About STAR Transformations


About STAR Transformations
STAR Transformations is about cultivating and sustaining Self Trust and Authentic Relationships starting with the most important relationship in your life, the one you have with yourself. Partnerships involve intention, presence, authenticity, self-surrender and love. Developing self-awareness is the foundation for all other relationships and assists you with navigating the journey of life with grace and ease. Despite even the best of intentions, life can often feel like a roller coaster ride with many ups and downs. However, you can have a whole new experience when you honor yourself by shifting your focus back to you, healing your wounds, connecting to your heart and moving forward grounded in who you are. STAR Transformations is a resource for the tools, knowledge, practices and guidance for healing body, mind and spirit. Love Coaching, Yoga and Ayurveda are holistic and integrative practices to further you along your journey. Here you can process, learn, play, move and love your way to manifesting and transforming yourself and your life to align with your heart's desires. If you ever feel disconnected from yourself or struggle with relationships but you have a willingness to open your mind and heart to what's possible and a readiness to let go of what's not working in order to create space for your most beautiful dreams to come true, then this is the place for you.

About Kari


About Kari
I grew up in the western suburbs of Minnesota; the eldest of five children in a dysfunctional family due to alcoholism. As a result, my siblings and I were not modeled, and even prevented from, loving and honoring ourselves. This led to a lonely and depressed childhood, anorexia at the age of 14,  becoming a mom at the age of 21, followed by a failed marriage and several lengthy toxic relationships with men with addictive personalities. I was intelligent, motivated and successful in school and work but lacked emotional intelligence and clarity around my life purpose or who I was. Divorce sent me back to college in 2001 and on a career path in medical devices but my heart longed to help people more directly and focus on preventative medicine and health.

My true journey back to self began in 2003 when I learned how to meditate. A regular meditation practice facilitated the process of releasing anger raging inside of me, making way for my true emotions to arise and on the path home to my soul. Thereafter I went through training programs for Therapeutic Coaching and Spiritual Therapeutic Coaching with the intention of adding tools to my tool belt for when I eventually went to chiropractic school after my daughter graduated from high school. However, the knowledge gained and experiential process was most importantly part of my own healing journey. The ending of my last romantic relationship sent me into a dark night of the soul. Yet, with the internal and external resources I'd developed, I was able to navigate the purging of what felt like 40 years of emotions and associations. The process lasted for several months and felt like a rebirth. I had to relearn what everything was and what it meant to me, what I liked or didn't like and who I was in the world. Thereafter I fell into yoga teacher training and restorative yoga which set me on the necessary road to follow my dream of connecting body, mind and spirit. In a matter of a few months I went through several major life changes; a new car, changed jobs, sold my first house and bought a new home with my partner. I have a fiance who loves and respects me the way I now love and honor myself. Over the last several years I've been teaching and studying yoga of all types with a focus on rest and relaxation, centering and grounding in self, and striving for balancing and healing mind, body and spirit. My intention and gift is to assist others in their journey back to self through the heart in the context of mind, body and spirit.
