I have spent most of life witnessing the beauty and gifts of nature, enjoying an abundance of vitality with gratitude and pleasure. I have also spent much of life moving with ease through my body as a dancer, mother, athlete, physical trainer, and healthcare professional. However, there was a period of time when I lost my way. I was led into the trap of doing “what is expected” and “giving 110%” of my effort. The mainstream narrative almost broke me. Living someone else’s dream and performing in a perpetual state of action is unsustainable and exhausting.
But Mother Nature has a way leading us back to what is sustainable, if we listen. My multidimensional healing journey has given me the gift of re-membering. Discovering the divine connection between nature and human movement was an awakening for me. Now I am eager to share with you how nature, movement, and connection are foundational for your health abundance journey. Through my personal journey, contemplation, knowledge, wisdom, practice, and integration I have created the Earth-Body Way: a new paradigm for fitness & wellness.
After 25 years of honing my innate gifts and curating a wealth of knowledge in the fields of fitness, physical medicine, and wellness, I am pleased to serve you on your embodied divine health journey. The heart of my work, Elemental Movement Medicine, involves the restoration of organic movement patterns, structural re-alignment, and nervous system regulation. I teach within the context an infrastructure that follows seasonal rhythms and honors cycles of nature. The modalities & technologies that I incorporate into therapeutic sessions are diverse and varied. Your experience may include exercise prescription, exercise program design, breathing practices, somatic re- integration, intuitive frequency attunement, energy medicine, myofascial release, and/or nervous system regulation.
My practice has evolved over time to be uniquely mine with a robust assortment of tools to support your unique needs. Regenerative physiotherapy doesn’t exactly fit inside ‘the box’ of traditional physical medicine, rehabilitation, physical therapy, or personal training. However, I am happy to meet you wherever you are at, providing my services as an adjunct to these conventional offerings.
Physical movement is only one aspect of the holistic picture of health. Often, it is a portal into the discovery that we are part of a multi-dimensional reality that also includes our emotional, mental, and spiritual health in the setting of social wellness. For example, emotion is energy in motion. We often forget (and we weren’t taught) that we need to move our thoughts and emotions in addition to moving our physical bodies. When we do this in safe community aligned with nature-based ceremony consciousness, we bring ourselves into to the full experience of health. This discovery transformed the course of my own healing.
To support your holistic path of health and healing, I facilitate bimonthly Cosmic Twister Circles on the new and full moons. They are designed to encourage safely structured personal contemplation in community. Your personal reflections aligned with Gaia-Galactic consciousness and community weave a story that become a fabric for a new expression of humanity. In virtual ceremony (through the temple of ZOOM), we may witness others, process emotions, and transform our limiting thoughts. Unresolved chronic pain is often a sign (or symptom) of an emotional barrier, limiting belief, or area of soul dissonance. You may think of them as a messages from your Higher Self, seeking your engagement and often wanting completion or dissolution of the past situation or old story. This is the wonderous gift of these Gaia-Galactic gatherings. We are not simply physical bodies. Exploring beyond our physical boundaries opens us to the understanding that we are multi-dimensional beings and in coherence with Natural Law. This is the Earth-Body Way.
It’s time to bring a new paradigm to the world of physical fitness and deliver a NEW multidimensional model of holistic and intrinsic health. This is the subject of my forthcoming book, “Bodies of the Earth: Bringing joy and balance back to your fitness program with the Earth-Body Way”. My journey from fitness enthusiast, to fitness competitor, to fitness trainer, to physiotherapist, has given me a substantial amount of experience in knowing the physical body. My self-healing journey after abusing my body to the point of injury and collapse has led to my personal journey of unwinding from chronic pain and exhaustion. It has brought me into a much more comprehensive and holistic experience of being a truly healthy and whole human.
Now, I bring you ALL that I have learned to facilitate your transformation into the unique and brilliant multidimensional Earth-Body that you’re meant to be. It brings me complete and utter joy to share my wisdom, experience, and artful passion for wholeness with the humans who inhabit this beautiful planet Earth. Enjoy!
“Regenerative practices are necessary because we have become a species that is depleted and disconnected from ourselves, as well as from the earth and other living creatures. A balanced system is diverse, cyclical, and ultimately self-sustaining. My clients are blossoming into a greater version of themselves; moving with joy, ease, and vitality. You can too!” – Dr. Nic
