Visiting Teachers & Healers


Alchemilla's School of Embodied Herbalism

Andrea worked in a hospital setting as an RN for 15+ years and couldn’t shake the knowing that there was a better way to do health care.  Living with two autoimmune diseases, Type 1 diabetes and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, gave Andrea the passion to help other women.  The culmination of her knowledge and passion led her to leave the hospital to study Holistic Nutrition.  In the process, she also completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training and Stone Medicine certification.  She is now an educator in Mind Body Medicine, Certified Holistic Nutritionist, Yoga Instructor, and Reiki Master.  She has learned the perfect recipe of East meets West for a unique approach to nutrition and lifestyle

Melissa teaches breath-led yoga classes that are appropriate for all ages, sizes, and experience levels.  Her favorite practice to share is an outdoor yoga practice that facilitates grounding and helps enhance connection to both self and earth.  She is the proprietor of Green Heart Awakening, a healing space and collective gift to her community.

Rebecca is a lifelong musician, songwriter, and lover of sound.  When combined with healing intention, she believes music—especially through voice and strings—is deep and beautiful medicine.  Her personal healing journey has been long and magical, and along the way, many God-given medicines have blessed her:  plants, animals, stones, music, dance, and reiki.  She loves to offer the medicine of story, and her childlike cheerfulness is good heart medicine.
