Why Roots?

As I announce my new business name, I wanted to address the question that always follows, why Roots?

  • Roots are firm and solid, the base or foundation of a plant that grow deep into the ground. They are essential and they provide moisture and nutrients to the plant through branches and fibers to support life. Although we may not be comprised of physical roots, our bodies are full of organs, cells, fibers, bones, muscles and tendons that provide in the same way. We need to pay attention to our structure and it's foundation in order to live life the way our bodies were meant to; with growth, movement, nourishment and replenishment. 
  • My husband and I, along with our 2 little daughters, live in San Diego, CA. We met here and we can't think of any other place we would rather be. For years now, we have been establishing a foundation by developing community, running our businesses and raising our kids. We are pouring into relationships and our neighborhood. We have decided that we want our roots to be firmly planted here.
  • Who are we and where do we come from? What experiences have shaped our lives? In what areas do we struggle? Let's explore all of this when we connect with each other. Let's find out the root cause of the things that hold us back or the things that make us tick. Let's face our issues and work toward improving our life through change. I am someone who struggled with bulimia throughout college and it's taken me years to overcome my unhealthy relationship with food and the way I see my body. If I am told to just go workout or to go on a diet to lose weight, that doesn't work for me. I need to address other deeper rooted issues like control, trust, insecurity and acceptance. Our foundations and experiences are different but we all need movement and nourishment to survive- I want to help others find the ways that work best for them.

Thanks for tuning in!
