Recently I had a dietician appointment at KGH. It was after a long-waitlist to get in regarding my IBS. It was really apparent that I've made a LOT of changes in terms of eating within the past 6 months. One of the first questions was whether I eat regular snacks and meals. I was able to say: yes! 6 months ago-- that was not the answer. I used to feel so nauseous in the morning every day that I was avoiding eating breakfast, and that threw me off the rest of the day. Before for travelling, I used to not eat at all (sometimes for more than 12 hours-- if flying, I would fast the night before and all day, and just have water, to avoid the possibility of stomach irritation). This is no longer the case! I won't continue with all of the ins and outs! But it was also apparent that within the past 6 months- I've gained more awareness of what foods work for me. The 10 day detox was a really helpful catalyst, and I think that it actually was really beneficial for resetting my biome! I feel my stomach is less-sensitive following the 10 day detox than it was before that!

As 2018 closes I'm also finishing an 11 week Align and Thrive series with Dana Skoglund and there couldn't be a better way to close off the year. With a growing family and growing business it's easy to let self-care fall to the side. By spending each week focusing on a new daily habit to weave into a full life makes sure that I'm caring for my health and sanity first so that I can support all of the busyness around me. If you're looking for that "New Year New You" that ACTUALLY sticks this is the community to get in! (Also Dana's yoga classes are 👌🧘♀️)
- Do you want healthier habits but you keep sabotaging yourself?
- Are your friends, co-workers, or family members perpetuating negative choices?
- Do you struggle with setting strong boundaries, saying "no" and making time to take care of yourself?
- Do you want more balance but don’t know how to tip the scales and create the time and space for what matters most?
- Do you want to experience more ease in your day-to-day life but feel overwhelmed with the never-ending to-do list?
Self-care isn’t selfish. By putting yourself first you increase your capacity to be of service and at the top of your game in every area of your life. When YOU feel better you're better to those around you. Your relationships improve, you’re more patient, more productive and you can make everyday count.
By aligning your daily routines with the cycles of nature and with your personal values and goals, you will live a more healthy, balanced and fulfilling life. The daily rituals you’ll adopt in Align and Thrive These are one of the simplest and most powerful tools you have to take our health into your own hands.
Because mediocrity just won't do.
Worried you don’t have time in your day to add in Self Care?
These tiny practices actually CREATE more time than they take. You’ll become MORE PRODUCTIVE, MORE INTENTIONAL and MORE ON PURPOSE.
Concerned it’s not the Right TIME?
Reality check - there’s no such thing as the “right time” to do anything. Life is only getting busier and time is passing, there will always be something. It’s simply a matter of deciding that your health is a priority and making the choice to invest in yourself. You’ll wish you started DECADES AGO.
Are you thinking: “I have too many responsibilities, this feels self-indulgent and I feel guilty focusing on myself” Let me repeat: SELF CARE ISN’T SELFISH. It’s actually the most UNSELFISH thing we can do. When our cup is filled up we’re better parents, friends, partners and colleagues.
What Participants Are Saying:
I joined Dana’s Align and Thrive group as I was looking to get to know my spiritual side deeper and take better care of “her”. The habits we implemented during the course proved to be the stepping stones I needed to find and begin to nourish my spirit. Dana is a genuine and caring coach who is enriching the lives of those around her. I am sincerely grateful for the connectivity I discovered within myself .... thank you!
— Yoly Phillips
My 10 weeks immersed in the Align and Thrive group lead by Dana Skoglund was truly awesome. Her passion and guidance through 10 daily habits awakened more body awareness putting me in tune with how I feel and why. Each week we learned reasons behind each habit, which put me in the drivers seat and further helped my transformation towards making everyday the best it can be.
If anyone is looking to take control of their own health and become more in tune with your physical and emotional being I would highly recommend working with Dana through Align and Thrive!

