About the work

Sacred Body is an invitation home for the soul. By empowering the innate wisdom and healing capacity of the physical body through somatic practices and spiritual inquiry, clients deepen and develop their access to sensuality, self-expression, and self-trust, restoring vitality, resolving trauma, and enlivening relationships.

The physical body and its multifaceted intelligence are the focus of each session, and are tended to through a combination of sensing, moving, sounding, cleansing and nourishing practices, and sometimes touch. Sessions aim to support a client-led inquiry into unmet needs and long-held desires in order to find safe, sustainable, and deeply personal ways to rekindle desire and heal both physical and energetic pain.

Sacred Body is rooted in the fundamental principles of yoga, Tantra, and Ayurveda, which all state that anything in life can be medicinal or toxic depending on how we relate to it. Through turning our inner eye to our wounds and challenges rather than blinding ourselves, each one of us can experience deep peace, joy, intimacy and freedom as we are.

Through the course of the work, clients identify for themselves not only what they deeply desire out of life, but the patterns and beliefs that have kept them from ASKING FOR and RECEIVING these desires. In other words, what transpires is a deep reprogramming of inherited beliefs and behaviors around self-worth, deservability, autonomy, and voice. Programs may involve Ayurvedic food and cleansing protocols, somatic processing and expressive arts practices, or a combination of gross and subtle body exercises (yoga, bodywork, pelvic floor work) to restore a felt sense of balance and strength.

This work is for you if you are seeking trauma resolution related to sex, sexuality, pregnancy, postpartum, intimacy, addiction and co-dependence. Ayurvedic coaching and bodywork is also available for pelvic pain, menstrual or fertility challenges, chronic infections, and digestive issues.

About me 

I have always known intuitively that the body is sacred, that healing is a necessary part (maybe even the point) of being human, and that nature is our teacher. What I didn't know for a long time was my intrinsic worth.

I've always had a big appetite and big emotions and a strong level of desire, but I never had anyone tell me that that was GOOD! Instead, my bigness, especially my sensitivity, was treated as a problem, which led me to spend decades of my life in a constant struggle between what I deeply wanted and what I thought others expected. Making others happy made me feel safe, and eventually became my source of self worth.

But in spite of how hard I tried to be ‘good,’ I just couldn't get past the debilitating fear I was never going to be enough. At age 15 I started restricting my calories; meticulously measuring everything I put into my mouth. After a few years of absolute control over my food (and volcanic fights with my family and friends, not to mention hair loss, and menstrual issues), I began to binge and purge. Eating was the only way to quell the crippling anxiety, and vomiting was "the only way" to stay in control. This pattern stayed with me for almost a decade, but it led me to yoga, to Ayurveda, and to the 12 Steps, which anchored me for the decade to come.
