Holy Pause

Within the first week of the Quarantine I came across many wellness blogs and Instagram captions imploring me to view this time as a period of healing for Mother Earth, or a time when the denizens of Mother Earth, all of us, should do some healing of our own. Even with a thoroughly established mindfulness practice and fresh out of an intensive 6-month yoga teacher training, I was rocked by the news with all its unbelievable numbers and had some difficulty finding my footing. A peace came to me eventually and thankfully sooner rather than later, but I am grateful I let myself be anxious and afraid for others and myself first.

Discernment As Self Care

Collectively, in the last few years, it finally dawned on us that absolutely flooring it until we achieve every last one of our goals and resting only after success is not practicable. Stopping for breaks to care for ourselves is vital to a well rounded and fulfilling life, and the popularization of this concept birthed the self-care movement.

More often than not it is the cause of the symptoms our clients would like to address. From stress-related acne to poor posture to tension headaches, so much of what we treat in our services is a direct result of the stressful nature of modern life.

No Place Like Your Squad for the Holidays

No place like your squad for the holidays

Year-round, women have to juggle a lot: job, house, kids, dinner, remembering to buy toilet paper, you get the idea. There is constant pressure from all sides telling us what our lives should look like, and the holiday season cranks that tiny inner critic’s voice to eleven. It’s easy to lose your footing with an additional workload of playing Santa for your household or close circle of friends. Staying grounded is always hard for me, but gets harder with the added responsibilities of gifting, potlucks, and my social calendar every December.
