Hello, I’m Carol Donahoe, yoga instructor, fitness professional, and personal development coach. In short: I help high-achieving women strike the balance they desperately need between productivity and play.
Sure, I’ve got boatloads of certifications, but my work with women is largely informed by my own experience. What I’ve learned through my own struggles with perfectionism and overwhelm is this: women need space, sisterhood, and self-care to truly thrive. Now, while that sounds extremely simple, it’s actually super hard to accomplish. If you’re burned out and clamoring for a break, you know exactly what I’m talking about. You WANT to take time for YOU, but you don’t. You desire deeply fulfilling friendships, but where are these magical ladies that you’re seeking? It’s not like you can just shop for them. You want to do more yoga, and find time to meditate even, but day after day you simply don’t do it. Why not?
Most women will say it’s because of money, or time, or their career, but I know that isn’t the real reason – the real reason is that they’re simply NOT in the habit of putting themselves FIRST. It’s too weird, or “bad,” or “selfish.” Perhaps they don’t see how it moves them “forward.”Source: vidaasana.secure.retreat.guru
