HI THERE, I’M KANNA

I’m deeply passionate about empowering others with tools to connect to their PERSONAL POWER, reclaiming their divine birthright to live in alignment with AUTHENTICITY & INTEGRITY, while COURAGEOUSLY designing a life that uniquely fits YOU.

As a transformation guide, my practice is a unique intersection of ancient healing practices of yoga, meditation, shamanism, modern Jungian psychology known as Shadow Work, integrative bodywork & energy clearing, offering support for personal transformation & healing. I believe that everyone holds an innate wisdom to heal themselves and that the answers lie within.

With over 8 years of experience as an energy healer and bodyworker, I utilize IMT (Integrated Movement Therapy, a yoga based therapy) to serve as the foundation of my practice. IMT merges yogic philosophy, movement and spiritual framework that views each person as whole and complete. I specialize in addressing:

  • Trauma

  • PTSD

  • Grief and Loss

  • Depression and Anxiety

  • Life Transitions

  • Getting Unstuck (in career/relationships)

  • Family of Origin exploration

  • Auto-immune challenges

In many ways, personal transformation and healing is similar to deep free diving. It can be scary, dark, confusing and filled with many unknowns. I will arm you with tools to ease into this “dive,” to manage triggers, stress, anxiety and fear. The process of healing is never linear nor prescriptive yet powerfully life-changing. I offer a variety of techniques so you can organically gain new insights & revelations to elevate into a place of VIBRANCY, replacing outdated narratives with ones that allow for rediscovery of your SOVEREIGNTY and reclaiming of PERSONAL POWER.

While offering a safe container for the spheres of the mind, body and spirit to coalesce harmoniously, my ultimate intention is to reflect back to you the MAGIC, POWER & LOVE that rests within & the great capacity you have to heal, restore and renew when the Heart and Mind are in congruence. I am honored to co-create with you and bear witness to your unfolding.   

 
 
They asked her, “What is the key to saving the world?” She answered, “You. You are the key. Heal yourself, know yourself, make yourself whole and free. Release all limits so that your love can flow unconditionally for yourself and the world, this will open the heaven of your heart completely and it will guide you without fail.”