What Participants Are Saying:
“Being an insomniac was always the most reliable thing in my life. A few months ago I realized that I lacked more and more energy and resilience. So I thought, I have to do something and it might as well be this.
If someone would have told me that after just a few weeks I would get up at 5.30 in the morning after 7 hours of the deepest possible sleep and full of energy & excitement to start all my various fun projects, I would never have believed it. So what’s happened? Hard to explain, but it felt easy and natural. It was the empathetic guidance of a wonderful coach, a supportive group that shared amazing stories, and a clear goal on the horizon. Thank you, Dana Vanwoerden Skoglund! Keep doing your magic. For me it’ll be an ongoing learning curve, and an ever surprising route to travel.”
— Karin Eger-Blenk
“What this course gave me was the structure and gently facilitated accountability system to layer these habits into my life in a logical, naturally progressive way. I was able to realize what my keystone habits are and observe the effect on my life and vitality when i neglected these key habits. I also got a lot out of the group sharing - though i myself am pretty introverted (particularly in group settings), I was grateful for the generosity in sharing from the other members of the group and the ability to compare/contrast my experience with theirs.
Dana, as always, was fantastic. humble, grounded, hilarious, approachable, knowledgeable, dedicated and totally real. This is a program for anyone and everyone! ”
— Dewi Peters
“This 10 week course opened up the realization that it’s possible to put life changing habits in to place. I had really lost hope in some areas of my life. I thought I wasn’t able to stick with things long enough and that it was just “who I was”. I was stuck in these old stories of “I am not a morning person”, “I am unorganized” - although I desperately wanted to be an “organized morning person”. Learning about my composition (Dosha) suddenly made my whole life make sense, the highs and lows I experience and the general state of discomfort. Dana laid it all out in small bite-sized steps, each leading in to one another in a very non-threatening kind of way. For the first time in my life, I didn’t feel overwhelmed with all I wanted to be, do and change. The golden nugget for me was that change happens one step little step at a time. Re-vamping habits and replacing old habits is totally possible. Knowing this has opened up my entire life from the seat of “possible”.
Infinite gratitude. ”
— Grace Edison
“Dana’s Align & thrive course changed my life more than I realized it ever could! In just a short time over the course of 2 to 3 months, I’m waking up at 5:30 AM without an alarm?!! My husband is shocked & amazed! I have completely reconnected, without fail, to a personal daily yoga practice followed by meditation each morning.
This course helped me to manage my daily life schedule to accommodate & make room for what really matters to me. I have more energy and less feelings of overwhelm and intensity. With little to no effort, I gave up television, coffee & the urge to eat chocolate on a daily basis. Haha.
I’d recommend this course to anyone who would like to build a better relationship with themselves and shift with little effort into a healthier and easeful life....
Dana is an excellent coach.
I’m thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this community.... ”
— Elise Dunn
“There’s a lot of noise these days about self-care. But what does it actually mean? I used to hear that term and roll my eyes because it seemed so new age-y and surface. When I looked around at how it was being used I saw more busy-ness, more perfecting, more distractions and more indulging. But Dana Skoglund had a different interpretation of it- being honest and clear with ourselves about what we really need. To me self-care looks a lot like facing down the deeper darker parts of yourself and shaking out the cobwebs. To me it looks like soul searching and making room to pursue the things that call to you and giving yourself space to make mistakes and fail. I LOVE a good massage or a pedicure or whatever but they’re not the things that make my life any richer feeling. Connecting, letting go of sh/t that doesn’t work, making space for quiet, pursuing projects that I’m passionate about... these are the things. Dig deeper. The world needs deeper these days. And if you need help check out Dana’s coaching. It’s straight to the point and no fluffy stuff”
— Katie Nugent
“My habits have shifted especially my morning routine. I did not think it was possible for me to get up and feel rested and begin my day with a yoga practice. My routine sets me up for an easeful day. I feel present and unattached to what is going on around me and feel incredibly clear and present. I have more energy and am more aware of what my body needs.
I have received so much more than I had hoped. I feel that I have come to have a deeper love, understanding and acceptance of myself. I have noticed a lot of realizations relating to my personal relationships with friends/work/family. I am clearer on what my boundaries are.”
— Denise Dillon
"In the past year of taking Align and Thrive and Empowered Living I have transformed my life-long habits. For the first time in over 20 years I am down 13 pounds and feel so much more energized. I will never go back to my old way of being. It's such a blessing that Dana came across my path."
- Paule Mondor
"The Empowered Living group with Dana has been a sanctuary of divine learning opportunity. Dana helped me dive into the turbulent waters of my life and taught me tools to not only survive but thrive through the rapids. The Empowered Living group was a strong community who supported me through my habit changes. Just like the name of the group says; after this course, I feel empowered in my life."
Align and Thrive is a program that will awaken and empower you to live your greatest life. Your heart and soul will sing as you step into alignment with who you are meant to be and thrive as you discover and live the 10 habits..The best investment you can give to you. I promise.
I can honestly say that my mental health, compared to the beginning of the course, is 100% better. I am happier daily. And I am gaining my self confidence back. Having a daily routine seems simple, but it's not. But now I have the tools. Thank you.

