A transformational self-paced business and personal development program combining spirituality, conscious communication, nervous system regulation, and emotional liberation and mastery.

 The 12-week curriculum includes instructional videos, adjoining practical exercises, guided meditations and breathwork, and mentorship and teachings from some of the most powerful business and personal development leaders.

Feel like an imposter? Burnt Out? Overwhelmed?


These are happening due to unprocessed trauma and a dysregulated nervous system that leads to misalignment in your life and business.

Making more money from a place of alignment, joy and deep fulfillment, and living a connected, loving life happens when we learn how to process emotions and regulate our nervous system.

Then, it all becomes easy!




And we've been where you've been and utilized these simple & practical tools, teachings and mentors we are about to share with you to build our business & to enhance our life.


Hi, I'm Natalie.

I wanted to share a bit about my long journey to becoming a coach. 

First, I was a high school English teacher. Then, I was laid off in the CA teaching budget. And, then I created a low-calorie cocktail mixer because I was drowning my teaching sorrows in a margarita and realized I could make it better (true story). 

Creating Bare Organic Mixers was my first step into becoming an entrepreneur. Those were the days when I couldn’t even spell “entrepreneur” without sounding it out as I was writing it. 

I spent 8 years of my life wearing all of the business hats and learning all my life and business lessons the hard way through my failures and mistakes.  After learning how to create, brand, and market, I sold the company 

One day, I woke up and realized that I was completely burned out. I spent my entire 20’s building a product-based business that I was proud of but no longer inspired by. 

I felt like I was constantly pushing a boulder up a hill, and I finally recognized that I needed to be in alignment with my mission to feel peaceful and be successful. I set an intention to sell the company, and 6 months later, I did. 

Then, I assessed what I really wanted to be doing with my life, and I decided that I wanted to teach people how to be happy and how to personally develop from the inside out. And that’s just what I manifested. 

I teach a communications course called The Pursuit of Happiness at UCSD. I also coach corporate companies and entrepreneurs using a step-by-step process I developed called “The Alignment Method” in how to consciously communicate to create alignment on their teams and increase profits. 

I am happy to say that I love what I do every day, and I feel very much in alignment. I am so excited to partner with Marina and co-teach the content we’ve both learned the hard way, so you can learn it the easy way and find success and fulfillment in the most efficient and effective way.

Hi, I'm Marina.

I've been a coach for 6 years now, and when I started, my journey looked like jagged ups and downs (with a downward trajectory).

Back then, every little rejection in my business would TAKE ME OUT.

My life looked like a consistent, predictable graph of ups and downs, based on the money coming in + the clients saying yes to working with me.

It felt terrible internally, and externally - I wasn't getting the money and fulfillment I wanted so much.

I sensed in my gut that I am meant to create something huge and world changing, I'm meant to impact thousands of humans, but it just wasn't happening.


I discovered somatic work. Nervous system work from within the body changed the trajectory of my entire life.

When I learned how to self soothe and regulate my nervous system, when I started to heal a lot of trauma that actually drove my reactivity within my business, both my life+business blew up (in a good way;))

This is what it looks like now:

Clients pouring in.

I shifted my business from nutrition coaching -> nervous system trauma healing work (felt so much more aligned!) and run my business based on intuition and inspiration, not pushing and forcing

I created deeper intimacy with my partner

I made way more money than I ever expected, and easily!

And I laughed more. So much more.

And when I didn't laugh - I knew what to do so that it wouldn't take me out and shut me down for days.

I am ridiculously passionate about this work.


Because I believe in trauma-informed coaching. I believe this is the medicine the world needs, and YOU have that medicine to deliver! I believe that when you learn to really process your own trauma, the light you emit in this world will become magnetic and unstoppable, and everything will feel so easy.

When you start leading in this way, your leadership becomes your own medicine & others' medicine. It helps you get the business results you want, and it helps you mentor others to do the same simply through your own presence and example.

If You Are...

A service-based entrepreneur who feels stuck instead of in flow

Elevate your business and bank account to the next level
