Trainer: Demetria Jackson wants to live in a world where self-care is seen as a collective responsibility and where the body is seen as a gateway to liberation. As a body acceptance and wellness educator/facilitator she shares ancient medicinal practices like yoga, meditation and reiki energy healing to help people come home to, feel safe in, and access the infinite wisdom of their bodies. Her self-care workshops explore the root cause of burnout and offer both immediate, long-term and preventative first-aid techniques to help alleviate the main and subtle symptoms of burning out.
