it's a brand new day

Start sharing your gifts with the world


I'm Eric Kolesar, Founder of Higher Living Now. Guiding people to self-empowerment through yoga, coaching and adventure is my passion. With a balanced mind and body, you tap into your most authentic self and are more likely to share your gifts with the world. Understanding, compassion and mindfulness are the cornerstones of my beliefs and life work. Today is the day to take steps to achieve your goals. Using a variety of techniques firmly grounded in neuroscience, we create a framework for you to start living at a higher vibration.

"Whether you think you can, or think you can't--you're right."

I'm incredibly excited to be hosting four retreats in 2019 in beautiful Costa Rica. From SUP yoga and meditation, to working with horses and sea turtle conservation, your ideal retreat awaits. I hope you'll join me on one of these unforgettable adventures.



Yoga has changed my life and shaped me in many ways. It has been a twenty year journey filled with adventure and practice. Guiding people through a practice is a great honor for me. Yoga has the power to quietly transform our lives if we simply show up. 


The word "Yoga" comes from a Sanskrit word that means "to join" or "to yoke". Yoga is a practical aid, not a religion. It's an ancient art based on a harmonizing system of development for the body, mind and spirit. The continued practice of yoga will lead you to a sense of peace and well-being, and also a feeling of being at one with your environment. Contact me if you would like to set up a personal or group yoga session.  

Workshops and retreats provide a great avenue to learn and explore. When we have an experience with a  subject mater we are more likely to adapt it in our daily living.  Workshops provide immediate feedback and add depth through the community of like minded people. Check out the workshop page if you are interested in hosting a workshop or retreat. 


Each of us has the wisdom and power to make our life what we want it to be. Coaching is a partnership that aids you to strengthen your own inner wisdom and make powerful choices to become your most authentic self. Choice affects every aspect of our life whether we are aware of it or not. When we make choices that are more aligned with who we are, we vibrate at a higher level. Empower yourself to start higher living now! Contact me to see if coaching is a fit for you or your company. My science-based coaching methodology will:


  • Guide you to discover what is most important to you in your life

  • Establish well defined goals

  • Help you design a road map to achieve your goals

  • Work with you to eliminate obstacles that are limiting you from moving forward

  • Create a partnership for continued success
