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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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!
