Your focus is precious, what you do each day DOES matter.
How are your daily actions adding up to become the life you want for yourself?
Do you ever notice yourself…
- Loading up your calendar with so many responsibilities that you genuinely don’t have time to prioritize food and exercise the way you’d like to
- Forgetting to pay attention to what your body is telling you, let alone making choices to bring yourself into balance
- Feeling like you’re constantly being chased by the feeling of “I don’t have enough time”
- Genuinely uninspired with your food scene, like you just want to grab whatever is easy then eat it in the car
- Reaching for sweets, baked goods or alcohol when you’re tired, stressed or to the point of “I’m at my limit”
- Not wanting to get out of bed in the morning or having crap energy in the afternoon
- Fantasizing about being outside enjoying your day more than you actually are
- Feeling heavy and dull, like you wish you could press a reset button
- Wanting to “begin again” with the routines you know make you feel good but struggling to find the perfect time to start
It’s a bummer, sometimes the pursuit of “health” can actually become a roadblock to the joy and freedom you desire.
I hear people struggle with this all the time, they genuinely want sustainable change with their food, exercise and stress reducing habits – but it’s hard – because, well… life. Trust me, if you have a tenancy to make healthy changes for a while but then drop the ball, you’re not alone!
These people I talk to, they crave more consistency and follow through. They tell me they want more self-control or self-discipline.
They tell me about how they experience periods of getting on a “health kick” with food and exercise but then something will happen: a vacation, a busy kid schedule, a family or work upheaval – they get thrown off track.
They’re back at square one. Uninspired to start over.
The balance of making time for life duties, family and relationships and then on top of that eating right and exercising too, can become distorted, to the point of being a mental and physical drain.
The door to self-critique opens: damn, what’s wrong with me, why can’t I get this?
When there’s no enjoyment in the PROCESS of getting healthy, it all just feels like more work, more boxes that aren’t getting checked on the to-do list, more failed attempts, more reasons to feel like – you’re not doing it good enough.
Friends, life is too short to not “enjoy the ride”! Join us for a 14 day at home immersion. RESET your ability to offer yourself sweet care, loving boundaries and simple pleasure.
A concentrated dose of learning will shift your attitude and actions.
What if your health routines became engaging, an honest pleasure that you looked forward to?
You’d tap into sustained inspiration. Inner strength and steadiness would be the result.
Daily and seasonal routines are key to building and embodying vital energy! When you implement routines like this, you’ll tap into a certain kind of vibrancy, leading you to engage with life from a place of inner strength. Access to clarity and creative flow will happen more often. I bet you can imagine how nourishing this can be, not just for you, but for your people and projects too.
Change up your menu up with the seasons and you’ll get bursts of inspiration to explore new foods and recipes. These yearly milestones make food prep fresh and fun, say goodbye to the monotony! When you prepare simple, nutritious, whole foods you create a grounded lifeline for yourself – and others too if you cook for loved ones. Once you establish consistent, ease-filled kitchen routines the door to “balance with food” opens up quite naturally.
YOU are the key to steadily moving toward your desire. It’s up to you to create the sense of support, playfulness and confidence to get there. Movement, yoga and exercise offer you a tremendous advantage – they help you wake up each day looking forward to what’s ahead. Days like that add up to a gentle sense of gratitude for life in general – your creative work in the world expands as a result.

I know it’s hard to “begin again” when you feel like you’ve been here before.
It can even feel scary to commit to something, like there’s a risk involved.
Often we’re never 100% “ready” to start. But jumping in is key because here’s the deal: we learn by doing and we make change by doing – not by thinking about doing.
Adults are experiential learners.
It’s easy to nod our head in agreement while reading articles that are chalk full of great ideas about getting healthy, stressing less and loving yourself. It’s easy to buy the book about how to change, then let it get dusty on the shelf.
At some point we have to be willing to allow our efforts to be messy and imperfect, realizing that’s what change looks like.
