Holistic Wellness Program
Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? Are you being pulled in multiple directions, and find it hard to make time for self care? Do you feel like you’re just going through the motions? Are you exhausted, on the verge of burnout, and dealing with health issues?
I know what it feels like. You know what you should be doing to be healthier, but can’t seem to find the time or make changes that stick. You have great intentions, but life gets in the way.
What if you could get out of your own way with a wellness program that seamlessly fits into your day?
That’s where we come in. We are on your side, and can provide you with support and accountability to integrate self-care into your daily life. Our holistic wellness program fits seamlessly into your day, so you can access the materials at your convenience, and have video, audio, and written resources at your fingertips 24/7.
We help you, the busy professional who is juggling multiple priorities, to integrate self-care into your daily life, and provide the support and accountability necessary to help you reach your goals.
At the end of this program, you will:
Be able to set and reach your goals, and handle all that life throws at you
Have implemented sustainable healthy habits
Feel better in your body
Be able to manage stress effectively
Have a clearer understanding of your needs, wants and desires, and be able to prioritize what’s important to you

Be more joyful and easier to be around
What do we mean by holistic wellness?
Holistic means we address all the things that nourish you: the work that you do; the food that you eat; your relationships; your level of activity; and your connection to that which is greater than you.
Wellness is living your life consciously in ways that improve your health and wellbeing.
What makes us different?
Our program is:
Looks at you as a whole person
Is not a diet
Provides the option for either quick check-ins or longer one-on-one coaching sessions
Is accessible 24/7 and beyond the 12-week coaching period
Options and Pricing
We have three options available to support you in a way that works for you.
Are you a do-it-yourselfer who just needs some tools, resources, and reminders? Our online-only option for only $699 will suit your DIY-style. This option includes full access to all of the program modules with online videos, audio, and supporting documents, and two 60-minute calls with a personal coach (an intake meeting at the start of your program to get you started, and a closing session in week 12).
Are you great at taking-in information and applying it, but need some accountability? Our standard program includes all of the online resources, plus five hours of one-on-one time with a personal coach throughout the 12-week program. This includes a 90-minute intake meeting to get you started, 30-minute sessions every other week for the core 10 weeks of the program, and a 60-minute closing session in week 12. The standard program investment is only $1,499*.
Are you starting from scratch and need more time, guidance, and support to digest the materials, keep you accountable and on track to meet your goals? Our premium program includes everything from our standard program, but one-on-one coaching sessions are 60-minutes rather than 30, giving you an extra 2.5 hours of individualized support. The premium program investment is $1,999*.
*Payment plans are available. Investments shown are for paying for the full program at the beginning of the program.

The best, and sometimes only, way to get perspective and tap into whether what you are doing is aligned with your ideals and desires is to stop, slow down, press pause.
By taking a time-out from your day-to-day routine, that can sometimes feel like auto-pilot, you have a better chance of tapping into who you really are, and what you truly want.
We'll give you tools and practices to help you take stock of where you are in life, settle your monkey-mind and tap into your intuition and inner wisdom.
To create sustainable, long-term change, you need to take action and make space for the things that nourish you.
When you're always running, it’s easy to overlook the things that contribute to your sense of fulfillment: healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual awareness.
In this pillar, the focus is on self care, connecting with yourself and others, and taking steps to prioritize what you want more of to crowd out the things that drain your energy.
Together we’ll work to set, and hold you accountable to reaching your goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, managing stress, and maximizing energy.
We will support you in creating a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.
As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What if I can’t get through all of the modules in the 12-week period?
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 in with 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 will 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 is 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? How do I know that this program will work for me?
A: We believe in our holistic approach to wellness, and have personally used the tools and resources that are presented in this program to implement healthy habits. We offer anyone who is interested in the program a free 30-minute consultation so together we can determine if our program is the right fit for you. If you decide to register, we are there 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 will give you your money back. Note: if you withdraw from the program and request a refund, you will 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 is the time commitment for this program?
A: Our program is designed to be self-paced and to provide helpful tools and resources that can be integrated into your day. The content provided includes 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 is no requirement that you complete them all in the 12-week period since you will have lifetime access to the program website.
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 small 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 went through training to become 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 300 hours of training at Nosara Yoga Institute in Costa Rica, and additional programs in Boulder, Colorado and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
I uncovered tools and created resources that support not only the physical heart, but the emotional heart 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 changes in 2012, and led my first 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!
Q: I don’t believe I can change, should I still sign up?
A: This program may not be for you. Only those who come into the program with a growth mindset and a belief that they are in charge of their life will benefit from this course.
"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
"Thank you so much for the guidance, support and friendship over the last year! I've enjoyed the program very much and feel like I've learned a lot as well. Whether it was yoga sessions, running in the park or discussing foods and habits I always enjoyed our meetings. Thank you again for everything!" - Kendra
"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
