Remember who you are.

Meet Cara Bradley

Here's the "Official" Bio... Cara Bradley is a Menopause Performance Coach, entrepreneur and author. She is passionate about empowering high-performing women to thrive through menopause by optimizing their lifestyle habits.

For the past 40 years, Cara has been a dedicated practitioner and instructor of body-mind practices. She has enriched the lives of thousands through her teachings, while also coaching professional and college sports teams, CEOs, and Fortune 100 companies.

Cara, the author of "On The Verge: Wake Up, Show Up, and Shine," is the visionary Founder of the Verge Yoga Center and content creator for major wellness brands. In 2020, she was named among the "Top 12 Most Powerful Women in the Mindfulness Movement" by Mindful Magazine.

Here's the "Real" Bio... I was born Carolyn Marie Ferrara, the only daughter in an Italian-American family from the Coney Island section of Brooklyn. As a fiercely independent child, I insisted on doing everything myself. This attitude worked both for me and against me.

In early adulthood I made some hasty decisions including a college transfer, quitting a sweet position at an investment bank, and dropping out of an MBA program. I married in my twenties, changed my name to Cara in my thirties, and got a tattoo in my forties.

My fifties were blurry and somewhat sloppy. My rapidly changing body and mind took me off my game. In many ways, I lost my “spit and vinegar”. In short, menopause dragged me down. Fed up with feeling flat and blah, I changed my ways, woke up from the fog and got back on the horse.

Now 59, I’m looking back at a collection of wellness businesses (some failed, some sold), a harrowing book launch, the hustle and grind of the corporate speaking circuit.

The greatest ride of my life has been the ongoing privilege of being a wife and mother of two extraordinary adult daughters.

Having now traveled through more than a few dark nights, I step forward into a new chapter with a fiery new passion and purpose—empowering women to take charge of their menopause journey and to harness their unique power to shine at work and in life like never before.
