Chicago is home to some of the best Yogis, Pilates pros, fitness trainers, nutritionists and more – people who devote their lives to helping the rest of us live a healthier, happier and more peaceful life. We’ll be doing in depth interviews with many of these amazing souls in the coming weeks but we want to give you a quick introduction to some of the city’s wellness pro’s below.
We fear the irrational, contradictory, and paradoxical aspects of the Goddess. We wish we could fit her into tidy boxes with clear, comprehensible labels. We want to arrive at a place where we can say, “Ah, yeah, I got it! That’s how She is.” And then we set out to analyze our way into an understanding of Her. But the Goddess is demanding freedom: a freedom as wild and magnificent as Nature itself. You cannot think or discuss your way to Her. She is a doorway. Only through entering Her you can begin to truly know Her. – @chameliardagh • Fellow women and women-identified, join me this Tuesday 11/21 from 7-830p at @wmn_space for my ALTARED SPACE Healing Class for Gratitude. We’ll release what is keeping us from being grateful for the goddess, reveal our nature as the doorway of creative power and receive the nurturing that we give. I hope to hold space for your goddess rising there. ✨🙌✨ Guided Meditation | Reiki | Gong Bath | Gifted Crystal Capture by @amindavilla 💖

I let go today 💓 I can’t even tell you the adrenaline and rush this gave me. I felt like I was flying 🦋 I’ve been working a lot of technique and strength for many months and I feel like this is my first “trick” on the pole. ☺️ I didn’t breathe the entire time I was upside down but ….. I didn’t fall on my head and pass out so I think that’s winning 😂💁🏻♀️ For those interested in my cross-training, this is it! Pole and Yoga. I believe in using body weight for strengthening and I found a passion! I still love weight training but for now, this is my strength and cross training. I’ve truly never felt more empowered and strong and like I have so much room to gain a ton more real core and inner strength in the months and years to come. 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 I’m LOVING this pole fitness journey. I feel at home and peace here. I found dancing that resonates with my spirit. Today after we danced through our second song I felt a rush of emotion that I haven’t felt before. It was powerful. I love this creative expression. I love the inner confidence and strength. 💓💫💓 Find something … ANYthing in life that makes you feel ALIVE and do it as often as you can. Find a way to express and create. Our bodies were made to move and our spirits meant to create. Follow any curiosity you have. I didn’t start doing pole dancing until I was 35. There are ladies decades older than me practicing too. It’s NEVER too late to grab a new hobby! You’re never too old. Just take a chance and who knows what you’ll find 🌀 I found myself holding my breath upside down letting go of a pole … who knew 😆🤷🏻♀️😂🙌🏽💕
