a little about me
Holly White: owner/operator
I was born and raised in Flagstaff, Arizona by my wonderful parents Dixon and Debra. My brother, AZ, and I are very closely connected through our shared passion for health and spirituality. My Mother, Debra, is a prime example of an empowered woman. She is an entrepreneur, accomplishes seemingly far-fetched goals on a regular basis, and always provides loving support to those around her. Dixon, My Father, passed away at the age of 47 in his sleep. Ironically, he was a world famous Paragliding Instructor, ex circus performer, and daily adrenaline junky. My brother and I were raised to test the limits of body and mind, while remaining light hearted and cheerful about the blessings we have. My yoga journey began at the age of 10, when my dad and I would wake up at 5 am every morning to do yoga together and share a meditation…I’d say my spiritual journey began the day I entered this Earth.
The trauma of my father dying was immense. My high school and college years were filled with sorrow and grief, masked with heavy drug use, abusive relationships, obsessive exercise, and disordered eating. My life is a prime example that the light can always shine through the dark if you allow it, which is a staple belief in my practices. I note these traumas, because we all have them. Yours may not be the same as mine, but no doubt you’ve been through a lot. The only way this world is going to collectively shift to a higher vibration is if we investigate our traumas in order to set them free for good.
After years of self-destructive behavior, I started changing aspects of my life little by little. Recognizing coping mechanisms I had developed, habits I had never tried living without, and relationships that did more harm than good. I began to mold these parts of my life into a completely different shape. If anything got in my way, I let it go in gratitude. I’m a firm believer that our hurts do not define us, but the way we choose to let them affect us does.
It’s much easier to get into a relationship than it is to get out of one, right? Same goes with our relationship to wellbeing. Many of us never even boarded the healthy train to begin with, let alone fell off of it.
So where's the station? ..Right in front of you!
How long will the ride be? ..Life long, my friend.
Will I see my friends and family again? ..Of course! You’re their new conductor.
How much is the ticket worth? ..Priceless, duh!
Leave your bags at home, you’ll receive everything you need at each stop along the way. Don’t worry, I'll be by your side the whole time.
Holly attended Northern Arizona University to receive her degree in Botany and Fungal Biology, as well as Universidad Veritas in Costa Rica to receive her Spanish degree. After graduating in 2014, Holly and her brother moved to the island of Kauai to seek adventure and leisure. One year later, Holly decided to leave the island and pursue a 200 hour International Yoga Teacher Certification for three months at Rishikesh Yog Peeth School in Rishikesh, India. She then traveled through Sri Lanka before returning home to the states. Holly finished up her degree from the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts as a Holistic Wellness Practitioner and received National Certifications as a Fitness and Nutrition Specialist and Behavior Change Specialist in June of 2018.
Holly's goal in traveling is to gain knowledge and experience in different healing modalities from around the world. She believes that each interaction in this life has great meaning. Holly's ultimate goal with her business is to continue personal development and health coaching while hosting quarter annual health and yoga retreats, bringing in the most loving healers she knows to share their gifts and knowledge. Each time she shares with a client, she hopes to learn even more. We are all teachers, healers, givers...some of us just have the desire to express it louder.
