Embodiment work

I offer one-on-one sessions and small group workshops to help folks become more embodied. This is an open practice for people who want to come home to themselves and feel (good in) their body. This work is particularly beneficial for people who are dissociated or holding trauma in their bodies, however I also work with other folks trying to access different parts of themselves they feel disconnected to – intimacy, overly-anxious, too much in their heads, etc.

Sessions are tailored to each individual’s needs and desires. I incorporate yoga, guided meditation, visualizations, breath work and somatic exercises, as well as journaling or art-making prompts. I always work from a trauma-informed place and use different techniques depending on what we are working on together. My goal is to create a practice with you that feels safe, grounding and freeing. I will also provide you with the tools to enable you to do this work on your own, outside of our sessions.

This work is available in Los Angeles and Idyllwild. Please reach out if you have any questions.

Private Trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness meditation sessions

I offer one-on-one trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness sessions specifically to help bring movement and sensation back and to slowly unwind trauma being held in the body. For many people who experience trauma, it can feel unsafe to be in the body. We will work at your pace to slowly and safely resolve whatever issues you are dealing with, whether it be dissociation, having an over-charged nervous system, feeling frozen, numb or holding in certain parts of the body, and other difficulties arising from trauma. Each session will be adapted to your needs . I do not ask for you to disclose your trauma, we only work from the body. I am happy to answer any and all questions you may have about this work. Please reach out if you would like more information, or book a session here.

I also have online guided meditations for those interested in teaching trauma-informed yoga available at InnerBeatYoga.com. For a 25% discount for Inner Beat Yoga’s 30-hour Trauma-informed Yoga Teacher training, simply click on the 30-HR course link and use special code: OPTIMIZE25
