Ready to explore the game-changer in all that you do?
It starts with alleviating stress—the anxiousness, overthinking, overeating, and restless sleep.
It's learning how to respond to change—especially when life throws a huge curveball, as with our current global pandemic.
It's seeing change, even when it appears undesirable, for the silver linings it brings.
That's the beginning of what mindfulness will bring to your life.
As you continue to practice, you’ll see how mindfulness alters how every experience, big or small, is going to unfold.
It brings more possibilities into your life—in health, relationships, connection, and adventure.
Let's not forget the inner peace and outward happiness.
Think of it as continuous opportunities to expand how you show up to life—who you want to be.
Do you want to deepen your connections with others?
Get so comfortable in your skin that you unapologetically shine your light into the world?
How about begin doing all the things in life you've dreamed about doing?
Yes, it's that profound.
Two things we know.
First, everything begins in the mind, with our beliefs and intentions determining the actions we take.
Second, change is inevitable. Everything in life is in motion, including us. We’re designed to evolve, expand, and explore new ways of living—of being.
So, wouldn't it be amazing to know how to create a healthy mind and a way to flow with change, and even intentionally welcome it?
In this program, I share that exact process with you.
What makes this experience unique is that I draw from neuroscience, quantum physics, yogic traditions, and spirituality—a true holistic approach to life.
It's mindfulness with a soulful twist.
It was inspired by my own healing journey and the key practices that continue to transform my life as well as the lives of those I have the pleasure to work with.
It’s a way to pause and begin seeing life with fresh eyes—first to alleviate stress and then ultimately to begin living from our higher Self.
It’s the willingness to change our minds, as we’re capable of new beliefs, thoughts, and emotions at any age.
It’s about going beyond presence to becoming more insightful.
The truth is, no matter what you wish to experience in life, it begins with mindset.
It can be related to health, nutrition, fitness, relationships or work-life balance.
Come join me and explore how living mindfully is the game-changer in all that you do.
My intention behind this program is to help you:
Discover ways to express love—whether through kindness, acceptance, patience, honesty, generosity or compassion
I understand that bringing mindfulness into your life may be challenging. We've been rushing through our days on autopilot for years, even decades. Please be compassionate with yourself. Know this is not an intellectual process that you must get "right". This is about having a direct experience with Life—with your deepest and highest Self. It's about awareness instead of judgement. It's intuitive instead of intellectual. It's allowing instead of forcing.
Living mindfully brings improved health, inner peace, more connection, and an openness to Life and all its inevitable changes.
Are you ready?
You will receive videos on the steps to mindful living. The intention behind each presentation is to understand the whys behind the strategies, learn the techniques and how to implement them into your daily life.
Turning theory into practice is a requirement to mindful living. After watching each step's video, be prepared to take action and experiment with the offered strategies. Each step's strategies will create a foundation for the next so that at the end of the program you will have a well-rounded mindful practice.
A PDF summary of the practical strategies is available. Download it. Print it out. Put it on the fridge. Use it to familiarize yourself with the practices and then as a refresher for future use.
Inside the program are opportunities to ask questions, clarify what you're learning, what resonates, and what appears challenging. I am in the program and will personally respond to what you ask or share. You are supported throughout the program.
More videos. More content. More strategies. Here is a deep dive into soul living—cultivating intuition, insightful awareness, and what it means to live from your higher Self. Conversations include flowing with Life, emotional intelligence, trust, collaboration, and the universal connection of everything.
Sometimes we need some extra support and guidance to practice mindfulness. Here you'll find guided meditations based on key understandings to alleviate stress and anxiety—ones that to me, have been life-saving. Themes include openness, focused attention, releasing judgement, cultivating patience, protection, connection, courage, presence, creating possibilities, and chakra balancing.
Nutrition and sleep directly impact our ability to practice and live mindfully. Here you'll find food strategies for brain health and health-supportive sleep practices. Let's keep the mind sharp and our sleep restorative and energizing.
