We all desire to live a happy, joyful and full life.   My passion is to guide & support others to find what balance means to them and to mentor them on a healthy journey  with life & food.  As a Health Coach, I provide ongoing support and inspiration, as we set goals together, creating sustainable changes that improve your health and happiness.  As a Yoga Teacher and body worker , I work with groups and individuals to move and feel their body.

I believe we all need to slow down  in order to connect to what our body is telling us and our heart desires (plus it feels good!). I am a Type-A, driven, never slowing down kinda woman.  I left a Corporate job thought was running me into the ground and I quickly realized when I started my own businesss that it was me that needed to change.   I have spent the past two decades  slowing down and aligning with my inner wisdom, hearing my body  and following my heart.  I have overcome major illnesses, stress, lost weight, banished hot flashes and feel great.  I want to coach you to align with your desires and make the changes you want to make but have  hard time getting there by yourself.

I believe we all want to be happy and healthy  - now is the time!

What People are saying about Cara:
I have been practicing for over 20 years it is a rare treasure to find a teacher like Cara. Cara brings depth and understanding of the body and spirit to her yoga teaching. She is mindful of her students alignment and brings high intentions to the practice. I have participated in her retreats delightful! Tara Riley
Thank you for being you and the way you help us both in yoga and metal attitudes. You have spoken a lot about how to learn to love the person who creates the greatest anxiety when you deal with him.For me that person is my dad, who for many reasons made me very upset when he called or emailed due to past garbage. Your teachings have helped me approach interactions with him in a different way because I control how I let others make me feel.  Now I read his emails, send a reply and feel ok about it.  He is a music fan and last night I called him to let him know about the last opera for the season and invited him for dinner this Friday.  You have given me my father back through you’re the words you speak and the actions you take with others. name withheld
A truly remarkable healer, Cara Zaruba Butler exudes wellness and joy, peace and optimism.  Cara’s healing hands bring me relief from painful muscle tension and release a positive energy I sometimes forget I have.  A massage with Cara fills me with instant sunshine and brings me to a state of well-being.  She is extremely knowledgeable about all areas of wellness and the healing of mind, body, and spirit.  My favorite present to myself is a deep tissue massage with this gifted healer and amazing woman.  Lynn F.
