"Midlife: when the universe grabs you by the shoulders and tells you, 'I'm not f*cking around, use the gifts you were given.'"

Brené Brown

Are you concerned about your health, or worried about how healthy you'll be as you age?


Six out of ten women (61%) in North America report having chronic health conditions that require monitoring, medical care, or medication. Even worse, many women believe that health naturally declines after the age of 40, 50, or 60.


If you’re like most women, fear about your changing physical appearance is just the beginning of aging anxiety. Many of us struggle with aging because we know it is often a season of loss: loss of independence, declining health, death of a spouse, our own death, isolation and loneliness, loss of identity, fear of worthlessness. 


  • Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by the aging process? 

  • Have you stopped investing in your wellness and well-being because you're so busy taking care of others?

  • Are you afraid of spending your old age dealing with chronic health issues?


There are easy things you can do to prevent chronic illness and health decline as you age. 

Hello There, Lovely Lady! 

I'm Dana Leipold, Yoga Teacher, Holistic Nutritionist, Wellness Coach, Wife, Mother


I founded Third Act Wellness to teach women over 45 how to reduce their stress, calm their minds, and take care of their bodies so they can age well and make their long-forgotten dreams come true. 

Your third act (and beyond) can be so much more than you think!

What my clients say...

Christy O.

Working with Dana helped me increase my awareness of how stress was affecting me. She provided a wonderfully gentle approach to wellness that made a huge difference in how I feel.

Carolina F.

After my MS diagnosis, I began working with Dana. By using the tools she taught me: meditation, yoga, and a healthy diet, I feel like my MS symptoms have all but vanished. I am super excited about maintaining these healthy habits that are absolutely working for me.

Denise P.

I was feeling very frustrated and stressed out due to a lot of changes going on in my life. Dana was very encouraging with gentle reminders about not being too hard on myself if I didn't meet the daily/weekly goals. I learned that I don't have to do it all, that I have choices, and if I only accomplish one thing that's definitely okay, versus beating myself up as a failure. I can always start over too.

Jill K.

Dana is an incredibly talented, natural coach. Her guidance challenged me to think differently about my wellness, that it doesn't have to be so complicated and that little things do add up. Her knowledge of yoga, meditation, and nutrition were so valuable and her willingness to support me was uplifting, positive, and fun.

It really is possible

You can shift your mindset about how you age, and set yourself up for better physical and mental health now and in the future...without a major lifestyle overhaul.

When you work with me, you will:

  • Feel and look better within two weeks (YES! It can happen that fast)
  • Reclaim your energy and ignite your passion for this phase of life (and beyond)
  • Maintain your wellness routine with ease well into your golden years