Consistent, imperfect effort adds up.
At some point we need to lean toward our desire, practice courage, and step in. Ready or not, here I come.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What about my family? How do I get them on board with these food and routine changes?
You don’t! I mean, you might be able to in someways but it’s more ninja than it is direct. Here’s the scoop. Change you first – this is about you. When others see you making changes that make you feel good, that you seem excited about, they might ask – then you can share. In their minds, behind the scenes, your actions might inspire them to realize they want to make some changes too.
This doesn’t mean that if you have a family you’ll have to be making completely different meals for yourself! There will be a lot of crossover. You might want to add a bit of this and that for them. Or leave out some of this this or that here or there. When we get into the program you’ll have free reign to ask me questions up the wazoo to troubleshoot your own situations. In other words, we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it and I’ll hold your hand along the way. In the meantime you at least have to start walking toward the bridge.
Q: What do I have to give up? I do want to change but I really don't want to give up anything.
Uh, well. That’s a bit of a pickle. If we want change to happen, or we want to bring new fresh things into our life, quite often we’re going to have to give some things up. But – you don’t have to give up your favorite things and you don’t have to give up everything all at once. If you’re truly set that you don’t want to give up certain things, like Sunday morning waffles with whip cream or two glasses of wine each night or chips or you name it – we’ll work with it.
My aim is to help you, starting from where you’re at right now. One approach that works for some people is to only focus on “bringing in” new things, not letting go. Everybody is different, we all have our own forms of resistance to change. When we have our 1-1 conversation we can dig into your uniqueness and find the first small steps to take, choosing to focus on what feels the least overwhelming.
Q: I'm super busy right now. How much time is this going to take me?
In theory – if you’re super busy, slowing down, cutting out a few things and becoming more intentional about giving back to yourself may be what you really need.
That being said, a more literal response would be – it depends on how much you want to put into it. Even more literal than that, you could spend anywhere from 15 minutes each day to 2 hours per day.
There will be 2 yoga and discussion (live) videos that are about 30 minutes long, we’ll have 3 – 45 minute Zoom video calls; you’ll need to schedule those things into your calendar. The rest of the “time” you put into it is self guided and will vary depending on how deep you want to dive in.
Q: What if I have dinner dates and parties during this 14 day time frame, can it still work for me?
Yes, absolutely! You can work around special events and in the long run this is exactly the point – what matters most is what you do MOST of the time, what you do OCCASIONALLY is not as important.
I’ve designed this Spring Reset course so that it has a structure to follow but so that it also has a “sliding timeline” in terms of when you start and finish. I want it to flex to your schedule.
Q: Is this a detox?
Well it depends on what your definition of detox is and again, how deep you want to take it. I’ve built into the program an optional detox but this is an Ayurvedic detox that is more nourishing than it is depriving, if you want to include this part of the Spring Reset into your experience it can be anywhere from 1 – 4 days long.
There are all kinds of reasons why Ayurveda is a big proponent of this kind of seasonal detox in both the Spring and Autumn – within the Spring Reset curriculum I’ll teach you the “why” behind all of this and of course I’ll teach you the “how” as well.
But – again – the detox part of the Spring Reset is optional! You can leave it out completely and still get a ton out of this program: you’ll be eating new spring based foods, trying on new recipes, checking out what spring specific yoga is all about, learning how to optimize exercise during the season of spring and so much more.
Feeling heavy, sluggish and unmotivated at this time of year is not as personal as you think. These are common qualities that show up in spring, letting you know that kapha dosha is out of balance.
Can I offer you a hand?
In this course I will teach you to recognize out-of-balance qualities in your body and how to come back towards your thrive, then *for next year* you’ll be more equip to mitigate them before they take hold.
Saying yes to the Spring Reset experience means you’ll be choosing and taking actions to move yourself closer to what you want for your body, mind and soul.
