As with everything...


Everything I program at AlphaFemme 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. At AlphaFemme, I believe how you do one thing is representative of your relationship to that thing and most likely representative of the relationship to yourself.  Our Embodied Warrior program allows for connection to the body, while also becoming deeply aware of your relationship to self.
