My passion is to empower women to  discover their own vision for their lives and release generational beliefs and limiting mindsets. 

Hi, i'm Yuri!

about me

I am the CEO/Founder of Balanced Lifestyle & Wellness. Our mission is to empower individuals, especially women, to thrive with clarity, self-love, and resilience. Recently, we've expanded our coaching programs to assist couples in transforming their marriages with purpose and aiding parents in breaking destructive generational habits to nurture and strengthen their relationships with spouses and families.

Balanced Lifestyle & Wellness was born from my personal journey. Growing up, I witnessed my own mother struggle with unresolved developmental traumas, which left her suffering from stress and anxiety due to a lack of emotional coping mechanisms. Therefore, seeing many individuals, especially women, projecting their stress and anxiety in workplaces and to their families, inspired me to create a platform offering holistic solutions for mental and emotional well-being. Additionally, being raised in a multicultural environment led to experiencing cultural shock, loss of identity, and a sense of not knowing where I belong. I had to overcome generational and cultural limiting beliefs and learn how to harness the power of the subconscious mind, effecting transformative shifts in mindset and outlook.

Overall, I have over 10 years of up-to-date training and research in mind-body medicine to help you short-track your ability to learn and embody the latest cutting-edge information. I utilize solid frameworks from Mastering in Mental Health and Wellness to support your divine healing with ease and love.
