“Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.”

– Nelson Mandela

I am able to provide a unique angle of what I teach. Because I am actively in the field of massage/bodywork and being a Doula, the workshops & retreats that are offered are like no other.

The workshops are offered as live, in person, non-fear based, interactive, hands on experiences.
