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.

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.

It works and the clients are coming in now!


This training is worth TEN TIMES what Kris is charging for it! I’m blown away by what I’m learning and the clarity and momentum I’m creating in my business. It works and the clients are coming in now!

If you’ve been waiting to share your “big thing” with the world, reach out for Kris’ help. You’ll be so glad you did.


In the 6 months I worked one-on-one with Kris, she helped me turn what was just an obscure idea into a living, breathing business of my very own. We fit all the pieces together, worked the kinks out, and in a very short amount of time I was able to create the funding and resources to employ several other yoga teachers. Now there’s a whole team of us bringing yoga to underprivileged kids in public schools. It was truly a seamless manifestation! The payoff wasn’t just emotionally rewarding, though. Financially, I was able to stop renting/trading for my living situation, and I’m proud to say I’m now the owner of my very own home! Evidently Kris is right... “Abundant Yogi” is NOT an oxymoron! If you’ve been waiting to share your “big thing” with the world, reach out for Kris’ help. You’ll be so glad you did.

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 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.

It was so helpful to be supported in coming to clarity and truly realistic goals that I can take action on.



I'm so grateful for my session with Kris. I didn't realize until my session with her how badly I needed help drilling down on my goals. Now I can see that the way I've gone about creating my vision and setting goals up to now has been way too loose and unspecific. Because of that I've felt unclear and overwhelmed a lot of the time, and haven't gotten the traction I wanted – and that's led me to feeling obligated and guilty, as though I need to be working on my business 24-7 and can never just relax and be with friends. It's exhausting. It was so helpful to be supported in coming to clarity and truly realistic goals that I can take action on. I know now that the confidence I've been seeking will come as a RESULT of sticking to the daily baby steps that are required to get me to these newly refined goals.

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.

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 am so grateful to my AY sisters who have helped me to stay focused and have held me accountable on a weekly basis...



I realized today that I have created, and have been living the flexible schedule I was dreaming of 2 years ago. AND, I've been living that schedule for almost a year now! I can get so caught up in what I haven't done yet, sometimes I forget to reflect and acknowledge what I have done. I am so grateful to my AY sisters who have helped me to stay focused and have held me accountable on a weekly basis. This training with Kris has transformed my life!
