CYCLICAL LIVING EDUCATOR

MIND BODY WELLNESS

BREATHWORK SPECIALIST

margs-1884.jpg

I AM A DEDICATED STUDENT OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE WELL.

I CAME TO THIS WORK BECAUSE, FOR MANY YEARS, I WASN'T THAT.

I spent my childhood allergy ridden with many rounds of strep throat, nose bleeds and a tendency towards worrying about everything I couldn't control. 

When I was a teenager, I was hospitalized multiple times with strange illnesses and never seemed to recover fully. Those years were full of antibiotics.

At 16, I was diagnosed with celiac disease and candida overgrowth.

At 19, I experienced sexual trauma, immense shame and aftermath within the judicial system.


PTSD, depression and body dissociating followed.

At 23, two different surgeries. More medications.

Between 23 and 28, my anxiety, elimination diets, people pleasing, autoimmune flares, fear of being out of control and depression rolled in waves. I also sustained a pretty serious concussion that led to short term memory loss and issues with word recall.

At 29, I underwent an invasive surgery on my cervix to remove precancerous cells.

 

I received a PCOS diagnosis the next Spring.

 

It was then that I decided to take a different approach to my healing. I knew there had to be something I was missing.

At 30, I had found a good balance between exercise, meditation, journalling, cyclical living, supplements, ditching binge drinking, taking good care of my liver, unpacking my traumas with somatic therapies like breathwork, swapping out household products for non-toxic ones, etc.

And at 32, I dedicated an entire year to practices that helped me regulate my nervous system, eliminate mold and parasites, balance my blood sugars and establish new beliefs around wellness and what it means to heal.

 

I share all of this openly so you can see that, just like you, I've experienced my fair share of health "stuff".

 

And while it sometimes felt overwhelming, I came to so many life-changing teachings and practices, not in spite of, but BECAUSE of these experiences.

 

I came to study and train as a meditation facilitator because I was having panic attacks and didn't want to medicate my anxiety.

 

I came to study and train as a breathwork specialist because I struggled with breathing normally post covid and was experiencing daily chest pain. Learning how to consciously control my breath has been game-changing.

 

I came to study food and supplementation because I needed to learn how to take care of myself in the face of food sensitivities and autoimmune reactions. That passion led me to work as an online wellness coach for 8 years and later, as a certified supplement advisor.

 

I came to study and teach cyclical living and women's hormone health because I felt let down by the lack of education we receive around our physiology and biorhythms as women.

I share this all with you so that you know where I'm coming from when I offer classes, courses, journals, workshops, etc.

 

I feel most passionate about helping women get out of their heads and into their bodies so they can live better, fuller lives. I feel that our greatest healing as women comes, not from fancy elixirs (I do love those), but from simple daily rituals that inform our body She is safe, she is nourished, she can relax.

 

My work reflects that. I hope it can serve you.

Always in your corner,
M

1:1 SOMATIC RELEASE BREATHWORK SESSIONS

Your body has an amazing ability to hold onto traumas (any event that overwhelms the nervous system) in the fascia tissue until it's safe enough to process. For many of us, though, we live in a state of chronic stress and have never learned somatic release practices to help move that unhelpful energy up and out. So it settles in our bodies and causes dis-ease in the form of IBS, migraines, arthritis, etc. Sonic Neural Breathwork is a trauma-informed release style that helps your body shut down the thinking mind and turn on the "healing mind", or superconscious. It is a powerful practice that can lead to rapid transformation and healing in every area of your life. Sessions are 2hrs over zoom and require some set up.
