The Dream Bigger Podcast

Mar 7, 2023

On today’s episode, I’m chatting with fitness coach, author and entrepreneur, Karena Dawn. Karena is the Co-Founder of well-known fitness brand, Tone It Up. Her journey starts with her past of what it was like growing up with a mother who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. Karena shares how she overcame her childhood trauma and dark periods of depression, anxiety and substance abuse through movement, mindfulness and spiritual empowerment. Karena talks through how her own self improvement led to the start of co-founding Tone-It-Up and founding The Big Silence Foundation, two nurturing communities that have helped millions of people. She touches on how the dark parts of her past helped foster the women she is able to show up as today. We also do a deep dive into tools to help with mindfulness such as meditation, therapy, cold plunges and more.
