We’re here today to bring you a really refreshing look at how to break out of stagnation in your life and how to get to a place where you’re both content and fulfilled with yourself and within your relationship.


Joining us in this conversation is our incredible friend, Emily Pereira. Emily is an international retreat leader, yoga teacher, and women’s coach. By her clients, she is also known as the “relationship whisperer!” Over the years, Emily has amassed a treasure trove of astonishing wisdom and powerful practices that she has used to transform her life and hundreds of other women.


Emily was so amazing in this episode (as she always is!) She not only shared her journey of how she got unstuck when she found herself stagnant but she shares how everyone else can do the same as well. She speaks about the portal that opens up in times of great contraction,  the importance of giving yourself permission, the magic that happens at the edge of your comfort zone, how to begin to live more in alignment with your truth, and how to bring freshness into your life when things feel stale.


This conversation really inspired us and got us really thinking about where we want to both personally and within our coupleship. There’s always more work to be doing in creating the life of your dreams and Emily shares some of the incredible ways you can get started on this journey.
