feminine leadership & empowerment advisor * transformational speaker
best-selling author * workshop & retreat leader & mentor
founder of the international Path of Self Love School
Hi! My name is Christine Arylo. Glad you stopped by. You can get my full bio by clicking here + I thought I’d tell you a little more about me… In my bio you’ll see that I am a three-time best selling author, accomplished writer and speaker, M.B.A. from Kellogg & former marketing executive and leadership communications director, now visionary entrepreneur and transformational teacher whose programs and retreats have reached over 35,000 people, and a certified yoga and meditation teacher specializing in cultivating Vitality and releasing Stress… I also founded an international self-love movement and school ten years ago, whose mission it is educate girls and women worldwide on how to tangibly, practically and powerfully stay true to themselves no matter what… I’ve spent over 15 years studying and teaching others ancient wisdom that I’ve modified for our modern lives and world…
And I spend a lot of my time as a leadership advisor and mentor to women leaders making a powerful impact in the world through their work + presence, in ways that also sustain & support their personal health and happiness to thrive.
And while all those things are true…what you won’t learn in the bio is what’s stirring in my heart & soul which gets me out of bed every day to do the work I do. I’m deeply committed to teaching people how to transform and architect lives that are BOTH successful + sustainable and that support them to thrive in all ways.… unleashing the presence and vitality within to bring their full selves to all parts of their lives, without feeling like they have to sacrifice, but instead feel empowered, confident & compassionate in the choices they make. Free to follow what is truly aligned with their inner wisdom, even if it goes against conventional wisdom.
I am passionate about creating a world in which the systems we work and live support all beings to thrive. Finding new ways of working and living that go beyond “managing stress & full plates,” that give people ‘super powers’ to transform burnout & overwhelm into balance + vitality, and that value compassion over criticism, freedom over fear, and possibility over scarcity, as ways to motivate ourselves and others in the choices we make and actions we take.
I am committed to redefining what power looks like, so that we do not have to alter ourselves to fit in or rise to positions of leadership + influence, but instead, it is our very feminine presence and perspective, and deeply rooted self-worth, that empowers us, and provides the resources and platforms we need to make the shifts we seek for ourselves, our families, and humanity.
I’ve worked within the corporate systems and as a leadership communications consultant, and for the last ten years, I’ve dedicated my work to speaking with and mentoring amazing women leaders working within the systems – business, corporate, education, healthcare, tech, non-profit, government – and outside the systems – entrepreneurs, visionary thought leaders, and social change agents – . What I have seen over and over again is that the change we desire to make and see starts within ourselves… how we make our choices, see ourselves, and relate to systems we work, live and participate in.
Which means… If we want our lives – careers, work-life balance, impact and influence, relationships, financial health and personal wellbeing – to be different, then we start with DOING OUR LIVES DIFFERENTLY.
And… if we want the systems to change to recognize our worth, see our gifts, give us a voice, create structures that support what we care about, then we have to be willing to stand in our authentic FEMININE POWER rooted in our own sense of deep self-love and self-worth, together.
That’s where I come in…
15 years ago I realized that neither my college educations or many work experiences (or even my weekly yoga class) had given me the wisdom + the tools I needed to truly thrive in the world as a woman at this time. So I immersed myself into the ancient wisdom of the divine feminine, yogic practice, and earth-based traditions. It was there I found the answers to how to create a sustainable + successful personal and professional life in which all parts can thrive.
Practices + perspectives + and ways to elevate our own presence, and from the inside out create shift.
Today, I write, speak, coach, + guide others individually and groups of all sizes, from small + intimate retreats, group programs and interactive workshops to big stages at conferences or breakouts for deeper dialogue, to virtual webcasts, live-streams and classes on topics such as:
- Cultivating Your Power of Feminine Presence – I call this “Fierce Grace” and when a woman has it, she leads her whole life – work, family, self, community – centered, confident, calm and clear.
- Going from Burnout to Balance, from the Inside Out – Giving women an Xray into their ‘Internal Operating Systems” programmed to overwhelm and self sacrifice instead of self-sustainability so she can rewire herself + put small but mighty practices in place that help her focus on what matters, downshift daily, create space for herself inside a busy schedule, say no without guilt, stop overworking, and more.
- Reforming your “Inner Mean Girl” – Most women have a inner bully that sabotages her by comparing her, driving her to perfectionist standards, focusing on the wrong things, obsessing about what she did or didn’t do, feeling like a fraud or failure… but when you meet this inner force, and befriend her, you can start to transform it into an ally vs a foe (based on best-selling book + program that has reached over 30,000 women).
- Rising Together, The Power of Sisterhood: Cultivating a Culture of Collaboration, Inspiration, + Connection Among Women – when women drop the masks, admit the comparison, and realize they don’t have to fight for attention or position, but together are more powerful than any system or structure they work within, big shift happens. And everyone wins.
- Feminine Leadership – the 6 Feminine Super Powers of the Most Empowered Women Leaders – instead of looking for something outside of her to give her power, when a woman has activated these, she knows she is the source of power.
I also continue to work to bring self-love to women and girls worldwide through our self-love school whose intention is to make self love accessible to all… from those in prison systems and recovery programs, to girls in colleges and grade school, to single moms to moms trying to manage it all. We have trained teachers and facilitators and coaches on 6 continents. Our goal is to serve 1 Billion people self-love by teaching the teachers and giving the self-love technology to those serving women and girls in their communities in many ways.
I’m committed – standing with you – to unleashing the power of the feminine heart, to re-establishing a harmony to the rhythms of our lives and the balance of our relationships with each other, with this planet and with ourselves.
A world in which you, I and no person we know puts so much pressure on themselves to do, be and have it all – but instead is so attuned to their own inner wisdom and so embodied in their authentic presence and power, that they CHOOSE to create the life their soul was meant to live. And a result rise to be a leader in their workplace, communities, family and personal well being.
We cannot do, be and have it all. We must make the choices that align with our soul, and believe and trust that is enough.
Living this way requires courage and a willingness to step out of conventional wisdom to follow your own wisdom – I know –I’ve done it. I’ve dared to step outside ‘the norm’ to follow my heart and soul – and while it was scary at times, I have recieved more than I ever could have imagined. I look forward to taking this journey with you.
If you’d like to connect about speaking or working with your team, group or organization, or with you individually you can reach me at Christine@Arylo.com. You can also reach out to my assistant Sarah at Sarah@Arylo.com. We look forward to connecting!
