Embodied Healing for Women
Encouraging women in their deepest embodiment and in cultivating an unconditional experience of self-love.
Effectively blending yoga, movement, meditation, mindfulness, and natural health and wellness, Embodied Coaching sessions are a unique avenue towards holistic healing. Compassionately meeting women where they are at, Alison draws from her wealth of personal and professional experience in these realms to create a life-honoring and individualized session for clients. Based on the premise that when we are in our bodies, even for the challenging moments, we are able to tap into that inner resource, that inner strength and respond from a powerful, clear, and embodied place. Our bodies are imprinted by all of our life experiences, patterns, emotions, and are the most powerful gateway towards uncovering our authentic and radiant selves. With gentle and steady support the possibilities are endless.
Radical and Soulful Self-Care:
A tremendous piece of my work is in the realm of what I call, Radical and Soulful Self-Care. As women, we are naturally caregivers, putting everyone else’s needs ahead of our own. I learned many years ago that that way of living is not sustainable and cuts one off from our life force. It actually inhibits our ability to give to others when we are not taking care of ourselves. As a single mom for the past 7 years, I have had to get creative and unwavering in my self-care and know that when I am tended to by myself, I am a more caring, nurturing and patient mom.
Radical and Soulful Self-Care doesn’t mean taking spa days or vacations regularly. One does not need to have extensive resources in order to engage in this level of self-care. It is about tending to ourselves at a core level, our souls, through simple practices and rituals. We are tapping into our innate bodily wisdom and our hearts stirrings on a soul level. It means feeding ourselves through our senses and finding true nourishment in our everyday choices.
These are radical acts on your own behalf.

Embodied Support for Women Unwinding from Traumatic Life Experiences:
My philosophy in working with women to unwind trauma from the body, nervous system, and mind:
~You have to feel it, to heal it: this leaves plenty of room for interpretation and absolutely does not mean that we need to recapitulate every traumatizing experience that has occurred. This means that we need to allow our full range of emotions to surface, acknowledge, honor, and release.
~Trauma takes time and patience to sequence through your body and the various emotions.
~Compassion for self along each phase is essential.
~The body holds the key to our unraveling, unfolding, and empowerment. We must continuously refine our ability to listen to what our bodies are saying and honor that inner voice of need.
~It takes work, consistent practice, determination, and an unwavering belief in self to embody and empower.
~Regression is natural. The subconscious patterns and beliefs need to be re-patterned at a deep and sustainable way.
~ We must embody life – embody ourselves – all aspects of ourselves to grow, heal, and become fully alive.
