Lisa Bailey Sullivan
Hi! I'm Lisa, the founder of Camp Atta Girl! I’m so excited about our camp in the Berkshires! I’m a mom, wife, recovering marketing exec, author, speaker... but mostly I'm a woman who wants to help other women find their voice, power, light and joy! I want to help you play big, embrace your true self, have fun in life and do whatever it is you are being called to do!
I do this through a combination of science and "woo-woo" — combining the science of happiness with wild and wonderful yoga dance movements through the chakras.
Why me? I've been there... I'm still there, traveling this road with you.
I was a corporate marketing exec. But suddenly, I was laid off and panic set in as I was the sole support for our family.
During that panic, I decided to do something totally out of my comfort zone and become trained in Let Your Yoga Dance. I realized that I was playing small and hiding. I had always been waiting for that "perfect" time when I was "thin" to play big. I cared more about what others thought than what was right for me. But, I discovered the true way to my happiness was for me to be me.
I continue to meet women who are going through the same "stuff" I am going through. I created Camp Atta Girl! because I believe every woman — no matter what age, what color, what profession, what size — deserves an atta girl for all she's done in life.
During the camp, you'll connect with other women. You'll be given proven tools to make you happier. We'll take you through all the chakras through dance and movement (that anybody can do!). All of this is with a deep focus on your strength, voice, power and self-love. In this world of chaos, it's a weekend just for you to breathe and feel grounded while tossing in some laughter and joy!
My hope is that you'll have a lot of fun, find your best self again and tap into your courage to make changes you want to make. Or just love what is.
Girl, stop playing small. It's time to play big!

Ellen Feig Gray
I’m Ellen! My greatest joy is to connect people of any age or life stage to their purpose, passions, and strengths and to help them create happier lives. As a certified positive psychology coach, I support clients in working towards positive change and reaching their highest aspirations. In my practice, I integrate evidence based tools and practices from science and the wisdom traditions.
I am also passionate about raising and educating the next generation of happy and resilient individuals through empathy and compassion. I founded Parent with Perspective to offer coaching, workshops and training for parents and educators to shift their focus to building their own toolbox of happiness practices, so they can model wellbeing for their children and students. I also co-authored a book about creating compassionate classes entitled Hacking School Culture.
To me, there’s nothing more important than leading by example, and embodying the character strengths we want to see in our future caretakers of this Earth — kindness, compassion, love, emotional intelligence, gratitude and wisdom, to name a few.
I believe that at our core, we know who we are and what makes us happy — we just need to learn to tune into our inner wisdom, listen, and follow our hearts. Happiness practices like enjoying time with people we love, expressing our gratitude, and celebrating what’s good in our life bring us closer to feeling the joy that already lives within us.
Of course there’s also music and dancing! (Did I mention that I'm a certified Let Your Yoga Dance instructor?) That’s why I love collaborating with Lisa through Camp Atta Girl! and I’m proud to be one of your Camp Counselors, along with my teacher, Megha!
