OUR INSPIRATION

 

We want to enjoy the journey to performing at our peak in life.

Our unique path includes adventure sport as one of the pillars to self mastery. Playing with these powerful forces of nature puts us in flow-state, an active mindfulness practice. So we work with dynamic leaders seeking growth, adventure, and fun on the path to create great change in their lives and in the world.

RENÉE CAROLINE

Renee Caroline is a coach and movement analysis specialist focusing in relationship and life transformation. Her unique approach is grounded in real-life solutions founded in authentic relating, depth and somatic psychology and transforming limiting beliefs.

She is the co-founder of Hearts Ignited, which offers retreats and couples coaching for creating limitless love.

When she is not helping others create a life they love, and teaching them to love as big as they can, you will find her on the dance floor getting her flowstate on -- beat by delicious beat.

SYLVIA FERRERO
Partnerships & Possibility Muse

I am an artist, heart-guided activist, and seeker of adventure. As a 2-time world champion fitness athlete, stunt double, and weight loss and wellness professional for over a decade and a half, I've developed a keen listening for the body's innate wisdom and healing capabilities. I specialize in mentoring athletes, TV personalities, top-level executives, entrepreneurs and high-potentials who want to change the world on how to cultivate healthier, more empowering relationships with their bodies so they can be better role models and leaders.

My heart is most moved by curiosity, meaningful stories and playing barefoot in nature. This has inspired my current passion project which lies nestled in an enchanting Costa Rican mountain town -- empowering its women by teaching them how to upcycle used plastic bags and fishing line harvested from their coastlines and transforming them into ocean-conscious bracelets.

ONYAY PHEORI

Whether it is through facilitating individuals and groups, writing music for film & tv or performing around the world; creating extraordinary connection, deep intimacy, higher consciousness and transformation is at the heart of it all for Onyay. She loves taking people on deep, inner journeys to explore, discover, liberate and embody their truest selves. Utilizing breath work, meditation and a wide range of modalities, she guides people in releasing subconscious blocks, transforming old stories and healing traumas to harmonize with higher states of consciousness and align with what truly brings them the most fulfillment, joy, love and purpose on all levels.

TESTIMONIALS

Michelle B.

"I have experienced tremendous shifts in thought patterns I have run for years... for life! The process of identifying different parts of our psyches that drive us provides tools to choose what 'voices' we listen to within. The coaches at Live Ignited are fantastic at seeing the best in all and at guiding their clients into a perspective of growth, learning, improvement, and moving ever forward. I cannot recommend them enough."
