What can you expect out of this course and this experience?
Helping you get to that place is exactly what the 5 month coaching course "Revive & Thrive Program" is all about. The course material is grounded in the principles of yoga. These principles, when put into practice are truly life changing. By first examining your current habits and patterns you will start to become clear on what is holding you back. Once the awareness is there my program will help you get very clear on what your core values are and very connected as to why you wish to make your desired changes.
Through our time together you will use the Mindset Trifecta ™ of meditation, journaling and yoga to help you remain calm and less stressed through the process. Additionally we will be using the work of Brene Brown to provide you with further tools to support you on this transformational journey.
Change can’t happen without a willingness and a proper mindset. Therefore, you will work on being more present in your life, trusting your inner wisdom, quieting your inner critic, and living life with more gratitude and joy. You will take a look at the thoughts, habits, and patterns that aren’t serving you and learn how to mentally declutter and flip your inner script to set you up for success.
We will come together each week for a group coaching call (unless you chose the 1:1 experience). On those calls we will share wins and aha's. Discussion will focus on the topic(s) for the week and how you can implement and apply them to your life to affect positive change. I will be there every step of the way to hold you accountable, be a sounding board, and be your biggest encourager. Additionally there will be a few private sessions sprinkled through out the course so can receive individual support and world class attention.
If everything in you is screaming HELL YES - I AM IN, click below to reserve your spot. You can choose between the small group experience or if you prefer more individualized and customized approach please purchase the 1:1 option. If this sounds intriguing but you still aren't quite sure if this is a good fit for you please book a consult call, where I can answer any questions you may have.

Kara covers so much that women need to understand about themselves and does so with obvious knowledge, experience, non-judgement and caring.
There were many "issues" I felt I needed to address before starting with Kara. This course did so in a logical and supportive manner. It's like I had a lot of this information before but never saw how it all connected. The program connected the dots and helped me understand that I could make my life better and love myself as everyone deserves to do.
There is no way to put into words all that I feel about Kara. She is one of the most amazing women I have ever met, and she has always made me feel as if I matter. She provides such good support and advice with positivity and hope.
After teaching my Beginning Yoga Workshop in-studio for years and experiencing the positive impact it has made in so many of my clients lives I've dreamt of making an even bigger impact. I am so excited to now be able to share this very impactful and valuable experience to woman around the world.
Begin your yoga journey here by building a solid foundation of pose alignment, proper breathing techniques, the value of meditation, and the incredible value of the yoga principles all without the intimidation of being a newbie at a gym or a crowded yoga studio.
You can choose to learn by completing the video series only, or you can boost your knowledge and confidence by upgrading to packages that include both private online Zoom sessions as well as small group yoga classes. This allows for a safe and comfortable learning progression.
After completing this work-at-your-own-pace course you should feel comfortable continuing on in my online group classes or being able to confidently transition into yoga classes at your local gym or studio.
