Hello, I’m Macala. I teach women of color to quiet their minds and calm their anxiety so that they can become present and enjoy their lives. 


Like many women, probably like you, I went to college, started off in a professional career, and

eventually started my own company. In 15 years, I built something that most women would be proud of.  But in 2017, what I built felt hollow. What used to fill me up, now left me with a feeling empty.

More often than not, I didn’t even have the energy to get out of bed. I was agitated, anxious, and often fell victim to the conversations running in my head.  And then, I had an Elizabeth Gilbert Eat, Pray, Love moment. In the book, she wrote:

Hadn’t I wanted this? I had actively participated in every moment of the creation of this life. So why didn’t I see myself in any of it? The only thing more impossible than staying was leaving.


To teach women how to develop ways ways to manage stress and anxiety so that they can overcome burnout and being overwhelmed while also developing the ability to live int he present moment.

Where It took me

Elizabeth realized that how she was living didn’t serve who the woman she had become. I was in the same boat. And I knew I couldn’t stay like this. I had to find meaning, my spiritual health and inner well being depended on it. I began soul searching to find what was missing, and being able to fix what was wrong. After years of quiet study and self-guided introspection, I realized I felt hollow because I wasn’t feeding my soul. 

Growing up, and before I had started to embrace the stories of what I should be, I used to love three things - reading, writing, and horses. They fed my soul. So in 2020, I embraced those things once again. By doing so, I discovered breathwork and mindfulness. 

I fell in love with studying them, and also incorporating them into my daily life. Over the course of three years, I learned to use them to quiet my mind, and to thoughtfully look at everything. And before I think I consciously realized it, the anxiety stopped, the racing thought stopped, and the voices in my head went silent. The decompression and space it allowed was beautiful. 

And now, I help other women of color do it. And I often use my horses to help me. So if you’re a woman who’s stressed, tired, overwhelmed, and doesn't know how to stop, I invite you to explore mindfulness with me. It’ll be dirty and gritty, but it will be done with grace and it will be real.

The ability to enjoy the present moment with nothing running through your head? This is how you get it. 


    I'm commited to developing safe, inclusive programs those who identify as women.


    There is no judgement here, only honest, open and transparent conversation.


    If you're ready to do the work, then I'll support your journey.