I am really enjoying this program and look forward to each week and habit! The information is awesome and far beyond what I expected for this course. This course has come to me at the perfect time for a number of things in my life and helping me work through the loss of my Dad is one of them.
I never used to be one to sit in my feelings and just let myself feel them, I always had to have a reason of why I felt them. Now I just try and let myself feel them and remind myself I am enough, right where I am.
- April Goldade

Lighter earlier dinner, earlier to bed, earlier to rise and tongue brushing has helped me feel healthier and more balanced.
My brain has never been so sharp even though I am seriously so sleep deprived from parenthood. Between that and losing 7 pounds I am so feeling fantastic. I’m going to keep on keeping on with this!!!
As of today, I have lost 19 lbs since Oct. 1. I am starting to feel like my old self again and looking forward to the future with more hope and anticipation. I am eating differently and feeling better for it.
Waking up early and exercising instead of sleeping in late and hitting snooze - has made my mornings much smoother, less stressful, more energized!
I’m sleeping better. Earlier to bed and earlier to get up is definitely helping!
And I've noticed I need less sleep! I used to sleep 10 or 11 hours a night, lately I've been waking up after 8 or 9 hours feeling refreshed and ready.
I think the biggest result has been my overall awareness in general with decisions I make for myself. Even if I don’t always choose the best thing for myself, I’m consistently aware of my actions now. This has caused a huge shift in my behaviour and choices.
Biggest measurable RESULT has been my ability to fall asleep without any kind of sleep aid.🙏🏼
Feeling more grounded and deeply energetic. I love that when I start to feel overwhelmed I know why and can look to where I am out of balance and what I need to do to re-balance. Such a gift!
Dana Skoglund is helping the world shine their light a little brighter and I’m proud to be a part of it.

Before I implemented the habits of Ayurveda, I felt like my life was not my own. I was stuck in a victim mentality and didn’t feel like I was in control of my life.
But I knew I was destined for more. After adopting the daily routines of Ayurveda, my life transformed. By making time to take care of myself, I became whole again. For the first time in my adult life, I had a clear sense of my purpose AND I had the energy, drive, motivation and enthusiasm to go forward and follow it.
From that point forward, I began sharing this life-changing ancient science with as many people who would listen.
In the last 4 years I’ve helped over 130 students transform their lives through healthier habits. It took me years to make the shift, but I've streamlined the journey to make it faster, easier and way more fun!
What Participants Are Saying:
Align and thrive isn’t only for people who love yoga or who have lots of time to work on themselves - it’s for them sure, but it’s the busy, the overtired, the cranky, the can’t stop people who should consider joining! This is for self care, self love and better health. From one busy person to another, I’m telling you it made all the difference in my life! My world view has shifted. My routine is more streamlined and better for me. I’m more efficient because of it; because I feel good and healthy and energized! Thank you for what you do Dana. It is an amazing course.
- Jade Jagger
Dana Skoglund’s Align & Thrive program has been life changing for me in the the way it has created a major shift in my daily habits and my overall awareness in my daily choices. I was able to discover my true core values with assistance through the program which helps me make the best choices that align with my values. I am now able to sleep through the night without sleep aides, have decreased anxiety, and notice significant increased energy throughout the day. It has been so monumental in improving my overall health. I recommend this program to anyone wanting to improve self-care and become the best version of yourself.
- Kim Hansen
Words cannot express what Dana gifted me in Align and Thrive, but I will try! After years of pushing through fatigue and in the name of “getting it done,” I found something I lost: my body’s voice. It was loud - very loud - but I ignored it because I felt that didn’t have time to listen. Not anymore. The concepts we focused on in Align and Thrive helped me slow down, listen, and put my body and mind first so I can give more than ever before. Thanks to Dana, I found my way out of a lifelong cycle of punishment and recuperation, and I can never be more thankful.
— Kari Wright
I’ve realized that all of these habits are really teaching me how to care for myself, which is something I need more than anything. I’ve never learned that skill before. I have realized that nothing is more important than self care. My vision is shifting and clarifying, and things that don’t serve that higher purpose are falling away as things that do support it are becoming more urgent. I am slowly strengthening my “no” muscle and learning how to use it with grace and integrity...or perhaps my bigger “yes” is just beginning to eclipse all the stuff in the way.
