Who is Karissa Carpenter
Hey girl! Im Karissa!
This is the section where I am supposed to tell you about all my certifications, my success, my formal education and all the things that I have done to prove my worth and my value so that you will see I am worth your time and your money…
But guess what?!
I have spent the last 39 years trying to prove to myself that WHEN I get the next certification, the next degree, the next title that then and only THEN will I be worth it. That is when I will feel confident and BRAVE enough to put out an experience that costs money.
The funny part is - this whole experience you are about to embark upon is all about stripping that shit away.. Stripping away your self limiting beliefs about worth, about perfectionism, about not ever feeling valued so that you can FINALLY FEEL it. FINALLY FEEL WORTHY. I am not perfect and have struggled with that stuff my whole life, striving for perfection from people, titles and all the things just so I felt smart enough, pretty enough and hoping I would fit in. At the same time knowing that fitting in is BORING and I am far from boring. I always went the opposite path, I never followed the rules. I was a wild child and the things I loved about myself were also the things that society said wasn’t good enough which is why I struggled my whole life with who I was or who I was not.
My childhood wasn't easy, but my mom taught me how to be a strong, successful and independent woman. Our struggles only showed us our true strength and without those struggles I would probably given up by now. BUT I DIDN’T. My guess is you didn’t either but damn it, have we been close! Growing up my father struggled with alcohol addiction and struggled with letting others love him because deep down he never loved himself. He pushed everyone that loved him away including me. My father was wild, adventurous and all the things I love about myself as an adult, but I didn't realize any of that until I lost him when I was in my 30s. Growing up I witnessed abuse, and alcoholism but more importantly, I witnessed forgiveness and perseverance.
As a teenager, I was nothing short of a train wreck and I was living on the edge and partying, sneaking out, skipping school and violence that landed me in and out of therapy sessions, anger management classes and court appearances. By my early twenties I was suffering from anxiety, depression, perfectionism, self-harm, sexual trauma, addiction, and the list goes on. I had struggled on and off with depression my whole life but it was all coming to a head when I found myself back home, living with my brother after ending a 7-year relationship filled with abuse and addiction. After getting home and almost getting things back on track, I ended up pregnant and single. I was scared, alone, unsure what to do but I didn't give up on life or the people in it. I decided it was time to CHANGE. I needed to find something that brought me peace that wasn't just drinking since well I couldn't since I was pregnant and that thing was YOGA.
It seemed like the only time I felt peace was when I was hitting play on a yoga DVD which I used religiously for 2 years straight. The same DVD. I made another decision to go back to school and continued to feed my need to feel worthy, so I finished my bachelors degree in psychology and graduated with honors. Things started to fall into place as my daughters father (now my husband) and I got back together, bought a house, got married and had another child. Even as I was moving toward goals, I still felt lost, alone, depressed, unsure of my purpose.
Since that DVD brought me peace, I decided to dive deeper into yoga to see if I could find the lost woman that I had become. I traveled to Belize and Mexico over the course of 2 years to deepen my practice and develop my skills as a yoga teacher. I became a 200 hour Certified Yoga Instructor, Owner of Namaste Soulful, co-owner of Strong & Soulful Retreats, and just about finished with my 500 hours of yoga teacher training. I have certifications in level 2 Reiki, Clarity Catalyst Life Coaching, CPR, First Aid, AED Train the Trainer. All that stuff really just propelled me closer to my purpose to so I could grow into the women I am today.
One of the most important parts of my journey was realizing that my past DOES define me, my struggles showed me my strength. Helped me realize my gifts include not giving up, never settling, and always being grateful for my journey the highs and the lows because this life is a gift. Our insecurities, our thought processes are all attached to our past and when we can see the past for what it is and not wish it were different – we can change the trajectory of our lives. I am here to support you to do just that. Together we will elevate, we will become BRAVE enough to live this beautiful life at a deeper level.

Karissa Carpenter asked me to share a testimonial. This will be hard for me. It requires me to be vulnerable, but here it goes.
Last year, I was really struggling internally with finding myself. For the most part, I was always a happy person, but I was finding it harder to find my joy. I had been at my “new” job for a year. I went from being in the OR where we were really like family. I worked with a small group of people every day in some of the most stressful situations. I loved my job, I loved my team, but I needed to finally put my actual family first with us buying the store. I can honestly say I was grieving for my OR family and my job. I still do! It was my passion. It was me. And I was feeling lost without it.
Then came the pandemic, where we were trying to be very cautious. We didn’t want to put our customers, employees or ourselves at risk. I went from talking to people all day long, to sitting in my office by myself all day (minus when Alexis was here from school being closed - that was fun). I really needed people interaction.
I had always been an active person and loved working out, but my joints were starting to fail me. I decided to go take a yoga class. It was the best thing I could have done for myself at that time. It brought me out of my home. It let me be with people at a safe distance. It also brought me peace and joy! The one night we were doing handstands, and I didn’t realize just how much I missed that!
Of course life always gets away from you and it has been a while since I have been, but I strongly encourage you to go if you need to find that peace with yourself.
Karissa is an amazing instructor and so transparent and vulnerable in all she does! She is also great at showing you how to be real with yourself, how to really reconnect mentally and physically! Whether it is yoga, journaling, meditation, etc.
I can honestly say that she brought me out of a depression I was headed towards.
Now my job exceeds all of my expectations. I get to go and volunteer at Alexis’s school and be a present mom and not a FaceTime mom which was what I kinda felt like sometimes.
Thanks Karissa for leading me out of the dark!
Q: I don't know if I can afford to make the investment!
It’s totally normal to feel that way, I’ve been there myself. But consider it this way:
It’s good that you feel this is a big investment because it means you will take this seriously. Reminding yourself not only of the work you’ll have to do to unlock your sexy inner goddess but also the work you had to do to earn the money to pay for this toolkit, will help you stay dedicated when it gets hard (and it will get hard).
You’re going to uncover the path to truly becoming comfortable and confident to live as your authentic self, so make sure you’re ready, and then show up determined, ready to make this work if it’s the last damn thing you do.
For another perspective, think back to how low self-awareness might actually be costing you money. How much better could your financial situation be if you actually understood what you were passionate about if you understood your direction?
How much better more dedicated and confident would you be at a job, or with a business you really cared about?
If you know what you value, what change you want to make in the world, you’ll work harder and more creatively, and you’ll get energy from doing so.
That’s the kind of work that gets promotions. That’s the kind of business that attracts success.
Q: Do you allow refunds?
Q: Will I be allowed to download the course?
Yes, all of the content (videos, meditations, workbooks) are available on the membership site and can be watched at your convenience.
