🎉 YogiNest is 6 🎉
Hi, I know it’s been a while 👋🏽 My priorities shifted when I went back to college this past August to study psychology. I knew I would be busy but I majorly underestimated how demanding and time-consuming it would actually be. Between school, YogiNest, friends, family, and scrambling to find a sliver of time for personal care social media took a major backseat (which if I’m being honest has been heavenly 😇)… BUT I wanted to take a moment today to celebrate our 6 year anniversary 🥳 I'm here today to say this...

🖤 First and foremost, thank you to every client, past, and present. You're the reason I started this business, to begin with, and I would be nothing without you. I'm forever grateful 🙌🏽 Each of you hold a special place in my heart - XOXO

This business has changed my life. No matter what happens I will never regret giving it my best shot ...

Dear YogiNest,
🖤 Thank you for every success, every “failure,” every lesson learned

🖤 Thank you for being my best teacher

🖤 Thank you for challenging me

🖤 Thank you for helping me grow as an individual and as a business owner - The things I've learned over the last 6 years are invaluable and have impacted every aspect of my life

🖤 Thank you to everyone who’s supported me and encouraged me to keep going even when I've wanted to give up

🖤 Thank you for all the lessons yet to come... this is just the beginning. I'm so excited to see where school takes me, how it guides me to be a better coach, and how becoming a psychologist will allow me to help more clients on a deeper level. I can't wait 🥳

What a wild ride this has been, a ride I’ll never regret, a ride I'll never forget!

XOXO - Jenna 😘


✨ Overcoming = A Healing Community ✨⁠⁠
The idea for Overcoming has been taking up residence in my brain for many years. I started YogiNest 5 years ago with zero experience running a business. I'm proud of everything I've accomplished over the last 5 years. I'm grateful for all the relationships I've built, and all the "failures" (which I prefer to call opportunities to learn), as well as successes, but a lot has changed over the last 5 years.⁠⁠
I can tell you with 100% certainty that I've personally changed over the last 5 years as well. I've learned so much about running a business, retaining clients, providing quality guidance & coaching skills that help my clients achieve their goals.⁠ And in August I'll be returning to college to study psychology so I can better serve my client's needs. ⁠⁠
The knowledge I've gained over the last 5 years about myself, my clients & running a business is what lead me to create Overcoming.⁠⁠
Overcoming is about community. It's about healing collectively. It's about providing a safe, non-judgmental & inclusive space to openly discuss life's challenges. It will also provide actionable, holistic, and alternative methods to help you cope with, manage, and overcome the obstacles that are currently keeping you from living your life to its fullest potential.⁠⁠
The two most important things I've learned as I've coached clients over the last 5 years are as follows:⁠⁠
1. No matter who you are, where you came from, or what your life story is, that story will undoubtedly include some kind of obstacle that you've had to overcome. ⁠⁠
2. It's easier to overcome life's challenges & obstacles with the support of a qualified professional and/or a supportive community of people who care about you and understand what you've been through.⁠⁠
...and that's where we come in. Overcoming is the supportive community you've been searching for. We care about you and understand what you're going through. Together we will overcome ❤️✨🙌🏽⁠⁠
Stay tuned for more information about when we'll be launching and join our community by heading over to @_overcoming_ and giving us a follow - xo


Guys, what the heck am I doing 😂

Who goes back to school to become a psychologist in their late 30's? Um, me 🙋🏽‍♀️ hi, this crazy person 😂⁠

No, but for real...⁠


Let me tell you why 👇🏽⁠

🤍 I'm going to be in my late 40's someday anyway, why not be in my late 40's AND be a psychologist!⁠

🤍 I love learning! Lifelong learner here 👋🏾

🤍 For my own self-improvement & personal development. ⁠

🤍 I have an incredibly supportive group of people around me. To my biggest fans, supporters & cheerleaders (you know who you are) THANK YOU! I'm forever grateful ❤️⁠

