Hi, I’m Caren.
I empower sensitive, ambitious women who are stuck in self-doubt, worry and the fear of rejection in their work and relationships…
but who are so ready to reclaim confidence to use their voice, accept themselves exactly as they are, and create meaningful, heartfelt connections with others.
More than a decade ago, I embarked on a journey toward healing that began with my first yoga class. Now, I get to tell people that I came to yoga because of depression and I came out of depression because of yoga.
But that’s only a small part of my story.
My yoga and meditation practice shifted my perspective, retrained my brain and completely changed my life’s path – including my career.
Growing up, I knew I wanted to be a writer. That led me to a career in digital journalism and social media strategy in the health, wellness and lifestyle industry.
I was a high-achiever in high-stress environments, constantly striving toward perfection and becoming my “best self,” which led to burn out and reevaluating what mattered to me.
So I took a leap and became an entrepreneur as a yoga and meditation teacher. The problem? I brought the “old” me along.
I had a massive inner critic that didn’t let me enjoy my life (there was always something I “should” be doing) and made me afraid to show others who I really was (insert “You’re not smart/pretty/funny enough” here).
Two years ago, my work led me to the help I needed to finally overcome my struggle with feeling like I could never be good enough.
It changed the inner landscape of my mind, body and spirit so totally that I shifted the focus of my teaching to help other women realize this truth for themselves.
And it all started with a simple realization: “Live in your heart, not just your head.”
I’ve now taught and coached thousands of people — in person and online — to grow their capacities to hold the fullness of life. That means the light and the dark.
My clients quickly learn that it’s okay to be themselves no matter their emotions or beliefs, and still be profoundly loved and deeply connected with others.
If you take this journey with me, there are two key things you need to know:
- I believe that the events of our life aren’t happening to us. They’re happening for us. Everything has within it the seed for growth and personal evolution.
- I believe that you are whole and nothing needs to be “fixed” about you.
My job as a teacher and yoga therapist in training is to help you realize this for yourself so you can break free from self-doubt, worry and the fear of being yourself and step into the strength and confidence to handle anything life brings your way.
To start the process, register for my FREE video masterclass called “The 5 Shifts High-Earning Women Make to Overcome Self-Doubt and Fear (While Pursuing Their Big Goals).
This class contains everything you need to know to get started today on the path of self-compassion and confidence.
