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!

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.

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!

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.

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 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!

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.

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.
