Embodiment Mentoring for Teachers,
Therapists, and Healers

Embodiment is a mindful health practice that uses movement awareness and gentle re-patterning as a tool for transformation and healing. I help people develop alternatives to patterns of stress and survival that manifest in the body.

Conscious embodiment is the container that offers you internal support for transforming limiting and painful patterns.

Embodiment relieves physical and emotional tension, helps regulate stress reactions and develops internal awareness and insight. 

Conscious embodiment helps everyone bear the difficulty of facing and transcending strain and trauma.

You can help your students and clients by living your own best life.

Embodiment will help you live in your deepest center while simultaneously connecting deeply with clients and students.  You will be able to connect without leaking energy, getting exhausted or getting entangled with your own reactions. It can regulate your nervous system so you have more calm alertness.

This aliveness and ground is also something you can share directly, or just through osmosis, with clients.

Everyone can become more deeply whole.

Consciously embodying movement and anatomy brings hidden parts of us out of the shadows building resilience and integration in our whole being.

It changes our way of moving and being.   It’s true that as we do this emotions can surface. Embodiment is a way knowing yourself  beyond the constant and changing flux of emotions and accompanying thoughts.

Here’s a past client example:

Kara is a therapist who was experiencing pain from long hours of sitting with herniated lumbar discs.She had the insight that she was hurting her posture through how her heart was affected by her patients stories. She literally let her heart fall – not just emotionally, but structurally, as she listened to difficult stories.  By consciously embodying her heart and its relationship to her spine, she avoided surgery and  stopped losing her own emotional center with difficult clients.

There are often unseen energetic issues that can be corrected before imbalance and unconsciousness take away from our wellbeing. Our work together is at the meeting place where the embodied meets the energetic-including in the movement patterns of our cells.
