Mind blowing Cranial Sacral Therapy, my newest obssession! 

    I started the first phase of Cranial Sacral Therapy training, August 13,  2016, and have been practicing ever change I get. The feedback so far in this short amount of time is truly astonishing. I start the next intensive in ten days and counting! 

Let me give you a little brief  explanation if this complex and profoundly healing modality. 

    I could not be more thrilled to be bringing this modality to world through my own unique expression. I will be keeping you updated on the happening of training, practicing, and experiencing.

Integrating The Chakra System into Daily Life

    The Book of Chakra Healing by Liz Simpson was my first introduction to the chakra system; her eloquent words describe it as such: “The chakras are metaphysical vortices of energy originating in the ancient Indian system of healing, which positions them in seven major centers down the body, controlling the flow of subtle energies. They symbolize the connection between the spiritual and the physical, and coincide with the body's endocrine system. When they are in balance, each of the seven major chakras helps a particular part of the body function perfectly. When unbalanced, dysfunctional, or “blocked,” a whole range of mental, emotional, and physiological conditions can manifest themselves.”

    After receiving this book and pursuing a self-study through the chakra system I was hooked. This was the first step in life long journey of deepening the understanding of who I am through the chakras. I then took it a step further by emerging myself in an eight week chakra balancing workshop. Through a guided experiential exploration we dove deeply into each chakra one week at a time. Through this process we discovered the connection between our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual state of being and how that shaped the manifestation of our outward experience of reality. This was one of the most profound and life changing workshops of my life. Following this I dove into a full 200-hour Spiritual Yoga Teacher Training at the Soul of Yoga in Encinitas to gain an even deeper understanding of how to integrate this profound awareness into my body, mind, soul daily. Even still, I was called to an even deeper level of understanding, as I enrolled in another 200-hour Gentle Yoga Training that focused even more on the subtle energy body systems. Ending with a short add-on training of Trauma Conscious Yoga through Connected Warriors that brought everything together for me.

    I am now offering a chakra assessment and balancing treatment. Through sound meditation, energy work, coaching and a rise in awareness we will create a personalized plan to integrate chakra alignment into your daily life. This treatment brings peace and joy back into the entire energetic system.
