Transform the way you eat one habit at a time!
I'm so glad you are here! I have always enjoyed physical activity, as well as studying the human body and learning how movement is so essential to well-being. With over a decade of professional experience working in the health and fitness industry from health clubs to corporate wellness, as well as teaching Somatic Movement Education, I believe in taking a holistic approach to health and wellness that includes the mind, body, and spirit.
Being a wife and a mother, I understand that prioritizing and developing positive habits around family, work, healthy eating and exercise can be challenging, which led me to embark on a service that offers somatic movement education, fitness and nutrition coaching in the comfort of your own home.
I am on a mission to empower people to move more efficiently and effectively, without pain, and to gain a greater self-awareness that leads to success in all areas of life.
If you have tried everything and cannot get relief or healing, or are actively seeking ways to empower yourself through education and application. I look forward to connecting with you.
I strive to offer valuable health resources and education tools for an active, long, healthy life. I look forward to connect you with your goals of making lasting positive change toward your vitality.
Less is more. Learn how to simplify your life and prioritize things that are most important to you by focusing on changing one habit at a time. I can help by providing the tools for creating new behaviours that will contribute to your success, as well as the accountability and motivation you need to make it a part of your lifestyle.

The body responds to stress, anxiety and fear by becoming hypervigilant. When stress, anxiety and fear is prolonged, the body becomes extremely tense and oversensitive to its surroundings which leads to discomfort and pain. Somatic Movement Education addresses the body's need to feel safe and brings it into a state of balance and harmony using the sensory motor feedback loop of the somatic nervous system to release, lengthen and completely relax tight muscles. Learning how to relax tight muscles allows the mind to feel safe, relaxed and calm. When the body is relaxed the mind is relaxed and vice versa.
Sleep is not only effective for the physical body, but it also helps maintain cognitive skills, such as improving your memory, attention span, and the ability to regulate emotions. Doing somatic movement before bed for as little as 15 minutes per day can improve sleep by teaching your brain to release and relax muscle tension that has accumulated throughout the day. To relax is to shift into the Parasympathetic Nervous System mode, that encourages rest, digest, and repair, which in turn results in an improvement in the duration and quality of sleep.
By turning your attention inward and mindfully sensing and feeling movement, you gain a greater sense of mastery to recognize your strength and optimal potential for positive change. Somatic movement allows you to be brought back into a safe, comfortable and pleasant experience of yourself, because you learn who you are and what you are capable of through movement. Somatic movement is a liberating practice that leads you to be comfortable in your own skin and fully engaging in life.

"I learned a lot about myself---I learned to not bury things, to sense and feel my body more and not just take it for granted. I feel so much freer. I have found strength in myself that I didn't realize I had, the camaraderie was fun and the best experience would be coming home to myself." - Cheryl M.
"I think Somatics gives me a feeling of purpose and ability with respect to my body. It puts me in touch with how my body is working and how it feels on the inside. After starting Somatics, I felt like I could do other things in my life to improve my life . . . It had a cascade effect on my life." - Sarah D.
