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!

My DVD was just reviewed by Yoga Journal – I know Kris’ secret sauce had something to do with it...


Kris Ward has laser intuition and knows how to get to the core of an issue. When I was working on my DVD Foundations she helped me to identify what I wanted to share with my work. She offered a strong foundation for me to feel good about my product and get it out there. I’m super excited to say my DVD was just reviewed by Yoga Journal – I know Kris’ secret sauce had something to do with it. If you are looking for support and someone who gets the world of personal development, look no further. Kris is your girl.

Kris maps the way to success for many of our trusted teachers and entrepreneurs...


With a deep desire to nurture and coach wellness practitioners to create the life they deserve, Kris maps the way to success for many of our trusted teachers and entrepreneurs. The type of person it takes to have the know-how and presence to accomplish this great task is one that is steady, doing the deeper work, experienced, and has a level of compassion and courage that penetrates to the core. I've had the great opportunity to collaborate with Kris, to see her work her magic, and get to understand the depths of her mission. I'm truly excited to know that we're on the same team and I feel quite content for our community knowing she's a leader.

I adore Kris and the community of strong women that she attracts...


I have loved every minute of my experience in the Lifestyle Design Coaching Certification course (and all of the other juicy courses that come along with it). It has challenged me in many ways, and helped me really get clear on what it is that I want in all aspects of my life. I adore Kris and the community of strong women that she attracts. I have made lifelong friends and feel so very supported. Both of those are absolutely priceless.

If you want to get unstuck and see your REAL truth reflected back to you, work with Kris.


Just one coaching session with Kris moved me from my perpetual thoughts of ”I won’t achieve my dreams; I will always be dependent; I won’t be able to change the things I want to change; I won’t find my passion for life; I will always be stuck.” to “Wow, actually everything I want is much closer to me than I realized!”. Not only that, but Kris dislodged a resentful thought I’d been harboring towards a loved one for my entire life, and helped me turn it into a positive. It was a real ‘AHA’ Moment and definitely a contributing factor in my recent motivation, clarity, and steps towards designing a lifestyle I truly LOVE. If you want to get unstuck and see your REAL truth reflected back to you, work with Kris.

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!

My whole family is getting the benefit of my coaching sessions because we’re having more fun traveling and exploring new possibilities than ever before!


A really close friend who had worked with Kris suggested I take the plunge and do the same. I am so grateful for that advice! In just a few short months, I’ve let go of what I was previously forcing myself to do (an old, time- and money-sucking business that was going nowhere fast!), and I’ve rediscovered what’s alive in me––how I REALLY choose to live my life, the contributions I want to make, and the adventures I’m ready to create! My whole family is getting the benefit of my coaching sessions because we’re having more fun traveling and exploring new possibilities than ever before! Without Kris’ oh-so-dependable tough-love nudges and never-ending encouragement to play my biggest game, I’d probably still be standing right where I was before, and resisting every minute of it. Even though this kind of coaching is nothing like what I expected when I first signed up (I didn’t know what to expect, really), it was a much-needed surprise. She literally gave me my life back. And now it just keeps getting better.

I learned that I really could design my business exactly how I wanted and work with only the people I wanted to work with...


I learned how to be me and to use my strengths to run a business centered on me and my talents and desires. This was a new concept for me. I learned that I really could design my business exactly how I wanted and work with only the people I wanted to work with. I also learned how to really apply pleasure into my life–personal and business, and I really did learn why it’s essential. I didn’t buy into this at the beginning… it took me awhile. But Kris really hones in on this principle, and it came up again and again in business and my personal family life. This is a piece not taught in “strictly business” courses.

I only wish the time had gone by slower because I don’t want it to end!


Looking back over this past 6 months of coaching with Kris, I feel so supported and taken care of, I only wish the time had gone by slower because I don’t want it to end! I got everything that I needed and so much more. Before, I was always in a hurry, forever fixing what wasn’t working in my life... forever bending over backwards trying to please others and avoid confrontation. Stopping to acknowledge the positive things in myself and my life was not a practice that I embodied. Now it is integrated into my daily life. My business is growing, it’s more optimized and organized, and moving closer and closer to the point where it can run profitably and smoothly without me having to be there to do all the work (which is HUGE considering I’m about to have my first child and I really want my time at home). I learned to trust and fully accept myself, work smarter not harder, and also to steep in the good feeling emotions and really let acknowledgment in. I found graceful and honest ways to get through sticky points in my life. I cultivated a solid practice of self-care, nourishment, and tuning into and expressing my feelings and needs. Overall, I just feel solid, able to confidently navigate my way through whatever challenges may present themselves in Motherhood and business. I’m successfully standing tall in my own truth and brilliance as I continually evolve my business and life to the next level.

The programs gave me the oh-so-needed how-to's of putting form and action to ideas and truly empowered me to move forward from places I'd been sticky-stuck in for way too long...


I'm so grateful for my work with Kris, both through her stellar business programs and one-on-one coaching. The content and design of the programs helped me organize the process of caring for myself while getting my business going, which I'd never imagined was possible before. The programs gave me the oh-so-needed how-to's of putting form and action to ideas, and truly empowered me to move forward from places I'd been sticky-stuck in for way too long. Kris is also a queen of navigating the mindset development necessary to step forward in authenticity. Transformation always shakes things up, and life handed me challenges as so as I said "yes" to stepping into my powerful self. Kris helped me catch my Monkey Mind and turn back in to my deeper knowing again and again. My business is now designed to be a reflection of my true passion and calling, and my lifestyle is just what I imagined it could be (with room to grow!). The value of that couldn't be expressed in a number.
