Hi! I’m Tina from www.breathewithtina.com.

I'm in my 30’s learning how to breathe deeply.

After graduating from Northwestern University, I spent my 20’s all over the place. It was totally fun! I was a PBS news producer turned McKinsey consultant turned tech entrepreneur. I traveled to 40+ countries, living in India, Denmark and South Africa (World Cup!) while my US base was in NYC.

I ate reasonably well, drank water, kept active, and slept as much as I could. Still, on Thanksgiving 2013, I totally burned out.

I remembered Ayurveda, the oldest medical healing system on Earth, from my motorcycle ride through India. Maybe I wasn’t setting the right foundation for longevity? A mentor encouraged me to pursue my intuition so I studied with Dr. Vasant Lad at the Ayurvedic Institute.

Ayurveda rocked my world. In fact, it is the one thing I have learned that almost everyone I know has asked me about, often repeatedly. I now coach companies on how to implement policies to communicate to and take care of their people. I also speak at startup events. For the last 5 years, I’ve been running a communications & strategy firm called Kinship.

Here’s the full story.
