Times are changing and we must change with them. For a while I’ve been contemplating letting Body Karma Healing go, hiding out a bit from the world in my happy little life. Not that I don’t adore my work, it just gets to be a lot at times. Then things got shaken up in our country and I was reminded just how important women’s healing and empowerment is, not just to our own lives but the lives of others. I was slapped upside the head by the Universe and reawakened to my original inspiration for this work in the first place! Taking the easy train is not an option. All souls on deck…
“One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul.”
-Clarissa Pinkola Estes
So I’m doing something BIG and scary, yet super exciting (isn’t that how most game changing things feel at first?) by bringing on an official partner to BKH. Introducing Kristie Leahy! Watch the video here to get to know her a bit more and to celebrate with us through a mini yoga dance party!
Our first order of business together is revamping the free eCourse to be more user friendly and adding some hour long practices you can purchase as desired to freshen up and deepen your home practice. This is the number one thing you’ve requested. Beyond that we are working on the Goddess Power eCourse and on scheduling BIG workshops and retreats around the country. Please continue to share your ideas with us!
Kristie Leahy, MA, E-RYT 500
As a full-time yoga instructor and community organizer, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to teach over 2,000 hours of yoga to a diverse range of people in a variety of settings. I was introduced to yoga at 4 by my mom, Sylvia, who’s been my main inspiration. My background in Education along with my first certification from Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health (2011) set the strong foundation for a life-long relationship with the path of yoga.
Since then, I’ve studied and trained in advanced yoga practices, trauma and resiliency, children and family specific approaches, Reiki I & II, aerial yoga and other aspects of the art. I’ve earned the E-RYT-500 designation from Yoga Alliance and I don’t plan to stop there. My passion for travel also influences my idea of yoga as union and how there is something very real and universal that connects us all regardless of our experiences or where we’re from.
On a personal note, yoga has brought me deep healing and joy from previous self-destructive behaviors. I hope to share the healing gifts of yoga in a way that makes sense and keeps things meaningful and accessible. My teaching focuses on body, breath, mind, spirit and ‘keeping it real.’ Be ready to lighten up, have some fun and invite some space for peace, happiness and personal empowerment. I look forward to being a part of Body Karma Healing in a bigger way.
Thanks, stay tuned, be YOU!Share
