Episode 180: Release Your Inner WILD ONE with Elana Meta

If you haven’t heard of Elana Meta you soon will. You probably know by now that I’m all about tribe and making impactful connections with others, so it will come as no shock why I connected with Elana after listening to our conversation.

As a dance catalyst and teacher, Elana has made it her mission to create spaces for women – and men to help them merge the emotional and logical parts of the brain. While most recently hosting small groups in her home to help women step into their power, she wanted to create a larger event (Wild Vessel) that could help more women and men, too. Elana helps these individuals see themselves more deeply by moving the body to quiet the mind.

Elana invites you to an experience to help you see things more clearly in a substance-, device- and shoe-free space (ha, check your shoes at the door). If this sounds like an event that resonates with you, see the Resources section on this page.

Here’s to empowering your wild side!
