Former Groups & Retreats Led


Sexuality: Recovery and Discovery in San Francisco

In this group we explored concepts around:

  • Boundaries- knowing them, setting them, enforcing them
  • Consent- how to ask for consent, how to give consent, and how to say yes or no clearly
  • Learning how to engage with and create an alliance with the signals of your body
  • Picking the right partner- and knowing when to work through something or when to walk away
  • Embodying Your Value, Empowering your voice
  • Softening and Opening Safely and Consciously

Healing the Pelvic Floor Group Co-lead with Jasmine De Lung 

“Healing the Pelvic Floor” was a therapy group specific to women with pelvic pain, painful sex, or pelvic floor numbness.  Pelvic Floor muscles are those that surround the vagina, cervix, and attach to the pelvic bones and sacrum.  The work within these groups was a deep and supportive group process discussing relational issues that stem from having pelvic floor muscles that are sensitive and many times require more explicit communication with partners in order to have an intimate life that is safe and pleasurable.  The group as a whole was embedded in a deep respect for all bodies being different and worthy of love and intimacy. Group finished after two 10 week series.

I have no upcoming retreats at this time. Retreats are a very unique opportunity to be in community together. I look forward to forming one in the future as we continue to unwind from the pandemic.

Past Yoga Retreats

Retreat with Sarana Miller

After 15 years of massage therapy practice and yoga teaching, I am so grateful to have entered this context again from a therapeutic place. Along with learning yoga in the intelligent and presence-filled way with Sarana Miller’s exquisite guidance as a master yoga teacher, therapy can extend to the natural environment, and included the healing waters of Wilber hot springs and the gorgeous vistas of Big Sur. See or to immerse yourself in a healing context.
