Feeling out of sorts? Not quite whole? Not fulfilled? Un-motivated and perhaps even powerlessness?


I’ve felt all those things. And I knew I had to change my trajectory.


I know first hand that by changing your internal world, you change the external one too. We are a combination of our daily thoughts our daily actions and what we choose to focus on inevitably will become our reality.


If you are looking to reclaim your power, energy, motivation and mojo…


You’ve found a place to begin.

Hi, I’m Karissa.


In the patriarchal society we live in, its common for women to feel powerless and lacking control.


It often seems that if we’re not giving away our power freely, someone is trying to take it from us… at a cost too great to ourselves.


I’m here to tell you, from my own experience, it all begins with a choice. A choice to own your life. To believe that you are capable of creating your wildest and greatest dreams.


I believe the mind and the body are one, and what we do to one affects the other.


What we consume becomes us.


How we expend our energy ultimately determines how much we have.


We complicate what is really simplistic.


We are energy.


And we must maintain our energy in and our energy out.


The difference becomes who we are.

Work With Me

Powerhouse Prana is based on the concept that with every breathe, with every choice, with every thought and action we have the ability to reclaim our power.


It all starts with one breathe, one moment, where you decide you are worthy of investing in the greatest relationship you’ll ever have…


the one with you.

  • 1:1 Coaching

    There is no one size fits all methodology. The crux of coaching is; where are you at now, where do you want to be; whats getting in the way? I'll assist you in identifying the obstacles that are keeping you stuck and finding ways to remove them so you can the space you deserve to step into your most powerful prana, or life force.

  • Recipes

    After a divorce that led me to dive into healthcare during the COVID-19 pandemic, I was flabbergasted at the lack of knowledge around nutrition, the brain gut connection, and how so many of us are using food not as the powerful medicinal force it can be, but a drug to dissociate and disconnect us from ourselves. My recipes are a powerful asset towards greater holistic health.

  • Mindful Eating

    Food is energy. Prana is life force energy. And mindful eating is so much more than suggested recipes – this will help you tap into your rest and digest parasympathetic nervous system in a way that you're noticing if you're full, detoxifying your mind and gut from the addictions and cravings that don't serve your system, and naturally feeling more like the powerhouse of energy you were destined to be.

  • Group Coaching

    We are not meant to do life alone. In fact our true nature is that of a tribal community. A community that makes us feel seen, heard and known. Thats the crux of what we'll do here. We'll empathize, validate, and process what comes up in a way that demystifies toxic shame and creates a feeing of hey ``me, too!”

  • Daily Rituals

    These tools are the secret sauce to coaching. Sprinkle in the powerful positive psychology methodology I've learned through my coaching courses and yoga teacher trainings and up-level your quality of life.

  • Powerhouse Prana Performance Sessions

    My modern mobile lifestyle has inspired me to provide content online. Over a Zoom session, I'll attempt to meet your greatest needs through challenging vinyasa flows, ashtanga short form, and deep fascial releasing yin classes.

Here are what clients who have worked with me have to say about their experience:
