Carmel found her first yoga book at age 8, right after her first communion, that confused the hell out of her!
She grew up in Los Angeles in the 80's with a burning secret that she was broken & unlovable.
And on a last ditch effort to find comfort in her own body & out of her bad girl self destruction, she joined her first yoga class at Santa Monica College, at age 20.
She wrote on her intake form
" I just want to learn how to stop crying every day".
Her commitment & curiosity took her on a journey of extensive self study and professional clinical application of healing modalities, including holistic health, somatic massage & bodywork, homeopathic & naturopathic remedies, anatomy, aromatherapy, reflexology, acupressure therapy, craniosacral therapies, NLP, hypnotherapy, performance & art therapy, polarity and Chakra Reiki, and Modern Witchcraft.
Her studies in the fields of Quantum Learning, Somatic Bodywork and Holistic Wellness became the foundation of her work that she teaches in her Shadow Chakra Coloring Alchemy and in
her Shadow Chakra Breakthrough System; In Depth Online Self Study Play Programs.
In her life-long pursuit of becoming a better teacher and a better student. Carmel has undertaken her own in-depth studies of Yoga in India, Japan, Hawaii , Joshua Tree, San Francisco, Los Angles & Sebastopol, Columbus and continues to pursue the joy of learning & creativity with exploring beautiful Mother Earth with her Honey.
In July of 2012, Carmel suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury, forever changing how she teaches and creates art.
Her 37 year healing journey continues, building upon her professional exploration and studies of trauma for healing her own nervous system from multiple injuries and early childhood sexual trauma, has now taken her wisdom into a deep study of alchemy of the female biological systems with her daily practice to build new neuropathways with her own formula of play and movement that continues to create new levels of healing and peace with her shadow journey.
Carmel shares her journey and coloring therapy on her social media pages.
