My Story

As a young child I made sense of the world through my body

Born of yogi’s, dance, movement and play in nature was encouraged. But soon enough, the conformity and social conditioning pressed upon me pulled me out of that innocent primordial embodiment and caged me in.

As a young woman I felt disconnected from my body and wanted to break free of the superficial labels outlookers had pinned on me.

I set out in search of reconnection and personal reinvention – seeking truths and my place in the world. I became a nomad as I explored the world and the deep inner workings of my soul.

Mexico, Sweden, Argentina, San Francisco, Brazil, and India are all places I’ve called home. Along the way I studied Art, Yoga, Qigong, and Expressive Movement Therapy which ultimately led me to my profession as a Physiotherapist.

I explored the relationship between body and breath, as well as body and nature. Each place I ventured taught me new lessons and gave me the freedom to evolve as a woman, a human, and a creature of this earth.

In one instance, during a transcendental dance meditation, I was able to consciously move my breath inside of my body and I pushed the limits to one breath short of death.

In another instance I  stepped into an androgenous vibration by shaving my head and changing my clothes.

In yet another location, a moment of stillness in nature allowed me to commune with a glorious wild animal. An eagle tricked me and carefully touched my head while I was mesmerized by the dance it was doing together with an another eagle in the heavens above.

This experience taught me that connection to body and connection to nature are the same path.

All that I seek can be found within

At this point, I had ventured far in search of a guru mentor, but  I discovered myself and the wisdom within instead.

Reconnecting to nature and body was a rewilding journey; for in the end I returned to that same wildly natural embodiment I had lost as a child.

I’ve lived in many places around the world, but my expeditions taught me that my heart is truly my home and a well from which to draw wisdom, no matter the trajectory.

Wielding my life experience I guide my fellow explorers and fearless seekers in navigating their own path of connection to body and nature in order to experience their own rewilding.

I learned that connecting to Body and connecting to Nature are the same path.
