A must for Charlotte parents and good news…She is about to offer virtual workshops—stay tuned!
FRENCH IS BEAUTIFUL
My friend Carrie Anne James has an amazing online French program, French is Beautiful! Her teaching style is unorthodox and unique — she teaches her clients how to speak like a real person and express their personalities in MODERN (still polite, still educated) French…and she also teaches slang because we all need to be fully-expressed to FEEL FLUENT!

CATHERINE COLLAUTT, PH.D.
Catherine Collautt, Ph.D. is an author, manifestation consultant, energy healer and all around incredible human being. I have worked with Cathy for years, and her process is off the hook. Recently, I read all of her vignettes and they are incredible.

REFLECTIONS CENTER FOR CONSCIOUS LIVING
Reflections Center for Conscious Living isn’t a yoga studio for the “fabulous,” and no one feels intimidated there. In fact, they no longer use the term ‘yoga studio’ at all, it is too limiting for what they actually do. Reflections offers many different mind-body-centering practices including hypnosis, Reflections After Dark, float science (floatation tank), massage, reiki, cranial sacral therapy, and The Franklin Method. According my dear friend and founder Paula Tursi, “We invite any method that may unlock a higher awareness, and thus more consciousness.”
My friend and colleague Jess Grippo, a dancer, writer, and creative life coach, has found a way to weave together all the things she loves into a fulfilling, successful, and creative career: performing, teaching dance, blogging, guiding clients into their creative flow, and of course making dance videos. (Her most recent venture was a TEDx talk!) Jess’s coaching practice is about helping people revive their passions and get out of their own way when it comes to making creative dreams happen.