As you create a mindful lifestyle, an interest to deepen your understandings and live your truth will arrive. Wanting to support you on that journey, I will continue to drop more content, videos, practices, and meditations. Let's begin with the foundational work and then elevate who we are and how we show up to Life.
Begin the program. Go at your own pace. Go back, review and continue to ask questions. Check out what's newly added. You have lifetime access to the videos, resources, and support forums. Know that creating a mindful lifestyle requires revisiting and practicing. This lifetime access will provide that continuous support.
I've been in the health and wellness industry for 25 years. My work began in the laboratory departments of neurology and immunology where I assisted in Parkinson’s, AIDS, and cancer treatment studies. I then shifted to working as an exercise physiologist and nutrition consultant as I wanted to connect with the actual person who was challenged with illness.
For over two decades I have witnessed first-hand the impact of cardio-respiratory disease, diabetes, cancer, Parkinson’s, autoimmune disorders, hormone imbalances, digestive dysfunctions, obesity, and anxiety have on everyday living.
Thankfully as someone who loves to learn, I continue to stay immersed in the latest research and scientific advancements so I can offer the best strategies. Being passionate about learning, I also share through speaking engagements for allied health professionals and community members around the world—for organizations that include IDEA Health & Fitness Association, Fitness Innovations Thailand, Canadian Fitness Pro events, Hofstra University, Golden Door Spa, and Apple Inc..
In addition to my professional experiences, I had my own health crisis—one that required I step out of mainstream approaches to heal. This is when I learned about traditional Chinese medicine, yogic traditions, spirituality, neurobiology, and quantum physics. Boy did my life change! As well as how I am able to help others heal. It expanded my perspectives, challenged belief systems that no longer served, and provided me with the answers.
The answers to...How do we truly heal? How do we create long-lasting sustainable health? How do we make this life experience fulfilling? And on the deepest level, live our truth?
That’s what I share in this program. It’s a combination of 25 years of education, research, trials, and experience. I personally get where you are in this moment. I see YOU. I know the struggle and would be honored to guide you toward the health and life you truly wish to be living.
"My weight had been up and down my entire life. I spent a lifetime trying any diet I could get my hands on. Many times incurring in extreme exercising or diets with fast but never lasting results. By mid 40s my body started to change and nothing seemed to work. I was at my heaviest weight in years, like many my work stress was also at an all-time high and there was no time left for exercising. I was lost and couldn’t find a way forward. A friend of mine recommended Teri and with her I started a journey to health and healing. The plan was simple, not a diet but a lifestyle change. This included a different way of eating and exercising but most importantly ensuring my mind and body found balance. I trusted the process and closely followed Teri’s instructions, teachings, and recommendations. Very quickly I and those around me started noticing a drastic change not only in my body but most importantly my mind. I found my inner balance and for the first time in years I was at peace. This internal process naturally reflected on my body as I started to eat, sleep, and live a better, healthier life. I finally understood that living a healthy life requires my daily active engagement and to ensure this I now have the tools that will last me a lifetime. Teri literally changed my life and I will forever be thankful to her for the gift of health."
"Working with Teri was one of the best decisions I ever made. At a time when I didn’t think I had a moment to spare due to work deadlines, Teri was unflinching in her commitment to have me widen my scope, expand my focus, become more fluid with time, people and circumstances, and not only teach me life-changing daily practices, but be an abiding presence with guidance, lessons, and moral support too. I’m happier with my diet, sleep better (through the night, rather than interrupted); I feel well and healthy. Whether from better sleep, a deeper understanding and new habits of diet, cooking for myself again, or the synergy of all this and more, I’m finding I’m making better choices day to day, and even my intuition also seems more tuned in or “available” than previously—experiencing less anxiety and fear. I look forward to continuing work with Teri whenever I can—so much more to learn. "
"There is a saying in yoga that when the student is ready, the teacher appears. Lucky for me, I attended two of Teri's sessions at an IDEA Personal Trainer Conference. Since those sessions I've taken one of her online courses and have worked one on one with her. As I drink my scallion tea and now cook things I never dreamed I could, I include meeting Teri in my daily gratitude list. I'm warning you that her intuition is frighteningly accurate. Her understanding of eastern and western approaches to nutrition is encyclopedic. Her ability to transmit that knowledge at lightning speed is trance inducing and you are going to make changes and feel better whether you want to believe her or not. The craziest thing is you are going to love every minute of it. Her enthusiasm is boundless and her laugh lightens an entire room. Just commit and find a way to connect with her. Make yourself a ready student and hang on. Healing just became fun!"
