Take Control Of Your Mind Today And Change Your Reality

Are you ready to take back your life and RESTORE BALANCE? In what can feel like the busy blur of life I understand how it feels to wake up and find that your daily actions do not align with your ultimate goals and desires. I also understand how difficult it can be to see your way clear through the demands of life, to prioritize so many high level needs, and how an overwhelming and ever-growing to do list can quickly turn to paralysis and stagnation. While loss, uncertainty and grief may be a constant in your heart, this can be your time to recognize any limiting beliefs, heal from them, and allow your greatest life to be born. In all of these challenges, the cause of your limitations may not be easy to identify, as it’s not in your conscious mind but in your unconscious mind. Together, we can access your unconscious mind and plug into the power of the universe which is always in full support of you now and in every moment.

Living My Dream By Helping People Achieve Balance

In addition to my work as a Life Mastery Coach, I have been teaching yoga since 2002 and practicing massage therapy since 2004. Drawing on these various skills through my own life challenges and losses, I have connected to a constant source of peace and calm and feel led to help others do the same. I have also learned that years of limiting self-speak or similar sentiments expressed by others may have dampened or even closed off one of our most valuable resources: intuition. With my keen sense of insight and perception, I will help you learn or relearn to trust in your own intuition. Allow me to utilize my ability to view your highest self and guide you not only to the same vision, but also to an embodiment of that self and life. I believe that we are all on a path that is paved with guiding lights and I would be both honored and humbled to be your next guiding light.

You Have All The Answers – I Will Help You Access Them.

I will help you to open yourself to the greater good and purpose that any current challenge is offering to you. By learning how to stop overusing your adrenaline to bring your body and mind back into a state of balance, you will be able to find grace in even the hardest moments of difficulty and loss. By recognizing and owning your responsibility and power in any situation, you will find yourself less reactive to the inevitable stresses of life. Feeling more ease and flow will allow you to use your energy to manifest instead of struggle against the current of life. You have all the answers. I will help you access them to find the treasure in your trials.

"Carissa’s style is particularly inviting and inspiring, both friendly and challenging in the best way. Her yoga classes taught me about the broader role yoga can play in balancing my life, stretched and strengthened my body and also bathed me in a feeling of well-being that lasted long beyond the class. She is a wonderful “advanced” teacher but she’s also my first choice to inspire beginners."


"Meeting Carissa Spada was life changing for me. The exact moment I met her, I felt a connection between us. I knew I had found the person who would help me to find my core emotional and physical strength again. And I was so right. Carissa’s skills as a teacher and coach, her ability to join me where I was and her compassion made all the difference and brought me to a place of peace and power once again."
