i'm glad you're here!
Doula, Yoga Teacher + Designer
I have always loved hearing people's stories, and felt a calling to heal. I shortly learned that I was hungry to learn and grow my healing practices, and that "healing" can look a lot of different ways. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and attended Columbia College Chicago with a BA in Graphic Design.
(Interested in my graphic design services? Head to samanthaconrad.com). I have also been a nanny for over 7 years to newborns, toddlers, and teens! After graduating and doing my Yoga Teacher Training in 2018, I recognized my passion for holding space for others, and making people feel heard. This desire and calling has bled into several areas in my life, and I consider myself lucky to connect with people in this way.
During my senior year of college, I knew it was time to jump into a Yoga Teacher Training. I got my 200 TT at YogaSix in 2018, and has been teaching ever since. Since my original teacher training, I have had much experience in teaching high-intensity and Power yoga. In 2019, I fell in love with the meditative, restorative aspects of yoga for my own personal healing. I attended a Trauma informed training which has changed the lens in which I teach. Movement and breath activate the parts of the brain that shut-down when we experience Trauma, and can be incredibly healing. I now have my Reiki Level 1 Certification, and have SO enjoyed connecting with yogi's online from all over the world. I will never stop being a yoga student at heart, and would love to guide you deeper into your own yoga + meditation practice.
Alongside yoga, I have always been passionate about Women's Health and Advocacy. I have heard so many stories from people who had jarring birth experiences, and left their birth feeling disconnected. After experiencing pregnancy loss in 2020 and moving through several healing modalities, I found myself feeling very passionate about education surrounding pregnancy loss and birth experiences. I completed my Doula Training through Doula Trainings International and have learned SO much about fertility, birth, and supporting people through any process they choose surrounding pregnancy.
I would love to connect with you.
