Do you notice you have a body when you are not in pain? So much of the time we treat our bodies as if they are simply a vessel to carry around our brains.

Join us to go behind the scenes of the wellness professional’s hustle for building clientele, fearless marketing, and utilizing the power to say no, or yes, when it comes to self-care and socialization.


  • Why Yoga is about more than the perfect pose
  • What it means to be connected to your body
  • How to balance saying yes with saying no
