Carrie from Nourishment for Body, Mind and Soul
I believe there is a place that exists within each of us that is non-changing, perfect, whole, and complete. In yoga, we call this place Purusha (Soul). Through our everyday conditioning (our up-bringing, culture, life experiences, religious beliefs, gender) we become disconnected from this place of Truth (Source).
It is through the gift of yoga and mindfulness that I began to reclaim my right to be whole and uncover my life’s path (Dharma). I began teaching yoga in 1998. In 2011, I began Realize Your Potential through Yoga & Mindfulness with the intention of helping women reconnect to their life’s dharma and create a life rooted in purpose, prosperity, and peace.

Dani from Life UnConstrained
Hi! I’m Dani. I’m a hippie, teacher, artist, and signal-booster. I help entrepreneurs and creative spirits getunstuck, clear, and focused, get pointed in the right direction, and use the momentum from previous successes to take action.
Why the mix of biz and personal? I’ve found through my own experiences, and through helping others, that the things that get in your way – the things that keep you from achieving success and creating a business (and life!) that you love – are personal. It’s personal change, personal growth, personal clarity that leads to a happy, healthy business. Read more here.
Jennifer from Fit for Expecting
My passion to work in the pre and postnatal field was sparked by witnessing my older sister and best friend give birth to a beautiful and healthy baby boy. After this life-changing experience, I became aware of the lack of exercise offerings in Southern California for pregnant women, the widespread misinformation and misunderstanding about exercise during pregnancy, and the need for exercise options that accommodate an expectant or new mom’s unique situation and schedule.
My passion, enthusiasm and drive led me to take a huge risk and start a specialized and unique business from the ground up. Fit for Expecting specializes in developing exercise programs for women at all stages of the perinatal period. The goal is to create programs that women will enjoy, be able to sustain and that will deliver the most benefits to mom and baby, taking into account and embracing any limitations and distractions that each woman faces.

Whitney from LiveRunLoveYoga
Hi! My name is Whitney and I have a passion for all things running and yoga! Join me as I share my lessons and experiences from years of running and yoga, the foods that fuel me and bits and pieces from a healthy lifestyle!
If I run long enough and hard enough I can always come to a place were I can just “be”. Running on a bad day always makes me feel better and running on a good day always makes the day just that much better. Whether my run is good or bad, rainy or sunny I am always happy to just be out running.
Yoga continues to invigorate my body. The flows and stretching poses are soothing and feel great on my often sore legs and help me build and maintain my strength. It calms and relaxes my active mind and provides another place for me to just “be”. The breathing helps to deepen the stretches and cleanse my mind and body. Each day I stop to take 3 Beautiful Breaths. Read more here.
