You're an EMBODIED WARRIOR


If you like these pieces, you'll love The Embodied Warrior.

As with everything, every piece of programming is intentional. 

From the strength days, to the rest days, to the flow days, to the warmup, cool downs, contemplations, monthly live calls...literally everything.

I believe how you do one thing most likely represents the relationship you have with all things.

Our Embodied Warrior program allows for connection to the body, while also becoming deeply aware of your relationship to self.
