“A true vocation calls us out beyond ourselves; breaks our heart in the process and then humbles, simplifies and enlightens us about the hidden, core nature of the work that enticed us in the first place.” David Whyte

More About Bonnie

Raised on a Michigan farm with six brothers, Bonnie enjoyed a playful childhood surrounded by animals, homegrown food, and peaceful green forests. At a young age, dreams of travel and the ocean drew her to California where she dove into a fast-paced corporate career. Though exciting and rewarding in many ways, Bonnie felt a strong call towards more purposeful work, service and holistic living.

This led to a series of powerful experiences, including a transformational RYT-200 yoga teacher training in Guatemala in 2011, which opened within her a desire to share a path of transformation with others.

Bonnie’s passions led her to a role as director of the Mystical Yoga Farm in Guatemala, a sustainable permaculture and yoga retreat community. Following her RYT-500 certification, she began facilitating yoga teacher trainings and immersive retreats. Bonnie was a founding member of Kula Collective where she worked as operations director, facilitator and served as a member of the board of directors until February 2017. She then ran operations and facilitator development for School Yoga Institute, while co-owning the company until September 2019. 

Bonnie is a creative business consultant, transformational retreat coordinator, and trained birthing doula. She weaves a path of transformation for individuals seeking spiritual, physical, and mental well-being. Bonnie is passionate about supporting global students to build community, social justice education, environmental awareness education, working with LGBTQ youth, growing food, and spending time with family.

Bonnie lives and works in the mountains of Salt Lake City, Utah with her fiancé Annie and their energetic pup, Rumi.
