See you next week!! 🙂



I see you mamas working hard to support your kids. I can feel you walking the edge of sticking to boundaries and letting things go. 

It is exhausting. So…. How about you take a little time to yourself? How about you block out 3 hours to explore your needs and nurture your desires? Give yourself the reset you need to move into the summer months feeling really good.

You deserve to be seen mama. Let yourself be seen. Join me and a circle of other amazing women June 27 from 12-3pm PST as we move, ground, and reflect our way to our inner voice, our soul’s song.
