Grow, Birth, Fly!
I've been holding the space for people to find strength and magic within themselves for years as a yoga instructor, meditation coach, reiki healer, and aerial arts instructor. But perhaps the most crucial time for a person to look within and find that strength is during the transformational process of giving birth. As a doula, I will provide emotional support, resources and referrals, a variety of comfort measures, and a sounding board before, during, and after your birth so that you can advocate for yourself and own your birth experience. If you aren't familiar with birth doulas, DONA International's position paper is a great resource for learning what doulas are, and why they can play a crucial role on your birth support team.
Prenatal Aerial-Supported Yoga
I've adapted the practice of aerial yoga to safely benefit a person in any stage of pregnancy. The aerial yoga hammock provides support for hatha vinyasa style yoga poses and flows, conditioning and strengthening for every part of the body, and restorative shapes.
Meditation is hard! If you've struggled to begin a practice, you know how true that is, but what you may not know is that personal guidance and support can make all the difference! Private meditation coaching includes guided meditations, silent meditation with the support of your coach, an opportunity to get feedback on the experience, and other tips, tricks, and resources to help you tap into this rich and rewarding practice. The ability to quiet and guide your thoughts, focus on your breathing, and visualize are powerful tools throughout pregnancy, labor, birth, and the postpartum period.
This powerful healing modality guides life force energy (chi, qi, prana, reiki, etc.) into the client via the palms of the hands of the practitioner. It allows powerful relaxation and acceptance through this direct transfusion of non-judgmental love, allowing for profound healing. There are no contra-indications for reiki. It is safe and beneficial for pregnant, birthing, and postpartum people.
The Heartbreak Blueprint
Are you struggling to move forward after a difficult change or loss, such as a birth that didn't go according to plan, the breakup of a long term romantic relationship, losing a job, or moving to a new city? Let this time be an opportunity for growth, instead of a painful inevitability. Using all of the above healing modalities, aerial work, and the tarot, the Heartbreak Blueprint will take you from pain and confusion toward clarity and joy over the course of three months of intensive inner work. Imagine moving through your day feeling connected to yourself and others, and open to joy and healing. You can do it! I can help.