"Teri redefined what holistic meant to me. She encouraged an exciting, refreshing new approach that healed me on many different levels. She helped me in every way that I hoped, in several ways I could have never anticipated and in many areas I thought I was genuinely beyond help. She shared that my challenges were all connected and actually told a story. Teri brings together an eastern and western approach like nobody else does. She has an enduring, positive energy and she envisioned my success before I even started. I'm forever grateful for how she's helped me change my life. "
"A friend recommended I talk to Teri after I dieted myself into a corner, an unhealthy one at that, and totally disconnected myself from food and the pleasure of it. Of course, that was just one part of the problem, but I didn’t know at the time that body and soul are related and cured at the same time. Little did I know my life was about to change. She taught me about what-when-how to eat and I went from disliking food to cherishing every meal. But my journey was so much more than that; she also generated an awareness and gave me the tools to heal my soul and lead a healthy, balanced and much more peaceful life. The route has not been easy, she encountered resistance and doubts, yet managed to keep me on track in a very gentle, kind and most resolute way. I am so very grateful Teri, for your guidance, support and patience, you gifted me the insight and tools to lead a life I didn’t think possible. I’m happy and healthy and full of life. Thank you!"
"Unknowingly from the moment I stepped in to Teri’s session, The Hidden Messages in Food, I knew it was no mistake that I was in the right place at the right time. Personally, I was on a journey for a few different reasons, ultimately to discover ways to help improve a chronic health condition. Little did I know that food, FOOD: How, what, when, and who I was eating with was about to be challenged and forever changed. Let’s be honest, this was scary, overwhelming, and uncomfortable. No one wants to be questioned on their food choices, or the deeper meaning of those choices. Especially if you are a picky eater, like me! Working with Teri was so much more than changing a grocery list. I was able to: step outside comfort zones, understand why I was eating/not eating certain foods, and ultimately, challenge habits that no longer served a purpose. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to have worked with Teri-an amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone. Teri has helped me become the best version of myself. Overall, I cannot say enough about how this experience has shifted what I think is possible, and how I feel on a daily basis. All for the better! Not to mention the greater mental clarity and weight loss."
"I feel very fortunate to have worked with Teri over the past 3 years. She always challenged me just enough, working with my personal needs and pace. In addition to her expertise in the exercise world, Teri meant so much more to me with her knowledge of Eastern healing systems. She understood my anxiety about health and other issues and handled it always with the right sense of humor, helping me to see it all in perspective. She has definitely made a positive impact on my life and has been an important part of my healing journey. I, wholeheartedly recommend Teri to anyone who is looking to make a positive change in their lives."
"I like to think of my time working with Teri as “My Journey to Happiness”! Teri taught me so much! My initial interest was learning about nutrition and losing weight. I’m so happy that I chose the holistic approach, because during my journey I learned that while it is important to be physically fit and maintain a healthy weight; it is just as important (maybe more so), to be emotionally well. Along with my weight loss, I no longer have heartburn issues, and less low back and shoulder pain. I am also more relaxed, less anxious and my self-talk is better. I feel a sense of peace. I will be forever grateful to Teri for leading me through my journey to happiness – truly one of the best experiences of my life!!"
