A nourishing and grounding evening of self-care offerings & alternative holistic therapies to cultivate a deeper relationship with our bodies and our wombs. The womb is the feminine center of creation and power. It is also a place where we hold joy & trauma. Just the intention to reconnect to this space can be powerful and healing, especially in the presence of other women in circle.
The evening will consist of:
~ Restorative yoga poses
~ Guided body-centered meditation
~ Expressive art & writing to reveal stories of our bodies
~ Healing touch through self-belly massage
~ Weaving in ritual
~ Tea, an open space for optional sharing & check-ins
By healing ourselves and our relationships to our wombs and our bodies, we are automatically impacting the lives of future generations, and also the women we came from, extending back through time, and clearing energetic imprints of our ancestors. All are welcome.
Pre-registration is recommended. Wear comfortable clothing.

Ashley is a Licensed Massage Therapist practicing in Newport for the past 5 years. She is certified in Prenatal and Yin Yoga and is a Birth Doula in training. Ashley offers pregnancy packages based on how closely women want to work one on one throughout their pregnancy, offering Prenatal Yoga, Prenatal Massage, Sacred Ceremony, Aromatherapy and Birth Doula Services. Ashley's work focuses on helping women get in touch with themselves on a very deep level to access the inherent wisdom within. Her work revolves around the Divine Feminine and connecting deeply with ourselves through our bodies. Throughout our human history a group of women have helped a woman give birth, given support to others during their moon cycles, and have been an emotional wellspring for their fellow sisters. Ashley uses this ancestral knowledge and tradition to support women in her community in a similar way.