🤍 Humans are resilient! No matter what we go through, how long it takes, or how hard it is we find a way to get back up & do the damn thing 💪🏽That's exactly what I plan to do!⁠

🤍 To be of greater service. Though we are resilient we are not bulletproof. People have been through so much in the last year & in their lifetimes. We can do it alone, sure we can, but we don't have to. I believe my purpose in life is to aid as many people as I can on their journey through the toughest times in their lives. Together we are stronger, we can heal & we can get through anything 🙌🏽⁠

🤍 To be part of the solution. I want to live in a world where there is no mental health stigma. When talking about real problems is accepted, treated with care & greeted with open arms that are ready to support & nurture. We have a long way to go, but it's not impossible & I think we're headed in the right direction.⁠

🤍 To bring mindfulness techniques into the field of psychology. It's starting to happen slowly & it's finally being acknowledged as a powerful & effective complementary healing tool. Let's keep going. ⁠

Finally, to anyone out there that's been dying to do something for as long as they can remember but for whatever reason has postponed... DO IT!⁠

It's never too late, life is short & it's your life to live. Do the things that make you happy, that bring you joy & the things you know you'll regret not doing later. The only time you're guaranteed is now, so make it count!⁠




I’m going, going, back, back, to college, college 😂⁠

Remember a few months ago when I told you there were going to be some changes around here? Well, that’s still true, but those changes have shifted & changed once again 🙈⁠

For months I’ve been working on developing 2 new wellness series to complement the work I’ve done with YogiNest over the last 5 years. During that time I found myself being bombarded by the same message over & over. It was coming from clients, family & friends. I couldn’t escape it.⁠

Deep-rooted trauma was surfacing in everyone’s life around me. Maybe the events that unfolded in 2020 triggered these painful memories, but no matter the cause the people in my life needed me. Particularly my clients. I feel confident in my coaching skills but these traumas & triggers were above my paygrade. They were experiences I felt would be safer in the hands of a therapist/psychologist. The problem is, these's clients have been with me for 4-5 years & we’ve built a level of trust they haven’t had with anyone else, including therapists/psychologists they’ve worked with in the past. ⁠

So I pondered, thought deeply about solutions, ways I could support them & people I could recommend them to. I kept thinking, what can I do to help them if I’m not a qualified mental health practitioner & they don’t want a recommendation?⁠

Ding, ding, ding… well then you BECOME the qualified mental health practitioner 🥳👩🏽‍🎓⁠

To be clear, this is something I’ve been thinking about for many years, but my life has been such a whirlwind. I started college in 2011, lupus got the best of me, I had to drop out, was put on permanent disability, spent 3 years putting my lupus into remission & started my own business 😵‍💫😂 but the desire never went away. ⁠

This is what everyone in my life has been encouraging me to do for years, and this is what my clients need from me. I’ve always been the one everyone calls for advice & the one people come to when they need someone to hold space for them. ⁠


…and in 20 years I’ll be a psychologist 😂 Okay, maybe not 20 years, but that’s what it feels like 🥴⁠

I'm embarking on this adventure for myself, so I can learn more about myself, and continue my self-improvement & personal development journey.

I'm embarking on this journey to better serve my clients and future clients.

I'm embarking on this journey because there are few things that interest me more than the human brain, the human condition, our resilience, why we do the things we do, and so much more 🧠

I'm excited, scared, determined, nervous, motivated...all the feelings, but mostly I feel like 👇🏽


Stay tuned,
Your Future Psychologist ✌🏽😘

P.S. This book from 1969 is not my required textbook. This was my mom's. My books have not arrived yet, but my first day of school is August 30th!!! Wish me luck, sanity, and lots of scholarships as I head out on one of the most challenging AND exciting adventures of my life🤞🏽☘️😵‍💫

P.P.S. I will continue to coach while attending school. All current clients will remain my clients. All new clients will be added to my waitlist & notified when there has been an opening. Thank you for being patient as I navigate my new normal ❤️
