Meet the Instructors
I love coaches! Teaching coaches and writing music are my top passions – this is how I let my soul sing. I’m equally passionate about helping people find their own soul song and the courage to sing it. To me, your soul song is the unique expression of your inner wisdom. In my life, I used to mute my soul song and suffered chronic pain issues as a result. Often unable to play my violin and in debilitating pain, I researched and applied techniques to improve my mind-body connection. My return to health spurred me to teach and share these concepts with others who want pain relief, weight loss, a better body image, stress relief, or increased creativity. Now I am a mind-body coach, coach mentor, and musician who gets to help others rediscover the ability to truly hear their inner wisdom – aka their soul song. www.thehealthylifecoach.com
I am a master certified coach, instructor and mentor for newbie coaches who want to stop getting in the way of their own greatness (and start changing lives already!) and a life coach for women who are ready to illuminate their self-limiting patterns, and stride into an ultra-bright floodlight of purpose and meaning – at home, at work, and everywhere that matters. For more specifics, please visit my web site at www.jackiegartman.com.
As a Master Certified Coach, I dig entrepreneurs and weight loss clients. I’m a speaker, retreat facilitator, and author of Create Your Own Luck, Seven Steps to Get Your Lucky On and Jacked Up On Greens. I’m known for being lucky, full of energy, and being a “get things done” kind of mentor. Find me at www.shyatt.com.
My calling is to help people find and live their calling. I work with coaches who are creating their life’s work and people who are unhappy at work – helping them to define their authentic niche, outwit their fears and get on with the business of changing the world. I live in Quebec, Canada and I also speak French. My website is www.bevbarnes.com
As Chief Truth & Wellness Officer of the Truth Experience, I help others find their Ground Truth and follow their calling. Before becoming a coach, I earned an MBA and spent 20+ years in the business world. I love using my past experience to help others connect with the heart and soul of their business. My favorite part is nailing down a vision and watching a dream come to life in a whole, healthy and sustainable manner.
I am the Founder of a not-for-profit foundation whose mission is to transform maligned women into powerful citizens. I became a triathlete at age 50, and an in-demand coach, speaker, Yoga therapist, and author of The Indrani Principle: Inhale Life, Exhale Joy. I use ancient principles in combination with life coaching to help you create sustainable change.
I’m a master coach who’s helped hundreds of women determine their passions, values, strengths and skills, and coached them through the process of defining their ideal work and how to create it. In addition to coaching, teaching and speaking, I lead international adventure retreats that provide opportunities for deep personal work and connection with others. I excel at laughing at myself, know a divine wink when I see one, and have total faith in the restorative power of a good piece of chocolate and a great conversation.
Some people have described my coaching style as tough and tender. I don’t know about the tough part, but I do believe that helping you uncover your Truth without sugar-coating is the best possible thing I can do as your coach. It is a tender thing,this uncovering of the Truth, and so compassion, humor and respect are integral to that process. I believe that there’s nothing wrong with you, the work I do with clients is about finding their deep rightness, not battling with their wrongness. I’ve been a Martha Beck Life Coach Training instructor for three years, served as Training Coordinator, and currently run the Master Coach training program. I’m also CEO of Martha Beck Inc. In my spare time, I get outside whenever I can, spend time laughing with friends and family and am trying to life-coach my dog Scruffy into barking less. The problem is, she doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with her. Damn, she’s right again.
Coaching and teaching is truly my calling. I specialize in relationships, career transformation, and coach mentoring. I do deeply transformational work and I love watching my clients and students learn to understand and appreciate themselves as they create richer, more satisfying lives. Prior to coaching, I was a trial lawyer. I live in Miami and practice yoga and expressive dance when I’m not writing my blog (www.terrydemeo.com), visiting my kids in the Big Apple or hanging out with Bruno, my black lab.
I help women lead their lives from a place of self-love and confidence so they can play big in the world. My core message is It Doesn’t Have to be a Struggle! I believe that fun and play are requirements when it comes to finding your North Star. People say I’m warm, genuine, and funny (and I would have to agree). Click here to learn more about me.

I help coaches and women live life ‘turned on’ by their senses to feel awake and alive. I believe it’s all about loving life, being you, on purpose. Seriously, what’s more wonderful than tapping into and experiencing your own magic, miracles, pleasure and purpose. Can you feel it? I can, and I love helping others feel it too. I live in the Pacific Northwest, married my high school love, have three crazy fun kids and can’t live without my gal pals, my lifelines. Bottom line, I’m a lover of life.

My driving passion is to help clients learn how to declare peace on themselves. What I’ve learned in forty years of transformational work and a long teaching career is this: Curiosity, deep listening, and courageous questioning can clear confusion and open the door for life to flow in. A peaceful, kind life. I love the shifts that naturally occur when we ask questions and listen for our own freedom. I’m certified in The Work of Byron Katie, in counseling and in spiritual mentoring. My oasis is Oregon, where I live and lead retreats. My family, my friends, my dog Calvin, and my own mind teach me all I need to know about peacemaking. More at Oasislifedesign.com.

As a coach, I often refer to myself as a “transition tour guide”; my passion is supporting my clients as they navigate life’s “in-between” places where transformation originates and new growth takes root.
