Ashley and Michael met in college building a house for Habitat for Humanity, and their partnership, love and respect has birthed two beautiful children and Embody.  They are two opposite ends of the same pole, together they learn and teach through their experiences.

Embody has an open floor plan without the separation of individual treatment rooms. Most people are surprised in their first session, because they have never experienced anything like it. The layout empowers you to create sustainable change through practice. When you come to the realization that you are responsible for your own body and overall well-being, it is an empowering moment.












The Yogic Medicine Bag

Michael teaches how to LOVE and ACCEPT yourself with the Four Agreements created by Dr. Don Miguel Ruiz.

  1. Be Impeccable with your Word

  2. Don’t take things personally

  3. Don’t make assumptions

  4. Do your Best

Michael through the last 16 years of practice of the Four Agreements used various Yogic tools to build awareness and Intent to love, forgive and accept himself.

Awareness is the capacity to see yourself and Intent is Life, the fuel of love and acceptance.

Mama Gaya, a beloved teacher of Michael’s, shared the Truth that everything in our life is a mirror of our own Mind. So, if there is something you are unhappy about, you have to take complete responsibility to change it. You have to love and forgive yourself.

By using Japa, Chanting, Movement, Mirror Work and Candle practices, Michael helps his apprentices come to their own Truth and Realizations within themselves. You are the Temple, the answers come within.

The Yogic Medicine Bag, contains tools to help you embody the love within yourself.



Teacher: Michael Nardi


Ashley teaches how to become strong, stable and confident within your body. Learn practices to gain greater mobility and stability in your joints allowing you to gain a greater movement capacity within your day.  Sessions consist of spinal mobility, balance, coordination, floor work, hanging, squatting and joint solidifying movements. 

Teacher: Ashley Nardi

Physical Therapy

Session will include coordination, pre-hab, rehab, mobility, stability, balance and strengthening exercises to address your injury and your whole body system.  Ashley uses movement, loaded progressive stretching, neuromusculature re-education and movement patterns required to be a human, including squatting, hanging, crawling and swivels.  Tissues respond to the stimulus they are provided with; meaning that if tissues are provided with nourishing movements in the appropriate dosage and intensity, they adapt and become stronger, creating a more mobile and more functional body.  If they are provided with immobility, a fear of movement and compensatory methods of movement, the body will become weaker, less mobile and less functional.  

Practitioner: Ashley Nardi
