Women's Workshops in Colorado and California

Sophia MCDermott Colorado, Feb 2019-6.jpg

The past weekend I ventured to Colorado to teach a women’s workshops. I taught at Katharo Training Center. Thank you to Jen Hordinski for being such an amazing host.

Cali, Legacy, Feb 2019.jpg

The week prior I was in Los Angeles teaching another women’s workshop. Ladies form all over Cali came to enjoy the experience. Thank you to Legacy for opening your guy to me and for Lisette and Felina for hosting me.

It is so wonderful to be able to share technique and tips that work better for women in a male dominated sport. I find these women’s workshops such a good way for women to connect in a non competitive environment and to support each other. It is great too that we can tough on issues that only women experience as female athletes. #empoweredwomenempoweringwomen

I was blessed to experience so much snow!!!. For me being an Aussie, this is super novel. I really enjoyed the experience, but now I am ready for spring. lol

Thrive After Divorce Series, guest speaker.

I was super honored to be one of 25 people as a guest speaker for the Thrive After Divorce Show, hosted by Lisa Fountain. My focus is about using movement as a tool to get through the trauma and to stay in the present moment. Anxiety comes about from being worried/fearful about the future or being stressed about the past. Always being in the present moment is very hard to do, but with tool such as exercise and mindfulness meditation, it is achievable.

Click here listen to me and all the amazing speaker to help give you some support if you are going through this. Its not easy and getting all the support you can is so important.
