Chantelle here; I am the creator and Breathwork Facilitator of
The Nourished Woman
As far back as I can find in my journals, reflecting on my meditations and goals, and when I get quiet with myself…there has been a recurring theme – nourish. Nourish my body with whole foods, movement, and rest. Nourish my mind by reading, engaging in healthy social media, podcasts, and most importantly beautiful conversations. Nourish my soul with friends and family, music, nature, earth…I could go on and on.
Nourish is all encompassing for me, and that is how I feel about my business. ‘The Nourished Woman’ aligns more deeply with the essence of my intention and my why behind what I am doing and wanting to do.
Nourishing the mind, body, and soul is a profound journey of self-care and self-discovery…feeding your intellect with knowledge and wisdom, staying curious, and continuously seeking personal growth. It can involve taking care of your physical health through nurturing your body with the foods and medicines, movement, and rest, ensuring your body thrives and remains resilient.
However, nourishing the soul is equally vital; it's about tending to your inner peace, finding moments of tranquility, connecting with your passions, and nurturing your emotional and spiritual well-being. This holistic approach to well-being is like a beautifully balanced recipe for a fulfilling life, where each element complements the other, creating a harmonious symphony of health and happiness.
In this seeking of nourishment, breath was always found. Whether I was teaching myself how to do body scans to release tension with a pain app, my psychologist giving me breath and mindfulness homework, mediating, being guided in body talk or hypno sessions...or just being...Being present...Being outside...Being engaged in ritual that I have beautifully created with inspirations of my own and others...Being a mother. Breath. Since the beginning it has been with us, and always will be with us until the end...
On this journey of healing, I have known I want to help others. I want to offer myself as a light to follow on your own healing path. In the spring of 2021, I became a student of Alchemy of Breath and enrolled in a 400 hour, 8 month course. Alchemy of Breath offers holistic programs that utilize breathwork as the foundation. We moved through the program focusing on mental, emotional, spiritual and physical aspects of the self...everything from unlocking trauma in the body to understanding the limiting beliefs of the mind, to finding our higher purpose in life. I want to help you harness your breath and heal.
I absolutely cannot wait to breathe with you.
