Hi! I’m Cassandra Bodzak, thanks for stopping by..

Take a minute and press play to hear my “about me” straight from yours truly. I wanted you to have a chance to ‘e-meet’ me and let you in on how I got started doing what I do and exactly what it is I do, directly from me.  

Who am I or “what’s my title”? Honestly, I have a fairly hard time with that question. I don’t like defining myself. (That’s mostly why I recorded the video!) I’m LIGHT, I’m a daughter, a friend, a mentor, a mom to a five year old goldfish. I’m also an author, blogger, YouTuber, TV personality, healthy cooking expert, wellness coach and meditation teacher. At the core of it all, regardless of what fancy title you want to smack on it, I help people create a life the LIGHTS them up from inside out.

I’ve been there, I’ve done it for myself and that’s why I’m so darn good at helping others do the same. I’ve hit the lows, I’ve eaten an entire tub of raw cookie dough at 2am and then cried myself to sleep. I’ve spent four hours on the treadmill to try to fill an empty void, only to collapse from exhaustion. I’ve been with the guy I thought I wanted, gotten the job I thought would make everything better and still felt like something was missing. I spent years of my life simply FUNCTIONING, desperate for a better way, knowing that I had it in me to FLY but not knowing how to get my feet off the ground.

After years of disordered eating, food allergies and finally getting painfully sick in college, I learned how to FUEL myself so that I felt amazing, energized and FINALLY at home in my body. I was able to make peace with my body, love and appreciate the beautiful vessel I was given and ignite my inner light. I decided to become a certified holistic health coach through the  Institute of Integrative Nutrition. It was there I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. The school helped me hone my skills and gain the confidence to get out there and start working with people one on one to help them have a better relationship with food, start loving their body and changing their lives.

Once I got the food/body discussion flowing, I took on my anxiety, insecurity, stress-addiction, when life’s circumstances ( a devastating break up combined with a loved one’s terminal illness) brought me to a deeper, darker place than I had ever experienced before, I found with in me a LIGHT that was dying to start shining. I found meditation through my laptop, not some fancy retreat or expensive teacher. After my “Eat, Pray, Love” moment, as I so fondly call it, I spent an entire week in my NYC apartment, meditating, sleeping, eating, meditating more, sleeping, meditating more and going inside in a BIG way. I totally surrendered and opened myself up for guidance. I was lead to A Course in Miracles, Abraham Hicks, my east village spirit junkie sister Gabby Bernstein and my soul sister + love pioneer Jennifer Kass. I learned through following my inner guidance, trying a bunch of different methods and discovering what worked for me. I started to see yoga in a different way, fell into the beautiful hands of Gurmukh at Golden Bridge Kundalini Yoga in NYC and let the path unfurl in front of me. It has been a glorious journey and I am learning more and more every day.

I now have the pleasure of sharing these game-changing tools with the world. I work with clients all over the world via Skype to help them bust through whatever blocks they are facing and get back into the flow of life. I mentor them from merely functioning to full blow flight. If you think one on one coaching might be just what you need, check out my offerings here to see if we’d be a good fit! I strive to be of service in many capacities, regardless of whether or not you are one of my one on one clients.
