You have the power to make your dreams come true.

Even if you have no idea how to do that.

Even if they seem crazy or impossible.

And even if you don’t believe you can do it… yet.
When you go after your dreams, a few things happen:

I’ve got tools, practices and perspectives to help you.

I call them self-love strategies and I send one out every Sunday. You can sign up to get them in your inbox.

Hi! I’m Aili.

I’m a coach, writer and Kundalini yoga & meditation teacher.

I’m also the creator of the podcast, Pure Light.

I help people who have a habit of negative self-talk stop beating themselves up, so that they can step into the opportunities life offers and actually enjoy the ride.


“I’ve learned that I don’t have to listen to my inner voice of self-doubt. It is not the truth!”


Working with me can help you:

  • Trust yourself to take risks and make changes in your life
  • Give yourself permission to do what you feel called to do (instead of listening to all the noise and talking yourself out of it)
  • Free up mental real estate and stop obsessing about every little thing
  • Have confidence in your decisions (rather than constantly second guessing yourself)
  • Stop listening to the voice of fear and self-doubt and take courageous action

Schedule a free strategy session to see if coaching is the right next step for you.

And sign up to get self-love strategies in your inbox every Sunday to help you with all of the above.

About my professional background

I’m certified as a health coach by Duke Integrative Medicine and the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching, which means I’m equipped to help people be at their best in every aspect of life.

I’ve been teaching and mentoring for the program at Duke for the last 4 years.

I did my Kundalini teacher training with Sat Dharam, who was a student of Yogi Bhajan. Before that, I studied hatha, vinyasa and yin yoga at the School of Sacred Arts.

Prior to all this, I got a degree in engineering and worked as a management consultant, which taught me how to get to the root of a problem, as well as how to create and manage change.

People who’ve influenced my work and thinking include:

Eckhart Tolle
Oprah (especially Super Soul Sunday)
Elizabeth Gilbert
Kyle Cease
Leo Babauta
Steven Pressfield
Seth Godin
Brené Brown
Glennon Doyle Melton

I highly recommend checking out their work and often quote them on my podcast.

About my body of work

Everything I create is designed to help you feel confident, happy and free.

On my podcast, Pure Light, I talk about how you can believe in yourself and be happy with who you are, so that you feel worthy of your craziest dreams and confident in your power to make them happen.

My writing is often about defining things (like life/balance/success) on your own terms and seeing your thoughts in a new light. You can find some of it on The Huffington Post and Thrive Global.

I’ve also published guided meditations on Insight Timer to help you feel calm, relaxed and connected to source.

If fear tends to stop you, check out Become Your Bravest Self. It’s a free resource I created to help you free yourself from the voice of self-doubt.

I send out self-love strategies every Sunday. Here are a couple of examples:

I believe inner wisdom trumps conventional wisdom.

It takes courage to trust yourself to act on it.

And it’s the only way to experience your infinite potential.

I’m in. Are you?
