To provide sessions and classes more equitably, I offer sliding scale, no-cost, and donation-based options for all sessions. I share a portion of session proceeds with community organizations.
Whether in community centers, schools, or private spaces, I share with a lens of body acceptance, options, and choice-making. I always hope classes will deepen participant mind-body connection, but sessions are not to be considered medical advice or a replacement for nutritional or medical counsel, psychotherapy, or physical therapy. I encourage attendees to commit to curiosity surrounding their own personal journey, respect others’ boundaries and journeys, and seek help and other resources when they encounter questions or difficulties beyond my scope of training.
I honor that I walk and work on the traditional and ancestral homelands of the Shoshone, Goshute, and Ute tribes.
