Erin Doty holds certificates as practitioner of Qigong Healing and Energy-Body Healing. Erin is also a Nutritious Movement certified Restorative Exercise Specialist.
While searching for answers and guidance during periods of debilitating, isolating, and confusing anxiety and depression as a young person, Erin found her way to energy work. In this space, both the physical body and spiritual or ‘invisible wisdom’ questions were addressed, welcomed, exercised, nourished, and ultimately transformed.
This learning provided Erin a source of much needed support, rest, connection, and life skills. After practicing what she learned for many years, she was graced with finding and finally accepting the deep love and connection with her now husband, John. This profoundly supportive relationship allowed her wellbeing to flourish at a next level, and since then, she has deepened in her process of healing important family relationships.
Alongside this emotional and relational shift, she experienced more spaciousness to consider and explore what really matters in life, and became more devoted to developing literal brute strength and confidence in her outer physical form. Bit by bit, and in applied hands-on experiences, she has grown her knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics, and finds common sense relief, possibility, and understanding in the ancestral health paradigm. To this end, she is pursuing additional certification as a coach through Mark Sisson’s Primal Health Coach Institute.
With a history of family members affected by chronic mental, autoimmune, and other painful conditions and addictions, Erin realized her larger mission for everyday life was learning what she can to practice prioritizing a high quality of Life. Paramount to this effort is increasing frequency and variety of fulfilling experiences daily, and prioritizing opportunities for deeper connection with loved ones and others. This feels like the gateway and necessary foundation for all things health and healing.
With each passing year on earth, she gets better at sharing resources and her efforts with family and community. She studied at a slow yet integrated pace for two decades, pursuing courses, apprenticeship and mentorship with experienced healers and community elders.
Erin loves to ask questions, strike up conversations, hear stories, and especially she loves to entertain and throw parties. The canvas of home is where she loves to ‘paint with food’ arranging beautiful plates full of color and texture. The canvas of ‘out and about’ is where she loves to gather insights and weave together new understandings of the world around her. Photography and temporary playful nature sculpture are other loves, as are her Love and furry critters at home.
