As an attorney and Silicon Valley business owner, her wellness journey started when she had one of those life-changing moments that begins in the hospital. The cardiologist said, “Change your life, or else.” In order to learn how to reduce her stress and manage change, she entered the Hans Selye Foundation’s Canadian Institute of Stress and became a certified stress and wellness consultant, specializing in stress reduction, change management, and work-life balance.

She also became a licensed massage therapist, and a certified yoga, meditation and Pilates instructor, and taught yoga and Pilates four times a week for 8 years.

Recent research has shown that a great source of stress for many people is the anger that comes from holding grudges. Makana studied with and is certified by Fred Luskin, Ph.D., the founder of the Stanford Forgiveness Project.
