Your Teachers

Paula Marie

Paula Marie is a social worker and a Healing Arts Practitioner in NC. Paula is here as a bridge to help individuals access higher states of consciousness and the harmonics of the Self through the medium of sound.

Paula has been on a path of embodied consciousness since the age of 17. Her own journey of learning to live, love, and listen to the body has been influenced by her training in and experience in body-based therapy, movement explorations, and spiritual practices.

Paula offers deep attunement and somatic resonance, to help individuals shift their frequency into deeper states of mind-body coherence. As a Somatic Experiencing practitioner focused on developmental wounding, Paula has an in-depth understanding of the ways in which we hold our narratives in the nervous system and body. She is also trained in Biofield Tuning and Reiki which she uses to support individual, ancestral, and collective healing.


Leslie is an experienced teacher of yoga, licensed massage and bodywork therapist, and somatically oriented psychotherapist.

From a very young age, Leslie’s sincere desire and curiosity to understand suffering and how emergence from suffering leads to deeper kindness, wisdom, and generosity, has and continues to be a lifelong journey.

Leslie uses somatic tools and practices in a compassionately attuned, integrative, and evidenced-based way stemming from her experience and training in: the yogic tradition, anatomy and physiology, as well as Somatic Experiencing and IFS. This work offers clients gentle and transformative ways to access and shift the challenging experiences and emotions that live in and through their bodies.

Through training, experience, and understanding gained while emerging from her own suffering, Leslie hopes to better serve: her family, loved ones, and those in the broader communities with which she lives.
