    Lisa Havlik
    Lisa’s Satori journey began 12 years ago when she entered her first yoga class. There was an immediate spark, but it hadn’t yet been defined. The flame of awakening had been ignited, but it was a slow burn during her fast paced, high-stress, corporate lifestyle in public relations in New York City. While this experience was full and inspiring, a large question mark seemed to be looming. What am I really doing here? What is my passion in life? Is this the life I am meant to be living? A leap of faith swept up her big city life, and dropped her off in Winter Park, CO, in the fall of 2009. After about two years of letting the dust settle, Lisa was serendipitously introduced to Destination Satori. That’s when things really started to take off. Now a successful entrepreneur and co-owner of Via Vitae, a yoga lifestyle, event and retreat company, Lisa defines work as fun and a means to develop her passions. And she hasn’t looked back!

    “The coaching program taught me to understand and trust my intuition, and gave me clarity and permission to follow my dreams. It is an amazing thing to be able to ride the waves of the universe! This shift is possible for everyone. We can shed our old beliefs and shift our perceptions to see the world for the great beautiful place that it is. We don’t have to move across the country, quit our jobs, or make a huge change in our physical world to make this happen. There are more subtle shifts that can take place. And I want to share with you the tools to write your own Satori story!”

    Lisa Smith
    Lisa has always held an interest in helping people. She started her own journey of self-discovery and healing while studying psychology and then working with patients for over eight years as a counselor.  The old saying “healer heal thyself” held very true when Lisa’s life turned upside down in 2001. She was in two car accidents within six months, leading to multiple surgeries and years of various struggles.  After her own experience with acupuncture and herbal medicine she realized that was her calling and committed to the healing art of oriental medicine.  When Lisa started her acupuncture practice in Evergreen over five years ago and met Carol, she knew Satori was a natural complement to the work she was doing.  Lisa believes that everyone’s challenges are equally important, and deserve unique attention and respect. As a Satori Lifestyle Coach and acupuncturist, Lisa provides a safe, non-judgmental environment that supports the patient’s inner healing and growth. Her goal is for individuals to be cared for, listened to, and educated.Lisa and her family love to spend time outdoors. She believes in the power of connecting to spirit and feels most connected when in nature.She also enjoys Crossfit, meditation, yoga and is trained to give diksha blessings. Her hope as a life coach is to inspire a better quality of life and well-being though balance and the integration of mind, body, spirit.

    I have spent years in the counseling field and have had many years of counseling and trauma work myself.  Nothing was as effective and long lasting as the Satori Lifestyle Coaching program.  It is empowering and enlightening and leaves you feeling so excited about life!  I have been able to manifest things in my life that I was told were not possible.  I am honored to be able to share this with others and never get tired of seeing how people’s lives positively change for good.

  • Kristi Kohnke

    The driving question at the forefront of Kristi’s mind has always been, “How may I serve?”. She majored in psychology and political science, hoping to find a path to service. Life took a different turn and she married and started raising a wonderful family. As her kiddos grew and were in school full time the question of service started popping up more frequently. She focused more on volunteering and running a thriving consulting firm with her husband. Still the question felt unanswered. Then she found Satori. While going through the lifestyle coaching program she reconnected to her true self and found the absolute peace she had always desired as well as her path to service. As a Certified Satori Lifestyle Coach and Yoga Instructor, she is honored to be able to share this program with others and help them find their own path to this amazing awakening. Kristi teaches Satori Yoga at Studio B in Evergreen CO and is available for private coaching sessions. Check out her website at

    Satori has truly awakened me to a completely balanced life full of love and perfect harmony. I can close my eyes at night and reflect on my inner peace, my inner strength, and feeling the peace of inner joy that Satori has brought into my life. My wish is to use all of my energies, to continue to develop myself; to expand my heart out to others; and to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. Nothing can dim the light that shines within. I invite you to allow me to share the discovery of the amazing Satori Lifestyle; A Journey to Self Discovery.”
