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