The name Grounded In Color is very personal to me, I remember the first time I saw colors on my spiritual journey during my first chakra meditation and I also remember the several times I was the only brown skin in a healing space. It is not often I find a safe space that does not dilute traditions and capitalize on bountiful cultures through appropriation. My intentions are to create a safe space for adults by offering varying practices and resources that break internalized colonized states and uphold our ancestral traditions by centering the body like many of our ancestors have done before. My intentions for adults and children are to create a safe space where feelings are validated and tools are learned to regulate one's own nervous systems.

 Through a trauma informed lens, I acknowledge not all bodies are alike, not all bodies have the same experiences and not all bodies will move the same way. As a survivor of assault, I lean heavy on trauma informed. While many trauma survivors will benefit from yoga and breath work, the intense focus on sensations can also be dysregulating to to the nervous system. Access to safe, compassionate spaces, where we can be seen and understood is close to my heart. I am here to help guide you through your own intuitive choices through movement and breath. To connect in truth, in the power of our stories, move and breathe at our own paces and celebrate one another. I am so happy you are here. You are not alone.  

 

I invite you to join me on this journey of reclamation and creativity. Are you ready to discover what that looks like for you?
