About Me


Itzel Hayward, Founder of Attuned Living 

Hi friend,

Thanks for visiting this page. I wrote it so that you can learn a little more about me and my work.

I am a yoga teacher, a radical self-love coach, a mindful communication trainer, and a fierce and compassionate advocate for love.

After serving as a public policy lawyer for 13 years, I left my legal career and founded Attuned Living, a mindfulness and wellness organization working at the intersection of love and social justice.

My unique work is based on the teachings of yoga, mindfulness, and compassionate communication.

For people longing to love themselves more, I offer individual and group coaching on awakening radical self-love through my newest monthly membership program: AWAKEN.

For people who are longing to create a more just and loving society, I—together with my friend and mentor NVC Trainer Kathy Simon—teach how to use compassionate communication to advocate for racial justice through our series: Beyond the Book Group: How to be An Effective Ally and Advocate for Racial Justice.

I'm also available for speaking engagements and am regularly invited to share my talk "Responding to Racism: A Spiritual Perspective" with yoga and other spiritual practitioners all over the world. Click here to watch me deliver that talk as well as other talks at the intersection of social justice and spiritual practices that I've offered.

I'd love to hear from you, so don't hesitate to message me or text me anytime.

I look forward to working with you.
