Rachel Prairie is a self-proclaimed Embodiment cheerleader. “Let there be no doubt that our bodies are a vessel of wisdom and deep knowing.” In 2010, she graduated from the Boulder College of Massage Therapy with Honors, and became a Nationally Certified Bodyworker. Her practice, Prairie Ocean Bodywork, LLC, is located in Niwot CO. In 2012, she expanded her studies into the Brook Institute, the Barral Institute and the Daoist Dipper School. These studies have solidified her belief in birth advocacy, body-mind intelligence and the resiliency of the human body. Annually, she and her partner, Damian, coordinate somatic and dance based retreats in the San Luis Valley, (Somatic Harvest Retreat) Rachel Prairie feels gratefully nourished and held by the friendships and dances of the Boulder Contact Improv Community.
