Overwhelm. Frustration. Exhaustion…
Are you exhausted by having to “Do It All” but losing yourself in the process?
Convinced you have to sacrifice your energy, sanity, and happiness to keep everyone else afloat… while inside, you’re drowning?
Feel like you’re just getting by and can’t see any relief in sight?
There is another way
You need some BREATHING ROOM.
Room to think… Room to reset yourself and claim your life back… Room to tap into clarity…
Room to be supported and reclaim the vibrant, grounded, YOU that is somewhere in there!
Get the support, tools, and guidance to recreate YOU and emerge with focus, confidence, and plan to move forward, no matter what life brings.
I know you.
Maybe your life has been turned upside-down with a career transition, a change in relationship status, or a health diagnosis.
Or maybe there’s not just “one thing,” but hundreds of tiny things from the kids to the clients to the bills to the house to the parents to the in-laws…
And suddenly everything’s been thrown up in the air.
You’d like to be “zen” about it, but the Oprah/Chopra meditation and deep breathing you’ve been practicing like a madwoman just isn’t cutting it.
You’re exhausted. And as much as you love your people and as tough as you’ve always been and as dedicated as you are to “making it work…”
You honestly cannot imagine going on this way for another month, let alone another decade.
Is there a way to fall into place rather than falling apart (because you simply DO NOT have time for a breakdown!)?
Put simply, YES.
That’s why I created The Breathing Room… a place where smart, driven, capable women can give themselves the gift of simply being, with no agenda other than to reclaim yourself. Yes, you’ll get tools and strategies for coping with life’s uncertainty and difficulties, but you know what? I firmly believe you already know what to do.
You just need the space and time to find yourself again.
Who Am I?
Hi, I’m Grace, a corporate employee turned biz owner and reformed people-pleaser and over-giver. I’m a hyperactive Latina (granddaughter of Italians) turned Zen master... go figure! I’m passionate about helping kick ass women claim their centered, confident selves and make decisions in support of what they truly want (yes, it's possible). Over the past few years, I’ve spoken to thousands of women in your same shoes. I know the walk you’re walking. I’ve moved countries 6 times, which means I've started over - 6 times. I’ve been through divorce, massive career transitions, continental moves, tough goodbyes. You name it. Because all I knew was constant transition and change in my life, I was desperate for steady calm waters inside myself. I had to claim my Zen and master it… in the most practical of ways. I’ve created the conditions that have been crucial to my ability to navigate life's many many curveballs without losing my heart, my drive and my mind in the process. The one thing that's helped me to bounce back and flow through it has been a strong foundation of resilience, clarity and support. So that's why I created Breathing Room.
What if I told you...
What if I told you that in a matter of weeks, you could be out of “survival mode?”
What if I told you it is possible to stop the anxious spinning, to have the head space and bandwidth to think beyond the next 15 minutes ongoing?
Happier, connected, focused, and clear, you have the internal and external support to KNOW what you want.
You start saying “No” to what doesn’t fit. You’re taking better care of yourself with time to do what fills your emotional tank: working out, time with girlfriends, connecting with your partner…
I know it sounds impossible right now, but give yourself the gift of belief...
And then get yourself over to the Breathing Room, a community of women who are committed to creating the space to learn to trust themselves again.
"I have become more like me..."
“One of the greatest things that I’ve received is structure and step by step how to lead a better, calmer, more fulfilling life. In a very step by step way. Taking time for myself, setting boundaries. Saying no. Taking moments of recovery. Doing a Sunday Scan – that is Gold!
And since doing these micro steps, alignment shows up in unexpected ways, and things seems to just fall into place.
I have become more me. Less a product of the material world, and more me.” - Breathing Room Participant
Here’s what you’ll experience in The Breathing Room:
“I am calmer, more confident, and ready to try new things without fear.…”
“I am feeling productive, but in a different way than before. I am not preoccupied with what the next 5 years are going to look like, and more focused on my priorities to be able to make incremental choices to get where I want to be between now and then. It’s been empowering to know what feels balanced and be able to eliminate things that don’t result in that feeling. I can more quickly identify things that used to put me over the edge, and address those in the moment. I am clearer in my direction and continuing to identify what works for me in my schedule and life. I am also more confident in my existing abilities.” - Breathing Room Participant
What is the Breathing Room?
The Breathing Room is a one-of-a-kind, 4-month incubator for women who know they take on too much but don’t see any other option (after all people depend on you!). It’s a unique blend of doing and being, structure and freedom, guidance and connection, that allows you to develop habits and self-trust to create a strong, calm, expansive foundation for your life.
What the Breathing Room is NOT
The Breathing Room is NOT therapy. We assume you’re a strong, healthy person who has lost her way amidst the demands and frenzy of everyday life.
The Breathing Room is NOT “another course.” You won’t get a reading list, hours of video to watch, or more to do. Instead, you’ll receive bite-sized suggestions, wisdom, and exercises that you can use in the moment to tap into your own inner compass.
The Breathing Room is NOT a meditation retreat, “woo-woo” encounter, or idealistic haven to escape from everyday life. Rather, you’ll learn how to pause in the midst of Real Life to create peace around you, wherever you are and whatever comes your way.
“I no longer feel like the days are a gray, hectic blur…”
“Before the Breathing Room, I felt so stuck. I knew I needed to take some time for myself, but didn’t know where to start. I couldn’t admit to myself all this pain would lead to a better, more fulfilling life.
I now have tools to use both when I’m feeling ok and when I’m not. It’s become normal to take care of myself, and feel more fulfilled at the end of each day.
I feel less frantic or upset than I have in the past. I now watch people who were just like me and am in awe of how far I have come.” - Breathing Room Participant
Here’s how it works:
After you register, you’ll receive a welcome email with all your program information.
We start Friday, February 23rd.
This support, guidance, tools, perspective and bite sized practices are just what you need in your crazy busy life to create quite a bit of space for YOU.
How do I fit this in? I have no time as it is.
This program is NOT just another “To-Do” on a never-ending list.
There is NO homework and NO “modules” or formulas to follow.
Instead, you’ll get easy-to-use, fast-to-learn practices and habits to incorporate in your life (even while you drive or wait in line at the grocery store!).
How does this compare to other coaching programs and courses?
First off, the focus of The Breathing Room is NOT to “fix” you. You, dear one, are already perfect -- you just need to remember that!
As a result, the approach is not to turn you into something else or repair something that’s broken. We’ll be working on helping you remember who you are and what you want -- before the world intervened.
The Breathing Room relies on three components: Support, Practices, and Guidance. You’ll learn how to tap into these elements at any time, even in the midst of chaos, to create your own personal oasis.
What if I can’t attend live?
If you can’t attend a coaching call live, everything’s recorded for you. No stress! Access at your convenience, 24/7.
Do I have to meditate or chant?
Only if you want to! The Breathing Room is PERFECT for “type-A” women who want REAL results, not mushy feel-good “warm fuzzies” that fade as soon with the next toddler tantrum or unexpected bill. We’ll focus on practical, sustainable tools, support, and connection.
I don’t want one more thing to fail at…
That’s why this is NOT a class with designated assignments and homework. I’m dedicated to meeting you right where you are, and walking alongside you on the path to clarity, self-knowledge, and ease.
