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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
