Noelle McCarthy

500-hr Registered Yoga Teacher

I am a 500-hr Registered Yoga Teacher. I am married and a mother of three: a singleton girl and fraternal twin boys. I love the practice of Yoga because it allows us to connect to our body, mind, and spirit in a curious, nonjudgmental, non-striving, in-the-moment, on-purpose, real way. I am passionate about how Yoga helps to develop equanimity, and can shine a light on how the brain and body work with regard to trauma, PTSD, depression, eating disorders, and deregulation.

Kristin Kraemer

Registered Nurse, Be Body Positive Licensed Facilitator, Certified Holistic and Lifestyle Coach

Hello, I am Kristin Kraemer. I grew up in the Waconia area, moving here in 1987. I am married and my husband and I have two daughters. My husband and I have known each other almost our entire lives! The community has always been ‘home’ for me. I am a Registered Nurse, Be Body Positive Licensed Facilitator and a Certified Holistic and Lifestyle Coach.

My goal as a lifestyle and holistic health coach is to help individuals achieve their health goals through education, discussion, motivation, support, guidance and understanding with compassion. Understanding comes from lived experiences of my own with health challenges, depression, anxiety and body image. I will strive to meet you where you are at in your journey. Making lifestyle changes is not easy for many and without the support of others, it can be daunting. The great things about making lifestyle changes are the outcomes: confidence, knowledge, feeling better inside and out, and knowing you are doing the very best thing for your body and mind!

In my downtime you will find me with my family, dogs, doing Diamond Art, crafting, reading, knitting, out on the lake (open and ice), spending time with nature, or hanging out with friends.

I am here to help support you on your personal transformation journey!

Areas of Interest: self-care/self-love, body positivity, self image, women’s & adolescent/tween health, and mental health

Randy Young

Certified Peer Support Specialist

My name is Randy Young, my life is now ordered by faith, family, and friends, more to come on that. I have worked my entire professional career in the IT industry designing, writing, or leading teams all aligned with building enterprise software. I’m very happily married to Danielle for 25 years, with 2 amazing children. Paige is a sophomore in college and Carter is a sophomore in high school.

I really enjoy building things, that is probably why I do what I do in my career in IT. However, I really enjoy everything DIY, helping my friends and family with many projects. While I’m not doing that, I’m either in the woods hunting or on a frozen lake ice fishing.

While advancing through my career, more responsibilities resulted in more stress. Along with that, went a very aggressive social calendar that included a lot of partying and heavy drinking. This pace caught up with me on January 6th 2020, I went through a mental breakdown, did not get out of bed for a week. My priorities in life were out of order.
I now realize that chasing my own dreams of climbing the professional ladder does not mean a thing. I now realize that God was trying to tell me that helping others was the position on the team he built me for.

My priorities are back in alignment, all my time is spent by helping others in different ways. I’m going to use my life experience to help other men dealing with mental illness. I will be training in January to become a Certified Peer Support Specialist. I have started teaming with the Hive in Waconia starting a men’s group called the Speakeasy.


I’m also looking at moving away from IT and into starting my own handyman service providing pretty much everything DIY that you can think of. I have been doing this my entire life and have a lot of experience and passion for it.
