My Story

Hi, I’m Kristin Cassidy, a certified life & wellness coach, yoga teacher, mother, and an unshakeable optimist committed to helping YOU unleash your powerful potential in order to THRIVE in your life!

I’ll never forget the day my mission in life emerged.

“If suffering could make a noise, the whole world would be humming.”

The moment I heard those words, compassion flooded my heart.

I could relate to the deep sadness of suffering, of loss, feeling alone, being scared and uncertain. I had my own stories of turmoil tucked away.

I was certain that it was my life mission to help others suffer less in this world. It feels hard-wired in me.

I wanted to make a difference no matter how small.

Life is hard enough to not be kind.

Early on in my life I took on the role of becoming a people pleaser in order to receive praise, love and belonging.

People pleasing on the outside looks okay, you’re kind and want others to be happy, you’re easy going and very likable, but your decisions are based on what would make others happy.

You lose sight of YOU and your own needs, desires and dreams.

Underneath the surface, people pleasing is a big issue with your self-worth.

I believe our greatest sin is NOT living in alignment with who we truly are.

Once we can believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.

E.E. Cummings

Especially women, we have been taught, raised and conditioned to live up to the expectations of others.

We need to remember that we are already worthy and that we matter. We all have sh*t we’re working with, but it does not have to define us.

What we need is to get in touch with our own divine, wise, potent, and authentic Self.

What I did not know at the time was that in the process of helping others, I would tend to my own wounds.  I learned how vital it is to heal myself so that I can more powerfully serve others in their process of healing.

After 20 years of marriage, I journeyed through my own divorce that would lead me to experience the “dark night of the soul.” I came face to face with the detrimental effects of gossip, caring about what others thought, shame and fear of change and uncertainty.
Eventually I would rise out of that ominous pit by the wondrous, resilient strength of my own light and live what’s possible on the other side of fear- a greater, more joyful expression of my authentic self set free.

My struggles have shaped and strengthened me. I am in touch with who I am now: I am more authentic, have more genuine, empowering relationships, and I unapologetically follow my dreams.

The change begins with you

It is not only my wish, but my mission to help other women rise into their own brilliance, eliminate obstacles, find their unfathomable strength, boldly trust in their inner wisdom, feel empowered, be healthy, thrive and to fall in love with their life.

Let’s do this together. 

I would love to hear your story.
