Mental Nourishment for your Embodied Journaling Journey:
The Power of Morning Ritual: a FREE Guide
Ever reach the end of the day and wonder where it went? Do you feel exhausted by lunchtime? Or feel like all you do is run around catering for others when you get home from work? Family, school, work and extracurricular activities fall top of the priority for most of us. But what about you? Shouldn’t YOU be at the top of YOUR list too?
How are you meeting your self-care needs?
“I don’t have time,” or “I guess I never really thought about it,” are the top answers I hear the most with my students and clients.
My immediate response?
“If you aren’t taking care of yourself, how well you are really taking care of everyone else?”
Constantly going, working from a never-ending to do list without any rest is taxing on the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Our bodies are beautifully designed to achieve balance and the ANS is a fine example of it. On one side is the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) which elicits a ‘rest and digest’ response, and the opposite is the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), aka the “fight or flight” response that automatically kicks in during an emergency or a crisis. Unfortunately, in our Western culture, many of us constantly live in the “crisis mode,” (SNS) with our never ending cycle of pushing our limits -to get more, do more, be more.
The one part of our day we can control is our mornings. Get practical tips for creating a morning ritual. Download the FREE GUIDE.
Hi! I’m Heather Sage. Welcome to my little corner of the internet; I’m so glad you’re here.
A lifelong journaler, I began to see themes around the things I was writing about and started sharing more frequently here and on social media. Comments like “you’re reading my mind” and “I needed this today,” came often, and I knew I had to do something deeper with it.
Professional writer, poet, yoga teacher, embodiment educator and journaling coach are some of the labels life gives me, but at my core I’m simply an empath and a helper. Through my yoga teaching years I’ve learned that we are all more alike than different and that we are all trying to live the best way we know how.
Soul fabric is an offering, a bit of my heart in words, courses to help you glean a bit more from your life, 1:1 writing and embodiment coaching, and soon-to-be a hub of sacred stories (from you) about the human experience. I am fascinated by our beautiful human-ness and the ways we make meaning, as well as our inherent creativity and the necessity for us to self-express.

Yoga and Embodiment Classes
Mindful Movement: Once per month, I offer mindful movement and gentle yoga at the Somerset Public Library. Open to all, though mostly attended by individuals sixty and up, these classes utilize props such as blocks, straps and chairs to increase mobility and invite daily awareness and movement into participants’ lives. Classes are free but pre-registration is required. 2020 schedule coming soon.
Yoga for Cancer: Are you a cancer survivor or currently going through cancer treatment? I teach weekly classes (along with other instructors) at the Cancer Resource Center, a division of Fairfield Medical Center in Lancaster, Ohio.
These classes are near and dear to my heart, as my mom lived with cancer for several years, on three separate occasions, before succumbing to the horrible disease. Classes are gentle, encouraging movement, awareness and community. FREE. Open to survivors and caregivers––Thursday mornings at 10a.
1:1 and Small Group Yoga Sessions: One-on-one and small group classes available at my hOMe studio on 19 acres just two miles outside of Somerset. Come practice yoga in a serene, peaceful setting weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. (Small group sessions are organized by participants, up to four people––split the 1:1 fee between up to four individuals.) $60/hour session.
