Chopra Center Certified Instructor

Do you want change in your life but no matter what you do one thing keeps getting in the way and that thing is … YOU? Libby was stuck, embarrassed, and exhausted from getting in her own way for decades and decided to do something about it.  She sought out others who were exploring ways to shift mindset and get unstuck using consciousness-based practices like yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda.  The more she learned the more she realized how these ancient tools supported personal development and professional leadership.  She was inspired to learn more and devoted the last 20 years to studying with the most profound thought leaders today like the Chopra Center’s co-founders Deepak Chopra and David Simon, Eckhart Tolle, davidji, Tony Robbins, Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Dr. David Frawley, Martha Beck, Jean Houston, Byron Katie, Caroline Myss, and Kia Miller. 

The heart of Libby’s teaching revolves around mindset and the awareness that how we approach big change is also how we approach everyday life. Big change like career transition, death, health challenges, relationship struggles, and financial difficulty were catalysts to big change in her mindset. She started to notice that how she approached change was on a subtler level also how she approached life.  Big questions started to emerge like, “Am I embracing life?” or “Am I resisting the evolutionary flow of life?”. Libby noticed her reaction to big change and everyday life determined what happened next and the shift in mindset from, “What’s the worst that could happen?” to “What’s the best that could happen?” was born and changed her life forever.

Ignited and inspired by her personal experience with healing and transformation, Libby was led to the Chopra Center 10 years ago where she was certified in Primordial Sound Meditation, Perfect Health-Ayurveda Lifestyle, and the Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga. Since then she’s traveled throughout the world leading workshops and trainings and teaching us how to move from where we are to where we want to be. Her background as a major market radio personality, music and program director to certified educator and Chopra Center executive gave her insight and compassion for the challenge we are facing in today’s world for balance and the need to redefine what success really looks like.

Libby has translated her 20 years of experience in the corporate world and personal development into the wisdom that is the foundation for Liberated Coaching and Workshops.  She speaks to a wide variety of groups because stress and discomfort do not discriminate.  Through her speaking engagements, Libby has inspired and moved CEOs, entrepreneurs, government employees, hospital executives, parents, ad agencies, athletes, baristas, high school and college students and even her Grandma Dorothy towards evolutionary change.

Libby recently trained with Kia Miller, founder of Radiant Body Yoga, and completed her advanced yoga and meditation training.  Libby’s mission in life is to ignite, inspire, and elevate as many people as possible though the practices of yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda. Ignited and inspired to bring a holistic approach to yoga with the influence of the ancient Kundalini tradition; Libby’s approach is designed to awaken each student to their higher nature.  This approach to yoga and meditation helps a person committed to self-inquiry live an extraordinary life. Prepare to build strength, vitality, and create mental clarity as we shift our mindset from, “What’s the worst-case scenario?” to “What’s the best that could happen?”.
