About Lindsay

Hey friend, I’m Lindsay and I am so happy that you’re here. Ten years ago I was catapulted into this wild journey of self-exploration and deep healing. I knew that it was my life’s work to share my light with others in efforts to reduce suffering and increase human consciousness.

 

I was born and raised in a highly conservative, highly controlling religious organization. Throughout my late teens as I began to grow into my own, I knew that it wasn’t the right path for me. At 19 I made the incredibly difficult decision to step out of the church, and because of their requirement to shun those who leave, I lost contact with that life and everyone in it.

Even though it was an earth shattering transition, this was the catalyst to my healing.

About a year into my new life, while lost and confused and recreating my entire reality, I discovered yoga and eastern philosophy. I like to think that it found me, and not the other way around. I quickly realized that yoga was so much more than a workout, and the more I practiced, the more I could feel myself growing in mental, physical and emotional awareness. The mindfulness I gained bled out onto every other part of my life.

 

At 23, I became a certified teacher, and have been actively teaching yoga and meditation ever since.

Throughout my 20s as I continued to navigate through the ups and downs of life, it was my relationship with yoga, meditation, and somatic healing that kept me afloat and in a state of growth. You can read all of the books in the world, but nothing teaches you the way experience does.

 

After moving through waves of struggling with nervous system dysregulation, hormonal imbalances, death of loved ones and divorce, because of my self-resourcing practices I learned how to sit with my pain and alchemize it into my power.

ABOUT LINDSAY - 1.jpg

In my late-20s I spent time working at a regenerative bio boutique in Dayton, OH, which exposed me further to the world of emotional and somatic healing, understanding the ways that the body holds onto trauma, how it manifests, and how it can be discharged from the body. It was during this time that I was connected with my now teacher, Tim Morrison.

 

Not long after, I enrolled in Tim's breathwork facilitator training, becoming a certified facilitator of therapeutic breathwork and somatic healing - this included a deep dive into topics like trauma, childhood development, somatic experiencing and attachment theory. One year after completion I enrolled in his Level 2 training, further studying trauma, bodywork, shamanic energy work and sound healing. My education has given me the foundation to hold space for a wide array of individuals looking for healing beyond the surface.

Personal Interests & Hobbies

I’m grateful to be immersed in a line of work that doesn’t actually feel like work, and integrates seamlessly into my everyday life. I am endlessly fascinated with the human experience.

 

Reading, watching documentaries, listening to podcasts, cooking and moving my body are things you can find me doing in my down time. Other than that, my goal each day is to simply practice savoring the moment. Whether I am spending time in nature, adventuring with my partner Rob, traveling, with loved ones, exploring life in Cincinnati, or intentionally resting.

In my humble opinion, breathwork is the missing puzzle piece that so many of us need, whether we realize it or not. In a perfect world, we could speak our way into having a resilient and regulated nervous system. But unfortunately, that’s not how our bodies work, and it’s something that needs to be cultivated on a somatic level through both top-down and bottom-up therapies.

It can be easy to forget how good you can feel every single day. I am grateful to have the opportunity to hold space and show clients exactly how grounded and connected they can feel in their bodies, and then spread that energy everywhere they go.

"We cannot speak our way into having a resilient & regulated nervous system - it must be done on a somatic level."

My breathwork approach and techniques

My main goal when working with clients is to ensure they feel as safe and comfortable as possible. In our sessions together, we are working to deepen your awareness, strengthen the relationship that you have with your body, and begin to create a more resilient and regulated nervous system.

While no two sessions look the same because each of us are carrying different energy and emotions within, our home base is always the breath.

 

I guide you through both functional styles and therapeutic styles of breathing, integrating gentle body work and energy work when needed.

 

Touch is one of the most effective ways to bring a sense of grounding to the nervous system when difficult emotions are being released.

I also encourage clients to move around organically as they breathe to drop deeper into their experience, and allow stagnant emotion to be discharged from the body.

 

Emotion is energy in motion, so it is meant to be moved around and released from our being.
