My holistic healing practice and approach to life draw on my knowledge of Yoruba culture, spirituality, and science to create therapeutic yoga programs for women's empowerment and healing from trauma and violence.
As I navigate the world in, with, and through a black woman's body, I know firsthand how we carry the trauma of gender-based discrimination, violence, and inequality. I use that knowledge and skills to help women find their own true selves as they embrace their past trauma and find the compassion to love themselves, flaws, and all and grow into their holistic wholeness.
