Welcome, beautiful being.
I'm so happy you're here!
I am Jeannette, a passionate empowerment coach, a non-performative yoga teacher, and a textbook type B personality. I live for long walks in the wild and sleeping under the stars. I'm the girl you can count on to bring the snacks and your Jackie of all trades.
My true passion lies in Women's Empowerment Coaching and Helping individuals find harmony in their nervous system. My soul ignites through guiding people back home to themselves, into embodiment and connection.
I use a combination of techniques including connection to breath, embodiment, movement as medicine, mindfulness, Sekhem energy healing, neuroscience, esoteric concepts, yogic philosophy, and trauma-informed education to guide my clients safely into the parts of themselves they have not been willing or able to see so they can love them back to life.
I am here to nurture individuals into fearlessly transcending the stories they have been telling themselves that keep them stuck. I help individuals release personal blockages so they can authentically and confidently connect back to themselves and show up fully in their life. My commitment is to live as my authentic self and constantly dive deeper into the expression of the various layers of my inner lotus so that my clients feel safe, empowered, and free to go there themselves.
We often get so scared of judgment, rejection, and abandonment that we are not living to our fullest expression. Many of us never learned how to express ourselves, let alone love all parts of us!
My work has been guided by my journey back into my body through deep self-love, careful observation, and radical acceptance. I see and feel you because, at one point, I have been there or may still be there myself.
I struggled with body image, anxiety, people-pleasing, and low self-confidence from a very young age. I am a survivor of sexual trauma. I moved out of my parent's home at age 18, worked part-time, started college full-time, and held a 6-year relationship with my high school sweetheart. During this time, I felt invincible. I sensed I had been balancing my life with studying, working, and socializing. The truth was that I was hiding behind alcohol and a personality that just wanted to fit in. I started to lose myself to a lifestyle that wouldn't support me in return. It would soon break me.
The healing journey is one that truly never ends. I'd be lying if I said that a person could save you. The truth is that only you can save yourself by acknowledging the thoughts and patterns holding you back and a willingness to let them go. I remember how I felt at each moment along my journey, the struggle, loneliness, and lack of support. So it is my mission to help others to come alive within their entire being, free to live the life of their dreams, to dance through life with an open heart, tuned in and switched on.

After years of substance abuse and an abusive relationship, I decided to take a time out. Away from everyone and everything I knew. Away from my loved ones so I could discover how to inhabit my body once again. The person that was living in my body did not feel like me. I had aspirations, goals, and drive, but why was I living a life that felt dull and less-than? I didn't know it at the time that this trip would be the most life-changing decision of my life. I'd be landing in the land down under. No, not Australia, at least not yet. I had arrived in the farthest place I could reach, New Zealand.
Some people will tell you that they had an ego-death before their life changed radically. For me, it's taken at least two or three pivotal moments before I finally arrived at a time in my life when I have drastically changed for the better.
I finally learned how to take responsibility for my actions. I learned how to ask myself deep and painful questions so I could go deep in uncovering my wounds. Then came a tribe of people that would later became my family. A community that knew how to support me through this part of my journey. I found leaders that inspired me. People that were doing the work I had painfully put off. I learned how to peel back the layers and layers of the hard shell I accumulated over the years. I found a soft, sensitive, passionate, and absolutely badass chick that could do want she set her mind to do.
