Our reproductive systems are an incredible and intricate network designed to work in perfect harmony. Our bodies mirror the interconnectedness of the natural world, in a continual dynamic relationship with our inner and outer environment. Learning the language your cycles is an empowering tool for gauging and supporting overall health. Until we are reconnected with our natural cycles, our primal intelligence and the deep intuition in our bodies we remain severed from our source of wisdom and power. The seasons of our animal bodies, the circle of death and rebirth, planting, harvesting and regeneration, are the sacred heartbeat of family and community and place. The longer we divorce reproductive bodies from this deep wisdom the longer we perpetuate suppression of the Feminine and our connection to nature. When we reclaim our bodies and honor the living wisdom inside us, we remember who we are and our interconnection with all living beings.

I am also a Therapeutic Yoga Instructor, RYT-300 Hr. and Body Literacy Coach and Fertility Awareness Practitioner. My passion for helping people reconnect with and find healing in their bodies is rooted in my own journey with health issues. The winding path that I am still traveling has taught me that “wholeness” is not predicated on any particular health status but an ongoing daily dialogue and co-creative process with the wisdom of our amazing and unique bodies. I love to help others facilitate this relationship with themselves. I support the exploration of the language of our physical beings and the learning that healing is not an end point but is ever-unfolding, often unexpected, coming home to ourselves. Mindfulness based practices help us to meet ourselves in each moment exactly where we are at which is where healing and transformation can take place.

I also offer one on one coaching for reconnecting and healing the relationship with body (a combination of talk, mindfulness based practices, breathing, somatic movement, guided meditation, writing, art.) I offer a variety of tools and practices customized to your needs and what feels resonant and supportive.
