About Me

I am Kris Deminick, a firecracker, a tomboy and a misfit, with a big heart. I love the outdoors, Yin Yoga, hosting dinner parties, my mini-dachshund Moose, solo car-karaoke, coffee, red wine, and dark chocolate. I am an adventurer, explorer and agent of change. And I am an electrically energetic, yet deeply soulful coach on a mission.

To help you ignite your spark, to live a life of experience, play, adventure, whimsy, and creativity.

I help the rebels, creatives, misfits, and non-conformists who feel bored, depleted, and stagnant by the trail paved for us, or once chosen but no longer loving. I work to reduce the fears and expectations that hold us back from stepping off this trail to fully express ourselves. I want to see you dare to own who you are, and then shout it from the rooftops (even that little bit of banshee deep inside)!

I know the panic of craving MORE but not quite knowing what or how. It comes from years living as a perfectionist, "doing" not "being", shackled to the "shoulds", and losing touch with your playful, creative Self. But I know you want to feel lighter, confident, free, and ALIVE. I bring my toolkit of mindset coaching, yin yoga, mindfulness and the framework of play, to help you develop self compassion, and confidence to let go of worry and return to joy. You’ll become friends with your inner rebel, loosen your grip on things you don't really want to do, and dare to push the limits!

I promise you, it’s not too late to take a leap and make a change.

"I came to Kris wanting to feel less weighed down by my to-do list. I had become stuck on how I was supposed to juggle it all as a business owner, wife, mother, and me! I didn’t know where to start or what to expect from coaching, but after just our first session I felt like I had someone on my side helping to clear the fog. Kris helped me to fully understand WHY it’s so important to care for myself first - for me, my family, my relationships and my business. She knew when to push, when to hold back, and held me accountable…she gave me exactly what I needed when I needed it. I now feel more present, calm and free, like I can handle anything. Kris is a star!"

So How Did I Get Here?

I know how it feels to stop and think “where did that part of me go?” To get caught up in “all hard work, no play” and with “fitting in” only to wind up feeling “left out”. To fight the internal battle about how you’re not measuring up to other people. To spend all your time stressing and worrying and moving further and further from yourself. The gears grind to a halt and you end up feeling stuck in the mud with a person you don’t quite feel is you. I was overwhelmed, disconnected, and thought self development was a woo-woo land of unicorns and sage sticks that held nothing for me. Boy was I wrong.

With a successful and promising career in digital advertising on the go, it was all work no play. So I took 18 months off at the age of 24 to indulge my wanderlust and travel the world. Truth be told, even then I was already feeling unsatisfied, burnt out and depleted by the thought of hustling my way up the corporate ladder, and deeply disconnected from my younger creative Self. While on my travels I picked up an unwelcome, and unlikely travel companion. A damaged relationship to food, and intensely destructive body image. This experience completely changed my perspective, and I returned without the gusto I once had for the advertising industry. Yet I shackled myself back in because it was "the right thing to do", "the only thing I'm good at", and "the only way I can earn a living" - right? But as a self confessed perfectionist it never felt “right” enough, I was never good enough, and was constantly terrified that I wasn't earning enough. I was in a complete state of lack and disconnection, both toward my career and my body.

Without really knowing why, I took a leap and enrolled in Pilates Instructor Training. "She broke free!" you're thinking? Not quite. I still held onto my digital career, because who would leave 6 years of achievement for a massive pay cut to teach Pilates classes? How irresponsible! Yes, fear continued to hold me back until I was given the opportunity once again to relocate, this time to live in Denmark for 18 months. I used this as an opportunity to unlock those shackles. I left my career in Australia and didn't take it with me. What I took was my teaching, and a burning desire to rediscover that spark I knew I had in me but had been lost through the act of living for expectations and ideals. And with all that mental energy returned to me, the unwavering support of my husband, a therapist, a wellness coach and a toolkit of books, podcasts, retreats and meditation - I found the key. Get your spark back. Then never let it go. I spent my time mastering my mindset. Learning to believe in myself. Loving my body again. Getting creative. Trusting, and truly owning the rhythm to which I wanted to live my life. Playing with the world. Redefining success. And I began to feel so alive. I now enjoy what I call a ‘bento-box’ career, wearing many hats as a Pilates + Yin Yoga instructor, copywriter, and Life Coach. Yes, it came with uncertainty, less security and less financial independence, but it also came with so much more. An Electrified Life. And that is what I want for all of you. To support you, cheer you on, and light your spark for all to see! Read more of my personal story in this blog post "The Path to Here".

"I felt like my coaching experience with Kris was like rock-climbing.
Sometimes you reach a point where you get stuck.
You can’t see the next foothold.
And you get tired.
Sometimes all you need is someone to tell you that there’s a foothold next to your knee. That you can reach it. That your legs are strong enough to push you up. To take a deep breath and reach. That there is a harness there, too. Sometimes you need a good belay partner. That’s what working with Kris felt like. Kris brought the space for me to find my line - pursuing my identity as a creative writer, the perspective to see what I couldn’t, suggestions for what footholds to try next, and an encouraging word and a safety net for when I got tired or afraid. And - sometimes - when you’re focused on the journey, you look down from the top, and surprise even yourself with how far you’ve come."
