My life is a constant quest for people who inspire me and push me to grow.


Kris manages to light my fire, challenge my perspective, and stir the pot all while making me laugh, feeling like I’m at cocktail hour with a best friend.

Thank God I reached out to Kris!


Even after working with big name GIANTS like Tony Robbins and T. Harv Eker, although THEY knew my worth and talent (and utilized it to the fullest!), when it came to branching off on my own to become a private consultant, there was a giant block in the way. Thank God I reached out to Kris! After just one hour with her, I walked away with the tools, process and clarity to enroll my first client. It was my very first attempt and I signed her up ON THE SPOT – $1K a month for 6 months! I would’ve totally messed it up if it weren’t for Kris. Really, she saved me here!

I implemented the prescribed plan, doubled my rates and maintained all of my preferred clients...


I had been following Kris for quite some time when I heard her interview on the Yoga Teacher Telesummit. As soon as I heard that interview I took action, completing the exercise on Lifestyle Design that Kris suggested. In no time, I implemented the prescribed plan, doubled my rates and maintained all of my preferred clients. Thank you Kris for the upgrade in all areas of my life.

The year I spent with Kris and Secret Sauce Society was undeniably the most transformative year of my life..."


The year I spent with Kris and Secret Sauce Society was undeniably the most transformative year of my life - for my business as well as personally. I was stuck in a life and job that made me sad and left me unfulfilled, I was searching for a better way to live, to make my own work with meaning and needed tools to get there. I enlisted my employer to pay the cost of the ‘business training’ and got started on the road to my true calling. Although I didn’t know what it was going to look like on the set-out, I knew this was where I was supposed to be to figure that out.. I now have a clear vision and the complete set of tools to make it solid and profitable. With coaching from Kris and support from my new “sisters” I confidently made upgrades in my life to make this a reality!! I have my website, a list, clients and a path. I am on my way, baby! Not to mention, along the way I traveled to exotic locations and made ultimate drama-free lifelong girlfriends with whom I can truly be me... which is WAY better than a cherry on top!

I’ve made a huge shift and it’s affecting all areas of my life...


When I signed up for PhD I knew it was going to be life changing. But… I had no idea that just a few weeks into the course I’d have to face a loved one’s diagnosis of a life-threatening illness. Even though I became the primary caregiver for this family member, I was able to avoid panicking and doing something I’d regret later — like returning to a job I’d outgrown because of financial concerns. Instead I made life-enhancing decisions about my business that brought me “relief, hope & clarity,” in Kris’s words. With what I learned in just the first few modules of PhD I became more creative than I’ve ever been in developing new content and promoting my work, and that process has brought me so much joy. I am still riding that wave, despite the personal challenges I’ve gone through, and am so very grateful to Kris for her inspiration and guidance. I’ve made a huge shift and it’s affecting all areas of my life. It’s really been an awakening for me!

It is by far the greatest investment I have ever made in my personal and business life.


Before PhD I was stuck, dazed and beyond confused. Kris’ program is so ridiculously simple to understand! I was a previous student of Kris’ and loved working with her already. I had experienced so much personal growth by the time I dove into PhD I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do, and HOW to do it. PhD is a business in a box for anyone who is ready to spread their talents and skills out into the world. It is by far the greatest investment I have ever made in my personal and business life.

As a bonus, I lost 13 pounds during the time we worked together. Clearly, I LOVE this woman!


Kris is a super star! When I look back at this past year I smile because she has totally been my sunshine! I’m so grateful that she helped me move beyond the fear and embarrassment I felt around getting my TRUE story out into the world. I could tell her anything and everything (and I DID!), and no matter how scary it got, she always helped me get through it and come out on the other side feeling relieved and more equipped to move towards what I wanted. Now that I’m clear about what I have to offer the world––my authentic passions––everything I’ve been asking for just keeps falling right into my lap; invitations for all-expenses-paid adventures and vacations, more opportunities to teach Zumba and yoga, regular massage clients, and more and more people supporting and believing in me. Oh, and as a bonus, I lost 13 pounds during the time we worked together. Clearly, I LOVE this woman!

This is how I’ve always wanted my life to be. I can’t wait for each day. Thank you, Kris, for helping me see.


