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

To me, embodied wellness is the ability to tune in at any moment to sense the ways in which we have strayed far from relative balance, and to have the wisdom to bring ourselves back. We are constantly impacted by the world around us as well as our own actions, but if we know ourselves deeply, we’re able to notice as soon imbalance shows up, and to then intentionally make new choices that apply the Ayurvedic principle of opposites to recover before dis-ease can manifest. What’s beautiful about this approach to wellness is that we do not hold ourselves to the unattainable standard of never being out of balance, and we trust ourselves to make the best choices out of self-love.

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

When overwhelmed or feeling out of balance, my top self-soothing practice is abhyanga, the Ayurvedic practice of applying oil to the body. Taking the time to warm the oil, set up my space with candles and music, adore every curve of my body, and then take a hot shower or bath, truly brings me home to myself and reminds me that all is well. A gentle stroll through nature — especially at sunrise — also works wonders for me!

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

My message would be a reminder that most of the pain that is perpetuated in the world is a result of past wounding and trauma. Whether it’s something as simple as someone being rude, or it’s as grand as a war, ultimately, it comes down to unprocessed grief in one form or another. If we could all just remember to not take things so personally, remembering to come back to compassion when we’re confronted, I believe there would be so much less suffering in the world.
