Mel has truly changed my life in just 6 weeks. I've gained independence, confidence, and an understanding of what I truly needed in life. She taught us to let go of what society and social media tells us we should be doing, and guided me into figuring out what I need and want for me and me only. I'm so grateful for her and her program!

For about a decade, I moved through life feeling deeply disconnected and disassociated from my body
and insanely unaware of my self, healing power due to years of degrading bullying, learned shame of my body, and eventually, a spiritual crisis.
I spent my days rejecting my feelings and not holding any space for my own heart, neglecting myself and placing all my worth in my ability to pour ALL of me into others. I allowed my past, fears, and inner turmoil to dominate the way I was in relationship with myself, my body and the world. I sabotaged friendships, relationships, and connections and retreated into a shell and suppressed my pain until I imploded.
But in 2007, after a frightening wake up call (contemplating suicide), I began my journey from dwelling almost 100% in my mind and intellect to diving deep into a juicy relationship with my body. And as a result of this revolutionary choice, my sensual self and body were awakened.
I became deeply in tune with myself and my energy and discovered a whole new way of being in relationship with myself and with others. I gained a new perspective about my ability to transform my own life and access my healing potential. I came head to head with the divinity within and truly found a home and safe place within my body through deep, embodied self study, Yoga, and intuitive/sensual movement.
I began tapping into my innate wisdom, self-healing ability and expression of my feminine energy.
Through embodied self study, sensual/Intuitive Movement and Yoga I illuminated the unchecked disconnection with my physical (and sensual) body.
In this process, I birthed a new narrative and reality that unleashed my self healing power.
I found pleasure, joy and freedom in a fuller expression of myself and my unique energy, in front of myself and in front of the world.
I built trust in my own rhythm, while allowing myself to be seen and heard without fear, guilt, shame or judgement.
In 2017, I created and began facilitating Sacred Feminine Yoga, a sacred space for women to indulge in sensual movement to awaken the goddess within. Just as I had done on my own journey, the beautiful women who joined released shame, fear, guilt, and judgment around embracing themselves, their bodies, their femininity and sensuality. I even took it on a nationwide tour in 2019!
As profound as this offering was, as many testimonials as I compiled from women about their soul churning transformations, I realized that while we were prioritizing a reconnection with sensuality and feminine energy, the deeper enduring connection that was being repaired and nurtured, was a return to the Body; the deepening of self healing through movement. It hit me that, this is the deep connection that gives birth to everything else.
From there, it became my mission to create a sacred container for this return to remind women that:
The wisdom, answers, clarity, guidance and truth you desire are lying dormant in your body just waiting for you to conjure and awaken them. The body communicates information to you before your mind can even formulate a thought about an experience. Your body holds on to and creates a memory for everything you go through in your lifetime. Just as it has the ability to hold on and lock in, it has the miraculous ability to unblock, shed, release and cultivate healing in the process.
Your body is yearning to be in relationship with you. It wants you to sink into your sensual nature. It wants you to move it slowly, with intention and for the purpose of inviting flow, pleasure, softening and opening. No agenda, just the desire to feel and sense, deeply. To clear, heal and reconnect.
Hence, the birth of Return To Body. A three month sacred container with the blueprint to creating and cultivating what I found for myself on this journey. Where building a sacred relationship with your body and movement, birth a deep transformation and healing of conditioned disconnection and deep seeded wounds. Where you are held, seen and nurtured so you can rediscover beautiful layers of alchemy, vulnerability and soulful connection with yourself.
Your self healing power is accessible in the unique movement of your body. Accessible in your hands, your breath and your willingness to tap into and become fluent in your own sensual and feminine energy; without shame, fear, guilt or judgement.
Although movement is at the center, here are supplementary modalities that will be included in our work together

The Mentorship was worth every single penny. I’m so proud of myself for doing it. I see this as the first step toward putting my peace of mind as a top priority, I feel vastly different in my day to day life. And I’ve even had my manager comment on my increased focus and dedication (not to mention that Mel taught me how to be a literal creator of my own reality, which has blown my mind in how much it’s done for me)

Honestly, for me, this has been a really liberating and informative space that I felt akin to. You made me acknowledge my authentic self, my inner badassery, unforgiving sensuality and strength in my femininity. And you broke thing down so eloquently so that even a total newbie can understand and relate. You are empowered and educated my spirit and soul!
