28 day Mama Love (day 6)


Michelle Cohen & I met at Itsy Bitsy Yoga training.. and we connected quickly.  I noticed her bubbly and chatty personality and could not believe the energy in this little lady!

I have seen Michelle TOTALLY commit to her own personal growth & happiness, “stand in her own power “and use boundaries in a positive and meaningful way for her own life.

In the past few years I have seen her take personal responsibility for her work / life balance and make sure to set boundaries around her top priorities. Michelle & I have worked together on events that have been life changing for me, bringing Katrina Kennison & Karen Maezen Miller to LO along with co- hosting seasonal retreats for LO and Mother’s Day events.

I LOVE working with Michelle and find her work inspiring and heartfelt. In the past 2 years she became a Doula and is now a POWERFUL force in the birth world in DC. I hear beautiful stories about her commitment to her clients and her impact on the birth of their children.

This year, Michelle also committed to her meditation  practice by attending a zen retreat for the first time.

I am so proud of her. Just a few short years ago, she was dreaming & wishing  that some day she would be able to make an impact in DC birth and yoga world & community, be of service, spend quality time with her family AND her self, and commit to a meditation practice.  AND NOW it’s all happening. It is such a pleasure to watch her shine.

Thanks for continuing to believe in me, and giving me an opportunity to do work I LOVE.
