Life Starts Now
Online Lifestyle and Wellness Journey
Small Habits. Big Changes.
Welcome to my online group lifestyle and wellness journey, Life Starts Now, where you’ll master the habits to help you live your best life, starting now.
Life Starts Now is an online group course based on the science of habit formation and the practice of Ayurveda, the healing side of Yoga.
Broken out into four sessions aligning with the seasons, you’ll develop ten habits to help you find and keep your optimal weight, sleep deeper, stress less, and live a more balanced, vibrant life.
While the course is designed to be a year long, you can get your feet wet with just one session and go from there, see how it feels.
You’ll get weekly group coaching sessions, one-on-one coaching, accountability partners and a whole year to evolve.
The next session starts September 2021. Enrollment is open now.

Can You Relate?
Do Any of These Sound Familiar?
- You are too busy to prioritize your own well-being right now. When this happens, or when that is finally finished, you will focus on feeling better.
- You prioritize everyone else before you take care of you.
- You are stuck with old, unhealthy habits and patterns that you haven’t been able to change on your own.
- You rely on motivation to help you achieve your goals.
- You keep trying “the new thing” to help you improve your health and happiness.
- You’re struggling with always being “too busy,” extra weight, stress, inconsistent sleep, lack of mental focus, not enough energy.
It’s time to take care of you!

How & Why This Course Works
Take Your Time to Grow
With the option to start slow
Life Starts Now is a habit-development and personal growth course, broken down by sessions to match the seasons. No quick fixes. We strive for small incremental improvements.
You can join the course at the beginning of any one of the seasons. Your personalized year will be broken down like this:
Session One – Learning what the habits are and trying them out.
Session Two – Feeling better, implementing some of the habits.
Session Three – Gaining traction, habits becoming more “normal.”
Session Four – Automating your new habits, you don’t have to think about them.
*While the course is designed to be a 4-session year, in this time of uncertainty, you may start with just ONE session. Ask me for details.
The Group Dynamic
Did you know you are 80% more likely to change in a group setting than when they are trying to make changes on your own?
Our group, an amazing circle of women, is what Life Starts Now is all about.
- The course is designed for existing members to mentor new members, the group supports the group.
- We all gain from the success of others.
- We work on ourselves and not try to change the habits of others.
- We rely on each other for support and encouragement.
Learn the habits in a supportive environment with peers learning right along side you. And, gain the wisdom of the existing group members who have completed at least one session. Learn from those who have figured it out already.
Join me and other like-minded women who are ready for a total transformation!
Habits Backed by Western Science
Life Starts Now is rooted in both the ancient practice of Ayurveda and the modern science of habit formation and change.
What is astonishing to me is that in the last 10 to 15 years, the habits in the course have been backed by Western Science. In fact, Harvard University, UC Davis and the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize in Medicine have all concluded these habits improve our complete health, longevity and happiness.
Life Starts Now is not only about these habits but the successful implementation of them in our lives. Using today’s behavioral science basics, you’ll learn how to turn small habits into big changes.
You’ll establish optimal daily routines to create vibrant health and wellness.

What Members are Saying…
Join Us to Get These Results
As I remember my life before Jill’s class, I can confidently say, everything has changed more than I could have imagined. My eating, my relationship with food, my sleep, my self esteem. Yes, I have lost weight, but I feel like I am a different person. I sleep through the night, I am less reactive and I feel really good in my body.
I started with Jill’s class in January of 2019. I considered myself “on track” with a healthy and balanced lifestyle, so I thought the class would be a good way to meet others in class and stay on track during busier times. Yes it has offered that AND SO MUCH MORE! I feel grounded and confident in a way I didn’t realize was possible. I’m more open to connection with the world around me, and I’m facing the next phase of my life with anticipation and ease. I credit Jill’s coaching, the incredible support of our group, and the fundamental common sense of the habits with helping me create and sustain a next-level experience of the everyday events of life.
The support and accountability I get from this class has changed everything! Everything has shifted. I no longer weigh myself and feel comfortable in my body. I have also never been a good sleeper but now, I can actually fall asleep naturally and have sound sleep through the night. I never thought that would be possible for me.

How Life Starts Now Came To Be
Ayurveda became part of my life in my 20s, but I found it overwhelming, complex, and a little out there for me. For many years afterward, I was traveling and training all over as a functional personal trainer; always busy and pretty stressed out most of the time.
I looked fit, but I wasn’t sleeping through the night, had horrible digestion and, more often than not, needed a glass of wine at the end of the day to wind down.
The stress and constant rushing around became my norm. I thought this was how it had to be if I was going to be successful.
I actually found Ayurveda for my clients, who needed more help than I was giving them. I took a course where I learned and practiced the daily habits found in Life Starts Now. I wasn’t doing that class for me. I didn’t think I needed it. I thought I had it all figured out. I was wrong.
That course was eye-opening for me.
I was always dieting, My whole life, I was dieting. My weight dropped to an optimal weight for me; my digestion, which was poor my whole life, started working; I slept through the night; I went off all medication for anxiety, sleep and GI issues.
I have been practicing these habits for a few years now. I have lost body fat. I am leaner and stronger than ever at age 54. I am no longer dieting. I am sleeping well. I feel grounded and optimistic about life.
This has all happened slowly…and that is what this course is about. Slow steady changes.

What are YOUR Questions and Concerns?
Below are a few common concerns potential members have regarding making the commitment to the course. If you have additional concerns, let’s chat and I will answer any questions you may have.
“I’ve tried everything. Why will Life Starts Now work, when everything else I’ve tried hasn’t?”
There is two-way interview process for this group. You will only be asked to join if you are good fit for the course and if the course and I are a good fit for you. The group support, the weekly calls, the accountability, the one-on-one coaching and the behavior science all lead to great success for each carefully selected member.
“I don’t have enough time.”
The content of this course is manageable for all the participants, many working tons of hours in and outside the home and some caring for a house full of kiddos or aging parents. The course is designed for busy people who want to feel and age better.
“I don’t have enough money.”
Life Starts Now will actually save you money. When their health improves, members stop spending money on those things they previously thought they needed to feel better. That means fewer impulse buys, doctor visits, and magic pills and formulas.
“I am afraid I will fail.”
You’re not alone. Fear of failure is a huge issue with many of my new attendees. But, we’ll take the time to unpack your fears in a separate, dedicated phone call. Together, we’ll bring to light ways we tend to self-sabotage including repeating the same unhealthy patterns over and over – leaving us to believe success is out of reach. From what we’ve unpacked, we will individualize your course goals so that you will be successful.
