Authentic Life Journey
Authentic Life Journey’s self-discovery goal is to guide you on the path to understand energy, and to discover your unique, authentic voice and life purpose. The three primary ways we guide students are through Yoga, Mindfulness Coaching, and Energy Work.
We are a group of empathic, compassionate and intuitive practitioners supporting our community as you experience your healing journey. We’ll help you expand and grow through our Virtual Energy Healing Studio using in person services, online learning, live streaming classes, workshops and virtual private services. We’ll also provide destination retreats for deep explorations.

Authentic Life Journey Coach, Reiki Master, RYT 500;
Authentic Life Journey Founder
Ramona has been supporting and guiding sessions for nearly two decades in the Central Florida area. Her journey began as she explored ways to help her own life get in balance and become her authentic self. She began in traditional massage therapy and has expanded to energy work, yoga, coaching, retreats and more. Through experiencing her own journey of healing she felt driven to honor her call to be of support to others. She finds ways to support others by shining a light in the darkness. Through these programs and classes, Ramona invites you to discover and pick up your own light and step onto your authentic life journey path.
As an empath and intuitive being she offers opportunities for her community to honor your own truth and connect to your own intuitive divine knowing. Through connecting to the heart and learning to act on what the heart guides you to, you can find more ease and understanding of a world that can seem overwhelming. Understanding your intuition, empathic impacts and creating practices to honor the empath you are is at the center of the services Ramona offers the community of light workers and like-minded journeyers.
Ramona offers virtual and live sessions for Reiki, Yoga, Sound Healing, Meditation, Spiritual Guidance Coaching and Retreats.
