Our philosophy is based on self-responsibility and our programs are designed for people who understand that experiencing the benefits of mindfulness and meditation takes consistent and disciplined effort.
If you are looking for the 'quick-fix' this is not the best choice for you. Although some practices will elicit a feeling of ease, calm, or healing in one session, the true benefits come from a regular, dedicated practice over a period of time.
What our Coaching Clients Have to Say
“Working with Christina has been life changing. I came to her seeking peace from my own cluttered and critical mind. I had huge impostor syndrome in my new role and her teachings taught me how to overcome this feeling and remain calm & grounded. I didn’t believe for one second that I could ever really quiet the thoughts in my head, but after a few weeks of consistency and just 5 to 10 mins of practice at a time, I began to heightening my awareness and started noticing the changes and results. Christina always provides great suggestions on coping or dealing with any feeling, situation or emotion that you might be going through. I am beyond thankful to have her and look forward to our sessions!” – Nicole Johnson, Entrepreneur and Nutrition Coach
“Working with Christina has been so beneficial to my personal well-being and how I interact with my team. I look forward to reading the newsletters each month and the opportunity to check in and learn from Christina. I love bringing this back to my team and chatting about ways we can implement the practices.”
– Marina Moro, Field Marketing Manager
“Christina has a positive, uplifting energy that is contagious every time I speak with her. She creates a safe space that I can open up in and pushes me to think about what is possible beyond my limits. I’ve enjoyed our monthly check ins and have stretched my creative and business goals because of them!”
– Meghan Larimer, Digital Designer
“I find the one on one sessions with Christina almost like I’m meeting with my own Meditation Mentor. She will listen and challenge the ways in which I’m working or doing things in my personal life to try & help bring more peace to my life. I’m very grateful that my company offers these services but even more so that Christina is the one who facilitates them!” – Shanna Lublin, Executive Assistant
“I LOVED my meetings with Christina every month. She truly honed in on my very specific situation, built an atmosphere of trust and professionalism, and provided realistic tools for me to use in my day-to-day life. She expanded on our plan each session, and her attention to detail was so meaningful. I am so appreciative for this resource provided for us, but more importantly, I’m grateful for Christina and her gift of mindfulness education.”
– Joni Ryan, Field Market Manager
“I started working with Christina in January 2018. Since then we have built a strong relationship full of guidance and support. Christina has provided me with specific tools I can implement in my life to better my well-being and approach to living a healthier, more mindful life. Specifically, her Mindful Month Take-Home’s have provided insights and support with incorporating meditative practices as well as specific ways I can better manage my energy and live a holistically healthier life. They are something I reference often. I have enjoyed working with Christina very much over the last year, and it has helped to encourage me to transform my life and to understand that I am truly in control of my thoughts, emotions and energy.” – Samantha Singh, HR Consultant
"Mindfulness should no longer be a 'nice-to-have' for executives.
It's a 'must-have': a way to keep our brains healthy, to support self-regulation and effective decision making capabilities, and to protect ourselves from toxic stress."
