Embracing You!

TEACHING EMPATHIC CREATIVES AND ACHIEVERS to design their unique approach to work, play, and art—and connect to their divine source of creativity.

It’s time to stop performing someone else’s steps, and embrace your own—in a beautiful dance with the universe.

Get your hands on The Essential Ingredient to begin embracing you

For empathic achievers, creatives, and artists whose ultra-productive lifestyles have left them burned out and stressed out.

My dear friend,

I know exactly what it’s like to be a highly sensitive soul. You are high-performing, highly-creative person and still feel…

Burned out and constantly stressed—even if you think you “should” love your work and life.

Isolated and disconnected from spirit and loved ones because you think “I’m too busy” or “I’ve just gotta finish…” or “I don’t fit in.”

Picked on, for both the things you excel at, and the things you struggle with—no matter how kind or polite you are.

Emotionally exhausted, as your empathetic nature keeps you in “caretaker mode” 24/7.

Struggling with confidence, and potentially addictive behaviors as you try to keep up with yourself and others’ expectations.

(Almost) out of love with your art, because you can’t seem to live up to the standards you set for yourself and perfectionista is running the show!

This is probably the part where you think I’ll say:

“You just need to add these new habits, rituals, and routines to your already crazy-schedule…”

But I’m not here to give you another to-do list.

I’m here to guide you as you embrace and design your life, relationships, health, body, vision, success, and so much more—and be in tune and in step with the gorgeous dance of your extraordinary existence.

And even better? You don’t have to do it alone.

Find out what’s possible when you start co-creating your life’s choreography with the support of something greater than yourself.


I’m Gina Pero.

Since 2011, I’ve been weaving my lifelong experience of expression as a professional dancer and teacher with my skills as a Certified Master Life Coach to support creatives just like you as they move from other people’s plans, ideals, and “choreography” keeping them stuck — and embrace the most powerful, creative, unapologetic versions of themselves.

But wait—what does embracing you even mean?

It means treating your day-to-day experiences as a way to be more in tune with your art, and your heart.

It means developing beautiful routines in your daily life — from your creative process, to your commute, your mornings, and even your daily communications.

It means showing you how you create the space and design the steps (and even the music) that represent the way you want to walk, contribute, and be in the world.

And it’s helping you to do all of this with joy, ease and trust through connecting to something bigger, greater, more. To know that you are not alone in the magnificent manifestation of your life.


Because when you begin
to embrace your life…

You raise your
energy and confidence,

and experience more joy, freedom and abundance every day.

You’re more
present and connected

and can hear your divine messages, wise whispers and knowing nudges

You listen
more to yourself,

and choose people who love you—instead of letting your bullies run the show.

You (finally)
stop people-pleasing,

and set loving boundaries, that free you up to honor yourself and your body first.

You break
addictive cycles,

and transform the anxiety and stress keeping you stuck.

And you start
unconditionally loving
your art & yourself

because you’re no longer caught up in what other people think of it.


So the only question left is:

Are you ready to hit the music and learn the first step?


Here are a few ways to create and connect with me:


I’d love to direct your team or audience to embrace their life - both in and out of the workplace.


Hands-on mentorship to teach high performing creatives and emerging artists move with ease and joy to their next level of success, joy, and radiant health.


Ready to hit the music right now?
