A Nutter Origin Story

Marie 2.JPG

"Another origin story?  How original.  Who the hell do you think you are trying to offer me another way to live or work that I haven't already tried?  I mean...Get real.  And this picture?  C'mon!  Get over yourself.  How am I supposed to take you seriously when you got fire wings on your back and a last name like Nutter??"


I get it.  I would say the same damn thing.  So here's me in a nutshell...I don't own mystical powers or the ability to magically deflect bullshit headed my way.  Depending on your day, you might even see my picture of post-traumatic growth by Daniel Sundahl (first responder + internationally known artist) as either being kickass, cheesy, or down right pretentious.  


But the truth of the matter is...We ALL have the capacity to find one step in front of the other to rise above our current personal or professional flames.  We just might not know that yet. 


MNyoga was born from a place of longstanding burnout, accumulated loss, our pandemic experience + my conditioned idea that placing everyone's needs before my own was a perfectly acceptable way to live.  Like many others, my wellness suffered in too many ways to count. 

After a reluctant shift in mindset, I slowly found ways to reset myself through bite-sized pieces of evidenced-based mindfulness, meditation + trauma-informed movement.  Since then, I continue to crawl, fail and learn in the hopes to show (not tell) others the possibilities of progress within this mind-body work. 

The "MN" in MNyoga stands for my initials and my intentional practice of putting myself first.  Keyword = practice.  I believe that choosing what's best for us through present moment experiences might be the best gift we can give back to ourselves, those we serve + the folks we care about. 

Whether you work with me, someone else, or no one at all...please know that how you choose to write your own story will always be your superpower.
