What does 'Embodied Wellness' look like + mean to you? 

Embodied wellness means we are aligned with our body's needs and in a flow state that allows us to intuitively eat nourishing foods, practice uplifting rituals and move our body in a way that is heart-opening and invigorating. It means we have tremendous amounts of self love. It also means we don't look outside of ourselves for answers, because only we can know the unique needs of our body. When we live from this place of embodied wellness, surrendering control and trusting ourselves, our ailments and diseases tend to fall away, and life becomes more fluid.

When feeling overwhelmed or out of balance, what tools/rituals do you employ to bring yourself back to center? 

When overwhelmed or out of balance, the two main things that bring me back to myself are meditation and acupuncture. However, I try to keep myself from getting to that place of overwhelm by practicing Vedic meditation twice daily, receiving regular acupuncture treatments, taking Chinese herbal medicine, practicing yoga, going for nature walks and hiking in the Colorado mountains. I also love to light candles and palo santo to create a calming environment. I practice breathwork, eat nourishing meals and call my family and friends to feel connected. And most importantly I laugh a lot with my partner. Laughter is the best medicine :)

If you had a microphone and the whole world was listening, what would your message be? 

Learn to meditate, love yourself no matter what, relax, be present and enjoy the ride.
