size-inclusive wellness free of diet culture and body shame.
Hi, I’m Sarah.
Did you know that 67% of women in the United States wear a size 16 above and ? And yet, we’re nearly invisible within the wellness industry. I think this is wrong. I'm a Self-Love Mentor and Wellness Advocate whose biggest whose passion in life is cultivating positive change in women of all sizes. My goal is to “bang down the door” of this broken industry for women of size - folks who have been told that the only way to experience a greater life is by going on a diet. Bullsh*t.
Wellness looks different for everybody. It starts from the inside out. I live by a personal motto: I stand, you stand, and together, we rise the f*ck up!
Every day we wake up is a beautiful opportunity to create change from a place of deep self-love. No matter who we are, we can all RISE UP in life!
I’m a Level 1 Kundalini yoga teacher and love strength training. I meditate. I sing in the car with the windows rolled down. I wear cowboy boots and tell dirty jokes.
I believe my life purpose is to create a community (no, forget that — a MOVEMENT) of women ready to burst through their own sh*t and life a greater life.
I don’t believe in dieting. I DO believe in living your best life with a body that supports you in doing that. If you DO want to lose weight, unpack your motives, ditch the “before and after” thinking, and make sure you are guided by self-love and not “diet culture rules.”
I’m a writer and an inspirational speaker. I’m a teacher and a storyteller. I also run the ONLY truly size-inclusive personal growth workshop in the market today. [It’s awesome. Trust me.] Most of all, I’m someone who wants to have a hell of a time enjoying life while in pursuit of becoming a thick, strong, feisty ninja spreading love-bombs wherever she goes.
Live is meant to be lived. And the greatest gift we get is the chance to wake up every day to create a life that we love. Find your truth. Honor who you are. And shine.

Self-Love. Wellness. Fitness. Kundalini Yoga. Meditation. all From the perspective of a woman living the journey to creating her greater life.
In April of 2016, at the age of 37, I weighed around 360 lbs. My body hurt; I searched for chairs to sit when I walked into every room, and my left knee would buckle out from under me. (Made shopping at Target a real blast…) But more than that? I felt like my life was passing me by. Like everyone was alive and I was just watching. And I was DONE with it. My first goal was make changes so that I would be happier and healthier when I turned 40, than I was when I had turned 30.
I quickly realized that the work I needed to do went FAR beyond any number on a scale. This was about learning how live a healthier life from the INSIDE out. My focus would have to be on learning how to find wholeness in my mind, body, and soul
Since then, I’ve changed the entire trajectory of my life, and placed my commitment to my Greater Self at the top of my list!
To do this, I use a bunch of tools like,
Fitness and Strength Training,
Kundalini Yoga and Meditation,
Nutrition and Food,
And a massive amount of Soul-Archeology, deep work, and the willingness to “embrace the suck.”
Now, nearing the third year of this my process, and having turned 40 along the way, there are a few things I can say for sure:
3 Things I believe in.
The desire to self-improve belongs to EVERY body. (We are never too old, too heavy, or too “broken” to create a life that brings us joy from the inside out.)
The wellness and personal growth industry does a bad job at being inclusive. Let’s fix that. Together. Seriously. I mean it.
The only way to create LONG LASTING change in your life is to be driven by self-love. Nothing else will work. You may find a short-term “fix” but digging deep and walking through your own hard sh*t will be the only way to truly change your life.
I’m not a “fitness” influencer. I’m not a “yoga” influencer. I’m not a “body positive” influencer. I’m a “Live Your Greatest Damn Life” teacher, and I’m sharing directly from the trenches alongside with you.
Ready to begin your self-love journey and looking for guidance? Want to hang in-person and jumpstart life-change in a MAJOR way? Looking to work with me and serve women with badass business opportunities? Let’s do it!

We call it the Woof Pack.
Squad. Peeps. You can call it whatever you want. Around here? We call it the Woof Pack. Yup. You read that right. Woof. Like barking. Like a whole pack of bada*s barking underdogs ready to RISE THE FCK up and live a greater life.
If Romy and Michelle were your peeps.. If you slow-clapped for Rudy, or you cry when Rocky runs steps.. If you recite the words to A League of Their Own or if Silver Linings Playbook is a romance that just “gets you”… If you identify with the Bee Girl in that Blind Melon video, running through city in her dorky bee costume looking for people to dance with her… Welcome to your community.
We get there together. We pull each other up when one of us falls. We offer support when it hurts and share the joy when things are great. #WoofPack
