live an untamed + unconventional life with

no regrets!
Hey, rebel! I see you. You're wild and fierce...and wishing for more from life.

the adventure of your life starts today


If someone asked you what you would like LESS of in your life

what would you say?





Body shame?

Bad news lovers?



Negative juju?

Rather than subtracting things from your life, let’s try adding things.


I know you want to make the most of your wild and precious life.

Do you crave more...

  • Unshakeable confidence in your ability to smash your goals? 
  • Clarity in why you are here and what you're meant to be doing in the world?
  • Feeling proud of your life and how you're living it?
  • Positive mindset skills so you can get your inner mean girl to shut the hell up and let you get on with it? 
  • Energy so you don’t feel like a slug moving through cement every damn day?
  • Adventure in your life - every day?
  • Freedom… to live life on your terms? 

You want it all right?




Resources, courses and a killer support group to keep you motivated on your wild journey to a free life.

With a combination of science-backed research and meditative spiritual practices (kind of like if Buddhism and science had a love child) Freedom School™ has what you need to focus that fierce spirit of yours and help you get what you truly want out of life. 

Join me, Ana Verzone, a spiritual mindset coach for rebel women who want the most out of life without dulling the sparkle of their wild souls

I offer untamable womxn the tools they need to achieve everything they’ve ever wanted in life while honoring their adventurous, carefree and freedom-driven lives.

You ready?

You are undefinable in a world that just wants to put you in a box.

You want adventure and freedom… and most importantly you want to stick it to the man and live a life that feels authentic to YOU.

Bottom line?

I’m a freedom seeker.


I had a rough upbringing in a not-so-nice neighborhood. My parents did their best but it wasn’t an easy home to grow up in so I became independent and resilient really early in life. This is good for you because everything I learned on the way made me a better coach. 

I’ve lived many lives - I’ve been an international climbing guide, battled cancer (twice!), got married (twice!), dated wonderful and challenging people (more than twice!), experienced multiple types of trauma (haven’t we all?)...

I had my first psychedelic experience at 15 and have been exploring consciousness ever since, trying many avenues of altered states (breathwork, wilderness fasts, deep meditation, and more). I've worked as a midwife, become a mother, almost became a nun (twice! true story - but I could tell my growth edge was where my buttons got pushed in intimate relationships), worked as a massage therapist and yoga teacher... I’ve also traveled and worked/lived all over the world.

And all of it has helped me create evidence-based approaches to spiritual growth and expanding our consciousness.


my moto is

‘Free your mind, free your life’

I've spent my life studying - and practicing -  how.

I dove into academia and head-on into life in a fierce way, and I’ve developed a magic combination of spirituality and science to create a solid methodology for my clients.

Freedom. Adventure. Purpose.


I’ve always been a bit rebel and I’ve always been a bit spiritual and sometimes it can be hard to be both.

And then I thought - fuck it - I AM both.

I can party with the best of them under the stars in wild places. I’ve been known to toss f-bombs like a sailor. I’m human and can still lose my cool with my partner over stupid sh*t. I also meditate and do yoga.

I sometimes eat too much (but I balance it out with a green smoothie). I used to drink too much too - but figured that out (whew!).

I believe in science (I have a doctorate!) but I also believe in the power of our minds and what we can achieve when we really focus our energy. 

This life is a miracle. To be alive is fucking mindblowing. To be in this body on this planet at this time. 

I want people to make the most of it. 

I teach people how to go after life with gusto. How to pivot their lives away from the ordinary and fast track it to be extraordinary. 

Want to go an adventure?

Of course you do.


The adventure of your life

starts here

Define your own freedom. Seek unimaginable adventure. Follow YOUR path. You only have one magnificent life. What are you going to do with it? 

  • Are you feeling dissatisfied but you’re not sure why?
  • Are you basically going through the motions of life and not really experiencing it?
  • Do you crave adventure and feel a little bit like your life is like a boring conference you’re being forced to attend?
  • Do you love the idea of meditation and yoga but feel like you’re a bit too loud/naughty/sweary/boozy for that world?

I've seen thousands of rebel womxn struggling with inner conflict. Wanting to live an authentic life but still paying the bills/taking care of themselves/being a good partner/mother and friend. 

With over 25 years of deep dives into science and spiritual experience, I’ve narrowed it down to three main focus areas of ultra happiness and fulfillment.

Freedom. Adventure. Purpose.

