New Year’s Resolution

My New Year’s resolution is too make myself more available. I am ready to stretch my capacity and to serve more people in my bodywork practice and in my classes… to boldly go where I have never gone before… to the lands of online scheduling, credit card payment and social media. Slightly terrifying, and certainly overwhelming for me, but I am pressing on into the modern age. Note the schedule button to the right. Ha! I never dreamed it could be this easy!

I’m still happy to converse with you prior to scheduling if you have questions about my work and how it might serve you. Please give a call or send and email if you like. Let’s keep it personal!

I am also excited to share my schedule of classes for the year. We had a full and fabulous self care class in January, taking Saturday morning to participate in the Women’s March on Denver. I was so grateful for the opportunity to share that powerful experience with my students and have our class informed by that context. Taking a stand for women’s rights, the health and education of our children, and the well-being of the planet is another form of Self Care. Finding a power and a voice that rises up from our bellies in protest makes that Wild Feminine more accessible to us individually, even as it serves the collective good.

So YAY! Self Care! I will be holding my next class in Santa Fe in April, and there will be another in Boulder in late August. Check out my Upcoming Classes page for details. I have also listed the professional level classes I where will be teaching for the Arvigo Institute this year, in case you are ready to take it to the next level.

Exciting News!

Happy Spring!

Though I still hope for some substantial snowfall, it does feel like spring is in the air. My crocuses are blooming and daffodils are budding, ready to announce themselves with vibrant color, even though so much is still underground or cocooned in the stems and stalks of things. In keeping with their bold expression, here is my spring bouquet of announcements for you:

I now have lovely office space in the Healing Hub, located at 2945 Center Green Court in Boulder. I am able to schedule there every day, so can easily accommodate your timing. Also, I have teamed up with Michele Kolakowski at Sanctuary Healing Arts and I am available there on Wednesdays.

Next, I am offering classes this year in the Arvigo® Techniques. The first is a one-day class  on April 9th, called Hands on Health: Maya Abdominal Massage for Pregnancy and Postpartum. The second is the Arvigo® Institute’s Self-Care Training, Level One. Please see my “upcoming classes” page for descriptions and details.

Finally, I have renewed and refreshed my practice of Cranio-sacral Therapy. I invite you to come and experience this work in its pure form, or integrated with my massage and Maya Abdominal Therapy.

It’s been a wonderful year of transition. Thank you to all who have entrusted your bodies and your bellies to my hands. I have learned so much, and I look forward to continuing our work together.

Blessings,

Amy

Walk with me on my new path!

Yelapa in MexicoI attended my last lovely home birth in June of 2015 and I have shifted my focus entirely to bodywork and teaching.

Though I will miss being present at the gateway to life, I am committed to supporting women’s health and well-being in every phase and I am ready to make more time to do so.

Bringing my years of midwifery experience to the practice of Maya Abdominal Therapy, I will be addressing fertility issues, menstrual and pre-menstrual difficulties, prolapse and incontinence, digestive problems and more, in addition to optimizing health in pregnancy and postpartum.

I will continue to offer full-body massage as well, prenatal and otherwise.

Please contact me with questions, or to schedule your first session. I look forward to working with you!
