Helping you navigate the path toward your best health.
Last week I spent time in the high desert completing my second Psoas Application Course with Liz Koch. Not only is Liz my colleague, mentor, and friend, she is brilliant. I met Liz in NYC at a workshop where she morphed my perspective of body mind ecology twelve years ago. Since then, I’ve been honored to have studied and collaborated with her Core Awareness process. Liz embodies her work in a way that has profoundly influenced my approach to body as process and somatics as language. I am transformed each time I study with her. She continues to influence the shape how I design my company from a living systems perspective.
From my heart, thank you, Liz.

Hygge (hoo-gah) is a Danish word that’s hard to translate but easy to feel. Defined as “a quality of coziness and comfort.” It’s about being kind to yourself with small, delightful things like warm drinks and candlelight. At its core, hygge is about self-care.
Setting boundaries is an empowering practice. We learn what is accepted and not accepted and what specific verbal and physical cues are.
