Facilitator & Teacher
Hi! I'm Rhiannon and I'm a certified facilitator, teacher, meditation guide, yin yoga instructor, healing integration consultant, and Spanish translator. Most importantly, I am human and I have lived through a plethora of positive and negative experiences in my thirty-plus years here on Earth. I share this because it is integral to my work. My intense life experiences and intense healing processes have helped me cultivate a huge amount of compassion for my human colleagues. As a result, I approach people with non-judgement, gentle humor, and an open heart. I often have complete strangers share things with me that they don't normally share with others (so they say). I'm aware that my presence provides safety and inspires trust so I am putting it to work. When you find yourself within a safe and trustworthy container, there is no limit to the amount of understanding and evolving that can take place.

Practice what you preach.
The first formal meditation training that I received was in 2010. I completed the Transcendental Meditation® course via one-on-one instruction and have been practicing TM ever since. In 2017, I completed the 50-Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training Program at The Bhakti Yoga Shala in Santa Monica, California. This program deepened my understanding, practice, and guidance of various yin yoga, meditation, and breath techniques. In 2018, I completed the full facilitator training program with Michael Brian Baker at The Breath Center in California. In this program I learned how to safely, responsibly, and intuitively guide a person through a breathwork session. I studied the ancient origins of respiratory techniques and gained experience and understanding about the extensive health benefits of this advanced human science. Since then I have been facilitating one-on-one sessions in my private practice based in Santa Monica, California. After logging dozens of facilitation hours for individuals and groups and submitting a final exam that resembled a master's thesis, I became a Certified Graduate, Facilitator, and Teacher with The Breath Center. At Bhakti Fest in Joshua Tree, California, I attended a Sanskrit language workshop hosted by Manoj Chalam. In this workshop I studied the science and origin of sanskrit mantras. This served to increase my understanding of mantra and the healing power of incorporating sacred sounds into my sessions. Check out testimonials here to get an idea of what a session is like and what it could offer you.
I've been holding space for individuals and guiding them towards the path of their highest potentiality ever since I was a child. After a long journey from the suburbs of Vancouver, BC, Canada to the frenetic streets of Hollywood, USA to the Amazonian jungles of Peru and back, I arrived - right where I started. It turns out that I was the answer to my burning questions all along. I just had to meet myself with transparency, understanding, and trust. Once I learned this, I started putting this into practice to help others. Whether I am guiding you through a breath session, meditation, or integration, I meet you where you are at. I become a transparent and compassionate mirror that reflects your truth back to you. I believe that our healing power lies within each of us and that the job of facilitators like myself is to simply connect you with that power; to introduce you to your best self. Presently, I offer breath sessions remotely via Zoom. Contact me to book a session or sign up for my FREE intro class + session. I used to host fun and engaging women's gatherings in my local community, volunteer as a counselor and Spanish translator at a women’s center in Van Nuys, California called Journey Out, and host a yoga, meditation, and pranayama class for the staff there.
Ok, but what's on paper?
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree from The University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada). I earned several scholarships during my academic career along with a membership to The Golden Key International Honour Society. I am a Certified Graduate, Facilitator, and Teacher with The Breath Center, where I studied and completed all levels of training with Michael Brian Baker. I documented dozens of facilitation hours and completed a final exam which included a 125-page research paper on the art and science of human anatomy, breath technique, and its origins. I am saving up to pursue my Masters in Psychology while continuing to educate myself by diving deep into my self-care practice to unwind and expand my own consciousness. I attend continuing studies webinars online and read literature by my favorite authors, thinkers, artists, and scientists. I also gather knowledge and cleanse myself by working at an entheogenic healing center based in Peru called Sinchi Runa. I have been working with them since 2011, participating in dozens of sessions and completing six "spiritual diets" under the protection and guidance of Maestro Sanango. Accumulatively, I have spent several months in isolation in the jungle self-guiding meditations, pranayama, dream interpretation, writing, and simply being. Should you be interested in pursuing such a journey, I offer consultation, preparation, and integration support in that area as well. Please contact me for more information.
