Others are Saying...

Lynn Marie is insightful, caring and wonderfully knowledgeable about living holistic wellbeing. I've attended her retreats, practiced yoga in her group classes, enjoyed her yoga walks and hikes and done reiki and a sound bath. All are wonderful. But the biggest benefit I've received has been through my one on one wellbeing coaching sessions. She has a wonderful way of listening and providing personalized coaching that fits precisely what my body and mind need at that moment. I highly recommend working with Lynn Marie.


Des Moines, Iowa

Meeting Lynn Marie as a client in 2008 was one of those gifted moments in life when you meet another being who is determined to walk their talk - you know "one of those heart warming moments" that validates you are being and doing exactly what you are meant to be doing and being! Watching and working with her over the past 8 years has been an amazing journey.

The dedication and attention Lynn Marie has given and continues to give to her intentions of personal growth through experience, education and mindfulness has empowered her personal journey. By stepping out into her community as a wisdom teacher she is offering those lessons learned and much more to you. If you are reading this, you are that individual seeking their own expansion of consciousness, how to use mindfulness in your attention to your intentions of personal growth, balance, harmony and embodiment of well being. I would invite you to ignite your own unique "spark" - gift yourself by learning from and working together with Lynn Marie - you will be empowered and grow beyond your wildest dreams!
