8. Anietie (Tia) Ukpe-Wallace of The Masterful Art of Self-Care

We’re now into the New Year! For January 2020 I’m hosting a 30 Day 5 Minute Movement Challenge over on my social media pages (Facebook and Instagram). To find all the details of how to participate and to possibly win some awesome prizes click here!

Anietie Ukpe-Wallace, also known as Tia, has had a life-long fascination with the human body and its inner workings. Beginning with a formal introduction to movement in college, she has continued that journey ever since. As a yoga teacher of 8 years in the East Bay, her practice morphed from one of structure and ego to one of humility and independent thinking. After her own struggles surrounding her pelvic floor, she has grown a love for learning and understanding this part of the body that is rarely talked about and sometimes even misunderstood.

Being a mom has also introduced her to the necessary world of self care. She is extremely passionate on the topic of self care being accessible and attainable to all and she has developed The Masterful Art of Self-Care’s 4 tenets: nutritional health, physical health/movement, mental health and pelvic floor/sexual health as being key components to everyone’s self care.

She recently graduated with a Doctorate degree in physical therapy, is in the completion stages of becoming a Women’s Health Coach through the Integrative Women’s Health Institute and is also the host of the podcast, The Masterful Art of Self-Care.

Trigger Warning

I want to gently provide a trigger warning for miscarriage and stillborn birth. In today’s episode Tia shares vulnerably around her experience with her own miscarriage, so I encourage you to listen to your heart to know if you’re in a space to process that story.
