Welcome to Take 5

Longing for inner-Peace?

Seeking relief ​from anxiety?

Me too! I created Take 5 for those with hectic ​lives and high-stress jobs. Life is busy, but it ​doesn’t have to be chaotic. If you have little time ​and high anxiety, you’re in the right place. After ​experiencing burnout eleven years ago, I learned ​the importance of taking breaks from the ​relentless pressures of career and caregiving. ​Now, I prioritize inner peace above all. Is my ​anxiety totally gone? No, but I’ve taken my ​power back from it and you can too. Through ​Take 5, I share the practices that helped me ​reclaim my health from the effects of anxiet​y and ch​r​onic stress.

Meditate with Me via zoom

Free 15 Min Guided Meditations Weekly at 4:30 PST

Happy Hour marks the time of day when a lot of us ​yearn for something to take the edge off our anxiety and ​stress. Meditation can be just as effective of a relaxant ​after a hectic day as your preferred cocktail.

If you are like me and love wine this can help you “keep ​it mindful” and heighten your senses to up-level the ​tasting experience. Weekly themes may include ​breathwork, mantra, and mindfulness.
