Most importantly, Aria is a survivor who thrives on challenge.
"I'm a walking wonder. I 'should have' died when I was 14, but somehow, I survived being hit by a Suburban speeding over 50mph. I lost two organs, and survived a broken femur, pelvis, knee, ribs and fractured skull. The upside of my accident is that my entire awareness of life and what is possible shifted. Most things didn't bother as much anymore, if at all. Even as I lay in the hospital room, hooked up to tubes, broken bones and all, I experienced more Joy than ever before. Over the years, my intuition blossomed and my inner voice grew stronger. Eventually, I found the tools which have been the basis of my gifts as a healer for 20 years: yoga, meditation, breath work, and energy practices."
Aria's social media feed is aimed at real people doing real life things...
"I don't walk around life, posing in bikinis on exotic islands, and most likely, neither do you. I'm a mom, yogi, environmentalist, writer, and new puppy owner. I love dancing, yoga, cooking, and being outdoors. If I can help inspire someone to be more present, joyful and satisfied with their life, then I have fulfilled my life mission."
