Connect to Your Body's Natural Rhythms

Are you ready to reconnect with your body’s innate wisdom and step out of the mental chatter? At Maddie Meditates, our conscious movement & embodiment classes in St. Pete, FL offer the perfect opportunity to do just that.

These sessions are designed to guide you out of your head and into your body’s natural rhythms, fostering a deeper connection to yourself and the vibrant world around you.

What Is Conscious Movement / Embodiment?

Within a Conscious Movement Session, our objective is to connect to the frequency of freedom. Through embodiment we are able to connect to something much deeper than the mind, but the Eternal Wisdom of the body.


Using movement to get out the mind and into the body. Where we put our focus our energy flows. When we move our attention into the body, we are able to tune into what requires tending to.


The body holds onto traumatic memories, our past, childhood experiences, stress, and all the things that have the possibility to limit us. By getting into the body and out of the mind, we have the power to come in contact with these things and release them.

What Can I Expect In My Conscious Movement / Embodiment Session?

We’ll start off simple - with the eyes closed and minimal movement, helping you to deepen your connection with your body. Really feeling into spaces that haven’t been felt in a while, or maybe even ever.


The music selected for our session will reflect our intention of the session - this could range from freedom, fun, embodiment, all the way to releasing anger, resentment, or getting out of your mind & much more.


After the beginnings of connecting with the body, **if we feel called**, we’ll rise and begin feeling into ecstatic dance. Ecstatic dance is a form of movement that abides by the simple rule of moving your body however feels most fit. This is a space of no judgement, no talking, pure movement. Entering into a trance like state and being guided simply by the music and your body.


Sometimes dance is not necessary - simply connecting to the body and the inner field of Being is all that is needed.


After our session comes to a close, we’ll be able to debrief with one another on how the movement made you feel and what may have come up.


Our bodies are the vehicles to the Divine, to Spirit! Let us connect, deepen, and enliven our Souls.

What Are The Benefits Of Conscious Movement / Embodiment?

Living in such a head heavy world, it is no wonder many of us struggle to drop into our body. For so long cognitive and rational thinking has been put on a pedestal. As a result, we have lost our ability to tune into our powerful felt sense. Which, when combined with the rational mind, will make you a force to be reckoned with!

Below are just some of the many reasons why you should be carving out time each day to come home to your body:

  1. Experiencing the wholeness of life

  2. To gather feedback on the life you are living and the choices you are making

  3. Starting to become more aware and attuned to the subtle sensations of our body - which means increased sensory clarity

  4. Greater self-awareness and insight

  5. A deeper connection to others

  6. Detecting things that we weren’t originally aware of (both within and outside our body)

  7. Gaining a deeper sense of clarity and feeling more able to make clearer distinctions

  8. Better navigation and decision making - what feels good now might not serve us in the long term i.e. burn out or adrenal fatigue

  9. A more informed pleasure and pain calculation

  10. A greater ability to respond better and more aligned with your truth in the moment

  11. Increased bodily wisdom - you will be able to know what is true for you based on what your body is saying

  12. Better boundary creation!

  • Is Reiki Healing a religion?
    Although Reiki energy is spiritual in nature, Reiki is not a religion. Practitioners are not asked to change any religious or spiritual beliefs they may have. They are free to continue believing anything they choose and are encouraged to make their own decisions concerning the nature of their religious practices.
  • Are there any side effects from a Reiki Healing Session?
    Most of the time a person will feel relaxed and uplifted by a Reiki treatment. However, sometimes a person will have what is called a healing crisis. As a person’s vibration goes up, toxins that have been stored in the body will be released into the blood stream to be filtered by the liver and kidneys and removed from the system. When this happens, sometimes a person can get a headache or stomach ache or feel weak. If this happens, it is a good idea to drink more water, eat lighter meals and get more rest. The body is cleansing as part of the healing process so this is a good sign.
  • Does insurance cover Reiki Energy Healing?
    Reiki is just starting to be recognized by insurance companies. While not many are covering Reiki treatments, some are. Check with your local insurance company for details.
  • How does Reiki Energy Healing work?
    We are alive because life force is flowing through us. Life force flows within the physical body though pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body. The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body. Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.
  • Is reiki safe for pregnant women?
    Since Reiki is guided by the Higher Power, the Reiki energy will know the condition of the client or student and adjust appropriately. Reiki can only do good. Many pregnant women have received treatments with great benefit to them and their unborn child. It has also been used during child birth. Pregnant women have also taken the Reiki training and received the Reiki attunement with beneficial results.
  • Where does Reiki Energy come from?
    Reiki energy is a subtle energy. It is different than electricity or chemical energy or other kinds of physical energy. Reiki energy comes from the Higher Power, which exists on a higher dimension than the physical world we are familiar with. When viewed clairvoyantly, Reiki energy appears to come down from above and to enter the top of the practitioners head after which if flows through the body and out the hands. It appears to flow this way because of our perspective. However, the true source of Reiki energy is within ourselves. This does not mean that we use our personal energy when we do Reiki, but that the energy is coming from a transcendental part of ourselves that is connected to an infinite supply of healing energy.
  • How does a distant Reiki Energy Healing session work?
    Distance is quite simply a method to help others with their own personal healing without actually being physically present with them. Energy is not limited by time or space. Our Higher Self is fully aware of this lack of limitations. Logic and reason are also not required. We are able to embrace cause and effect simultaneously with the past, present, and future. It makes no difference at this level if the person we are working with is on the other side of the room or the other side of the planet. We are only limited by questions of our own intellect. We need only ignore this cultural conditioning and proceed guided by the intuitive abilities of our true self. When performing distance healing it is often said that one "sends" healing to another. This is actually a misnomer. The person receiving the healing actually draws upon their own Universal Life Force. As with an in-person healing session the Reiki Practitioner simply helps channel this energy. From a distance the healer becomes a bridge between healee and the source.

Conscious Movement sessions are my favorite! 

You get soooo in your body and become so relaxed. You're able to move about freely without judgement.

Having lived out of my body for so many years - it feels so good to be back living WITHIN my body.

Thank you Maddie! Xo

I never really enjoyed moving my body very much. Rarely would I go out for walks or any kind of exercise for that matter, but Conscious Movement and Embodiment sessions are where I found my healing. 

I had no idea how much pain and trauma I was storing in my body and my hips specifically. 

By gently moving and listening to my body, I was able to connect with myself in a way I've never experienced before.

You MUST book a Conscious Movement and Embodiment session with Maddie!

When I came in for the session, my initial intention for the session was to slow down and calm down, but I realized half way into the session all I really wanted to do was dance it OUT! 

& it felt SO good! 

Thank you for being such a wonderful guide Maddie. I am so thankful for you!
