Embodied healing for beings who chest bind - 12 week program

Whether you are new to binding or have been for years or if you are pre or post top surgery AND you would like to know how to best care and support your body, this program is especially for you.

You don't have to figure this out on your own. Regardless of where you are on your journey, everyone needs community.

You would like to physically feel better in your body, to feel less bodily aches and pains.

You want to experience less anxiety and stress which contributes to more bodily aches and pain....which makes you feel more anxiety and stress (and the cycle continues!) You want to discover a TRUSTING relationship with a body that you feel as not been reliable or very trustworthy ... yet you desire to feel PEACE and at one in your body.

somatic movement for beings who chest bind and/or have had top surgery

Do you have shoulder, back or chest pain? Trouble breathing? Shortness of breath? Feel uncomfortable coughing or sneezing?

The word somatic means “of or relating to the living body”. Somatic movement is performed slowly and consciously, with complete internal focus and attention.

I will guide you through exercises that you can continue to do in the safety and comfort of your home. All that you need is a mat or comfortable flooring with enough space to lie down.

Supporting clients who bind and/or had top surgery: for Intentional Wellness providers

Are you looking for ways to support beings who chest bind and/or have had top surgery? If you have, like myself, experienced the frustration of folx who have difficulty breathing (especially when working out or doing functional physical activities), and are complaining of back, chest and shoulder pain - this workshop is for you.

This ONLINE workshop is also for wellness providers who work with beings who are disconnected from their body and would benefit from an internal experience of movement while consciously learning to explore and improve bodily movement patterns.

If you would like to intentionally hold space for and guide your clients and patients to focus on the internal experience of movement rather than the end result, this workshop is for you.
