About the facilitators:

Kaitee is the founder of Moon Body Soul. Her passion is empowering others to truly care for themselves through mindful movement, meditations & self-love practices - all inspired by the healing energy of the Moon. She has more than 10+ years of experience guiding people into their bodies with yoga & meditation. Kaitee believes these practices are for all bodies + all levels. She is also an avid crystal miner and lover of rocks & minerals. These beautiful gifts from mother earth have helped her find a deeper connection to herself + the oneness of the universe & she can't wait to share more with you!
Native from France, Karen Nitsche is a Breathwork Facilitator, Embodiment guide and Yoga teacher based in Ojai, California. As a former dancer, Karen spent her entire life diving into creative expressions through different modalities. Her Breathwork sessions take their roots in the work of Dr. Stanislav Grof and are powerful tools that support self discovery, transformation and healing through working in expanded states of consciousness. Eternal student of life, you'll find her traveling around the globe, spending time in nature, dancing, gathering in community, and always taking new courses to educate herself and explore new possibilities. 
Whitney Willison is an Usui Reiki master and teacher, an intuitive channel, holistic hairstylist, and mother. Her calling is to bridge the worlds of healing and beauty through empowerment, radical releasing, and through earth-centered rituals. She has a passion for education, or rather, unlearning and regularly holds classes, workshops, women's circles, and Reiki shares. She believes it’s every being's divine right to know their own beauty and power, and to trust in their innate ability to heal and be their own greatest resource.
