Hi! Welcome to Rocking Life. Thank you for spending some time getting to know me.
My name is Taraleigh and most of the things I do revolve around my desire to see as much live music as I can. You too? I totally get it. Your obsessed with all things jammy, when you hear the word cheesecake it makes your heart sing a little, when you see someone driving next to you with a Grateful Dead sticker on their car you exchange smiles and how one the most exciting days of the year is when your favorite band announces their summer tour. Samesies!
Live music is what makes me tick which is why I work with people who are in love with life music and want to rock their minds, bodies and souls. As research that I haven’t done has shown, going to live music shows increases your life span.
With the amount of concerts I’ve been to and I’m guessing that you’ve been to, we’re pretty much going to live forever. If we’re going to live pretty much forever, we might as well feel our bests! This page is for people who are interested in getting high on live music AND a healthy lifestyle.
Because every single day is a gift and not just show day! I literally wrote the book about it. How to Rock Your Life: Maintain the Magic of Live Music in Your Everyday Experience is available HERE.
Because of my desire to maintain the magic of live music in my everyday experience, I have chosen to create and produce live music retreats with a healthy twist. My hubster and I run a retreat center in Vermont called This Wonderful Place where we will put on our own retreats and events as well as host others. With the training and schooling I have received I’m now skilled at using my unicorn magic to guide you to rock your most healthy life with my blog and online coaching programs.
Dancing my way through life (literally and figuratively as an award winning dancer in my school years, dance major at Arizona State University and professional dancer and tumbler for the NBA) I found herself happiest when dancing to live music. It was there that I let my freak flag fly and became inspired to become a catalyst of more wildness in the real world. To deepen my studies I attended, graduated and worked for Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I became a certified health and lifestyle coach. Quickly I realized that live music fans were my most favorite people to work with and after quite the journey I launched my Rock Your Life brand which includes my book How to Rock Your Life: Maintain the Magic of Live Music in Your Everyday Experience, coaching, leading retreats with musicians for their fans, workshops, speaking engagements and writing for publications such as the HuffPost and Relix.
What people are saying about me:
“I highly recommend being a part of Taraleigh’s tribe. Unparalleled fun, magic and playful breakthroughs.”
“I went from feeling like I was incapable of ever feeling at peace inside, to thinking that it was possible, but would probably take a really long time, to realizing I better make it happen immediately after watching a small bunch of people close to me die very young. When you have that fire under your ass, other people who have that same fire stick out to you. We might as well have our foreheads painted with some distinguishing mark. By the way, if you haven’t met her yet, Taraleigh has a huge sequined, sparkly mark on her forehead. Actually it’s probably a full blown headdress. You can’t miss her.
