Tonya Whittle is a women's empowerment consultant. Through her own journey of seeking, Tonya has discovered the true source of women's power and knows how to call it back. There is an instinctual, powerful nature within women that has been conditioned out by modern and mainstream society, fitting us into boxes and preventing us from fulfilling our highest and true potential.
“During coaching I found my voice and really discovered that I can do anything. I believe in myself.”
— Victoria Cernjak
“Tonya has helped me in leaps and bounds. I once lived in fear of what the future would bring and now I’m excited for it.”
— Chrissy Corbett
“Nothing comes close to working with Tonya. She helped me find my own answers to the questions I had.”
— Tara Cornick
“Tonya challenges you to be the woman that you know you can be”
— Deirdre Andrews
An unfulfilling corporate career, followed by unhappier entrepreneurial journey, Tonya sight to understand why she had everything that should make her happy and yet felt empty, lost and unfulfilled, She began a deep, inner journey taking her from Amazon jungles to mountain peaks, sitting around fires with shamans, and in huts with sages, medicine men and women. She sought out peak-performance coaches, life and business strategists as she wanted to understand the affliction of the modern woman, striving to "make it" while still held to impossible demands and expectations. She walked on fire, jumping from great heights, and faced her every fear to awaken a deep ancient wisdom which led her home to herself. It’s there where she discovered the path of our own greatness lives inside of us all and we don’t need to go anywhere but in… but that our social and cultural conditioning prevents us following our own path and instead tells us who to be, how to be, what to want, especially for women, which has led to chronic burnout, exhaustion and in a perpetual state of survival, people pleasing, be everything to everyone, unable to say no. Tonya’s journey brought her back to her sociological roots, understanding how society creates us to be who we are through reward and punishments. Blending ancient wisdom with modern development, Tonya helps other women find their purpose, path and deep fullfilment, unlocking their personal power from a world that was never designed for women to succeed. Tonya's work is called "prolific" as it challenges stereotypes and asks us all to consider how our conditioning continues to hold women back
“Working with Tonya is life changing. I have a good life but I knew there was more and I wanted it! I wanted to release emotions and stories that I no longer needed. I felt something was missing and Tonya helped me go deep and see what was really getting in the way of my happiness. I had read lots of self help books and that started my journey but nothing comes close to working with Tonya. She helped me find my own answers to the questions I had. She uncovered things that I would never have picked up on myself.”
“I’ve worked with Tonya for a number of years. I’ve completed multiple programs and attended multiple retreats. To say I feel like a different person from where I began to where I am now doesn’t feel like enough. Tonya has helped me in leaps and bounds. I once lived in fear of what the future would bring and now I’m excited for it.”
“Perhaps the most important piece that I have learned from working with Tonya is to speak your truth. She is an incredible role model as she openly shares her successes, challenges and journey with participants which make the experience incredibly authentic. Through her programs I have learned to be true to myself, to find the pieces that best fit for me, but to also stand the course - to find the balance between flow and force. Sometimes we waiver and need to take the time for flow and play, and then there are times where we need to put in the work, continue down our own paths and discover more of our truths.”
