It all starts with a glimmer… a simple spark.. something from within crying out, compelling us to Emerge.

To reach out, to grow, to expand.. to go for it… to just begin. Emergence is the call to action, then we bring on the brave. Face the fears and the follies, and keep going… reaching.. emerging. It’s a process. A journey.

Soon we build momentum and become amazed by what unfolds — and comes to Life — in our wake.

Intuitive Beauty Coach, Lisa S. McKnight

As a Cosmetologist, she saw a need for so much more. Watch as she shares how her work evolved to redefine beauty, incorporating Ayurveda, tantra, yoga and vedic astrology as an intuitive Beauty Coach.

What I remember the most from my childhood is that I was always looking for the beauty in everything.  As a teenager, I loved playing with makeup, hair, and fashion.  I decided to study Cosmetology.  I loved working with people and helping to bring out their natural beauty. Then, my clients started to ask me for a different kind of advice.  They wanted to know what I was eating and my beauty secrets.  Well, my biggest secret at that time was youth!  Anyhow, I realized I was not able to answer those questions in a way that felt holistic to me. I was becoming disillusioned with the beauty industry’s focus on outward beauty and all the chemicals in the products.  Not only that, but I started to realize just how much we are defined by beauty for good or ill,  people begin telling us how we look at a very young age, and this often becomes how we identify with our own looks.  Around this time Ayurveda came into my life and I knew it held all the secrets I was longing to find.  This set me on a 20 + years path that has led me deep into Ayurveda, Vedic Astrology, Kundalini Yoga, Tantra, and Tarot.  My Mission is to help women reconnect to their Innate Beauty Wisdom, wisdom we are born with and knew before we started hearing others tell us how we look.  Through the use of all the support tools I now have access to, I show women how to design beautiful magical lives! I also make small batch, handcrafted, skincare products and do custom formulations for clients.  My practice is currently home based where I meet most of my clients online.
