Holly has an amazing gift as a shaman and has assisted me in more than one way. Whether it was a soul retrieval, shamanic journey or personal healing session, Holly's skill as a shaman has been integral for assisting me along my spiritual journey, healing, and personal growth. I especially love her shamanic journeying classes which have taught me how access messages by connecting into my inner world and spirit guides.
DANIELLE HESS 'Little Owl'
Holly Baade is more than a coach and yoga instructor, she is a shaman that is spirit taught, and heart led. She has brought me back to an original point of potential with a soul return last year.
I cannot stress how her compassion, humor, and intelligence bridges the ancient world and that of today's modern world of ordinary living. If you are searching for a gateway into your own deep heart and soul, and would benefit from a well rounded approach to coaching and healing, then see Holly.
Even her yoga classes at the Joyful Warrior will contain a seed of whatever you need to walk your journey more mindfully and completely.

Joyful Warrior is a doorway to happiness, joy and freedom through unconditional love.
If you looked at my life right before I began working with Holly on the shamanic path and life coaching you actually think it was pretty great. I'd overcome some huge demons and on paper everything was in its place.
But inside....inside was a different story. I was like a prisoner in my own mind locked in by fear and a fragmented soul. Picking at the scabs of past traumas and old ideas. When the familiar pain was no longer as comfortable an unfamiliar joy I went to see Holly.
The work we did and do has brought me back to life. Through surprisingly painless sessions I was set free, complete and whole again. There aren't adequate words to describe how I feel and how I AM. My worst days now are better than the best days before I started on this path through Joyful Warrior. The power of unconditional love is limitless. And Joyful Warrior is a wonderful, loving and SAFE place to begin to re access what is always available to you.
Holly is a guiding light that leads you back to yourself, back to your heart, where love is all that is real.
Being Holly...take flaxseed, kale, blue berries and banana...blend it up and drizzle with krill oil...drink it down...hike Glory...run first tracks on NE Ridge on a Mikey Franco custom snowboard to Route 22, hitchhike to the Black Rock desert, grab a drum, some fur and feathers, a couple LED lights, and resonate with the kaleidoscope of the wonderment and creativity of mankind...take the plunge...fear not the treasure chest of beauty and potential that lies in your box called Pandora.
