It's so easy to count the number of times you fail...try counting the number of times you get back up."-L. Hollins
My name is Lashonda Hollins, and I live in San Antonio,TX by way of Mississippi. I have lived in Texas for 8 years now. I am a graduate of both the University of Southern Mississippi and the University of Alabama (SMTTT and ROLL TIDE). My husband and I are high school sweet hearts and we have been together for 17 years and married for 10. I enjoy country music, writing, singing, dancing, shopping, and spending time with family and friends. I have been practicing as a licensed social worker since 2011, public speaking since 2019, and became a published author in 2020 (get your copies below). During the 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic I was able to live out a dream and obtained my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification as well as my Life Coaching Certification.
Since age 28 I have battled a significant amount of women's health issues including weight gain, uterine cysts, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), fibroids, a myomectomy, a miscarriage, an abdominal laparoscopy surgery to determine why my fallopian tubes were blocked, as well as infertility. As a result of these health issues I have experienced everything from anxiety, depression, a fear of being diagnosed with endometriosis, and a continuous struggle to conceive my first child. None of this has been easy.
In 2014 when I started this roller coaster ride, I was not prepared for the journey life was about to take me on. Not only did I not know my family history in regards to fertility or any other women's health issues, but my mom unexpectedly died when I was 22 years old. Therefore, I was forced to face all of this on my own.
As unfortunate as these experiences may be, they have inspired me to no longer remain silent about the women's health issues I have faced. These same experience led me to speaking as well as the practice of yoga. They both have changed my life and have provided me with more courage and more light than I ever could have imagined.
I started L. Hollins S.P.E.A.K.S in September of 2019 and it has now grown as I have grown. It has now been rebranded into L. Hollins Lifestyle and Wellness. I chose this business name because our wellbeing is important and we need to talk about and emphasize that more. Wellness is much more than the physical. Wellness includes your Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual Wellbeing...your mind, body, and soul.
In addition to being a motivational speaker I now I teach yoga, I'm launching a new Life Coaching Business, I am an author, and a podcaster. I wanted my platform to include all of the things I do for women and men on a daily basis. I have learned that I love to inspire and motivate others through listening, words, and movement. My new goal is to help individuals reach their full potential while continuing to spread positivity through education, aspiration, kindness, and strength.
It is my mission to help you see and be all that you are destined to be.
My mission is to reach as many women and men as possible through sharing my story and providing support through coaching, speaking, and the practice of yoga.
My goal is to motivate and inspire change within you. I'd like to support you as you knock down roadblocks and barriers in your way while helping you believe, see, and reach your full potential.
I believe it is imperative that we know who we are, what our goals are, and where we want to go in life. It is also important that we know ourselves FIRST and build a roadmap of how to get there. I'd love to help you get to that place.

Your Story Starts Here Journal
50 Positive Affirmations
After focusing on my own well-being for the last several years there was one task that continued to come up...gratitude. I’ve spent the last year focusing on gratitude, what it means, and how to intentionally implement acts of gratitude into my daily life. After figuring out what that looks like for me personally I wanted to create something everyone could use to start this same journey. The journey of being vigilant in improving your well-being and increasing your happiness. True gratitude can change not just the projection of your day but the projection of your life. Like with anything, it takes time, but the key is starting.
THERE IS GROWTH IN GRATITUDE! Use this 45-day journal to start your foundation and continue every 45-days there after
