Ashlee Colben

Certified HeartBreath™ Coach

Meet Ashlee, the heart behind Sacred Wildheart. Born and raised in Calgary, AB. After suffering from burnout and anxiety, Ashlee turned to different modalities to help regulate her nervous systems, such as meditation and Reiki, later becoming a Reiki Master Practitioner herself. She then followed her heart nudge to become a HeartBreath™ Coach, not knowing how much connecting to her heart and breath would change her life.

Ashlee wants to inspire & empower others to connect to their sacred hearts and step into their wellness. Moving you from a place of anxiety into confidence and power. Her sessions include the extra healing energy of Reiki, Oracle card reading and beautifully curated playlists from her heart. Ashlee finds inspiration in the mountains, which she frequents often to ground, connect to her heart, and play with her two dogs.

Ashlee is based in Calgary & Sylvan Lake, Alberta and offers sessions online.

Leanne Macdonald

Certified HeartBreath™ Coach
Hi! I’m Leanne Macdonald, a certified HeartBreath™ Coach based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and I am so happy to be able to bring this beautiful and profound healing modality to the East Coast.
I discovered Heartbreath™ breathwork in 2020 out of a combination of “I’m up for anything”, and “actively looking for deeper healing”.  That curiosity led to profound and positive changes in my emotional health.
With a background in Counselling, Life Coaching and as an EFT Practitioner, I have added Breathwork to complete my Holistic Healing Collective. My motto is ‘You are your own healer, I am simply your guide’, as my belief is we have what we need within us to heal. What we need is someone to walk along side us while we do so.
I offer in-person sessions in my home studio, or on-line via Zoom worldwide. Please reach out if you want to know more about it, you can book a session or a discovery call via my website.
I look forward to being your guide to your own healing.

Kelsie Chernenko

Certified HeartBreath™ Coach

Kelsie is a mom of 2 young kids, wife, coffee lover, storyteller, Motherhood Coach & HeartBreath FacilitatorTM.

Despite always wanting to be a mom, after having her first child, Kelsie was blind-sided by the difficult realities of motherhood and the identity crisis that ensued. She felt lost, overwhelmed, and disconnected.

Determined to get back in the driver’s seat of her life, she set out on a path of self-discovery that involved her hitting rock bottom, finding her purpose, and starting a coaching business.

Now, as a certified Life Coach and HeartBreath™ Coach, she uses a variety of holistic modalities & techniques to help new moms navigate the transition to motherhood – and all the challenges that come with it – so they can step into their new identity with power & purpose, and start loving life again.
