Birthing Ourselves Into Being

Our 2014 Nashville Birthing Ourselves into Being year-long women’s circle is in full swing.

The year-long Circle will not run in 2015, but please visit Blooma Nashville for new, themed Circle series coming in the new year!


Details for this year-long women’s circle are available here on the blog and on Facebook.

Circle is co-facilitated by Jennifer Derryberry Mann and Emi Canahuati.

Jennifer Derryberry Mann headshotJenni‘s introduction to circle work began 10 years ago, during a yoga teacher training course. Jenni’s introduction to self-care happened around that same time, when a coach suggested scheduling some “white space” into her overbooked calendar. Becoming a mom, relocating to a new city, and stumbling through postpartum depression led Jenni to understand self-care and circle work as essential, preventative medicine for living happy and healthy in a stressful world. Jenni has worked with Birthing Ourselves into Being since 2011, when she participated in the Athens, GA, circle. Jenni facilitated Nashville’s first year-long BOiB women’s circle in 2013, and she is honored and excited to co-facilitate the circle with Emi Canahuati. Jenni also offers seasonal circles, prenatal and postnatal yoga classes, and Transformational Life Coaching sessions for women who want to cultivate their self-care practice as a source of self-compassion during times of change.

Emi Canahuati, sexuality educator May 14Emi is dedicated to helping women thrive by creating lives full of freedom and happiness. She has 15 years of experience as a sexuality health educator, and she is the founder and owner of Thrive Education. Emi’s workshops help parents, couples, and professionals learn to speak in a safe, authentic way about sexuality as an integral part of a happy, healthy life. Through her work in the 2013 Birthing Ourselves into Being circle, Emi transformed her understanding of self-care as a whole-life practice. She is infusing that perspective into her sexuality health coaching practice and into her role as co-facilitator.
