"Yoga is all about the mind and body connection.

That said, sex is one of the greatest mind-body experiences. So, together the two can work wonders.

Yoga is designed to relieve stress and improve flexibility, increase blood flow and open your mind. All of these points can heighten your sex life. Yoga also teaches us to live in the moment and become fully aware."

Advocating for holistic wellness through a healthy and loving relationship with body and self.
A Certified Holistic Health Coach and #BodyImage expert. The Body Relationship Coach™, advocating for healthy relationship with body and self. 

See Body. Love Self.  was born from my own life experiences with body hate, body abuse, and body bullying due to lack of resources and support.  I faced body challenges related to my body since an early age.  After understanding just how much my relationship with my body impacted my life story, I realized it was necessary to reach out and empower others with my experiences.  As I have journeyed from a negative body relationship to one of enlightenment, I am continuously learning to love myself and my body along the way.  My joy is in helping others discover a healthy, loving relationship with their own bodies and heal from these pain points:

  • Body Hate- feeling strong and consistent anxiety or negative feelings about your body or body parts
  • Body Shame- having negative feelings around your body, that you keep hidden and secret
  • Body Comparison - consistently looking at others and feeling that your own body is not as beautiful, special or physically adequate
  • Body Bullying- mental, emotional, or physical suffering as a result of ridicule or embarrassment about your body

I enjoy a wide range of topics and activities. However, I am most passionate about: 

  • Body Image
  • Body Love
  • Self Love
  • Body Positive Lifestyle
  • HAES- Healthy at Every Size
  • PCOS Awareness
  • Health and Wellness
  • Holistic Living
  • Holistic Wellness
  • Intuitive Eating 
  • Entrepreneurship 
  • Virtual Connections
  • Global Connections
  • Wanderlust
  • Women's Empowerment
