The support and guidance that I offer through Sacred Awakenings is founded in over two decades of study in the healing arts as well as in my personal journey towards wellness and inner peace. Through yoga, therapeutic massage, reiki, developmental movement therapies, childbirth education, doula services, birth advocacy and sound healing my practice brings together a unique blend of experience in the healing arts. My specialties include maternity massage, wellness care and yoga for all stages of life.
My yoga certification was achieved through Radiant Health Yoga and I am registered through The Yoga Alliance. I also have further training in developmental movement therapies through The HANDLE Institute and Brain Gym. My Olympia yoga classes provide an opportunity to create a union between body and breath that brings peace and contentment to the mind and spirit. Sound acutonics and aromatherapy accompany classes, creating a holistic experience. Weekly classes, monthly workshops, on site yoga & individual sessions available.
My labor support training was received from Penny Simkin at The Seattle Midwifery school and I am a certified doula through PALS. I am committed to honoring a woman’s sacred transition into motherhood, offering my presence through the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual changes she may experience. I offer support for families from their prenatal period, through their labor/birth and into their postpartum transition. Forty-four families were brought to fruition over the last nine years of my doula services.
I am a graduate of Port Townsend School of Massage and have specialized training with Carole Osborne-Sheets in pregnancy, labor and postpartum massage. Sacred touch allows us to be present in our bodies and enables us to cultivate a sense of our breath and spirit. My massage practice helps clients to reach higher states of relaxation and wellness. As I listen with my hands and heart, I connect to my intuitive self while holding the clients’ goals in mind to implement an effective treatment. I provide a sanctuary for the senses, incorporating aromatherapy and sound acutonics during my massage sessions.
Through my commitment to care giving, I forge my relationships based on trust and unconditional love. Bodywork and movement helps us to reconnect with our soul’s truth and empower self-healing as we journey through all life’s sacred awakenings. I continue to engage in educational opportunities to further my experience in the healthcare field. This unique synthesis of the healing arts allows me to offer a holistic experience whether you’re interested in an ongoing yoga practice, pregnancy support, a sacred concert or an individual massage session. Namaste.
