MEET YOUR FACILITATORS

Chrissie

Chrissie is a yoga & meditation teacher, Rebirthing breathwork facilitator, Reiki master & Bodytalk energy healer, naturopath and Shamanic cacao ceremony facilitator and a mermaid, loving the ocean. 

Chrissie loves to take her students on a journey into the energy body and connect to feeling and healing through an embodied chakra yoga & meditation flow.

Loving the power of cacao & rebirthing breathwork to open our hearts and come back to the truth of who we are, Chrissie also offers group healing journeys and circles as well as 1:1 sessions and loves taking people on retreat to really dive deep. 

Breathwork can be amazing to reset our nervous systems and drop deep so we feel safe and held to release old limiting beliefs, trauma stuck in the body holding back from our true essence and shining our lights brightly!

Chrissie loves holding a safe space for her students working with the seen and unseen to create a safe container to feel supported on their journey and to be able to be vulnerable and drop deeper to connect back to themselves and their light. Her warmth and empathy creates a powerful healing presence.
