OVER 20 YEARS OF MINDFUL MOVEMENT
BORN WONDERFUL, LLC, ORIGINALLY KNOWN AS WONDER WOMEN UNITE, WAS BORN FROM THE INTENTION TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER, TO LIFT EACH OTHER UP, AND INSPIRE ONE ANOTHER TO LIVE OUR BEST LIFE.
Our founder, Erin DiMaggio, wanted to utilize her experience as a Yoga Teacher, Personal Fitness Trainer, Parent Educator and Spiritual Psychologist to be of service to her community.
In 2016, after many years of being a "stay-at-home-mom" she re-entered the "work-outside-the-home" arena by offering a free Yoga, Hiking, and Women's Circle event in her backyard for all women to attend. As Wonder Women Unite grew in popularity DC Comics caught wind of it and at first, not so politely demanded she take down her application for a trademark for the name and logo. Being that Erin was in the business of heart-centered sharing, she poured her heart out, letting them know how much the press would love to hear about them trying to shut down her backyard business. They came to an amicable agreement. Erin decided a name change would be in her best interest and then, as a result of taking on the patriarchy, she finally felt like a real Super Heroine! She threw off her Wonder Woman cape, spread her own wings, and in 2017, she re-launched her business and continued Doing Business AS: Born Wonderful®!
To date, we have hosted many mini-retreats, full weekend Born Wonderful Experiences, 90 minute workshops and many private Girl Scout's events for women and girls all over. Now we offer Born Wonderful® Branded Swag for you to wear and private gatherings by request. We blend the best modalities from positive psychology and motivational growth mindset theories, with modern day new age wisdom and playful movement, yoga, and strength training to assist you in remembering your innate born wonderful nature!

We will take care of all of the details for you! All you need to do is: gather your friends, tell them about the event, ask them for permission for us to contact them by email, commit to being wonderful by showing up and we will do the rest!
We can accommodate most but not all fitness levels. We will be doing various yoga postures that are suitable for most but not all people. If fitness might be an issue for your group, we recommend a Born Wonderful® Sacred Circle for your group which has limited movement, perfect for everyone.
