Embodiment is the ability to “embody” that which we want to be (an inherently are). It’s the ability to know what is best for us and to actually make that choice. Often times people know what they “should” eat yet make very different lifestyle choices. So, embodiment in this area would be once your diet had actually shifted.

Through experiential practice you can create such a visceral felt sense that shifts become much easier to make because they move from being a thought to being an integrated experience from a multidimensional approach.

Interoception and experiential learning is a part of every session and every class I teach. Want to join in the Women’s Embodiment Course? Or do you prefer to start by working together one-to-one and want to schedule an initial session or complimentary consultation call? I’d be happy to work with you wherever you are on your journey.

Do you wonder who you are?


There is innate wisdom & knowing in us all. Our hearts can be a portal and having someone reflect & guide us can be the ultimate journey - the journey to knowing who you are, why you are here, and who you want to be. When we live from our hearts we can magnetize what we want in our lives.

Joy + happiness + gratitude are higher vibrating emotions. Meaning, when we are experiencing these emotions we are vibrating at a higher frequency. All emotions have their own frequency, and we can become patterned to tune into and experience a full range of frequencies. Shame and guilt are some of the most dense and low vibrating emotions there are and when we get stuck in those, it’s hard to be who we want to be.

So what do most of us do about that? We distract ourselves from feeling it because when we do actually let ourselves feel them it feels so bad. What if you were able to be aware of and change the vibration of your frequency? Together, we can raise your consciousness and raise your vibration so that more joy + happiness can be experienced.

Expand your Athletic Abilities & Performance.



Get shorter shallower slumps, expand your performance, release unconsciously held fears, and uplevel your ability.