With these three elements as your focal points, you can live the intrepid, wild and rebel life you crave without compromise.


Welcome to


This is a place for busy womxn who want to get their shit sorted quickly. It’s full of practical tools that work to help you finally start creating the life you were meant to live.

It has everything you need to get clear about what you want and the courage to go out and get it.

buckle up

I'm coming along for the ride


Here’s what Freedom School will do

for you...
  • Give you a deep dive into cognitive coaching and the engine of Buddhist psychology (and nope - you don't have to be a Buddhist to benefit from the mind science I teach)
  • Provide actionable tips to uplevel your mindfulness in practical ways 
  • Create a functional mind-body connection 
  • Give solutions to real life problems - if you’re fighting with your partner I’m not going to tell you to go meditate on it, I’ll give you a practical solution you can implement right away.
  • Give you peace of mind - I’m a Buddhist geek with too many degrees so you can definitely trust what I say 
  • Let you be you - if you love partying on a Saturday night and spending Sunday in a Netflix daze, I’m not going to judge you. I’ll walk next to you.

“After my first session with Ana I knew I had found someone who truly could help me create the life of my dreams. Working with Ana is absolutely EPIC experience. She has this magical power that will help you smash through whatever is holding you back + help you get you ah-freaking-mazing clarity on what you TRULY want.

It’s been a few weeks since I started working with her and I use the tools that she taught me to make inspired decisions  about my life + business daily. I’m on the road to creating a life packed full of adventure, creativity + FUN!! Thank you ANA!!”

How to create authentic relationships with your family, friend or lover that truly nourish BOTH of you.

You'll learn how to confidently step into the dating scene on YOUR terms.


Stop Buffering

How to stop using external things to make us feel better. Do you overdrink, overeat, overNetflix? This is for you, rebel overdoer. I get you.


Body Freedom

How to live in a body and give it the respect and attention it deserves. And  hormones? Oh yeah - manage them at any age, work with not against your cycles and embrace the beauty, fury and wonder of being a fierce female.


Mindful Self Compassion + Radical Self Care

How to take care of yourself so you can cultivate the courage to do hard shit in the world.

Detox your brain - clear out negative thought patterns and old stories about your past that no longer serve you.

Meditation + Spiritual Practices for Rebels

Not your zen-rock-garden-type of meditation course. This one is for rebels who have a hard time sitting still long enough or often enough for the old-school approach.


Letting Go

How to clear out what no longer serves you (stuff, emotions, thoughts, and yes, even people).


Mastering Emotional Wellness

Next level skills for how to manage your emotions so they don’t have control over you. How to deal with being in a funk, difficult people, challenging situations, anxiety and overwhelm.


Setting Epic Goals for the New Year

Resolutions are so boring. How to reflect on and learn from your past (so you don’t make the same mistakes), stop bad habits and build new ones, and set goals that will blow your own mind.


“Before I did Ana’s program I was in a funk. Not that life was bad,  I just felt personally stuck and needed some more skills, specifically her ”Jedi mind” skills.  Not only did I get out of my funk, I lost weight, improved my co-parenting relationship and my business income increased (no joke – abundance affirmation works!) all within 7 weeks…coincidence? Not really, just great a coach and program that helped create momentum for change and a willingness to take on living my BEST LIFE, out of the box. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!“

I’m so grateful I found her and she works from a pure place of passion and dedication.

“Ana has been my rock these past six months and exactly the person I was looking to have in my corner to grow my business. She has done the work and has so much experience with coaching and best business practices. She knows so many tips and tools that I had no clue about. Examples: Fiverr! Hello! Where has that service been all of my life! Virtual Assistant? Yes please, I’ll take two. It was really great to bounce ideas off her and for her to come back with so much immediate and useful insight, suggestions, and guidance.

Ana helped me do the thing that I have struggled most in life with: Clarity! Because getting clear about who I am, who I attract, and being able to articulate it all to others is step one to abundant success! Hands down, this has been worth the price of Ana’s admission!

Hire Ana, she’s worth it.”

Kelly Summersett


Our NO RISK guarantee


If after you’ve done the work for 30 days and you see no changes, I offer a full refund. You need to show you’ve actively participated: show that you’ve done the thought work assignments and worksheets for the month, attended at least one live call (or showed notes from actively listening to one), and engaged in the discussion group. Because if you do that, it will work. Guaranteed. If not, you get 100% of your money back - no problem.

so no excuses, right?
