In this podcast, Heather Fraelick shares her gifts: herself! She is joy, as the meaning of her last name describes, and reminds us all that we are human in process. She discusses her dance career has been an essential part of her life and offerings, being human and feeling, the myth that we are “healed” or “zen” at some point, saying “No” and having healthy boundaries, and how the body talks to us.
Heather has a beautiful gift of talking with our fascia, muscles and body, and teaches this to all those around her. She brings a lightness, joy, and ease in self care of the body, heart and soul.
In essence, Heather brings forth a compassionate, listening ear to each session, workshop, or circle, and enjoys helping clients empower themselves on their road to recovery!