I am so grateful for my new attitude, thanks to Kris! I have such a new sense of self it is unbelievable. For the first time in my life I feel like everything is okay all the time. My sense of abundance and security are unwavering, regardless of what fluctuates around me. My moments of suffering are few and far between. There is nothing “bad” to focus on. I no longer have to rely on anyone or anyTHING for my happiness, and it’s freedom! Kris has taught me how to pull yoga out of me––in the worst of times and the best of times. She brings yoga into people’s lives not just in the sense of asanas but off the mat yoga. The true meaning of it has been flowing through me ever since we started working together. This is how I’ve always wanted my life to be. I can’t wait for each day. Thank you, Kris, for helping me see.

I would say that if I had expectations, Kris’s dedication alone exceeded those...


I had several reservations about taking the course due to the time commitments to other priorities in my life, the money, and whether or not I was even remotely ready to take this plunge. I was in school and that was my most important priority. But as the course started, it affected me in positive ways that I implemented right away with self-management techniques that I happily shared with family and friends! I am not a business oriented person to begin with, but I know Kris has been successful in her own work for many years and I KNEW that I was only letting fear and doubt stand in my way. I could let money be an issue, or I could take the leap of faith and push myself to consider what this will mean down the road. I thought: I can wait until my financial life is “better” or I can be in this moment with this fear, and TRUST that I will not drown, not with Kris in the boat! This work brought so much to me. I had no concept of how much it would open my eyes to new ways of thinking, working, and building a business in the internet marketplace. To build, by design, a business based on integrity, heartfelt authenticity, no frills and no BS marketing is MORE than I could have imagined. Plus, I now have my phenomenal Bhakti Buddies for life-long connections, networking, and even joint ventures! I would say that if I had expectations, Kris’s dedication alone exceeded those. I would recommend this course to anyone who is ready to get outside of the box and create serious change as an entrepreneur. There is plenty of information to learn, plenty of practice, plenty of support, plenty of love. Thanks, Kris!!

I love that all my insights were immediately applicable in reality...



My coaching session with Kris was full of eye opening moments, the biggest being when she assisted me in finding the exact resistance/block holding me back and actually relating to it -- processing it, versus continuing to fear/avoid it. To me, the exercise we did was a way of applying yoga to business in a more visceral way. It was really empowering and insightful. And I love that all my insights were immediately applicable in reality. I'm clearer now -- more than ever before -- that I can only go so far with teaching yoga. I'm more interested in really exploding my brand OR perhaps something like coaching to continue to evolve and grow my mission in a way that's more profitable and far-reaching. Thank you, Kris, for your generosity and service. I look forward to doing your LifeLaunch program with you!

I loved that we kept the focus on 6 months out versus 5 years...



The visualization exercise Kris took me through was simple, clear, precise and very helpful. I loved that we kept the focus on 6 months out versus 5 years or something, as it really helped me to feel connected to it, like it was REAL, coming just around the next corner, and I could really see myself there. It was the perfect exercise for helping me clarify both realistic goals and the specific obstacles that needed to be overcome, in my case an overall marketing inexperience and a tendency towards multi-tasking/putting too much on my plate at once. I also thoroughly enjoyed a discussion Kris and I had on the nature of fear, and walked away with a tool I can work with in my meditations that will
allow me to access the root of my fears, really sit with them, and yet not let them keep me from taking the actions that I know I need to take. That was incredibly enlightening. Thank you so much, Kris.

Thank you, Kris, for your help in getting me to a place of clarity around what will be truly realistic for me over the next several months.



I've gotten so much from just the handful of videos I've watched of Kris's, and I really enjoyed my session with her – so much came full circle for me. We covered a lot of ground, not only with fine-tuning my vision so it's doable and easy to break into bite-sized goals and baby steps, but also with uncovering and working through some deeply entrenched blocks and fears that have really held me back in the last few years. I now have a better understanding of why the fears are there, what they're keeping me from, what they're COSTING me, AND how to work through them in a way that will actually fuel me forward in pursuing my yoga therapeutics business (then eventually leaving my life-draining government job). Thank you, Kris, for your help in getting me to a place of clarity around what will be truly realistic for me over the next several months. And thank you again for the big AHA re: my stressful stories about what it means to not have a partner. Now I know how to address the stories and transmute them into energy for building my life on my own terms and becoming truly emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially self-sufficient.
