Hello there! My name is Alicia, and I am your go-to person for everything related to Nervous System, Mindfulness, Health, and Wellness. As an experienced educator and speaker, I have honed my skills in guiding people of all ages through the complexities of stress management with the help of mindfulness and somatic exercises. I am based in rural Ontario and have created Mindful Roots as a haven where the wonder of holistic well-being meets the joys of family, travel, and everyday life.

My journey hasn’t been a linear one. With diplomas in Developmental Services Work and Autism and Behaviour Science, I worked as an Educational Assistant and Instructor Therapist for 12 years. However, it was juggling kids and students, along with my struggles with chronic pain, that sparked my passion for helping others regulate their energy and stress.

Navigating burnout and adrenal fatigue, I found comfort in Mindful Self-Compassion. This personal lifeline led to the creation of Mindful Roots, a platform where I share my journey of self-healing and offer a plethora of resources for navigating the intricacies of modern life. Through my Self-Regulation practice, I transformed negative stress into positive stress by tapping into my body’s innate wisdom and learning to care for my nervous system.

My workshops, popular among educators, parents, professionals, and those dealing with high-stress situations, are a vibrant blend of mindfulness, breathwork, yoga, and nervous system wisdom tailored to suit everyone, including teenagers.

I work with individuals of all ages because this work will benefit us throughout our lives. In my free time, I often take peaceful walks in the woods, followed by calming yoga, fiery pilates, and invigorating breathwork. I also have a passion for making candles, reading, and kayaking. My family shares my love for adventure, and together, we enjoy travelling, hiking, camping, and the sweet tradition of making maple syrup.

Join me on this holistic journey at Mindful Roots, where wellness isn’t a destination; it’s a way of life. 🌿✨
