A wellness program for the busy professional who is ready to take back control of their life
Do any of these sound familiar?
you work long hours
are pulled in multiple directions and can't find time for you
have been stuck in a rut for years and feel like you're just going through the motions
tried every diet and fitness fad out there with no results
feel yucky every day or just don’t feel like yourself
are exhausted and on the verge of burnout
dealing with health issues and at a loss for how you can turn things around on you own
Are you at your wit's end trying to be healthy?
Are you feeling frustrated, confused, and overwhelmed by all the conflicting advice? It's either take this medication or supplement, follow this diet or that one, or do this work out. All of which feel impossible, restrictive, or like you have to be "perfect" to feel good?
Have you seen doctors about your health issues who don't seem to care about understanding the root causes, and leave you feeling like you must be doing something wrong to have these chronic problems?
If you're so TIRED of trying to beat yourself into a better, healthier person, you're in the right place.
You don't need to be "fixed" - the right answers are already within you!
Diets don't make you healthy. Counting calories is not sustainable. Insane workout regimens that don't consider that you have a full-time job and a family don't make sense.
Of course, making lifestyle improvements won't be easy. But when you understand your why, it’s easier to commit.
Health is not only physical, but emotional, spiritual, and mental. Rather than focusing on just exercise, or just nutrition, or just meditation, this program provides support in all areas of life and health, and provides PRACTICAL information on how to apply what you learn to your everyday life.
What does "holistic wellness" mean exactly?
Holistic means we address all the things that nourish you and affect your overall wellbeing: the work that you do; the food that you eat; your relationships; your level of activity; and your mindset.
Wellness is living your life consciously in ways that improve your health and wellbeing so you can have more joy and pleasure in your life
There's no quick fix, or magic bullet that works for everyone, but there are things that you can start doing today that will help you make lifelong improvements. We’re all different, and our bodies have different needs at different stages in life. If you're tired of someone handing you list of things that you can or can't eat, this program is for you.
At Firefly, we're not into fads or diets, but helping you create long-term, sustained lifestyle improvements.
In this program you'll learn to listen to your body to understand how it reacts to certain foods, and different forms of movement.
The best exercise is the one that you will do! So, you'd better enjoy it, because willpower can only get you so far.
Stop feeling guilty about not being able to stick to a diet, or meet unrealistic goals.
You can do this! We've got your back! We will challenge you and hold you accountable, but also support you 100%.
We'll work together to break down your goals into actionable, baby steps. Small changes made over several months can result in huge health benefits.
I get it. You're busy! You know what you "should" be doing to be healthier, but life gets in the way. That's why I designed this program so that it fits your lifestyle and routine. Access the materials at your convenience. Video, audio, and written resources are at your fingertips 24/7.
It takes time and commitment to change your habits, but you can make lasting improvements for your health! This program provides a framework that's fun, AND life-changing. We're here with you through it all. Examine various aspects of health in a “try-it-and-see” approach.
In this program, you'll receive tools and support to:
pay attention to the wealth of information within you to create a life you love
shed the things that are weighing you down physically, emotionally, and mentally
understand what makes you reach for certain foods and how to combat that
change your relationship with food, and be excited to eat healthy things
upgrade your mindset so you can really listen to what your body needs
move in ways that bring you joy and don't feel like just another task or to-do item
destress so you can have more energy, feel good, sleep better, be happier
feel more in control of your health and life
incrementally reach your goals through actionable steps and gain more confidence
make lifestyle improvements that stick
Take the first step on a journey that helps you feel good about yourself, make healthy choices, and be more in control of your own life.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What if I can’t get through all of the online modules in 12-weeks?
A: The modules are self-paced, so you can move through the materials as fast or slow as you like, and in a way that fits your schedule.
While the one-on-one coaching calls for the standard and premium programs are all scheduled to take place within a 12-week period, you’ll have lifetime access to the online content, including any changes or additions that are made in the future, as long as Firefly continues to offer this program.
That means you can come back to the modules as often as you need.
If you find you need additional support and accountability beyond the 12 weeks, there's an option to add more one-on-one coaching sessions. This option will become available to you in week 12.
Q: I’ve tried other health coaching programs in the past. What makes this program different?
A: I believe in a holistic approach to wellness, and have personally used the tools and resources that are presented in this program to implement healthy habits. I offer anyone who is interested in the program a free 30-minute consultation so together we can determine if this program is the right fit for you. If you decide to register, I’m here to support you every step of the way.
If you make the commitment to yourself, honestly complete all of the modules and assignments, and show up to your coaching calls, you will see results. If after the first two weeks of the program, you feel that it’s not for you, we'll give you your money back. Note: if you withdraw from the program and request a refund, you’ll no longer have access to the online content, and any one-on-one coaching sessions remaining in your agreement will be cancelled.
Q: I have so many things on my plate right now, I’m not sure I can commit to one more thing. What’s the time commitment for this program?
A: The program is designed to be self-paced and to provide helpful tools and resources that can be integrated into your day. The online modules include video, audio, and written formats so that you can download what works for you, and watch, listen or read at your convenience. It’s not about completely overhauling your life in one day, but rather replacing current habits and behaviors with new ones. The modules are designed to be moved through one at a time and there’s no requirement that you complete them all in the 12-week period since you will have lifetime access to the program materials.
Q: Who is the coach for the one-on-one sessions?
A: That’s me, Carrie Lehtonen, founder of Firefly Community. I was once like you. I was busy running on the hamster wheel, climbing the corporate ladder, and ignoring that voice inside that was telling me “stop, you’re going the wrong way!”
My heart decided enough was enough in 2009. A heart attack at 31-years old stopped me in my tracks. My heart was suffering from all the pushing, climbing, and proving. I discovered that in order to heal my heart, I needed to stop long enough to
listen to that voice inside, take action and make time for the things that made me feel more "me"
- to make a commitment to myself.
On my journey to a healthier, happier life, I received education in over 100 dietary theories and
various lifestyle-coaching methods. I became a registered yoga teacher, which was only the
beginning of my deep dive into the world of yoga. I continued my education in all things yoga
(it’s about more than just the poses) with training in Costa Rica and across the U.S.
I uncovered tools and created resources that support not only physical health, but emotional,
mental, and spiritual health as well. I was able to let go of the expectations of society, others, and
even myself, and to connect to what I really want out of life. I made friends with my monkey-mind
to quiet the noise, healed my body and spirit, cleaned up my diet, started managing my stress,
ditched the prescriptions, and my heart’s been healthy ever since!
I started coaching people to make sustainable lifestyle improvements in 2012, and led my first yoga retreat in 2015. My life’s work now is to help others ignite their inner light, and gain the tools and resources so they can thrive, because the world needs us all to shine!
"Carrie helped me to determine what areas of my life I wanted to change or modify. She organized and outlined steps to realistically make progress on my goals in the areas of diet, exercise, goal-setting, and reflection. She listened to my dilemmas and challenges with understanding and gave encouraging advice. She helped guide and direct me in self-discovery and in tracking progress. She gave me concrete tools to help achieve my short term goals and made me think of bigger picture of how I want my life to look in the future. She really supported me though a very difficult time in my life. She provided me with some great recipes, yoga sequences, journaling tools, and self-evaluation worksheets to help me in the future as well. I have really enjoyed working with Carrie as she is a caring and insightful person with unique wisdom from her own experiences. I am looking forward to doing another retreat with Firefly Community this summer." - Bonnie
"I worked with Carrie for a 3 month period. During that time she was very supportive. She provided guidance and encouragement while holding me accountable to reaching my established goals. Carrie also introduced me to the practice of meditation which I have learned to enjoy!" -Shannon
