Hello, Pilates lovers,
It’s another fabulous healing mama!
I’m so thrilled to introduce you to my dear friend Dawn. She is a kick n’ and half and I think you’re going to love her, too.
In case you missed last weeks’ post, here’s what I’m up to:
For the next few weeks, I will be highlighting some amazing mamas who have made it their mission in life to help other mamas.
Each woman will be sharing a bit about their life, and the passion behind their work, plus a few tips that may be of help to you!
Enjoy! And comment below with any questions– Dawn will be sure to answer asap.
The Pilates Mama
What is your official title?
Body-Centered Coach and Self-Transformation Catalyst for Moms
What are your magical healing powers?
My magical healing power is to see the greatest version of the conscious and spiritual moms with whom I work as I help them tune into their physical bodies, heal emotional pain, and embrace the essence of who they truly are (but just may not be able to see…yet). I work effectively with them through utilizing my intuition, personal experiences, training in body-centered psychotherapy and coaching, mindset shifting, and energetic techniques so that they can shift patterns they’re sick and tired of repeating (and don’t want to pass down to their children). As my amazing clients begin to work with me, I help them notice or tune into their physical body, which allows us to tap into some unconscious beliefs or emotions they still carry, so that they can start to heal past trauma and current issues affecting their lives today. During this process, we are able bring their unconscious emotional and familial patterns into consciousness, and I offer them the tools needed to break patterns as they connect to their intuition, gain confidence, and create the happy and fulfilling lives they desire (and SO much more!).
Tell us about your home team.
Oh, my little team at home… I have a very supportive and hard-working husband of 10 years, who is always on my side when I am making big shifts personally or professionally. He truly loves me unconditionally and supports me in all areas of my life. I have an almost 9-year old daughter who is so kind, loving, thoughtful, creative, and spiritual. She’s strong and confident as well and we have a beautiful connection. I have a 6.5-year old son, who is creative and intellectually gifted beyond words. He is also inquisitive (I have to Google many of his thought provoking questions!) and super sensitive. He’s an interesting combo in that he has a very blunt side to him as well. In fact, you might hear him saying things like, “Your breath smells like rotten tomatoes and popcorn!” That’s a direct quote! And I love every inch of him. Then there’s my sweet little surprise 3 year old daughter (who was more of a surprise to my husband than me, since I completely manifested her into our lives) who is fearless, active, and makes my heart skip a beat on a daily basis. Each of my children have taught me new things about myself, and have really “forced” me to become a better woman, partner, and mother. It ain’t all unicorns and rainbows, but it’s the life I love and wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Besides your work, what else are you passionate about?
Besides ending sex-trafficking and the enslavement of children as sex slaves, child abuse, child pornography, and any degradation of children, I am also passionate about helping moms stop the intergenerational dysfunctional patterns that have been passed down for years and years. I want to help women truly see their own divine light and the essence of who they are, so they can do the same for their daughters and sons. I want to live in a world where young girls and women can be strong, assertive, and confident (without being called bitchy), as well as sensitive, sensual, and compassionate (without being called a pushover). I want boys to be able to cry without being shamed and to be rough and tumble, but sensitive and caring at the same time. That’s what I’m passionate about and I feel that it all starts at home, with us…moms and dads.
How do you take care of yourself?
Right now, my favorite self-care practices are meditation, acupuncture, dancing, and simply slowing down and recognizing the beauty in life. I also enjoy a large cup of organic tea in my favorite handmade mug with vanilla coconut creamer added (YUM) and green juice. Just recently I attended an amazing retreat, which definitely felt like a luxury and massive self-care heaven!
What else would you like to share about you, your work or anything?
Right now I work with moms who have daughters and sons privately and for 12 weeks at a time, and this has been the only way to work with me up to this point. I’m super excited to tell you that my small group program is almost complete and will start no later than September of this year! It will include 1-1 AND group time for each woman in this group of no more than 8. This new program is for spiritual, conscious, and open-minded moms with daughters OR sons. It will encompass helping moms heal past hurt or trauma, feel more integrated in their feminine and masculine, trust their intuition more, become more aware of their bodies on a daily basis as it relates to their unconscious patterns, improve their relationships with themselves, their partners, and their children (there will be a parenting component as well). We will also talk about and teach rituals, guided visualizations, journaling, incorporating spirituality into your children’s lives, and more. I am beyond excited about it and I know it will help SO many women!
Do you have a favorite inspirational quote?
“A mother who radiates self-love and self-acceptance actually vaccinates her daughter against low self-esteem.”
And the following is one of my quotes that I like.:)
“When you choose to release your children from YOUR expectations of who you THINK they should be, then they have the space they need to become confident and to shine their own unique lights into the world.”
Where can we find you?
