Craig Richman

Many of my women client's experience life changing events such as divorce, losing a spouse or other transition that leaves them less confident and searching for a new path and balance in life. Their financial concerns consume their thoughts preventing clarity and confidence. Confronting an unknown future produces much anxiety and distress.

I have felt lost and hopeless that my life lost purpose and balance in the past. My yoga journey was perhaps the most enlightening period of my life. This experience and ongoing practice changed the way I approach my life and my business.  This was the beginning of my path to find my dharma: my unique purpose in life:  to provide guidance and financial wisdom to women and help them live their best life.  This integration of financial guidance and yoga provides a powerful synergy to bring our mission to fruition.
